Plumber..who needs him

It started with counter tops not looking really nice.. as nice is defined as granite and it was not.So, I get it replaced with granite. With a new counter tops, why not a new faucets. Oh, a new and deeper sinks would complete the mission. So, I needed a plumber to do the job. He fixed the faucet fine but did a sloppy job with the garbage disposal. The charge was $350; $60 to come to the house and then $80/hr . It took only one week and it started leaking. I decided to fix it myself with duck tape, after all duck tape in Alaska fixes everything. A friend of mine used it to fix his car after an accident! It worked for some time then leaked again, so my answer was more of the good stuff; more duck tape, but it leaked again. This time my wife had it with the leak and demanded a plumber. I strongly disagreed. What is it a plumber can do that I can't? So I headed to Home Depo a got an assortment of plastic pipes and headed to work. One and half hour of connecting and disconnecting pipes paid off. NO LEAK, Not A DROP. I was proud of my first plumbing job with total cost of $16.

I agree with SBG. In Alaska you are forced to learn how to do things for yourself.
