Your free time is important and if you are leading a busy life you really want to enjoy the time that you have off. I lead a busy life and I was looking forward to my Friday evening in with friends and family as we had planned to have a nice dinner together. When I arrived however my wife told me that the issue of a leaky pipe under the sink had become worse.
My heart sunk, but I decided to face the issue head-on and have a go at fixing it myself, as the local plumbers in Kensington might be expensive, I thought. I located my rarely used tool box and began to focus on the issue at hand. I began by removing the problematic pipe with a spanner. The result was a collection of food that had become stuck within the pipe. I carefully removed all this before placing the pipe back into place. However, I was given a nasty surprise when I realized that the pipe was actually far more difficult to replace that it was to remove.
I really had to force the pipe back into place and in doing so, I heard a small cracking noise. Suddenly my heart dropped, and I realized that I may have not done such a good job as I initially thought. It slowly dawned on me that I would need to get some professional help to resolve the issue at hand. This was made even worse by the fact that it was out of working hours and the cost of a professional plumber in London would be far more expensive.
The lesson that I learned was that you should always invest in a professional plumbing service, no matter how big the issue is that you have. I could have resolved the issue weeks earlier for a much smaller cost, but I put it off and now I’m paying the price.
