Thank you, moms! I recently put out a calling for a plumber and Wendy replied with a recommendation for "Dave the Plumber." This bit of information proved to be very helpful. This is what I love most about this site!
Anyway, I like to keep the names of these highly recommended handymen on hand just in case. Well, my just in case situation arose yesterday when I woke up and found that my sump pump had conked, only 1 year and 5 months after putting in a new one.
