I’ve never called a plumber for anything. Probably never called anyone for anything, now that I think about it- except one time when my AC went out.
I’ve got this issue with 1 of my bathrooms. The shower has never had hot water, and right now I don’t think it even turns on. We’ve just always used the second bathroom for showers. Now, it would be much more convenient to use the broken shower (which is the only 1 with a tub, too).
While I am not a “handy” person, I’ve used online instructions, manuals, Youtube to DIY repair several things on my cars and house- which I never imagined I would be able to do. Being poor influenced that, too.
I have a decent chunk of “extra” money coming this week and think I will just call a plumber (I guess that’s who I should call?). Of course I don’t want to get ripped off or anything either. I still sorta have an itch to try to DIY, too. Especially if it’s going to be more than a few hundred bucks.
Do plumbers typically charge a trip fee or something and then look at it and give an estimate? Should I be trouble-shooting anything obvious?
