Guiding members through a repair and educating them so they understand the “why.”
Take your time, research it, execute it. Don’t stress, everything is fixable.
Safety is the #1 priority. I always isolate all potential hazards before beginning any project.
Take your time and don’t rush the job.
Well, that’s a tough question, because I like to believe that every day is a success. I will say that the moment I knew I was good at my job was when I started having customers ask for me to come back to their homes to fix or service their plumbing because they trusted my quality of work. That’s memorable to me!
I had a customer who wanted a HALO 5 Whole House Water Treatment System, but he was on the fence about wasting water as a result of the system’s weekly cycle. So, I asked him if he wanted to use the discharged water for his plants. He said, “Wow! You can do that?” And, I said, “Well, of course I can.” I went and got some irrigation tubing and was able to successfully route the discharged water to his planter.
