Plumbing – Not Glamorous, But Boy Can They Add Glamour To Your Life!

Can I just talk about plumbing for a second?

I know that this is not the most exciting or chic thing you can imagine.  After all, plumbers are associated with working behind walls, with exposed parts of their anatomy, trucks full of weird parts, and very high bills that are handed to you with a smile.  Usually you call all plumber when you need something repaired, when you need something fixed during an emergency.  Usually, you are so desperate to get the plumber to do what he has to do, you don’t really think about all the cool things that plumbers can do to make your house look cool, be cool, act cool, and make your life more, yes, I mean this, exciting!

Here are some of the cool things that a plumber can do for you:

Install a crazy out of control shower with body sprays, multiple shower heads, and thermostatically controlled temperature controls.  They can even install one of those “waterfalls” that integrates all of those things into one large unit that is surface mounted. They do a ton of stuff and they look super modern, and they are really easy to install.  But you should get a plumber for that!

Install a super high end toilet, even one with Japanese features like heating, temperature control, washing nozzles for the full Asian toilet experience.

A plumber can set you up with a wifi controlled thermostat so you can control your house temperature from your phone.  Think this is silly? Think again.  Imagine you can control your houses temperature when you are away on vacation.  Imagine you forgot to check the temperature before you left.  Imagine that someone came into your house to feed your dog and left the thermostat up too high?  A wife thermostat doesn’t just save you money, it saves wear and tear on the systems themselves.

What about a wifi controlled water heater? Does anyone remember to turn down the water heater when they run off to Disney world for a week? Why would you want your hot water heater to work so hard to keep your water super hot when you aren’t even home?

How about a custom pot filler over your stove? Talk about a luxury! Now you can just put your pot on your stove, and fill it right from there.  Just like a fancy restaurant! Don’t you feel more glamorous already?

How about a custom waterline to your fish tank? No more carrying buckets of water to the tank.  Just turn on the water.  Your fish will tank you.  Umm. Thank you.

What about a built in hot water dispenser for that chamomile-ginger-lemon-raspberry-yerba-mate infusion you like to have on Sunday mornings? Putting on a kettle will seem downright barbaric when you can just press a lever, drop in your teabag and head out to your hammock with your kindle.

And there is so much more.  So when you think about getting a plumber fix something, next time think about all the cool things you can add to your house so that you feel more upscale, and your life is just a little bit easier.  Don’t you deserve it?

If you are ever in Northern NJ, here’s a plumber in Elizabeth New Jersey  you will really like.  (Click plumber, back in the middle of the last sentence).
