Drainlayers and plumbers often need to work together on new building sites, to make sure that all of the waste and outlet fittings match up to the drains. Often plumbers find themselves doing their own drainlaying, because their preferred drainlayer is hard to come by and is often busy. This is one of the more unpleasant sides of the plumbing business, as it can often mean a lot of hard work digging a trench and even digging up an existing sewer.
Plumbers and drainlayers Dunedin who have to dig up existing sewer lines can make themselves feel a lot better about their work by reminding themselves that they are public Health Specialists. They are really the only barrier in the average home to the spread of terrible sewer born diseases.
Plumbers often find themselves working in dirty situations, and this can be under a kitchen sink or in the bathroom removing the toilet and unblocking it. Generally at the end of every day the average plumber needs to discard their work clothes into the washing machine and they need to have a good clean shower.
Similarly the drainlayer is generally going to end each day a lot dirtier than they started, and they will also need to wash their work clothes and have a good cleansing shower. For all plumbers and drainlayers the big problem can be that they need to do their paperwork once they get home, and after a long tiring day and the need for a good shower and then dinner this can be a very unattractive proposition. Nowadays the modern plumber and drainlayer will have an app on their mobile that will allow them to track all their travel and the jobs they work on, to work out the number of hours they have been on a job and then to email out the invoice to the client immediately the job is finished. Plumbers have been known to take a call while under the sink and finish the call by sending a full quote to the caller, and then sit in the van after finishing the job and send the invoice to the homeowner. This means that they have no paperwork to do when they get home, and for most plumbers and drainlayers this can be life changing.
One big advantage for plumbers and drainlayers is that any repair work they do is generally an emergency for the householder, and so the householder is only too happy to get the work done in as short a time as possible, and are prepared to pay exorbitant rates for this privilege. Plumbers and drainlayers sleep happily in the knowledge that virtually no household is a brave enough to tackle the kind of emergencies that plumbers and drainlayers deal with everyday virtually in their sleep.
