Here are some tips about Portland Plumbing Repair
Are you in Portland trying to fix a plumbing problem? If you're handy, you may be up for a do it yourself plumbing project. Many people can do minor repairs themselves.
But sometimes you need a licensed, experienced plumber to fix a plumbing problem.
In a perfect world, when you call a plumber, a trouble-shooting problem solver will show up. You'll describe your plumbing situation or need, and the plumber will do his or her best to resolve it for you.

This scene happens all the time. Why all the pressure to throw out old fixtures and buy new instead?
Because time is money, and the big plumbing companies make more money if their technician completes a lot of “service” calls. And it's faster to sell customers new faucets than it is to repair their existing ones.
In fact, too many licensed plumbers have NO IDEA how to fix plumbing fixtures. They're not really service plumbers, but instead are really just installers.
Are there still plumbing contractors that can actually repair your plumbing? Yes... we can!
The words “service call” implies service... and not “pushy" salespeople. When you call Brians Plumbing for your repair needs... you can talk to Brian himself about-
