    The last post about plumbers is a year old so I started a new thread.

    We have been smelling some gas recently so I went down to the basement to clean out plug and trap (after reading some suggestions online) when I touched the clean out plug cover the the cover and the pipe attached to it disintegrated. I am assuming this might be a costly fix and might entail replacing much of our home’s original main line because of this and generally slow drain problems. Our home was built in 1925.

    Does anyone know any good plumbers that might accept payments/any other helpful ideas would be much appreciated.

    I dont have an inexpensive plumber for you, but in terms of worries about gas, and since you live in Grandview, I would call the fire department to come out with their sniffers to see if you truly have a leak. I dont want you to blow yourself, and me if you live close, to bits. I thought I smelled gas and called them and they were there with two guys and two diffenernt sniffers in 15 minutes and went over the whole house. Perk of being a Grandview resident.

    I assume he is talking about sewer gas.

    Whoops, thought he meant the flammable stuff. Plumbers work on that too.

    Derm I’m still confused. The grandview fire dept will come to your home with natural gas detectors and inspect your gas lines for leaks? Is this service free?

    I smelled what I thought was Natural Gas before, called the Grandview fire department with my concern and they showed up 15 minutes later and walked my house including stove, basement, furnace and fireplace with two sniffers to make sure there were not any leaks. It was free. Our cops and firefighters are the bomb. They have fixed problems for me instantaneously in the past.

    I’ve used A. Mann Plumbing out of Westerville in the past – great service. Their slogan is “Don’t call a boy to do A. Mann’s job!”…heh heh heh

    I don’t know if they would accept payments (probably not) but I have had very good luck with Truxall plumbing over the last 10 years. I initially called them to give me a second estimate on what another company wanted to change me >$2000 to fix. Truxall came up with an entirely different solution for $300.
