plumbing horror stories

By January 24, 2018 No Comments

Every now and then, you’ll come across a job that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. It could be a bathroom suit that looks like a child fitted it, or a customer with an excessive number of pet snakes that roam freely around the house. Surviving these jobs, however, is like a badge of honour and makes going home at the end of the day that little bit sweeter.

To show that we’re all in it together, we’re compiling a list of plumbing horror stories that have all come from our installer network on Twitter. Since posing the question for the first time last week, we’ve had some shocking entries! One installer visited a home that had 16 cats and seven dogs. We hope he wasn’t allergic…

Another entry details how after their toilet broke, a homeowner resorted to using the bath, until this then clogged up! Now that is a horror story.

Despite hearing these, we haven’t been put off and we want to hear more! Whether it’s a DIY disaster you had to fix, or you inherited a job from a cowboy, let us know by tweeting us at @HIAwards. You can also comment underneath this blog post.

All entries will be collated into an article, but will your horror story make the Top 10?

Every person that tells us a plumbing horror story will be put into a prize draw to win an Amazon Echo Dot. You’ve got until the end of February to submit your stories.

We can’t wait to hear them!
