Local plumber warns of scams as it may take days for busted pipes to be fixed
HOUSTON – The latest episode of Texas’ unprecedented winter storm has homeowners at a loss with busted pipes. Many local plumbing companies are stretched thin dealing with a sudden volume in calls for help with supplies for the jobs dwindling. ARS Rescue Rooter, a local plumbing company that has been serving the Greater Houston area for years, said the best way to manage the issue is for the pipes to be fixed properly. “We fixed six to seven pipes,” Teeter said. Many local plumbing businesses are swamped as the walls caved in and destroyed pipes after the wintery weather, according to Teeter.
