Plumbing was and is one of the most valuable skills for the development of cities, homes, and entire civilizations. People based their entire lives around where the closest major water source was. Plumbers developed methods to harness the most precious resources in the world to irrigate crops. The success or fall of any one civilization often depended on their access to and control of a water source. One way leaders showed their control was through extravagant displays that everyone would recognize. For example, reports show that Sargon the Great had six toilets in his privy, and his seat was higher than the rest. However, they were quite different from modern toilets in that they had no water to fill the toilet or wash away the waste. We took one major concept from these ancient privies: sewers and cesspools, which provided the blueprints for the sewers used in Atlanta, GA. One of the greatest advances for sewers was the ability to reduce the smell because early cesspools and sewers had no ventilation and stank up the houses they were under. Thankfully, outhouses went from rudimentary structures to more complicated structures, and some became symbols of distinction, as would bathrooms of the well-to-do. Someone even developed a two-story model for when heavy snowfall blocked the entrance to the lower level. Thomas Jefferson devised an indoor privy at his Monticello home by rigging up a system of pulleys that servants used to haul away chamber pots. By 1845, the installation of sanitary sewers began to pay off. When plumbers developed an outlet for waste water, indoor plumbing and working water became possible....
Picking the right plumber can be a daunting process. Many homeowners are so desperate in the moment that they jump into a relationship without asking the right questions or getting to know the company on the other end of the phone. Below are three common mistakes Atlanta, Georgia homeowners make when looking for a plumbing, heating, and cooling expert. They care more about cost than quality Often times homeowners will search for the cheapest plumber instead of looking for a qualified plumber. Many plumbing, heating, and cooling “specialists” offer low pricing because they aren’t licensed or insured. Often times these “specialists” will show up, take your money, and either leave before the job is done, or worse yet, make the problem worse. Then you will call them back, they will charge you more money, and possibly leave you hanging once again. It is so important that you make sure the company you are working with is licensed and insured. A great plumbing, heating, and cooling expert will also be upfront about his or her pricing and put an estimate in writing. They should also be able to offer different options based on your budget, especially if you need new equipment. Instead of looking for a cheap plumber, look for a plumber who will offer you value for your money. Fulton is known for our reliable Client Assurance Pricing. All our pricing is clearly outlined in a catalog so you know exactly what the price is before the work starts. They skip the references Many homeowners are too intimidated to ask for references.

I’m a bit late with this review, but I wanted to once again express my thanks to you and Fulton for another job “well done” on my home. John and Stephen replaced our water line which fed from the county tap to our home. Here’s a short story I penned to describe the repair process, a bit tongue in cheek, and there might be a tiny amount of exaggeration…..
