You can tell a lot about a place by how robust the plumbing is. So, so very much. I know this because I come from a long line of plumbers stretching all the way back to the days of Yore. Gore is a period of history that officially extends from the late Medieval period (before that was the Dark Ages) to the late 1700s (that’s when it becomes Yesteryear). That’s right…we were plumbing when plumbing wasn’t even a real thing. Our family has always been extremely progressive.
Unfortunately, we’ve had to move around quite a bit until we finally settled in Melbourne. The sewers of Paris were awful, the plumbing of Istanbul continues to be a joke to this very day, and the drain replacement professionals working in Melbourne are the only ones that meet our extremely lofty standards. Efficient plumbing, pipes and sewer systems are essentially the best way to ascertain the level of advancement of a civilization, so here we are, with quite the beauty of a system of tunnels. Oh, trust me…we ran the taps, flushed the toilets and pressed our ears against the walls in every single home we looked at. A few creaky pipes, but that was the extent of it. We made sure this city was going to be a surefire investment for the future, when we retake our plumbing empire and rule over all life, at least all life that wants hot and cold water when they turn on the tap.
They use drain cameras here, you know. Now THAT is something that they didn’t have back in the days of Yore, and not even Yesteryear. The drain repair guys around here most definitely know their stuff, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be setting up shop in Melbourne, drain camera inspection capital of the world.
It’s not currently known as that, but once it becomes The City of Plumbing, it’s going to need a catchy subtitle.
