Fred opened the office door, only to be greeted with a flooded room. It was Thursday morning and his Boss had a meeting scheduled with some of his clients in the board room, which was also flooded. He squelched across to his office and switched on his computer. While he waited for it to load, he scouted the office to see if he could find the source of the leak.
To his dismay he found water pouring from a ceiling panel, roughly where he knew the hot water system was located. The panels in the roof were crumbling and two had already completely fallen away. The worst part was, he didn’t know where the isolation valve for the hot water system was, or where the water mains for the building were! He raced back to his computer and googled a plumber in Botany. He dialled the first number and was glad when a connection was made. After all, it wasn’t even 7am yet! Fred explained his predicament and a plumber was dispatched to his office immediately.
The Plumber set up a ladder and accessed the roof space through the missing ceiling panels. He found the isolation valve and cut the water to the tank. The waterfall stopped. He inspected the tank and climbed down the ladder.
“You’ll need a new tank,” he explained to Fred. “The one up there is about thirteen years old and it’s burst in the middle. I’ve stopped the water flowing into it, so any more water leaking out will just be the water settling below the burst section.” No one else was in the office; the Accountant and the Boss were yet to get there. Fred excused himself and made a series of frantic calls with the quotes. His Boss agreed to the work. He’d be there within half an hour to pay, so the Plumber got to work removing the old tank and installing the new one after he’d picked it up from the suppliers.
Although he couldn’t do anything about the sodden carpet, the Plumber helped to pull it up off the floor after he’d installed the tank, with the help of the office staff as they arrived. It was something they would have to deal with later. The Botany Plumber cleaned up the mess of the sodden ceiling tiles, and knocked out two more treacherous looking ones on the Boss’ request.
