    This isn't the first time, I've had a plumber who said he'd be here at a certain time, he said he'd come to visit the next day which he didn't, and he didn't even phone to say he wouldn't make it. Makes you wonder whether they want to make money or not?

    Think it just might be that particular plumber? Why don't you call another one in

    Clearly either something came up or he was a rubbish plumber, not all people are like that, try a different plumber, see if you can get one recommended from a friend/college.
