The heating and the hot water not working... It got to do with the timer...

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.

Contractor's Assistant: Sometimes plumbing issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Plumber I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Plumber should be aware of?
