Henry Drake is an average person, works nights, lives in a single story home, and has all the newest gadgets. He also had the dreaded water drip. The drip became an obsession and Henry could not take it any longer. He decided to call a professional plumber. The plumber came and told him it would cost him $300 to repair. Henry did more homework on the Internet and finally called my Yahoo advertisement. He explained that he had a custom water faucet and the drip was very difficult to sleep with during the day.
