If you’ve ever had water damage from a flood, be it outside water or a broken pipe, you know how thoroughly discouraging it is. When the water recedes or is cleaned up, you’re staring at furniture and carpets coated with mud.
Years ago I was visiting an acquaintance of mine. He was showing me around the home he’d recently purchased. Out in the front yard he picked up an old water valve. It was corroded and full of scale. He said, “This is my $15,000 valve.” It didn’t look like it was worth a quarter so I asked him why. “When I was inspecting the house thinking about buying it, the water pressure was low. Since the house was older I thought it may need to be re-plumbed. They knocked $15,000 off the price and I signed the deal. When we closed and I got the keys, the first thing I did was check the valve. I replaced it and the pressure was perfect. A $15 valve saved me $15,000.”
