Thank you so much I cannot express how happy I am. I called Zambezi in on the off chance to get a second quote for a gas leak (my usual plumber said I needed a new gas pipe at over $5000) $300 later, I didn’t need a new gas pipe run I just needed the kinko replaced. Guess I have a new plumber I will be handing out your cards to all my family.
