If you are at home and hear the constant drip of your faucet or a whistle after a toilet flush, you may start thinking about how you can fix your plumbing problem yourself.
While DIY is a commendable approach to some homeowner activities, your plumbing isn’t one of them. Many people think that plumbers are only necessary during a plumbing emergency or when multiple small plumbing problems start to accumulate.
The reality is that you should hire a licensed plumber to help out anytime a need arises; even what you may deem an “easy” job.
Licensed Means Trained and Insured
Whenever you need help in any situation, training and experience should be key criteria in selecting qualified assistance. This is especially true for any issue with your plumbing.
Licensed plumbers are trained to approach every plumbing issue with professionalism. This means that even your smaller plumbing problems can get fixed with expediency and precision.
Not only is a licensed plumber trained, but they are insured and will most likely guarantee the workmanship they put into your plumbing. An unlicensed person or DIY project can’t offer the same assurance.
Thus, if something goes wrong during the process, not only are you liable for any damages or injuries, but you now could have to pay extra to fix any mistakes that were made in the process.
Even Smaller Fixes Require Specific Equipment
While you may be prepared to stick that wire hanger down your drain to unclog a pipe, we strongly advise against it. Using the wrong tools on a common plumbing problem can result in more damage than repairs.
Avoid a full-blown plumbing emergency and let a licensed plumber handle the job. Each of our plumbers comes prepared with a kit of specialized equipment that can safely fix a small plumbing issue.
Even if you already know the types of tools required for a job well done and don’t have them, a licensed plumber can save you the time and money spent tracking down the tools you need.
Sometimes a Small Problem Is Just the Surface Issue
Even something as simple as a clogged toilet can only be a symptom of a much larger plumbing problem like a clogged sewer line. While you may feel confident in fixing a smaller problem, if it’s connected to a larger threat, it’s only going to return and create further, more serious plumbing problems.
A licensed plumber can easily diagnose the root cause of your small plumbing problems and help you avoid the stress that comes with an overwhelming plumbing emergency.
