Why NOT to do your own Plumbing
Everyone wants to prove they are handy and resourceful while solving problems in their home. Sometimes, you may be able to fix a leak under your sink, an overflowing toilet, or a clog in your drain by yourself. Hurray! You saved some money, and you may have learned a thing or two. However, even though you may have been successful at the time… you may have caused yourself additional stress, damage, and expenses in the future.
You should call a professional, like the licensed and experienced team at Wrench It Up, because they can help you avoid expensive, damaging, and unhealthy problems caused by misguided DIY solutions.
A local licensed plumber can make sure your plumbing system and solutions are up to code in your area. Your DIY solution may have reduced the amount of water leaking from a pipe, or temporarily removed a nasty smell coming from your drains, but if you have not properly fixed the problem up to code and without consideration of the state of your plumbing apparatus, you may void the warranty and cause yourself immense financial stress in the future.
Don’t Over-Do Chemical Drain Cleaners
Repeatedly using liquid drain cleaners on a recurring problem can damage the pipes in your plumbing system, causing even worse problems. Don’t force yourself to routinely fix a small problem that won’t go away; call a professional licensed plumber and they will identify the root of your problem so that you don’t experience greater pain and regret in the future.
Leave Large Jobs to Professionals
Don’t even think of doing major installations or repairs on your own, because you can hurt yourself, damage your home and plumbing system, and cause health problems for your family. Improperly operating plumbing systems can lead to damage and dangerous conditions for your health, so always consult with a professional. Wrench It Up will ensure you get a reasonable price for the right service, and you can be worry-free about the state of your household.
Knowledge is Comfort
Do your research (Like our blog, “8 Things Your Plumber Wishes You Wouldn’t Do”), or ask your plumber about how to properly treat certain appliances so you experience less plumbing problems. Appliances such as your garbage disposal, toilet, water heater, and dishwasher need to be operated properly or you will experience issues that could damage your home and require expensive repairs.
