There are hundreds of how-to books and videos that walk homeowners through DIY projects. As a result, many inexperienced homeowners now attempt to install, replace, or repair their own plumbing. That works in some cases, but a lot of the time projects either do not fix the problem completely or create more issues. DIY jobs can also become expensive and time consuming. As a result, most homeowners hire experienced plumbers with the equipment and skill to diagnose and repair several problems in one visit. Experts also guarantee their work.
Plumbers Have the Right Tools
Few homeowners have the equipment to fix even minor problems with fixtures, appliances, pipes and septic systems. Even if they knew what tools were needed, most could not afford them. Professionals invest thousands of dollars in equipment that includes trucks, pumps, video inspection devices, and tools. When plumbers show up, they bring everything needed to quickly identify the source of issues and to fix many on the spot. They have easy access to additional equipment like replacement fixtures, septic equipment, or water heaters.
Professionals Can Solve Many Problems in One Project
Plumbers have years of training and experience that allow them to identify specific problems. They also know exactly how various issues affect entire homes, so they can map out repairs that permanently fix problems. For example, a client whose bathtub or toilet continually backs up may have clogged drains. Plumbers may clear drains using hydro-jetting, which means they force pressurized water into pipes to clean them. They might also find and fix sewer issues that are contributing to backups. Professionals often resolve all of clients’ issues by making several repairs in a single project.
Experts Get the Job Done Right
Homeowners also count on plumbers to provide quality materials and craftsmanship. Plumbers use the correct materials for each project and ensure that every job meets the highest standards. Homeowners know that professional projects are guaranteed to be up to code.
