We can’t tell you how many times a household wife will call us with a plumbing request, because the husband thought he could “fix” the plumbing issue only to realize that he had caused further disrepair, creating a true emergency…
So when is the right time for the ‘average Joe’ to give up and call a plumbing professional? The small issue that you are trying to fix to save money could end up costing you more than you realize in the end. Seemingly easy jobs like replacing a faucet washer, or clearing a drain that is clogged are indeed issues that some homeowners can take care of.
However, when it comes to replacing or even clearing household drain blockages, you should rely on a plumbing professional. A seemingly insignificant leak that you think you might be able to fix for hardly anything, could quickly cause significant water damage to your home and cost you additional time – and we all know that time is money.
When you decide to hire a plumber, you definitely need to ensure that the plumber has the correct licenses, as well as insurance necessary to perform the job. While you may not understand the complexity of the plumbing industry, realize that it does require a lot of experience, knowledge of city code, specialized tools, and various material experience. This requires a significant amount of time to learn and practice the trade. Entry-level plumbers usually require years of learning as well as on the job experience.
Different plumbers usually handle different plumbing requests. There are different codes for residential plumbing as well as commercial plumbing. There are also plumbers that specialize in emergency service situations, as well as those that specialize in re-modeling or new construction plumbing.
