Need a plumber?
Through the magic of cable TV and the internet, many home owners are left with the idea that they need not ever hire a professional plumber to do any work in their home. Many plumbing tasks are doable on your own, but there are others that should only be done by professionals.
One repair you should never attempt your self is trying to re-route or change copper pipe. Copper pipe requires a blow torch to connect. Unless you are a professional welder with proper equipment, you should not endanger yourself in this way.
Do not attempt to re-route sewer lines without a professional. Small mistakes with your sewer lines can lead to thousands of dollars in damage, and possibly a toxic spill to clean up.
Installing a dishwasher can seem like a simple task, but in reality a lot can go wrong. The water and drainage lines can get bent or break, leading to massive leaks in your walls or messy back ups in your drains. You should always have a plumber install your new dishwasher for you.
If you have a nasty clog on your pipes, or an object stuck in your toilet you should always call a professional plumber to extract it. Pouring harsh chemicals down your drain, or attempting to poke the clog out with a sharp object could cause holes or cracks in your pipes. Old pipes especially will already have some corrosion, and will be prone to breaking easily. Do not believe the commercials for harsh drain cleaners! Call a plumber!
One of the most dangerous and costly areas homeowners get into when they try to avoid calling a plumber is hot water tank instillation. Mistakes with a hot water tank can lead to natural gas hook ups gone wrong, escaped steam that causes mold growth, and major floods!
It is natural for a homeowner to want to save money by avoiding paying a plumber to clear a clog or install an appliance. However, many end up costing themselves more money in the long run when a repair gone wrong causes damage to their home.
