For the most part, our plumbing systems do their jobs very well. However, when they have trouble, it’s hard not to notice. Low water pressure, dripping faucets, cold water blasting out of your shower — plumbing issues need to be resolved as quickly as possible. Many people will search their problem on the internet and try to fix it themselves. They think they can save money and inconvenience by quickly putting the problem behind them. While a can-do attitude is a great thing, it isn’t your friend when it comes to plumbing. In fact, it can get you in a lot of expensive trouble.
Part of what gives people the confidence to tackle their plumbing problems is the misconception that plumbing is simple. It isn’t. Plumbing systems are surprisingly intricate, and they can cause catastrophic damage to your home when damaged. If you aren’t convinced, here are a few reasons why you should give us a call instead of working on your plumbing yourself.
Why DIY Plumbing Is a Bad Idea
Lack of Knowledge
- You may understand your plumbing somewhat, but unless you’re a professional yourself, you probably only know enough to make yourself dangerous. Even if you know a lot about plumbing, chances are good that you don’t have the experience to make that knowledge truly effective. Lack of training doesn’t just put your system at risk for damage; inexperienced DIY plumbers have actually contaminated their water supplies. Instead of putting yourself at risk, contact us today for expert, lasting solutions.
Higher Repair Bills
- People don’t want to call a plumber because they don’t want to pay that plumber. Unfortunately, many DIY plumbers just make their plumbing problems more expensive to fix. As we said, plumbing systems are intricate and must be handled with experienced care. Otherwise, you can end up needing water damage repair and pipe replacement, both of which are very expensive. Instead of using your knowledge of plumbing to try to solve the problem, use it to clearly explain what is wrong to a professional who can fix it without causing damage.
Making the Situation Worse
- You may be facing a small leak, but if you mess with it, you could have a full flood on your hands. Tending to plumbing systems requires the right tools as well as proper experience. This is a combination that DIY plumbers just don’t have. When you’re facing a problem and you’re tempted to just get your toolbox and the internet, pause and consider what could actually happen. It isn’t worth the risk. Call us instead!
