These days a lot more people are turning to the Internet for help on DIY jobs. While this can save some money, it may not always save you time, peace of mind, and not even money in the long run! No one is discouraging you from undertaking any DIY jobs, on the contrary, it’s always a good idea to put your own skills to work sometimes. However, there comes a point when it’s just best to bring in the experts.
Also, your level of DIY knowledge will play a big part in what sort of plumbing project you would undertake. Most people know that any jobs involving the likes of electric wiring, hot water, rewiring and installation of a new system should always be handle a professional.
If you’re ever in doubt of when to call in a professional plumber, it’s probably a good idea that you call one just to be safer than sorry. To make things simple, here’s a list of when you should really call in a plumber:
- When replacing, repairing, or clearing any drains. This requires a specialist and equipment. Most store-bought augers are short, and cannot effectively unclog any drain. If not used correctly, they may also damage the pipes. Using products is good for simple clogs, but anything requiring more than a few applications is a job for the plumber.
- Any problems with the water main line? Plumbers have the correct equipment needed to shut off the water from the mains.
- Any job that requires pipes to be installed, replaced or repaired.
- Anything to do with pressure balance issues, installation of new pressure valves.
- Any job involving electrical wiring, hot water, rewiring, and installation of a new system.
However, the most important thing to remember is to always shut off your water valves before starting to do anything concerning the plumbing!
