Most Plumbing Projects Should be Done by Professionals

Do-it-yourself projects can be fun. These creative endeavors engage the entire family and may even bring about a sense of community, not to mention personal achievement. More and more we receive calls from customers looking for various plumbing parts and equipment. These adventuresome few are giving plumbing a go on their own, and we commend them, but when it comes to household plumbing there are some very serious consequences to consider.

Why Try DIY Plumbing? We’re Not So Sure.

The biggest reason people try DIY projects is to save money! Of course! Who wouldn’t want to save a buck or two? The problem though is that when it comes to plumbing, oftentimes do-it-yourself projects quickly escalate to larger catastrophes.

How-to videos are abundant on YouTube, but are these reputable? Are these so-called plumbers fully licensed journeymen who receive ongoing training in the latest technology and safety procedures? Chances are that no. Plus, are you going to stand below a gushing pipe while continuously referencing your laptop for advice—again, no.

You’ll have to find the right parts, equipment, and tools. Then, you’ll need to return to the store to replace a part that was incorrectly sized, and then return for something else. It’s an endlessly time-consuming process that may temporarily alleviate whatever problem you’re having, but with plumbing, temporary just isn’t good enough. Remember: If plumbing isn’t done right the first time, it will lead to greater future expenses.
