Why Hire a Professional Plumber vs Doing It Yourself?
Being handy around the house or having some level of experience performing basic maintenance or repairs at your company means you can take care of routine fix-it tasks without having to hire a professional.
It’s admirable when individuals have sufficient skills to assess problems and then come up with a solution.
If you lack formal plumbing training under the guidance of an experienced professional, and if you are not certified, you run the risk of making costly mistakes.
You’ll have to bring in professionals to clean up the mess and then take care of installation, maintenance, or repairs.
For insight, here are some points to consider about the benefits of hiring a professional plumbing company rather than trying to take care of this complicated and essential work yourself as an amateur:
- Commercial plumbers and residential plumbers must be trained, certified, and licensed. If work is performed by the homeowner or business owner, it will typically void the manufacturer warranty. That means you won’t enjoy the protection you paid for when you purchased the fixtures.
- While a person who embraces the do-it-yourself approach may have some awareness of how plumbing systems work, it takes a practiced eye to diagnose what’s wrong with equipment, fixtures, pipes, filters, pumps, and other elements in your system.
- Professionals in the plumbing industry carry all the tools and supplies they need in their service vehicle. Compare that to the typical DIY scenarios where you have to make repeated trips to a hardware store until you have the correct items to finish a plumbing project.
- Unlike amateurs, expert plumbers see and understand the entire system. They know how to identify the source of a leak or faulty equipment.
- A certified, trained plumber can notice minor problems before they become more difficult and expensive to repair. Ordinary homeowners and businesspeople likely do not have this same awareness.
What Are Some Common Residential and Commercial Plumbing Issues?
Over the years, ARS/Rescue Rooter has taken on a wide variety of plumbing problems in commercial and residential settings. Here are some of the most common issues that customers call us to help solve:
- Water backflow: This is an annoying situation where water starts backing up in a toilet, bathtub, or sink. It requires immediate attention.
- Toilet keeps running: Usually, the culprit is a broken toilet flapper. The longer you wait to have this repaired, the bigger your water bill will be.
- Water pressure is abnormally low: Problems with pressure occur if the pipes are old or clogged or when the pressure regulator is failing.
- Bad odors from sewer: This is typically a problem in industrial and commercial buildings rather than homes. Odor often happens when a pipe is clogged.
- Leaky or dripping faucets: The noise from a faulty faucet can keep people awake at night. It could stem from a worn-out washer, or the handle might not be turning off all the way.
- Noise coming from the water heater, or the unit isn’t heating water: Loud, unusual sounds indicate something has gone awry with a component, such as the power or temperature control
- Pipe damage: Broken pipes present special challenges in any location, but are particularly difficult to take care of in commercial settings, where the lines are often much longer than in homes.
