Professional Plumbers Do the Job Right

Posted by Butter Plumbing

Handy homeowners are accustomed to performing little repair jobs around their homes when the situation calls for it, and there’s always a temptation to extend that towards plumbing problems. Every household runs into a leak, a clog or some similar issue with its plumbing system, and if you’re a do-it-yourselfer, you may be tempted to perform the operation on your own in order to save a little money. In most cases, this is a serious error. Unless the issue can be solved with your plungers and a little elbow grease, it’s always preferable to summon a professional plumber to do the job: even if it looks comparatively minor. There are a number of reasons to do so.

Professionals Use the Right Equipment

Store-bought solutions to plumbing problems such as cleansers or snakes are usually focus on correcting as many issues as possible instead of one single specific issue. That means they usually adopt half-measures that only partially solve the problem. For instance, a chemical cleanser may remove enough of a clog to free up the flow of water, but sections of the clog will remain in place, which means the clog will re-form just a short while later.

Professional plumbers, on the other hand, use high-end equipment like motorized snakes with rotating heads and hydrojetting equipment that can handle the problem more thoroughly and with greater attention to the specific nature of the issue. Such equipment is often quite expensive and wouldn’t be worth the cost for a single homeowner who may only have use for it a handful of times. But professionals make use of them every day, and bring both the equipment and their experience with it to every call they make.

Training and Experience Mean Improved Efficiency

Even the most enthusiastic do-it-yourselfer has likely only seen a given problem a few times before at the most. That makes it difficult to perform an accurate diagnosis or apply the right techniques towards addressing it. With professional plumbers on the other hand, you get the experience that comes with years of on-the-job repairs — as well as proper licensing — which means the issue can be dealt with far more quickly and effectively than it could with any layman.

You’re Covered When the Unexpected Happens

No one wants any unpleasant surprises during a repair job, and with professional plumbers, those risks are kept to an absolute minimum. In the event something unexpected happens, however, a licensed and insured plumbing service means that the homeowner isn’t responsible for those costs. If you undertake repairs yourself and something goes wrong, however, you’re on the hook for any additional repairs, and if you’re not careful that can even extend to injury as well.

If you encounter a plumbing problem and it can’t be fixed within a few minutes by use of a plunger or similar device, your best best is to shut of the water to the affected outlet and call in a professional to do the job right.
