Honey! Call the Plumber…
Oh no!…busted pipes, clogged drains, leaking sinks, bathtubs, etc. Many of these things you can fix yourself. Whether you do a search on YouTube to watch a quick video how to fix or replace a water heater, or perhaps how to detect a leak, the information is widely available. The problem is, unless you know what you’re doing, you may actually be causing more problems than you think…thus the title of this article: Honey! Call the plumber.
Hiring a local plumber for a particular repair or installation has not only immediate benefits, but long-term ones as well. A professional plumber will not only fix the emergency, but also advise you on long term solutions. Let’s say you decide to put your house on the market but you had done the plumbing work yourself recently, imagine when the inspector comes in and inspects the plumbing and oops! not up to code, or dangerous etc. That is more money out of your pocket and time wasted.
Another thing to keep in mind is how many types of plumbers are out there. You probably want to get a free estimate from a licensed plumber to get the job done. But know this too: the harder the job, the more money you will spend. If you’ve attempted to fix the problem, perhaps making it worse, it will cost you more money for the plumber to come in and undo what you’ve done and do the job the right way.
Once you find the right plumber, keep his info. Most plumbers will do emergency plumbing repairs as well, so you never know when you might need him again.
