Should You Do It Yourself or Call a Fort Lauderdale Plumbing Professional?Many things around your home can be repaired easily as a DIY project such as windows off track, unhinged cabinets, and more. However, most systems should only be handled by a professional even if you understand what you are doing. The smallest error can result in a large and costly repair bill that could have been avoided just by picking up the phone. For instance a clogged toilet may have a toy in it but plunging it may push it further down into the trap, this will cause you to have to call a technician and have your toilet taken out to find the actual cause of the clog. Costing more than it could have then, it would for them to come and just snake the toy out. There are some definite plumbing issues that a homeowner shouldn’t attempt themselves these are:
- Clogged pipes and drains – using chemicals or over the counter drains to unclog your own drain can cause damage to them. If it is a critical situation using these items can make the matter worse. For example a snake may not only NOT clear the pipe it could also damage it in a way that you would require the pipe to be replaced for a large sum of money.
- Faulty pipes – it is not always easy to find the exact problem until you take apart a pipe, they are tricky and complex and you must be sure where the exact problem is when attempting repair, as they can be tricky to reassemble as well.
- Slow pipes, low water pressure- this is caused by many things sediment build up in the aerator of a faucet, or a fractured eroded pipe in your system. call a professional to find out the exact problem.
- Absence or lack of hot water – When there is a problem with the hot water being near to none then it is a problem with the water heater and a specialist should be called. Attempting to fix it yourself could cause water damage and a remodeling job you hadn’t planned for.
- Broken/cracked Toilets – Sometimes the easiest looking job is more complicated under the surface. A toilet is not the easiest fixture to understand and a clog could be a busted pipe or a toy or some other reason. It is always best to call a professional.
- Other reasons – Leaky taps, frozen pipes and replacing or re-routing pipe: these all should be handled by a professional to ensure they are done correctly.
