What Is Better To Do With Your Plumbing Issues, Call An Expert Or Opt For A DIY

November 27, 2020 Roman Misan

When we have plumbing problems like leaky faucets, drain blockages, or clogged toilets, we are often tempted to get it fixed ourselves. There is nothing better than good DIY skills to help us save money on plumbing services. However, not all plumbing problems are that easy to fix and some require the assistance of an expert plumbing technician. Now, the question is what are the plumbing issues that you can solve by yourself, and what are those that should be handled by a professional plumber?

Toilet Issues.

A clogged toilet is often a problem you can fix yourself. All you need to do is to check if the problem comes from the tank or the bowl and pipes. In the tank, make sure that there is nothing preventing water from filling the tank or flowing down to the bowl. If everything is fine with the tank and you still got a flushing problem, then you might have a clogged toilet. In this case, use a plunger or auger to break up the blockage. In case all that doesn’t solve your problem, then it is better to get professional help as you might be facing a more serious issue.

Leaky faucets.

A leaky faucet is an easy problem to fix. . The first thing to do when trying to fix your leaky faucet is to make sure that your water supply is shut off properly. Then disassemble the faucet and be careful to remember their position on the faucet. Once everything is disassembled use a sponge and vinegar to clean the parts and replace all the worn out and damaged parts of the faucet. When done, reassemble the faucet, open the water supply and check that there are no more leaks.

Poor Water Pressure.

Low water pressure is a problem that might be caused by a more serious problem in your water supply system. Even though cleaning a fixture or trying to unclog the faucets and pipes can solve the problem, we recommend you seek professional help instead. Trying to fix low water pressure yourself might end up causing you more problems than solving them.

Home Construction or Improvement projects.

Home constructions and improvement projects that require plumbing work to be done are better handled by professionals. Expert plumbers know better than anyone what is the best setting and configuration for plumbing systems and fixtures. They also have the training for it and offer a warranty for their services and parts they install in your home.
