Should I Call a Plumber, or Can I Fix it Myself

Minor plumbing issues don’t always need the help of a professional. If you’re handy, you might want to do some of the work yourself, and that’s totally up to you. However, you should know which situations can be fixed yourself and when you should call in the professionals.

What Do I Need to Know?

There are a few factors that you should consider before you take on a plumbing project yourself. First, you need to have the right tools to get the job done. Plumbers already have these tools, while you may need to acquire new things.

You might also have issues with assessing what the actual problem is, and this can lead to more serious problems later. Finally, consider if the costs and time you’ll need to invest in the issue may or may not be worth it.

What Can I Fix Myself?

Some fundamental toilet issues can be fixed relatively simply on your own. Replacing a flap or reconnecting the chain are manageable problems. Additionally, you can fix some drain clog issues. Hot water can do wonders in a lot of situations, especially with more minor clogs. Leaky sinks may also be as simple as tightening a pipe.

What Should I Leave Up to the Experts?

Any issues that require serious attention, time, or tools should be left to the professionals. We have the knowledge and experience necessary to repair many issues quickly. Also, anything where there is high water pressure should be handled by someone with the knowledge to do it. These situations can be potentially dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing.
