3 Reasons To Avoid DIY Plumbing

We’ve all been there. Something goes wrong in our household and, rather than call for professional help right away, we try to address it ourselves, thus saving money on a service fee. Some home repair jobs can be handled this way, but when it comes to plumbing-related issues, this typically is not the best route to take. 

If you are dealing with a small leak or a clogged toilet, then sure – tackle the job yourself! But if it is a bigger project, such as renovation work, backed up pipes, or low water pressure, then calling in an expert is always your best bet.

Still not convinced? Check out the following reasons why DIY plumbing is usually not the best option.

You Typically Wind Up Paying More

Tackling a job that you were not trained to take on can wind up resulting in some pretty big disasters. Just one minor mishap can leave you with a big mess on your hands and even more damage than you started out with. Should something major go wrong, you will need to call in a plumber anyway, and the problem will be even more costly to fix than it was before.

Many times, people end up experiencing a large amount of water damage, as well. If something goes awry, and you are left with a flooded bathroom, basement, or kitchen, you are looking at hundreds (maybe even thousands) of dollars worth of damages. That’s not even accounting for sentimental items that can never be replaced.

Why take any chances? Better care is just a phone call away, and here at Stadler Plumbing, we would be happy to help you out every step of the way.

You Risk Your Safety

Whether you are dealing with steaming water, pressurized pipes, electrical equipment, or something else, do-it-yourself plumbing can wind up causing an injury before you even realize what went wrong. A licensed plumber knows exactly what type of equipment to use, and they will come with the appropriate gear and protective clothing, as well.

You Will Likely Face Problems Down The Line

Even a seemingly successful DIY job can result in issues down the line. You will be a lot more likely to experience a break down later on, and you could eventually find yourself dealing with leaky pipes or something similar. A temporary fix is never a good solution, especially when it comes to your pipes and plumbing, so work with a professional crew from the start. It is a decision you definitely will not regret.
