Why Should I Call a Plumber?
Many times, small plumbing jobs can be completed with a little time and hard work by the homeowner, but if that were the case for all repairs, plumbers would not be in business. The fact is, there are many instances where having a trusted plumber handle your repairs is in your pocket book’s best interests.
When Calling an Experienced Plumber Is Best
Many of the tips and tricks that can be found online for fixing small leaks and clogs are great but do not assume that a quick repair is going to save you from damage. What seems like a small leak may turn into thousands of dollars of repairs down the line if not taken care of professionally.
Here are some situations where a plumber should be consulted:
- No hot water in the home
- When replacing a water heater
- Low water pressure from all faucets
- Frozen pipes
- Water line damage from freezing
- Backed up sewer line
Finding a trusted plumber can be easy. Start by speaking with friends and family members and getting their recommendations. Call these plumbers and ask for their certifications and liability insurance. After choosing one, develop a relationship by calling the plumber out for smaller repairs. In the event that an emergency occurs, it will be helpful to call a plumber that is familiar with your home and plumbing situation beforehand. Remember that A-1 Sewer & Septic is here for your plumbing needs!
It takes time and experience to master the craft of plumbing. Having a trusted plumber that has the necessary experience for small repairs or large projects can make a huge difference.
