Plumbing technicians specialise in installing, repairing and maintaining piping systems and water flow. But the job isn’t as easy as you think. They don’t just fix leaking fixtures or clogged drains. Plumbers also ensure that venting and heating systems function properly.
DIY options are now made available for almost any task including household repairs. However, plumbing is an area that should be handed to experts. According to many plumbers in South Perth, plumbing works are not only dangerous but also illegal in some states.
If any of the following situations arise, you need a licensed plumbing technician:
1. Installing or replacing a water heater
If the boiler breaks or leaks, you need a new one right away. Think twice before attempting to replace it by yourself. You need proper tools for the job. A plumber can efficiently bring a new one, install it and make sure that it works.
2. Repairing frozen water pipes
Frozen water pipes are bad news. A section of the frozen pipe may burst which may result to a flooded basement or added repairs. While most DIY guides recommend thawing the pipes, plumbers prefer to replace the frozen section.
3. Blocked sewer line
Sewer line stoppage can clog your bathroom. Unless you want filthy water continuously coming out of the drains, better call a plumber. The stoppage may be caused by a bad plug in the main sewer line. Plumbers have the proper equipment to clean the drain without damaging the pipes.
Easy fixes and do-it-yourself repairs can take a lot of your valuable time. Furthermore it can only make the problem worse. Only few have the so-called handyman’s thumb so don’t try and fix something you know you cannot.
