Plumbing Repair: A Consumer’s Guide

Getting a licensed plumber is not an option, it’s a necessity.  Quite a few people believe that they can do plumbing repair on their own.  While with some minor repairs, this may be the case, it is not the case with major plumbing issues.  Why do people attempt to do it on their own?  Why do home improvement centers and hardware stores sell millions of dollars in books and equipment every year?  Because many consumers operate under the illusion that it will be cheaper for them to do it themselves.

Unfortunately, the perception of cost savings is just that, a perception.  One wrong move, and instead of installing a new bathroom fixture, you have to call your homeowner’s insurance to explain why your entry foyer is flooded because of an improperly mounted toilet, or a bathtub spigot that happened to pop off.   Plumbing really can be that temperamental.  One nut not tightened correctly, or getting the wrong diameter of pipe can cause your plumbing project to spiral out of control into an expensive nightmare.  You are much better off calling a master plumber in, paying him to do the work and resting a lot easier knowing he has years or even decades of experience behind him.

When you look at it that way, a plumber is not expensive at all.  In fact you’re getting the service at a decided bargain, particularly when you compare it to repairing water damage.  What’s more, improper plumbing can cause another series of problems, everything from structural damage to potential electrical shorts.  And let me ask you a question.  Do you really want to deal with a toilet repair on your own?  Most people don’t, for obvious reasons.

So what are you waiting for?  Call in an expert.  Get yourself a master plumber in New Port Richey, and rest assured that the job will be done right, the first time.
