When to DIY and When not to DIY
There many plumbing repairs or replacements you can do yourself, but at what point should you involve a professional plumber?
Clogged Toilet: A plunger or a drain snake (if you own one) is a go-to solution for clearing your toilet. If you continue to experience back-ups or clogs, a professional plumber is your next step. you may need a different sized snake but if you continue to experience clogs or back-ups, you may need the help of an experienced plumber to figure out if a larger issue exists.
Drain Cleaning: Use a drain strainer. Chemical solutions are only effective on small clogs and are not recommended because they are harmful to the pipes and your overall plumbing. A professional plumber will be able to properly assess what is building in your pipes and how to address it without causing damage to your pipes.
Replacing Pipes: If the U-shape pipe under your sink is cracked, that is easy enough to take with you to a hardware store and find the exact match. When you begin to deal with pipes that are more obstructed and unseen, trust a plumber with access to the proper equipment to handle the replacement or repair. A burst pipe is nothing you want to deal with.
Garbage Disposals: Sometimes you just need a quick reset. Make sure no object fell into your sink drain. Then hit the electrical breaker for your kitchen and press the small reset button directly on the garbage disposal. If your disposal is still not operational, you will need a plumber to asses if it can be repaired or a new model needs to be installed.
Full System Installations: Water heaters, boilers, and well pumps should always be installed and repaired by a professional. There are many parts and settings a professional is trained to identify and accurately adjust for the safety of your home.
