3 Things You Need to Know Before Choosing a Plumbing Company

We are all tempted to save money by doing repairs ourselves. With forethought and preparation, do-it-yourself projects can turn out well. However, in some cases, we can actually make the situation worse and needed repairs become even more expensive. Unlike other areas in your house, plumbing systems usually need a professional’s touch. Amatuer repairs can lead to significant system damage and even injury. Here are three things you should know before choosing a plumbing company:

Avoid Common DIY Mistakes

Homeowners tend to overestimate their handyman skills. What seems like an easy fix can become a big problem without the tools and expertise of a professional. Expert plumbers recommend the following:

  • Do not use chemicals to unclog drains.
  • Do not flush “flushable” products down your toilet; they don’t disintegrate fast enough.
  • Do not try to fix drains without knowing how to turn off the main water valve.
  • Replace your hot water heater approximately every 10 years.
  • Do not try to drain or test the temperature on your hot water heater without professional assistance.

Learn How to Spot a Failing Water Heater

Your water heater is a time bomb — it’s just waiting to fail and cause catastrophic damage to your home. Watch out for signs that your water heater might fail. Most water heaters last around 10 years, so you should be wary as your water heater approaches this age. Your water heater will begin to make odd rumbling noises when it is nearing the end of its life cycle.

Keep an eye out for puddles of water around your water heater, usually indicating a leak. This may mean that tank expansion due to heat has caused your water heater to crack. Additionally, if you’ve noticed that your hot water has rust in it, the inside of your water heater tank is beginning to break down and needs replacement.

Do Your Research

Research plumbing companies to ensure that employees will respect your home. Does the plumbing company perform background checks on its employees? Does the company maintain a clean work area policy? Will they clean up after they work on your plumbing? Call company representatives before choosing a company; it’s the quickest way to get information if you can’t find any online.

Do not choose a plumbing company that refuses to disclose important information to you. Your home and the safety of your family comes first, so be picky and choose a plumbing company with an established reputation.
