Why hire a professional plumber?

Danielle Onat | 08/15/2017 | Posted in Plumbing

Plumbing is possibly the most important function in your home, but isn’t often thought about until something goes wrong. A spewing pipe, kitchen sink backup, or toilet installation gone wrong… it’s enough to throw your home and family out of whack. Before you grab a wrench and watch a fuzzy YouTube video, consider hiring a professional plumber to make the fix.

Here’s why a professional is often the best choice:

Mistakes can be costly.

You wipe your brow, admire your handiwork, and all of a sudden, the leak intensifies. Water seeps into your carpet, warps your hardwoods, and before you know it, you’re firing off repair checks faster than you can say ‘regret’. Oftentimes, well-intentioned DIY-ers end up causing more harm than good by attempting repairs themselves. What would have been a relatively small fix (and an inexpensive cost) ends up being a major repair that you must call a plumber for anyway.

The following issues should always be handled by a professional:

  • Extensive water damage
  • Frozen pipes
  • Installation of new toilets, sinks, tubs, or pipes
  • Weak water pressure throughout the home
  • Remodeling or new construction that requires building permits
  • Septic tank leaks
  • Sewer line stoppage, breaks, or leaks
  • Water heater issues

It’s complicated work.

Every plumbing issue and installation is different. As much as the thousands of videos and online DIY tutorials try to help, they are no substitute for professional work. With years of expertise, special tools, and a solid understanding of the intricacies of plumbing systems, Washington Energy Services’s Lynnwood & Tacoma plumbers can recommend solutions, repair issues, and install new products accurately and efficiently.

 You’ll gain peace of mind.

When you’re under the sink or disassembling the toilet, can you ever truly be sure that you’ve done it correctly? When you hire a professional plumber, you’re not just receiving expertise during the repair—you’re getting a guarantee that your sink, faucet, bath, or toilet will continue to function in the future. To ensure long-term peace of mind, always make sure that your plumber is willing to stand behind their work after the check has been written.
