3 Common Plumbing Repairs to Handle Now

There are lots of plumbing repairs that you may be tempted to put off—or even try to attempt yourself. Professional plumbers know that DIY plumbing repairs are generally bad news for all concerned. After all, they can cause further problems in your home and cause us to have to spend more time fixing the damage. All of that adds up to bigger repair bills for you.

But although we don’t want you to spend any money unnecessarily, our experience has taught us that it’s better for homeowners to be proactive about certain types of plumbing repairs. Here are three common plumbing issues that you should address sooner rather than later.

  • Clogged drains: You may think these are easy enough to fix with a drain cleaner you buy at the store. However, these cleaners can be dangerous if used improperly. They can also damage your pipes and any equipment a plumber may use. When you call us first, we’ll completely clear the clog, giving you better results without ruining your plumbing.
  • Water heaters: Most people don’t think about their water heaters until they quit working—or worse, cause a flood in your home. Consider replacing your water heater if it’s over 10 years old. You may even want to invest in a tankless water heater that provides more hot water at a lower energy cost.
  • Hoses: Just like water heaters, hoses fail without any warning. Call a plumber to inspect the hoses on your washing machine and dishwasher and replace them if necessary. Many homeowners are turning to stainless steel hoses for better protection.
