Plumbing issues are among the most common any homeowner has to face, especially in the winter here in Bergen County, NJ where cold temperatures can wreak havoc with your pipes. An enterprising do-it-yourselfer may be tempted to try repairs themselves rather than call in a professional plumber. This can be a big mistake. The training and experience that comes with professional plumbing can’t be matched by even the most dedicated amateur, and trusting a licensed pro can end up saving you much more than performing the repairs yourself on the cheap.
In many cases, do-it-yourselfers will work with store-bought equipment like drain snakes, perhaps even venturing to a local home improvement center to find something specific. Unfortunately, most equipment of that nature adopts a one-size-fits-all approach, meaning that the problem is only partially fixed. Trained plumbers on the other hand, use specialized equipment that treats the specific problem the right way. Most dilettantes would never use such equipment more than a tiny handful of times at the most, but professionals see similar issues every day and come armed with the right tools for the job.
TRAINING AND SAFETY
You can also add experience and training to the specialized equipment. That means that a professional plumber does a far better job at accurately assessing the problem and coming up with a long-term solution, not just something that kicks the issue down the road for a few weeks or months. Furthermore, it you attempt repairs yourself and cause further damage – or even injure yourself – then you’re on the hook for the damages. A licensed and bonded plumber removes the fear of that from the equation, allowing you to relax and trust that your repairs are being taken care of the right way.
