August 5, 2015
We know how it goes. You want to get your hands dirty a bit, turn a couple of wrenches, and show that you know a thing or two about plumbing. There is certainly a time and place for that, but sometimes you are better off calling a plumber. There are many DIY things you can do at home, but the problem is that sometimes without a trained plumber on hand, things can go wrong and get even worse. Here are some plumbing problems that are best left to the pros. Don’t try these at home!Broken Boiler
If you find yourself without hot water, it can be very uncomfortable situation. Not being able to shower or do much of anything else can be a real burden for you and your family. Aside from the quick check of the thermostat, or a simple pilot relight, it is necessary to call the pros for this one - the reason being that there are so many intricate things about the boiler that a professional knows how to handle that you might not. On top of that, the amount of damage that could be done to your home from a mishandling is gigantic.Frozen Pipes
Pipes can freeze when it’s cold out and there isn’t very much you can do to stop it. Professionals will have the tools and experience to make sure that your pipes get back in working order. If you think that heat simply melts away cold, and all you need to do is heat up the pipes, you are in for a bad time. Don’t take risks with this one.Installing appliances
If you buy a nice shiny new appliance like a fridge or a dishwasher, it can be tempting to try and put it in yourself. Don’t. If the company you purchased it from doesn’t install, or you bought it second hand, then make sure you get a pro to put it in. There are so many things with major repercussions that can go wrong. It isn’t worth your trouble. Trust us.
It can be tempting to do things yourself at home. It’ll save you money for one, and you will look awesome to friends and family! But it isn’t all fun and games.
