Which Plumbing Jobs Should You Do vs. Which Should You Leave To A Plumber

RH Business Marketing Solutions

Let a Professional Do the Job

When you are a home owner you gain more responsibilities than you were expecting. Some of us, are excited to take them on. Others, would rather have someone else do it. It is perfectly fine to leave certain home repairs to the professionals.

Don't over stress yourself, or take on a job that you can't do. It is better to leave it to a professional that knows what they are doing. Another plus, they have tools that you don't have. It is fine, don't spend money on costly tools that are just going to sit there. At the end, it might end up costing you more. Sit back and let someone else do it.


Things That You Could Do Your Self

  • Taking apart your shower head and cleaning it in vinegar, remember how to put it back together
  • Checking and fixing your toilet flapper and float
  • Checking that your water heater isn't leaking
  • Inspecting your water heater burner, flame should always appear blue
  • Checking that your toilet is not running water continuously
