As we’ve stated in the last couple of blogs, there are many plumbing problems that you can fix without the assistance of a certified technician. You can detect leaks in your toilet, tighten leaky pipes, clear minor drain clogs, etc. Unfortunately, you can’t resolve every plumbing problem yourself. Instead, you should know when to call a licensed technician. This week, Rooter-Man wanted to rescue our clients with a few helpful tips.
Water Heater Repairs
o Previous blogs provided information on how to drain or flush your water heater. If you are experiencing other problems, such as the water heater failing to produce hot water, you should call a licensed technician. Water Heaters are a big purchase, so repairs should be performed by certified technicians who have the tools and training to properly repair the unit quickly and efficiently. Also many manufacture warranties are void if repairs or installation are not performed by a certified plumber.
Replacing the Shower Valve
o This repair may seem simple; however, it is extremely complex. Licensed technicians can provide a great deal of insight to ensure you select the correct valve for your shower. Licensed technicians also have the equipment needed to ensure the shower walls remain undamaged while successfully installing the new valve.
Stoppage in Main Line
o Most homeowners don’t experience a major main line blockage; however, this is a terrible problem. This problem is best left to certified plumbers because it requires special tools that most homeowners do not own. The main line for your home is a vital component for your interior plumbing and repairs should be left to those who know how to repair the problem without causing further damage.
Replacing the Tub/Shower
o Commercials on TV make tub installation look extremely simple. Any plumber will tell you that the project is far from simple. Instead, there are a great number of steps and procedures to follow to ensure the unit continues to function properly for years to come. For example, if any piece is installed incorrectly, it could cause a leak behind the shower wall. This leak could lead to problems with mildew and mold, and you wouldn’t realize it until it was too late.
