D-I-Y or Pick up the Phone?

"Can I do this myself?" many homeowners have asked before making a call to a service professional. Some jobs are brains over brawn, so if you know what you're doing, you can probably do it just fine. However, there's potential for a do-it-yourself disaster - which can cost you more in the long run.

How do you know when to call a professional?

Time - Before you begin a home repair, ask yourself if you have the time to learn how to do it right, analyze the materials and tools needed, and purchase them from the store.

Tools - Many home repairs take special tools. If you don't have them, do you want to buy them? If so, will you ever use them again?

Technology - The plumbing industry has incredible technologies that homeowners can't possibly duplicate. For example, does your drainpipe need cleaning? You don't have to take a plumber's word when you can see pictures yourself.

If you need our help, give us a call. We've got the time, tools and technology to get right to work!


A Little Plumbing Common Sense Goes a Long Way

A few "common sense" practices can help you avoid messy plumbing situations.

Suspect a leak? Check the water meter at a time when no water will be used. Check it again about eight hours later. If the meter has moved, you have a leak.

In case of a serious emergency, you need to know where the shut-off valve. Also, individual fixtures have stop valves.

Keep track of your plumbing's status with an annual inspection by a trained plumber. Want to learn more? Give us a call.
