Posted in Plumbing on 28th February 2018

Homeowners don’t like plumbing problems, because it is inconvenient and it can be expensive, too. That’s why many homeowners opt for a DIY solution when the toilet is clogged or when the water heater is broken. Everyone likes to save a bit of money! However, if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can actually end up spending a lot more money. Professional plumbers are qualified and experienced, which means that they know what they’re doing. Instead of seeing the surface problem, they understand the physics and the intricacies that can help them avoid bigger issues.

There are many good reasons why it’s best to hire a plumber. Let’s look at the top 5:

1. Hiring a plumber saves time.

Professional plumbers spend their days repairing plumbing issues. In fact, they undergo years of rigorous training in order to be licensed. That means that they have plenty of experience. They don’t need to Google how to fix a clogged drain. They can fix complex issues in a fraction of the time it would take you to find an obscure “how to” article online.

2. Hiring a plumber means you don’t have to buy tools.

Plumbers use specialized tools, which most people don’t have in the shed. That means that you would have to buy these tools and plumbing materials, or you could just hire a plumber who already owns it.

3.  Hiring a plumber helps prevent flooding.

If something goes wrong during your DIY plumbing, it might cause flooding. In fact, Anta Plumbing is called to homes almost on a weekly basis to repair DIY-plumbing gone wrong. Flooding a home is not only a wet mess, but it often damages floors and carpets, as well as precious and sentimental belongings. Don’t risk that!

4.  Hiring a plumber is convenient.

If you’re going to try fix your broken, leaky toilet on your own, you must be prepared for some inconvenience. For instance, the bathroom might not be usable for a few days. If your sump pump switches off when you are relying on it, it could result in basement flooding. Save yourself the inconvenience and call a professional plumber who can have it fixed in a matter of hours.

5.  Hiring a plumber can save lives.

A plumbing system is surprisingly intricate. There are many underground pipes that supply water and divert grey water or black water away from your home. It is easy for an untrained person to be confused. If you accidentally break a water supply line that runs near an overflowing drain, you could contaminate your potable water supply. Septic tanks and sewer lines contain raw sewage, which is toxic. As such, it is important to speak to a professional plumber wiht experience in professional septic tank excavation to repair your septic tank.

As you can see, there are many reasons to call a professional plumber instead of attempting to repair your plumbing issues on your own. When you need professional help, Anta Plumbing is only a phone call away

high-pressure-pipe-leakingThe plumbing in even a small family home is complex, consisting of extensive piping made of different materials, a water main, a sewer line, numerous fixtures and appliances, valves, and more. Plenty can go wrong with plumbing, and it’s only the skill of modern plumbing installers that makes plumbing problems only occasional issues. Drain clogs and leaky faucets are among the most common repair issues that you will encounter with your household’s plumbing, and these are troubles you can easily have fixed by calling a plumber to schedule repairs at your earliest convenience.

There are other plumbing problems that require fast action—the types of plumbing malfunctions that can lead to massive water waste, extensive water damage, or a ruined appliance. These emergencies can’t wait for convenience to arrange. When they strike, you must call a licensed, professional plumber right away. Below are some these issues that require moving fast to have emergency plumbing repairs done.

Overflowing toilet

This plumbing trouble is one that’s most likely to cause panic when it starts. Fortunately, you can create a stopgap measure to prevent further flooding in the bathroom by shutting off the valve on the feed line behind the tank. If the toilet is an older type without this valve, open up the tank and rig up the chain to shut off water flow. (We also recommend installing a new toilet if your current one is this old.) Call for plumbers to have the problem fixed right away, since broken toilets are huge problems for a household and there’s the potential for water damage and bacterial contamination.

Burst pipes

You probably think of bursting pipes as something that only occurs in cold climates when the pipes freeze, and therefore they aren’t an issue in Florida. But we can suffer from burst pipes as well. Corrosion weakening old pipe material can lead to this, but extreme heat can heighten pressure in pipes leading to later cracks. If you have a burst pipe sending out water, shut off the water main to your home. (Make sure you know where this is.) You’ll be without water in the rest of the house, but that’s why you’ll want to already have made a call to a professional plumber.

Water spots on the ceiling

Never ignore this! And don’t wait to “get around” to having it repaired. Rusty reddish stains on ceiling material means a leaking pipe is allowing water to eat through building material. If the discoloration is underneath one of the bathrooms in the house, there is a serious danger of structural collapse and one of the major fixtures in the bathroom falling through. It takes plumbers with leak detection skills to reach the leaking area and have it fixed.

These are all problems that can’t wait for repairs. That’s why you need 24-hour plumbing in Winter Springs, FL from a contractor with the skill and experience to get the fixes done fast and right. Taking care of your plumbing issues, whether a scheduled installation/maintenance service or one of these emergencies striking late at night, is what we’re here to do!
