Wasting water in your home could cost you hundreds

3,000 – 8,000 of water is wasted each year due to one drip per second. Normally your faucet and or toilet can just be repaired by your local plumber instead of installing a new plumbing fixture. If not familiar with plumbing their are several parts inside the faucet that stops it from dripping. Same goes for toilets. Each and every faucet has different parts but all the parts act and do the same. Toilets as well have several internal parts that stop the toilet from running and also make sure enough water is flushed per use.

Plumbers were only created due to the difficulty of installing and repairing fixtures. If plumbing were easy, we’d all do it. Having the right skill, tools and knowledge is very important when you try and tackle any project. But with plumbing if you don’t have the proper tools you’ll end up, soaked.

Before the plumber arrives the only step you can try doing is turning off the water.

Enjoy the fact that plumbers are around and that were just a phone call away.

How to go about hiring a plumber

It is true that you must be careful when hiring a plumbing but don’t you have to also be careful when your hiring any worker that comes open hands into your home. Hiring an electrician and or Hvac company is just as important. Even though you say a plumber can “dictate whether your plumbing problem gets fixed or destroys your home” that isn’t always the case. I do agree that hiring an experienced plumber is the only way to go, but they have problems as well. I own a plumbing company and everyone that calls in thinks we work magic and everything will be fixed without problems. Customers think when they have a shower leak or any plumbing issue it can be handled without destroying the sheet rock or sometimes taking down some tile. The fact is every job is different and it depends which builders were smart enough to install access panels and opening that would in fact come in handy for plumbers. When going to hire a plumber, electrician, heating guy, painter, or even a roofer it doesn’t matter if they have been a master of their field for thirty years problems DO happen. People always seem to crack down when hiring a plumber, well it’s funny cause I always crack down when hiring an electrician or heating guy. I see all sorts of problems everyday and we handle them day in and day out. Thanks for writing a great article.
