Plumbing can often be split into two categories–the plumbing work you can do yourself, and the plumbing work that should always be done by a professional. Plunging your sink, for instance, can usually be done by a homeowner as long as it’s done correctly. But plunging might not do enough for a clogged drain and you might require a professional plumber to step in.
Similarly, repiping is a plumbing service in Shrewsbury that can be complicated and almost always requires professional support. Trying to figure out what kind of plumbing material to install, how to install it correctly, and how to avoid disasters in the future is way too much for a homeowner to learn in such a short time. Not to mention the fact that equipment to perform this kind of work can be expensive and just downright inaccessible to regular people.
So, let’s talk about some of the best plumbing services we can help with right now. Then you can feel more comfortable deciding what plumbing work can be DIY, and what requires a pro.
Drain cleaning can be done in multiple different ways. If you’ve got a drain clog, for instance, then we’d recommend homeowners try to plunge or snake their drain themselves. But this might not be enough. Residential plumbing equipment can only be so good at fixing a drain clog, and at that point you might need professional help.
Our team provides drain cleaning services that are much more powerful and effective than simple plunging. For instance, we can provide you with hydro jetting, which is when we use a high-powered water nozzle to force any clogging material out of your drain.
If you’ve got an old set of leaky pipes, then you might think removing and replacing them is simple. But it’s really not.
Pipe replacements can be complicated. If you install PVC pipes to replace your old steel pipes, for instance, they might start to melt because PVC can’t handle boiling or hot water. Likewise, paying for the wrong size or material of piping can be a huge waste and something that a professional isn’t likely to do. Don’t cut corners, just call our team to get this done quickly and reliably.
Are you adding onto your house? Or perhaps your plumbing system is in dire need of an upgrade? Then this is likely a service you should leave to the pros.
Plumbing additions need to be done very carefully due to many different reasons. For instance, if you’re finishing your basement or adding a new section to your home, any plumbing appliances must be adequately connected to the main water line. And, if your main water line is old and outdated, it might not have the capability of providing enough water to all of these appliances at the same time. This is where we see problems with water pressure and poor functionality from plumbing appliances set up by an amateur.
Do yourself a favor and start with a licensed plumber from the get-go. A certified master plumber will be able to make the upgrades you need quickly and effectively, without unintended side effects at the end.
