Home Plumbing: DIY or Call a Plumber?

Whenever a plumbing problem arises, all homeowners face the same question: is this a job I can handle on my own, or should I call a plumber? Some plumbing problems are straightforward enough to be handled on a DIY basis. For instance, tasks like fixing a clogged toilet or using a monthly drain maintenance treatment can easily be performed without calling a professional. However, other jobs definitely require the pro treatment. It’s never a good idea for a novice to try to repair a garbage disposal, for example, and all services relating to hot water heaters require the experience of a qualified plumber. If you’re in doubt about when to call your plumber, consult this infographic. Please share this information with your family and friends so they too can learn what to tackle alone and when to seek help.
