Plumbing Fixes You Shouldn’t Try Doing Yourself

Are you struggling with stubborn pipes, dysfunctional fixtures, or a failing water heater? While these kinds of problems are common for homeowners, they can be difficult to navigate without professional training and the proper equipment. At Rooter Hero Plumbing, our plumbers provide a wide selection of quality services, including leak detection, pipe repair, clog removals, and more for clients in surrounding California and Arizona area communities. We understand the importance of performing installations, replacements, and repairs successfully. There are countless DIY projects that handy homeowners can perform with very little risk. Unfortunately, there are many plumbing tasks that should be completed by those with the experience and tools to do the job right. Here is a list of the most complicated plumbing fixes that should never be tried by property owners.

Fixing Frequent Clogs

When homeowners try to fix their clogged drain lines, they generally turn to chemical drain cleaners from their local grocery or hardware store. While this seems like a cheap fix, it can lead to some very complicated and expensive plumbing problems down the road. Using these harsh, caustic chemicals again and again can warp, corrode and damage pipes and fixtures. Rented augers can also cause major damage to pipes, sinks, and toilets. When you hire a professional plumber for your clog removal, they will have the appropriate training and specialized equipment to ensure the task is performed safely and accurately.

Toilet Replacements

Replacing a toilet might seem simple enough in theory, yet there are a lot of steps to the process, and missing one of them can lead to water damage and premature replacement of your new investment. A plumber will know how to properly siphon the water, disconnect the water line, safely remove the existing toilet, replace wax seals and ensure that the new toilet is correctly installed and bolted down.

Detecting and Repairing Hidden Leaks

So, you’ve noticed that your water pressure is low, your water bills are rising, and there’s a strange smell coming from underneath your kitchen area. You suspect a leak, but attempting to locate and fix the pipe yourself could be a very big challenge. Finding the culprit with traditional means often involves tearing up flooring, walls, concrete, or landscaping features. Modern plumbers have access to specialized equipment that can bypass this invasive method and find your leaks fast. Using our high-definition cameras and moisture detection tools, we can pinpoint the exact source of your leak. Best of all, minor repair issues can also often be solved with trenchless pipelining services. So, save time and money by calling a plumber when you suspect that a hidden leak is somewhere in your pipes.

Water Heater Installations

Water heater systems are another complicated installation procedure that should always be performed by a professional. This is because the installation involves a combination of water, electricity, or gas. Mistakes made when replacing, installing, or repairing a water heater could lead to water damage, mold growth, property damage, hidden gas leaks, electrical fires, and electrocution. A trained plumber will know how to safely navigate the process.
