Indoor plumbing is one of the oldest inventions that everyone takes for granted every day. Over time, the technology has become innovative and today’s plumbing systems are far more advanced than the plumbing systems of the past, but with advancement comes more complicated systems and maintenance routines.

From all of the possible issues that can arise with plumbing problems, such as clogged drains, blocked kitchen sinks, slow draining bathtubs to leaking toilets and burst pipes, there are a number of things that you can do to avoid plumbing disasters in your home. You don’t want plumbing emergencies to inconvenience your life, leaving you without the use of hot water, working drains, flushing toilets and more.

No matter how skilled one is at maintenance in the home, there are things that only a professional certified plumber can accomplish. With their expert knowledge on plumbing systems, they can diagnosis ahead of time a potential problem and make recommendations to fix the issue. So instead of troubleshooting and messing around with your own pipes and systems, a professional will know exactly where to start looking and how to fix it. For your commercial business, or for you own home, when you hire a professional plumber, the job is done efficiently without wasting your time and money.

1. Plumbers know what they’re doing and have the right tools

A master plumber has extensive training, knowledge and practical experience.  From the installation of pipes to repairing leaks and other issues, a licensed plumber has the experience and skills to ensure the job is done right the first time with permanent results. Plumbers also have the proper tools and materials required for the job. This saves you hours running back and forth from the hardware store picking up parts and buying tools you’ll never use again.

Professional plumbers are licensed and certified, which means that any damages that could be caused by them will be handled at no extra charge. You will get your system fixed and running, regardless of the time it takes to correct the situation.

2. Plumbers can prevent problems ahead of time through inspection

An ounce of prevention is one of the best ways to avoid plumbing disasters. The best thing that you can do to avoid potential problems is to schedule a total plumbing inspection with a master plumber at least once a year. A plumbing inspection will look down your drains and sewer pipes using a camera that travels along the route. It will also include inspecting all plumbing outlets, fittings, and appliances. If there is a potential problem that needs to be addressed before a disaster strikes, a plumbing inspection can discover it early. If the problem is caught early on and relatively easy to correct, the cost will be lesser than dealing with a larger headache down the road.

3. Plumbers can prevent clogged pipes & drains

Most of the time, people don’t have their drains cleaned on a regular basis. In order to avoid plumbing disasters, you should have your pipe and drains cleaned on a regular basis in order to prevent clogs and sewage backflows. Reasons for hiring a professional plumber for pipes and drains include:

  • Reduce odours
  • Potential to increase the lifespan of your plumbing system
  • Reduce the risk of leakage
  • Eliminate drain clogs that accumulate over time
  • Prevent sewage backup
  • Avoid structural damage to your home
  • Remove blockage without the use of chemicals that harm the environment and your pipes overtime. Professional plumbers have the techniques and technology to clean plumbing installations safely without chemicals.
