Advantages of Hiring a Professional Plumber over DIY Plumbing

Oct 19, 2023

Property owners often face various plumbing issues like blocked sink drains, leaks or burst pipes, or hot water issues. The urge to solve these issues by yourself might be strong, but before getting yourself into a bigger problem, consider hiring a professional plumber instead.


While DIY projects can be enjoyable and satisfying, plumbing is a complex system that requires specialised expertise and skills. There are also certain locations in Australia, New South Wales being one of them, that only allow those with valid licences to conduct plumbing works, repairs, and maintenance. Attempting to solve your plumbing issues on your own may result in legal and financial penalties so it is an absolute must to check your local plumbing laws and consult your professional plumbing contractor first.

Why Hiring a Professional Plumber is the Best Choice

Since online video tutorials and forums are popular nowadays when it comes to DIY projects, it’s easy to feel like an expert after watching a few DIY plumbing videos. However, plumbing requires extensive expertise and skill to efficiently solve the current and potential plumbing complications that can arise.


Here are some of the key advantages of entrusting your plumbing needs to a professional rather than attempting to do it yourself:


Experience and Expertise

Certified plumbers have invested significant time and effort to be able to provide efficient and effective solutions. They possess extensive expertise and experience in various plumbing techniques and tools which help them identify and put an end to your plumbing nightmares efficiently. They can also help diagnose and solve possible issues that may arise to avoid future plumbing issues.


Proper Equipment and Tools

Plumbing installation, repair, and maintenance all require different corresponding tools and equipment for accurate diagnosis and solution. Professional plumbers always come prepared and equipped with industrial-grade tool kits and specialised equipment to address various plumbing problems. This will ensure that every job will be done correctly and in a timely manner.


Time and Cost Savings

Property owners may seem to find DIY as a cost-effective alternative for their plumbing problems. However, opting for DIY could lead to bigger plumbing damage and additional repair cost. Moreover, DIY projects often take longer to complete. With the help of a professional plumber, plumbing issues could be swiftly identified and resolved which in turn could save you both money and time.


Guarantees and Warranties

Trustworthy and professional plumbers often offer warranties for their services. If an issue arises after their repair, professional plumbers will return to fix it without any additional charges. This shows that professional plumbers are dedicated and committed to delivering only the best quality services.


Compliance with Building Codes and Local Regulations

Plumbing projects must always adhere to specific plumbing codes and local regulations to ensure safety, and proper functioning, and to avoid legal and financial penalties. Certified plumbers are well-versed in these codes and local regulations and ensure that your plumbing system meets all the requirements.


Troubleshooting Complex Problems

Plumbing problems may sometimes appear as a simple issue on the surface but could be a bigger problem underneath. A certified plumber knows very well how to identify what causes these plumbing problems and check for other underlying potential issues to ensure that they will provide comprehensive solutions for all the issues. Trying to resolve these issues without the proper knowledge could only lead to a serious and costly one.


Emergency Response

Emergencies can also arise in your plumbing system and can happen at any time. Most reputable plumbing contractors offer 24/7 emergency plumbing services to ensure that your plumbing problems will be addressed promptly which will help avoid potential and bigger disasters.

Final Thoughts

While planning a DIY solution for your plumbing problem might sound satisfying, solving your own plumbing problem may not work for you. A misstep in your plumbing solution may lead to costly consequences. So before you reach for your toolbox and do your own plumbing DIY, check your local plumbing regulations and consult your trusted plumbing contractor first to ensure a smooth and trouble-free plumbing solution for your property!
