Dangers of DIY Plumbing Repair

Schedule Online

It pays to consult an experienced plumber in Scottsdale, AZ, and nearby areas from a trusted local plumbing company like Zippity Split Plumbing. After all, there are many things that can go wrong if you attempt to tackle plumbing repairs yourself. Fortunately, we provide non-urgent and emergency plumbing assistance during convenient hours. Let us discuss some of the dangers of do-it-yourself plumbing repair that you may not be aware of.

How DIY Can Lead to Worse Issues

Not turning to an experienced plumber and attempting DIY plumbing repairs can create entirely new problems. It’s also surprisingly easy to overlook important steps, like turning off the water in the right location. Even if you do know where to shut off the water, you may end up unintentionally breaking a rusty or old valve when attempting to loosen it with a wrench. Relatively minor repairs you may be attempting to handle yourself could also turn into full-blown emergency plumbing situations because of:

  • Flooding if a valve or pipe completely breaks
  • Busted or broken pipes affected by improper connections or soldering
  • Repairs that are ineffective because of plumbing parts that are too big or small

DIY plumbing efforts that go awry can also result in costly repairs when you do call on professionals to get everything fixed. If you take advantage of our fast and efficient plumbing services first, however, we’ll work hard to resolve the issue promptly and correctly.

Why Choose a Plumber

By choosing a plumber when your home or business pipes, fixtures, drains, or water heater demands attention, you’ll be able to avoid the potential pitfalls of DIY plumbing repairs. Contacting an experienced plumber also means a skilled technician will arrive with the tools necessary to detect suspected slab leaks, safely inspect your pipes to pinpoint the source of a clog, or make repairs to your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room fixtures. Ultimately, this means you can breathe easier and know that the problem will be properly diagnosed and resolved.
