Trying to save money by fixing your home plumbing systems by yourself isn’t always the best idea. You may have the tools and some handyman knowledge when it comes to plumbing systems, but only certified plumbers can ensure a maintenance or installation job is done correctly with the right tools for the right job.
Unlicensed repairmen and handymen may be cheaper, but you get what you pay for as many don’t have the training, insurance or certifications that licensed plumbers possess.
Chances are no one can do the job efficiently the first time around like licensed plumbers can. DIYers and people who rely on unqualified handymen also don’t benefit from guarantees of work and in many cases don’t enjoy warranties afforded by professional installation.
Certified plumbers earn and achieve their certifications through reputable plumbing associations and/or state organizations with the power to bestow and revoke a plumber’s certification based on their experience and performance. Certified plumbers have been put to the test in their trade and proved they’re knowledgeable enough to know the nuances of modern and older plumbing.
Licensed plumbers are also well-versed in building permits, with many holding the necessary permits needed to operate and handle plumbing in both private and public property. They are also required to know pertinent state and city codes and requirements in order to apply their trade. Repairs and maintenance conducted by licensed plumbers also prevent the warranties on your systems and appliances from being voided.
What Certified Plumbers Can Do for You
Licensed plumbers can handle a myriad of common and uncommon plumbing situations, including:1
- – Performing yearly maintenance and upkeep on your water heater, such as flushing mineral and sediment buildup to improve your heater’s operating efficiency.
- – Pull the correct permit in order to legally change out your water heater and have the finished work examined and signed-off by a city inspector.
- – Repairing topical water heater vents that have been blown loose by intense storms.
Regardless of the plumbing issue, certified plumbers are sufficiently trained to handle all sorts of plumbing fixtures such as:
- – Gas lines and sewer lines
- – Toilets and shower drains
- – Kitchen sinks, faucets and garbage disposals
- – Leaking, burst and frozen pipes
