Attempting a DIY Plumbing Repair? Make Sure You Read This First!

January 29, 2024

Some DIY projects are a fun, cost-effective way to upgrade your home. However, there are some things that should always be left to the pros. 

Unlike building a new bookshelf, attempting your own plumbing repairs is ill-advised. Avoid hazardous mistakes and wasted dollars by skipping these common DIY plumbing projects!

DIY Sewer Line Repairs

If your sewer line is clogged, it can be tempting to try to fix the problem yourself to get it squared away as soon as possible. 

We caution against this because of how important the main sewer line is to your whole plumbing system. Without proper training and equipment, you risk creating extensive damage to your sewer system – so leave it to ProFlo! We can be there the same day to minimize the inconvenience of a plumbing emergency.

Installing Your New Water Heater

Installing your own water heater isn’t likely to save you money in the long run – and it isn’t safe, either. 

Your local plumber has specialized education to ensure they meet all safety codes and regulations while working with gas and electrical connections. As a homeowner without this training, you’re at high risk of creating an accidental hazard (like an electrical malfunction).

Doing Your Own Pipe Work

Fixing a pipe in your home might seem like a simple undertaking, but your plumbing system is far more complicated than it might seem. A skilled plumber can take care of a compromised pipe in a fraction of the time of the average person, taking care to prevent structural damage and leaks in the process.

Save yourself the energy; we’ll get it taken care of in less time than it would take you to run to the home improvement store!

Repairing Your Septic System

Homeowners with septic systems typically live in more rural areas, and being far off the grid might mean you’re farther away from a plumber. That said, you should never attempt to repair it yourself.

Working on a septic system requires extensive knowledge of how it works, plus professional equipment. The ProFlo team has the tools and expertise to get your system back up and running without causing environmental hazards, groundwater contamination, or health risks.
