Plumbing is often seen as a great DIY project, especially with all the videos you can find online to help walk you through the process. But it doesn’t take much for a quick installation project to turn into a full-fledged disaster. Without the knowledge and expertise, mistakes can easily happen, costing you much more than you bargained for. So before you decide to install your own drain, check out these reasons why you should consider calling a professional instead.
Don’t Have The Proper Tools
It is very unlikely that you have the right tools on hand to install your own drain. Even with the basics on hand, without a good range of tools and equipment, you could end up doing more damage than good. A professional plumber will have all the tools and equipment necessary to get your drain installed properly the first time.
Potential To Cause More Damage
Odds are you’re not a plumbing or drainage expert. If you go ahead and start installing your own drain without any adequate training, you could end up damaging your entire drainage system. A professional will be able to determine exactly what you need and install it much faster than you would on your own. This is because they have the experience and training required to get the job done right, no matter how complex it may be.
Installation Can Be Dangerous
Installing a drain can be dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. If you don’t have the right tools to reach the right spots you could injure yourself. And if you don’t have the right parts, you could potentially cause flooding throughout your entire home, causing extensive damage.
Mistakes Are Costly
Making mistakes when it comes to your plumbing system can be much costlier than the overall cost of hiring a professional. Avoid paying more out of pocket to have your mistakes fixed down the road and spend a little more now knowing it is done right.
