Should Your Plumbing Dad Take Care of It, or An Expert?


Father’s Day is a great time to really observe and be thankful for everything dad’s done for you and your entire family. Acting as chauffeur to all of your activities and events, cheering you on, being there to support you when you needed it the most; these are just a few ways dad’s been there for you throughout your life.

Nothing can replace all the time and effort dad put into helping you throughout your time growing up. Aside from everything dad has done for you, your dad probably took care of a lot of household odds and ends regularly.

While dad was probably excellent at handling a lot of projects himself, even the most expert of DIY dads can’t handle every job by themselves. Tasks in plumbing dad should probably leave along, for instance. Why? Read on below:

  • Overflowing water.
  • Broken water mains.
  • Sewer damage.

Don’t Use the Duct Tape to Fix Your Water Leak

  • A leaky pipe can lead to mold growth, which can sometimes be hazardous to your health.
  • Both big and small leaks can cause property damage if they aren’t attended to and corrected properly.

So, if you see or hear a leak, call in an experienced professional as quickly as you can to resolve the issue in the right way.

No Experience, No Snake Draining

There are a lot of problems that can happen with a bad snake draining job; don’t let yourself be a victim to any of the following problems:

  • Usage of a snake, especially a motorized one, can result in injury.
  • Damaging of the porcelain of the toilet or sink can happen when the snake is used incorrectly; this can cause rapid deterioration of the fixture and ruin the cosmetic appeal.
  • Failure of your home’s entire plumbing system is at stake with a bad snake job.

Sometimes, there are just certain jobs best left to the scope of experts, though. This Father’s Day, thank dad for all the amazing work he does and has done, and then call your plumbing expert for that toilet installation. Happy Father’s Day, dads!
