Trying to save money with DIY plumbing repairs can lead to expensive and dangerous problems in the long run. Avoid these risks by hiring a licensed and experienced plumber.
When it comes to plumbing repairs, DIY might seem like a cost-effective option, but it can often cause more harm than good. Here are five reasons why you should avoid DIY plumbing and call the experts at Plumbaround instead:
Causing irreparable damage
Even a small mistake during a DIY repair can cause significant damage to your home. Water damage and mould growth can weaken the structure of your home and compromise its safety, while a gas leak can be hazardous to your health and safety.
Plumbing work can be dangerous, especially when dealing with gas lines, sewage, or hot water. Without proper training and equipment, you could put yourself and your family at risk of injury or illness.
DIY plumbing work that doesn’t meet local building codes and regulations can result in fines, penalties, or legal issues. Hiring a licensed plumber ensures that your plumbing work meets all local codes and regulations, preventing any potential issues down the line.
Attempting to do plumbing work yourself can result in costly mistakes that end up costing you more money in the long run. A professional plumber will have the skills and expertise to do the job right the first time, saving you time and money.
Lack of proper tools
Plumbing work requires specialized tools and equipment that most homeowners don’t have access to. A professional plumber will have access to the necessary tools and equipment, ensuring that any plumbing issues are diagnosed and resolved correctly.
Don’t risk damage to your home or your safety – contact Plumbaround! Our licensed and experienced plumbers will ensure that your plumbing system is functioning properly and that any issues or repairs are addressed quickly and efficiently.
The best plumbers will be reliable, have good customer service and be available for you in emergency situations, in addition to planned maintenance. By choosing the best commercial plumbers, you are ensuring that they will make all repairs correctly the first time and deliver results you can rely on.
Licensed and Insured – Firstly, confirm that your plumber is licensed and insured (especially within your state). This protects your properties from potential damage and legal consequences.
Experience – Ensure that the commercial plumber has experience which ideally should include working on the type of building(s) that you manage. Plus, working with facilities managers, real estate agents or body corporate managers (or others in similar roles). Experience allows for more efficient and better-quality work.
Old or new plumbing systems? – Has the plumber experience with both old and new plumbing systems? This is particularly important for buildings with older systems. Have they got the tools and skills needed to work on it?
Qualifications – Experience and qualifications don’t always go hand-in-hand, however, sometimes you can find one without the other. Confirm that your chosen plumber is qualified to work on all of the systems they will maintain. Ensure they have passed any necessary tests and training to receive the relevant certification.
Warranty – Pay attention to whether your chosen plumbing company offers a warranty of some sort. Many will offer guarantees on their services for a set amount of time.
Services Offered – Ideally, it’s best to use a single commercial plumbing provider that offers all of the services you need. You do not want to have to work with several companies, and by working with just a single company, you save yourself time and hassle. You may also get financial savings this way.
Communication and Customer Service – The best commercial plumbers will be available 24/7 for emergencies and be at least professional, if not friendly, on the phone.
Recommendations and References – It’s important to pay attention to reviews from others especially for those who’ve used the plumber for similar services to your business.
Reputation – Pay attention to the plumber’s overall reputation. Look for online reviews even if you already have a glowing recommendation. You want to find consistency in the reviews. An occasional issue is not a concern, as long as the plumber quickly resolves it.

With the Hydro Jet Rodder on board, Plumbaround can clear even the toughest blocked drains. Whilst the electric eel is a great machine to clear lines, the Jet Rodder blasts all sorts of debris free from blocked sewer and stormwater lines.
Hydro Jetting cleans drains once cleared of a blockage with a high pressure water jet at up to 35,000kpa. The jet rodder achieves this by feeding a self propelled hose with a specifically designed nozzle up the drain.
There are many places an electric eel cannot go where a jetter hose travels with ease and does the job more effectively and efficiently. We have a variety of nozzles for use and with the ability to pull through toilet pans and tight PVC gully traps.
Hydro-jetting will clear storm water lines blocked by silt, sludge and sediment build up. The hydro-jet method penetrates the dirt and flushes the drain in one action, leaving the drain clean and free flowing.
Call the Plumbaround team today on 3038-1038 to enquire about the Hydro Jet Rodder.
