Being a plumber can be a difficult job. With us receiving so many calls and requests for us to head out to jobs that in reality don’t require a plumber. While we are happy to come out and help you no matter what the issue is, sometimes it will be cheaper for you to fix these issues yourself, as well as allowing us time to concentrate on the jobs that really do need us. So, what are 2 of the most common issues we are called out for that really don’t require a plumber?
1- Clogged Drain
We have a lot of calls come in for clogged or blocked drains. Where the water simply just isn’t draining away as effectively as you’d like. Now, this issue is normally a simple fix that will not require a plumber. All you need to do is use a plunger to remove the blockage or purchase a drain unblocker that will help to break down the blockage, making the water drain effectively once again.
2- Installing Toilets
Now, a lot of people seem to have trouble with installing new toilets. Removing and installing a new toilet is a fairly simple process. If you have brought a new toilet from a hardware store, it will have likely come with instructions on how to remove and install your new toilet. By following these instructions you will see you do not need to hire a plumber for this job as it is very simple to complete.
While these two issues are very easy for you to fix, we are still happy to head out of our way to come and help you with them. We are very understanding that some of you may not be capable to require help. So, do not let this put you off and do not hesitate to give us a call if you require assistance even with the simplest of plumbing issues.
