Plumbers: Different Types Of Services They Can Offer


Contrary to popular beliefs, plumbers are professionally trained to handle more plumbing matters than just repairing leaks and clogged drains. In most cases, consumers only rely on their services for these issues. As a result, many people are unaware of the different types of services a plumber can offer.

Here four additional services that a plumber can provide.

1. Consulting On Plumbing Matters

When you want to install plumbing in your new house or replace the old plumbing system, only a plumber can provide credible and useful advice on how to go about it. Plumbers are well trained in matters of planning, designing, installing, and repairing plumbing systems. Additionally, they are well versed in different types of plumbing materials such as pipes and faucets. Thus they can advise you on the best materials to buy to serve you for a long time and still fit within your budget.

2. Water Heater and Garbage Disposal Installation

Before purchasing a water heater, it is always advisable to have a plumber assess the type of water heater unit you should buy based on your hot water needs. For instance, if the water heater is expected to serve a large household with multiple bedrooms, it is up to a plumber to calculate a water heater's performance requirement and advise you on the best unit that meets the requirements. Additionally, after purchasing the recommended water heater, the plumber will install it and calibrate it to operate at optimum efficiency.

Likewise, when installing a garbage disposal unit, you should have a plumber advise you on the best disposal unit to buy. They can then install and configure the unit inside your home.

3. Plumbing Maintenance

The main reason plumbing issues occur is due to neglected plumbing systems. Thus, it is advisable to have a plumber conduct regular maintenance checks on your plumbing to ensure there are no potential issues that could occur. Plumbers are trained to detect potential plumbing issues and fix them before they become serious issues that require repairs. Additionally, during the maintenance checks, a plumber can advise a homeowner on how to use their plumbing better to avoid future repairs.

4. Renovations

When you want to sell your house or get it appraised, it is always advisable to conduct renovations. Renovations that involve the bathroom, toilet, and kitchen are an area of specialty for plumbers. Whether you want to install new sinks, showerheads, faucets, or toilet bowls, a plumber can advise you on the best ones to buy and then install them for you.
