From time to time, maintenance issues arise in the home, especially when it involves plumbing. For most of these plumbing issues, a simple solution is evident and can be completed by the homeowner with minimal or moderate effort. But, do you know when to call a professional plumber versus trying to do it yourself? Hubb has some answers!


4 Plumbing Problems That Require a Professional

The toilet and the shower are backing up. This can be a main line problem. And a drain auger from the home store probably isn’t going to fix this problem. Get a professional.

Anything involving gas pipes. This isn’t the time to figure out that the guy on youtube had no idea what he was talking about. Get a professional.

Water heater replacement. There are a lot of variables that are involved in getting this job done right the first time. An experienced plumber knows how to make sure every single detail is taken care of. Flooding your basement or crawlspace is not worth the risk. Just get a professional.

Any other problems that require professional guidance. Don’t make DIY mistakes! Call Hubb instead!

Prevention is Best

Be careful allowing grease, hair or floss into your drains. A weekly practice of pouring boiling water into your drain can keep your drains clear. Keep up-to-date with the Hubb Plumbing Blog to get more tips on prevention and care. Or better yet, just follow Hubb Plumbing on Facebook!
