When you are a new homeowner, it feels like you can do anything because you suddenly have a little more freedom with your home- especially if you have spent years unable to change your space because you were renting. While you can now swap out cabinetry and paint all the walls a different color if you would like to, there are still some things that you should not do as a new homeowner, including some plumbing services! Here are a few plumbing services that should always be completed by professional plumbers.

  • Installation of a water heater. A new water heater means cozy warm showers and effective cleaning for your clothes and dishes! However, a new water installed improperly can quickly turn into a disaster no matter if you choose to go with a tankless water heater or a standard water heater. These things need to be hooked up to both gas and electricity and could lead to fatal results if a mistake is made. Better to leave this one to the pros!
  • Re-routing or underground plumbing. Sometimes you might want to move some fixtures around in a bathroom or kitchen that will require digging to move the plumbing. These plumbing services are best left to the professional plumbers who have the experience to get jobs like these done right without collateral damage.
  • Anything with the sewer line. The sewer line is the main large pipe that takes all the wastewater from your home to the city sewer. If it is clogged, you can end up with loads of problems, expense and mess. If you have an issue with your sewer line, please let a professional handle it!

These are some examples of plumbing services that should always be done by professional plumbers, but there are certainly others. Please do your research before putting on your tool belt and save time and money with a professional.
