Sorry, But Online Tutorials Don’t Make You a Plumber

plumbing-leakSometimes you’re in a bit of a plumbing pinch and you just want a quick solution. We’ve all been there. The problem is that there really isn’t a “quick” fix to your plumbing problems—especially not one that you can DIY. If you’re struggling with the plumbing system in your home, the best thing you can do is call a professional plumber. If you’re really in a bind then we offer 24/ 7 emergency service calls.

The last thing you want to do is try to fix your plumbing system on your own and then realize that you’ve just made the situation much worse. If you’re looking for quality plumbing in Normal, IL that won’t break the bank then we’re the team for you. We pride ourselves on our responsible service.   

Here’s Why You Need a Professional

The internet can teach you just about anything, but you should always rely on a professional plumber when it comes to something as complex as your plumbing system. There are so many intricate parts of your plumbing system that you need a trained, educated professional to service. Here’s why you need a professional:

Their Tools

The difference between you and a professional plumber is that a professional plumber has all the necessary equipment to help you. Here at Pipeworks, we offer a service called “hydro jetting” that allows us to get the maximum amount of pipe and drain cleaning done with a minimal amount of manipulation to your pipe. If you try to DIY your plumbing services without the right tools or in the wrong manner you can end up severely damaging your pipe. It’s always better to call on a professional.

Their Extensive Training and Licenses

Our technicians are trained, licensed, and experienced. They’ll always come with the right background knowledge to get your home in top shape. Your plumbing system is very complex. The way that you need to treat your kitchen plumbing is actually a lot different than your bathroom plumbing. Additionally, different fixtures call for different measures. Don’t damage your home trying to perform these tasks on your own.

They Offer Long Term Solutions

The best thing about hiring a professional plumber is that they’re accurate. Our technicians know what they’re looking for in your home and how to handle these problems once they arise. The problem with plumbing is that even the problems that present themselves run much deeper than they appear on the surface. If you don’t deal with the problems right away then they can get worse and cause a domino effect of plumbing issues. If you try to fix these problems on your own it’s likely that you’ll just fix one of these issues instead of addressing the problem overall. A professional plumber will get the job done once and for all.

We know that tutorials that you find online make big promises to make you an expert in under 15 minutes, but trust us, you need a professional. When you have plumbing problems make sure you contact our team at Pipeworks Inc. to schedule an appointment.
