It might surprise you how often a plumber gets called for issues that the homeowner could have resolved on their own. If you have a helpful, honest plumber, they’ll listen to your situation and will advise you if you really do not need them. The reality is that they have a limited number of hours each day in which to perform plumbing services, so it makes sense that they wouldn’t want to spend the time to deal with easily resolved issues. Here are a few issues where your plumber will most likely let you know you don’t need them.
- Moisture around toilet tank- It is normal to think that any moisture accumulating on the floor by a toilet is being caused by a leak. Sometimes, it isn’t though. If the air is really humid, you can end up with condensation on the tank that drips onto the floor. If for some reason you cannot get humidity under control, a plumber can help you by installing an anti-sweat valve.
- Clogged toilets- Invest in a quality plunger and you can avoid needing to call a plumber much of the time.
- Handle doesn’t flush toilet- If you press on the handle and it doesn’t work, it is usually just that the chain has become detached and needs to be put back on to whichever end it has come loose from.
- Jammed garbage disposal- Before you call a plumber, look for the reset button and press it. If that doesn’t do the trick, use the wrench that came with the disposal to see if you can get it loosened. If those two tricks fail, then call the plumber.
