Calling the Plumbers For Assistance VS Doing It Myself

When you are facing a plumbing crisis in your family home, do you call in plumbers from Port Macquarie, or do you try to fix the problem yourself? There are several reasons why it might be better to call in Richardson Plumbing and Gas Services rather than risk making mistakes and causing a more severe problem. 

Is this a DIY fix?

There are some plumbing tasks which are simply not suitable for DIY, and you will recognise these when they happen. For example, if you have a burst water main outside your home, or a flood inside the property, you would be wise to take safety measures, and then call in a team of plumbers. You may also be faced with plumbing jobs that you do not have equipment for, in which case calling in a plumber is the only sensible course of action. 

Quick fixes you might try

Although Richardson Plumbing and Gas Services would always recommend that you call us out whenever anything goes wrong with your plumbing, there are a few things that you might try, including fixing toilet's that keep running, unclogging drains and fixing bad smells coming from your sinks. These are all relatively simple and can be handled by an amateur. 

Problems with your pipes

Some of the problems which might require assistance from the experts relate to frozen or broken pipes. During the winter, frozen pipes can easily become a problem, and there may be more severe damage caused to pipework by wintry weather freezing the pipes. 

Parts requiring replacement

If you can clearly see that the part in question is beyond repair, then you need to call in Richardson Plumbing and Gas Services to obtain a new part. Unless it is something extremely easy to obtain, like a tap, you will almost certainly need to call in our plumbing team to help you. 

Water heater in trouble

If you are having trouble with your water heater, then you may need help in getting assistance for it. This is true even of basic problems because you need a plumber that is experienced in handling gas systems to ensure that everything is safe and there are no dangerous leaks.
