When it comes to plumbing jobs, it pays to do it right the first time!
I had a couple of kitchen drain calls the other day. Each had problems caused by previous poor plumbing work done.
In one case, a laundry line drained into a sump pit and was pumped into the kitchen drain line under the house. It was misconnected to the house plumbing system, causing the water to overflow into the kitchen sink, and then the water in the kitchen drain trap was siphoned out. With no water in the drain trap and, therefore, nothing to trap the sewer gases in the sewer, the house is filled with a strong sewer odor. This may seem like a simple plumbing job, but you want to handle it correctly.
The Second Plumbing Job
A laundry sink is improperly hooked into another drain line and undersized on the second plumbing job. The homeowner complains of water backing into the laundry sink when the washing machine drains.
In both cases, I could provide a temporary solution to the plumbing job by cleaning the drain with a snake. However, both will have problems again soon due to improper plumbing installation. I can fix the issues by installing the plumbing properly, but in either case, this is not an inexpensive project.
So, when it comes to a plumbing job…
Any plumber will tell you that one of the most important things you can do is to make sure you do a job right the first time. This is especially true when it comes to plumbing. A poorly Done plumbing job can result in a leaky faucet, a clogged drain, or even worse, a flooded basement. That’s why it’s so important to take your time and do the job right.
Of course, doing a plumbing job right the first time doesn’t mean you have to be a professional plumber. There are plenty of simple jobs that any homeowner can do if they take the time to learn how. For example, changing a washer in a faucet is a pretty easy repair that anyone can do. The same goes for clearing a clogged sink drain. But even if you’re not confident in your ability to do the job yourself, there’s no shame in calling in a professional plumber. After all, it’s better to pay someone to do the job right than to have to call them back to fix your mistakes.
Use a responsible, professional, and licensed plumber when doing a complex plumbing job or if you have no experience. The professionals at Mitch Clemmons plumbing assure you that even a simple plumbing job will be done correctly the first time.
I saw this quote, and it is so true:
