Replacing Your Old Plumbing
Plumbing is actually the skeleton of your home. It gives you such wonderful things like: water for your flush toilet, water to drink, hot water to bathe, wash clothes or dishes; heat your home, water your garden, etc. Why wouldn’t you want the strongest, most reliable pipes and plumbing throughout your house? A plumber has the education and experience to install new plumbing, fixtures and other items properly so they are safe and reliable. Cities & municipalities require permits for new plumbing & a licensed professional must be the one pulling them. Installing new plumbing really isn’t a DIY project, unless you’re a licensed plumber!
Installing a New Gas Line
You are literally playing with fire if a gas line is not installed properly. A small nick that could cause a leak can send dangerous fumes into your home, making you and your family sick, not to mention the danger of explosion if the gas comes into contact with any kind of flame. It’s heavier than air & hangs around longer. This includes pilot lights, small sparks from electrical switches; even lighting a cigarette or candle. A licensed plumber knows how to properly install the correct size of gas piping for your home.
Seems like this might be something easy to do, but think again. Your clean water lines may need to be moved and quite possibly your sewer lines as well. Do you really want to get that involved? A licensed professional plumber knows exactly what is needed and required to get your bathroom working the way you want. He’s seen it all and can guide you in choices that will work best to give you the comfort, safety and look you desire. (You might be able to help).
Septic or No?
If you are not connected to a municipal sewer system, you probably have a septic tank. You should be aware that it takes special care to keep it healthy. Specifically this means NOT putting certain things in the drain; also scheduling periodic cleaning and draining. If the septic system is old, you might consider of replacing it. It is a messy and stinky job and there are a lot of moving parts. If not installed correctly, you could be looking at some very expensive repairs. You should definitely call a licensed plumber for the installation.
