In the face of broken fixtures and clogged pipes, trying to fix plumbing problems on your own can be tempting. However, do-it-yourself (DIY) plumbing repairs can often cause more harm than good. Read on to learn why we at Perry Plumbing & Pipelining do not recommend this approach.

Inadequate Knowledge and Expertise

If you are not properly trained in the latest techniques and safety protocols, your attempted repair could lead to an emergency plumbing situation – causing more damage to your home and your wallet. Furthermore, even when a DIYer has some level of expertise, they often lack the necessary tools, parts, and materials to do the job correctly.

High Risk of Injury

Plumbing systems can be incredibly complicated, and even seemingly simple repairs can be dangerous when performed by inexperienced hands. A professional plumber in San Diego, CA is familiar with the signs and symptoms of what can often go wrong, allowing them to take the appropriate steps to mitigate potential risks.

Voiding of Manufacturer Warranties

Manufacturers require that only certified professionals handle the installation or repair of their products to ensure their proper functioning. If you attempt to repair or install equipment, you may end up voiding the warranty, which could lead to more significant expenses in the long run.
