Professional Plumbing: What’s the Difference?

When confronted with a plumbing problem, you’re given three options. The first option is to ignore the issue and keep trying to go on with your normal life, which never really works out well. The second option is to call your local handyman or neighborhood amateur plumber to see if they’ll repair it on the cheap. The third option is to call a licensed, professional plumber with competitive pricing from a plumbing company. Which option do you choose?

Well, let’s scratch the first option out first. Neglecting your plumbing is never a good idea, regardless of what’s wrong. Here, we’d like to talk about why contacting a professional to take care of your plumbing in Lloydminster is always a better idea than your local handyman.

Don’t believe us? Let us get into detail about it below and we promise you’ll think differently.

Don’t Settle for Subpar Service

When we talk about professional service vs. amateur service, we’re really talking about the quality of the job that gets performed. Licensed and well-trained plumbers are more statistically likely to leave you off with a better plumbing system than an amateur handyman or local plumber that performs the job for cheap. If you’re looking to keep things running smoothly for a longer time, then it’s time to invest in professional plumbing.

The Right Tools for the Job

When you’re dealing with a clogged drain, you want someone to come and clear it out when you pay for professional service, right?

An amateur might only have one or two tools at their disposal. They might try plunging or snaking your sink, only to find that it’s not working. Their next step is usually to start ripping pipes apart to locate the clog, and that’s a much more expensive solution that you don’t want an amateur performing.

A professional plumber has many different tools at their disposal to clear drain clogs and fix your pipes. They can locate the clog with video pipe inspection, use a variety of different sized plungers, snakes, and tools to help remove the clog. Eventually, if that doesn’t work, pressurized water in a hydro jet can clear away your clog if it needs a more powerful solution. Pros are just better at getting the job done right!

Peace of Mind

It feels so much better to have an experienced plumber on the job. The extra cost is well-worth the peace of mind you get when you know that the professional who is working on your plumbing system has decades of experience under their belt. There are no plumbing problems that our plumbers haven’t seen, so can be comfortable knowing you’re in good hands.

Expert Advice

There’s an old proverb that we think of when it comes to professional service. “Experience is the comb that nature gives us when we’re bald.” Our plumbers might not be as charismatic as a handyman, and they might not sell you on the newest and coolest piece of technology. But what they do have is decades of experience that can be worth it’s weight in gold. Experience means they can offer you sound advice about your plumbing system that will save you money and keep you comfortable for years to come.
