leaking pipeFor the next few weeks, we are going to be doing a short series of blog posts that deal with the types of household plumbing problems that are best left to a professional plumber. Today, we’ll look at fixing pipes that have cracked or burst.

Most people feel that they can handle just about any plumbing repair. They underestimate the complexity behind that which appears to be quite simple. After all, how hard can it be to replace a section of pipe?

Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as you think, especially if you haven’t had much experience doing these kinds of repairs. We often get calls from homeowners that had a small plumbing problem that they turned into a massive plumbing problem. It would have been easier and less expensive for them if they had just called us from the beginning.

Most homeowners have no or little experience fixing pipes that have cracked or burst. Nor do they have the parts on hand to make the necessary repairs. And let’s face it: have you ever made just ONE trip to the hardware store to find the parts you need? Not likely. Mutliple trips means wasted time and money. Most homeowners would rather guess when it comes to buying a part or a tool rather than have to come back to the store a second or third time. Often, that means money goes down the drain.

Finally, there is tremendous psychological pressure when you have a major leak. You’ve shut down your main water valve, and now the clock is ticking. You’ve got to get this repair done fast! There’s simply no time for on-the-job training. Not having water is inconvenient. Not having water for 10 or 15 hours is a major pain in the you-know-what.
