Whether you need repair services for your plumbing appliances or are replacing them completely, a professional plumber is the smartest route to take to ensure a smooth, seamless fix.
A licensed plumber can efficiently install any new plumbing fixtures that you need in your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, or any other area with plumbing.
Working with your plumber to determine what repairs and renovations need to be done can help you stay within your budget and complete your project timely and cost-effectively, plus you will have the knowledge that your installation is done right.
Types of Appliances Your Plumber Should Replace or Repair
Although you may be tempted to tackle the project yourself, especially if the appliance is not too expensive in the first place, shoddily installed plumbing fixtures can result in leaky pipes at best and severe water damage at worst.
In your kitchen, plumbing experts should install kitchen sinks and faucets and garbage disposals. You should also have a plumber check out your refrigerator lines if you have an ice maker or water dispenser.
Bathrooms are a large source of plumbing nightmares waiting to happen if you are not careful. Instead of trying to make repairs or replacements yourself, call in professionals when you need to fix or replace bathroom sinks and faucets, showers, toilets, bidets, and shower faucet cartridges.
You can install a washing machine by yourself, but when it comes to repairs or problems with the lines, you should definitely have a professional check it out.
Replace Versus Repair
Sometimes problems with leaky faucets or other plumbing appliances can be fixed with simple repairs. Other times you may ask your plumber to take into consideration the cost of his or her time and the price of the appliance repair, then compare it to how much it would cost to simply replace it. You may find that replacing the appliance is more cost-effective.
Before deciding for sure on whether you want to replace or repair your damaged fixture, consider these two factors:
- How old is the fixture? Each appliance has a different age limit. Your plumber may recommend that an older appliance be replaced simply because the problems you are currently having will likely continue and need further repair, costing more money in the future and possibly causing moderate or severe damage.
- How much will the repair cost? A temporary fix may be cheaper now, but if you have to continue to repair the same problem you may be better off with a replacement. Weigh the benefits of a new fixture against how much it would cost to repair it multiple times and determine if the cost is worth it.
Work With Your Plumber to Make an Informed Decision
Between helping you determine the longevity of your appliance and costs you can expect to replace or repair, your plumber can help you make an informed decision on whether to replace or repair your plumbing fixture.
