Common DIY Plumbing Mistakes in Newark

There are some plumbing jobs you can handle yourself in most cases. It’s important to know that you have to be careful and diligent about what you’re working on, though, or things can go wrong in a hurry. Here are some common DIY plumbing mistakes that you should avoid at all costs:

  • broken shower headForgetting to shut off the water and flooding your room. If this happens to you, you’ll want to get the water stopped and then use a wet-vac to try to clean up the mess. It’s important to dry the room ASAP to avoid dangerous mold growth and damage to your home’s structure.
  • Using the wrong materials. It’s easy to make the mistake of mixing copper with galvanized metal (this is a big no-no due to corrosion). So if you haven’t done your research and feel confident with your materials, call us to handle the job for you.
  • Using too much drain cleaner. We don’t like chemical drain cleaner, but if you use it, use it sparingly or you’ll corrode your pipes. The fix? New pipes.
  • Ignoring the local plumbing codes. This can lead to major problems from your completed work not being correct to not being able to sell your home should you wish to in the future. Know the code and then follow it, and be sure to pull permits when necessary. And as always, major jobs like a full home repipe should be left to the professionals.
  • Not admitting defeat. It can be hard to admit you need help with a repair that you thought was easy. There’s nothing wrong with calling it and getting an expert to come in and get you back on track.
