Why it’s OK to Call a Plumber for Small Jobs

DIY Isn’t for Everyone

It’s happened again – your drains are clogged, or your faucet’s leaking, and it’s time to beak out those handy do-it-yourself solutions you got from the hardware store or online. But these amateur fixes can be messy and time-consuming, and there’s no guarantee that they’ll work the way they say they do. And it’s not like you can call a plumber for these issues, right? Plumbers are for bigger issues like burst pipes and backflow, not minor leaks and broken shower heads.

The truth is, our plumbing experts are always ready to provide the help you need, even if it’s just a small job. Not only are we just happy to help, but we know that small plumbing issues can lead to big problems if not fixed properly. Plus, we’ll handle the cleanup and make sure surrounding pipes and fixtures aren’t damaged.

Taking Out the Guesswork

Even if you’ve done your research, you don’t have the years of training and experience that makes our plumbers so good at what they do. This means that we can fix your issues fast, with the confidence that we understand exactly what needs to be done. Calling a professional plumber for small issues may seem excessive, but you aren’t calling us because you need a few screws tightened, you’re calling us because you need advice and expertise that only a licensed plumber can provide.

Add a Professional Touch to Small Repairs

Your plumbing system is a complicated web of interconnected parts and fixtures and making even the smallest of adjustments can impact the whole system. Calling a plumber is the best way to ensure that minor fixes don’t wreak havoc on your entire system, or that lingering issues aren’t ignored and left to develop further. Below are just a few examples of how our plumbers can use small jobs as an opportunity to save you from dealing with big problems later on.

Slow Drains

The solution to sow drains seems like a simple one – just use store bought drain cleaners or other DIY methods to clean your drains. But are you really getting your drains completely clean? And are you really addressing the root cause of the issue?

Professional drain cleaning isn’t just for big clogs. Our plumbers understand that a slow drain can indicate an issue with your sewer line or pipes, so we take even this small inconvenience seriously. We’ll fully inspect and clean your drains to ensure that water can keep flowing freely through your home, without any big issues popping up.

Low Water Pressure

Calling a plumber just because you aren’t happy with your water pressure seems like a bit much, doesn’t it? But low water pressure is a common symptom of several big plumbing issues, such as water leaks and broken water heaters. Let our plumbers handle your water pressure issues instead of trying to fix it yourself, and we’ll make sure that aren’t any other issues lurking within your pipes.

Replacing Shower Heads

Replacing a shower head may seem simple, but if it’s not done correctly, you could end up with a leak in your plumbing that wastes water an effects performance. Our plumbers are happy to stop by and help you out with even the most minor installations to make sure that you have everything you need to stay comfortable!

Putting Safety First

Aside from efficiency and prevention, there’s another big reason to consider calling the professionals for small jobs – safety. Fixing a garbage disposal or adjusting your pipes may seem simple, but if you’re not careful, you can hurt yourself or damage your home. Our plumbers are fully licensed and insured, and trained to handle even the smallest jobs while prioritizing the safety of you and your family.

If you need minor plumbing fixes in your home, but feel uncomfortable fixing them on your own, you can always contact us to handle things for you. We’ll tackle even the smallest jobs with the care, quality, and professionalism that Pacific Plumbing of Southern California is known for!
