What Is a Plumbing Appliance?A plumbing appliance or fixture, as they are sometimes called, is any fixture that is used for the distribution and or use of water into the home. This can be any toilet, shower, faucet, or even sinks. Each must be installed carefully and has their own specific instructions for being installed correctly as well. If improperly installed costly repairs to a newly remodeled room may be the next step further down the road, or maybe sooner. Plumbing appliances can even include washing machines, dishwashers, water heaters, water hose connections, and yes even a garbage disposal. This is because they use and distribute water in the home. It is important to keep them in perfect working order ensure that they work the way they should.
Installation and Maintenance of Plumbing AppliancesHaving a properly installed appliance keeps your plumbing installation costs down, as it will not need repairs so soon after installation. However, to ensure that your appliances maintain their ideal working order it is a good idea to have them service and inspected on a regular basis. In doing so, the appliances in your home can be checked to ensure they are working as they should and that no moving part is failing or needs to be replaced. Our techs can install and inspect your appliances ensuring that they are in pristine working order. While doing so if they find any repairs that need to be made they will notify you of what needs to be repaired before even attempting to do so. Proper maintenance of your plumbing appliances will also help you to reduce your water use as well. When a fixture does not have proper maintenance conducted regularly it can hinder its working ability. This is not something you want for your appliances. For example, a washing machine hose that is not properly maintained can result in a burst hose. These hoses can release up to 500 gallons of water per hour, ensuring that these are kept in pristine condition can prevent costly repairs.
DIY or Call a Professional Plumber in Bridgewater?In some cases maintenance and even installation of a plumbing appliance can be handled by the homeowner, however, it is a better choice to have a trained licensed plumber do the job. This way if there are any unforeseen problems the professional will know exactly what to do and can handle them immediately. Instead of having to stop and buy more parts, or the inevitable of having to call the tech anyway. Another reason that it may be better to call in one of our servicemen is because some DIY projects may be beyond a homeowners expertise level. When a project is above the expertise of a homeowner then mistakes can happen because they don’t understand what they are doing. Wrong tools may be used, they may forget how things go back together, etc. Professionals can also identify any other problems such as mold or unsafe piping and can go over a plan to fix these issues. A rule of thumb to know is that if you don’t know how to handle the plumbing problem call a professional, not a friend or family member. When should you call in the experts:
- In an emergency (burst pipes, excessively overflowing toilets, etc)
- water heater problems
- sprinkler system problems
- sump pump repairs and issues
- external plumbing issues (pipes with roots in them, etc)
DIY possibilities and things not to do:
- clog toilet- however this can actually be a professional call as plunging a toilet can make the matter worse.
- faucet repair and installation (however, newer models are more difficult to install and may require a professional.)
- Minor leaks around the home( pipe leaks, toilet leaks, faucet leaks) can be handled by the homeowner, but if they don’t know what to do it is best to call a specialist.
- Don’t forget to turn off the water
- Ensure that you have the proper tools (if you don’t call us)
- Drain cleaners can actually harm drains so overuse is a bad thing
- ensure that the DIY you are doing is not a job that needs a permit
