Do Plumbers Install Dishwashers?

A dishwasher is a must-have kitchen appliance for anyone who's looking for an effective way to clean dishware, cookware, and cutlery. This appliance makes cleaning dishes easier and effortless.

All you have to do is load the dishes into the appliance, add detergent into the detergent compartment and set washing cycles.

A dishwasher helps you save time, saves you water, gets rid of germs, and offers many other benefits.

If you’re considering installing a dishwasher in your kitchen, you may be torn between doing the job yourself and hiring a reputable plumber to help you.

Installing a dishwasher can be a DIY job for some avid do-it-yourselfers, but it’s always advisable to hire a knowledgeable and experienced plumber to install a dishwasher for you.

There are many things that could go wrong if you go the DIY route.

If you need help with installing a dishwasher, you can rely on the plumbers at Mr. Rooter Plumbing to do an efficient job.

Reasons You Should Hire an Experienced Plumber to Install Your Dishwasher

  • Reputable plumbers have the proper tools and materials

As a do-it-yourselfer, you may not have the necessary tools and materials to install a dishwasher. If you decide to purchase the tools and materials, the job will cost you more than what you would spend on hiring a expert plumber to get it done. On the other hand, a reputable plumbing company has access to advanced tools that aren’t easily available to do-it-yourselfers.

  • Experience Matters in Dishwasher Installation

Installing a dishwasher is a technical job that involves making a number of connections to ensure the appliance works properly.

If you are replacing an existing dishwasher, the old unit will have to be removed from the current location to provide space for the new appliance. Moreover, there are specific codes and regulations that must be adhered to when installing a dishwasher.

The whole process entails attaching water supply lines, installing the water pressure reducing valve, connecting the drain hose to the sink drain, and connecting the appliance to the power supply.

All these steps must be completed correctly, otherwise, the appliance will not function correctly.

Clearly, this is not the kind of job you want to take chances with. If you’re not an experienced plumber, you’re more likely to make mistakes that could render the unit dysfunctional.

  • Avoid a leaking dishwasher

One of the top culprits behind household water leaks is the dishwasher. This appliance may leak as a result of improper connections, valves becoming loose, misalignments, leaking dishwasher door, and many other causes.

Using trial and error in the installation of a dishwasher is the easiest way to have a leaking dishwasher and water damage in your home.

Bottom Line

As you can see, dishwasher installation should be left to dependable plumbers who know what they are doing. Going the DIY route is never advisable as it can lead to many problems that will cost you more money down the road.
