Things You Dont Know About Plumbers

Every day the people in your household rely on having a quality plumbing system. Whether you are washing a load of laundry, taking a shower before work or rinsing dishes after dinner. Yet, most people remain unaware of the importance of their pipes and fixtures until it stops working. Suddenly, when people are suffering from stubborn recurring clogs, wastewater backups, leaks or indoor flooding, they quickly turn to professional plumbers who can help save the day. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, we provide high quality residential and commercial plumbing services for customers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and surrounding metro area cities. Have you often wondered what the life of a plumbing specialist is like behind the scenes? Here are a few things that most people do not know about plumbers.

They Take Risks to Keep Their Customers Safe

Plumbing may not seem like a dangerous profession on the surface, but some of the work performed by plumbers on a regular basis can be quite hazardous. Whether they are dealing with a burst pipe with up to 100 pounds of water pressure, or exposing themselves to harmful bacteria during a sewer line collapse, plumbers often put themselves on the front lines of danger to help their customers stay safe and recover from major plumbing problems.

They Know that YouTube Tutorials Cannot Replace Years of Education and Experience

Many well-meaning homeowners first turn to internet tutorials to install, repair or replace their pipes or fixtures themselves. While this may seem like an economical and practical approach at first, most property owners quickly realize they are in over their head. Avoid water damage, future repairs and premature replacements by calling a professional plumber at the first sign of trouble. A certified plumber will have the tools, training and hands on experience needed to fix your plumbing issues quickly, accurately and affordably.

Professional Plumbers Wish They Could Rename the Garbage Disposal

Since the name of the device which grinds up pieces of food inside your sink has been labeled garbage disposal, many people assume that it is perfectly fine to toss all their trash into it. The result is often grease buildup and severe clogs deep inside your drain line. While a garbage disposal can make meal preparation and cleanup more convenient, it shouldnt be used to dispose of certain items like oil, bacon grease, eggshells, coffee grounds, rice, potatoes, corn husks and similar items that are notorious for causing plumbing problems.
