No modern home is complete without a toilet. Depending on where you live, outhouses are generally a thing of the past. Your toilet is also one of the more underrated aspects of your home. You don’t think about it until it’s broken, or you want to spruce up the bathroom. Irrespective of the reasons, you may want to replace or upgrade your toilet. The issue arises where you have to make the decision on how to handle the toilet installation.
Now, you could attempt a DIY job, or you could call in a professional plumber – the choice is yours. It’s important to take all the different facts into consideration. Especially when making the decision to do it yourself or call a professional.
DIY jobs are popular. Mainly because they can be cost-effective in certain circumstances. The problem with attempting to conduct a toilet installation yourself is that your home’s plumbing is not as simple as it may seem.
There’s a reason why everyone isn’t a licensed plumber. No amount of online video tutorials can prepare you for when things go wrong. If your porcelain throne isn’t installed correctly, well, you’ll likely have an overflow of issues. This could include slow drainage, leaks, back-ups, and more.
Ultimately, you’ll end up having to call a professional plumber to correct your mistakes which kind of negates the whole reason for doing it yourself in the first place, right? Not to mention, it’s probably going to cost you more than if you had just hired a professional plumber in the first place.
I think we’ve made it pretty clear: When you hire a professional plumber, you’re not only paying to have your toilet installation done; you’re also paying for a job done by a trained team of experts and reliable professionals. The best part is that by having someone qualified to handle your toilet installation is that they’ll also be able to identify any other areas of concern and recommend possible repairs.
Last, but not least, a professional plumber will be able to advise you on the best toilet for your space. They’ll also probably offer some kind of maintenance plan for regular plumbing services to help maintain your new plumbing fixtures.
There are home plumbing repairs that you can do yourself! These are simple DIY jobs that can’t cause excessive damage to your home’s plumbing system.
Keep in mind, the bigger jobs will need a professional touch. Plumbing professionals have the necessary skills and tools to handle the bigger jobs with ease. They also have the right licenses, permits, and insurance to ensure that the job is covered in the unlikely event something goes wrong during the installation.
While a plumber can offer you an estimate over the phone, that estimate can change. It depends on the circumstances surrounding the replacement which is why it’s recommended that you have accurate and detailed information. What if the problem causing leaks or damage is actually coming from something that can’t be seen by someone who doesn’t know what they’re looking for? Plain and simple—having a plumber on-site to inspect the job gives you access to the most accurate quote.
