A small plumbing problem can be the causes of serious problems for a home. This is reason why many people are very cautious when plumbing is being done on their houses. Regardless of the magnitude of your problem, the approach is what matters most because it may worsen or control the situation.
The following are some of the common mistakes that you need to avoid at all costs.
Hurry in fixing up
In most instances people are forced to hurry up in their plumbing jobs because they need their houses in order before some special event, and many other reasons. The fact holds that it’s never advisable to rush through your plumbing job no matter the amount of pressure upon you to complete it. The commonest mistake with regards to this is failing to turn off water. If the task you are carrying out requires that you turn off the water, there is no exception to this, just turn off immediately before proceeding with the work.
Having a crooked installation done
If you lack the ideal skills for doing any plumbing task, do not dare it. One of the biggest mistakes with installing plumbing accessories is forgetting to include some details. No matter how small they may be they account a lot to the overall integrity of the plumbing system. It’s better to spend some extra cash and let an expert do the right job for. This way you will save high costs you will have to incur at the end because you did a shoddy job at repairing by yourself.
Leaving hoses connected in winter
Most of the indoor floods result when frozen pipes burst. One of the most important yet ignored home maintenance routine is disconnecting any garden hoses and in the instance there are separate controls turning off water supply to the outdoor spigots. Because water expands on freezing, pipes are likely to burst as a since they are not designed to accommodate the swelling. If a water pipe bursts in the basement when there is no one to monitor it, there are high chances it will completely ruin the basement.
Mis-matching pipes is a grave mistake in plumbing work, and unless all home plumbing is done by a qualified plumber this is likely to arise. Pipe mismatches arise when the plumber uses incompatible materials and join incorrect sizes. If the correct size is not used, there may be improper sealing and there may be leaks and even a burst. It’s also risky to use a pipe made of copper with that made of galvanized metal because these metals react with each other, posing a health hazard and sick of bursting.
