Most people prefer to cut costs wherever possible. This can be an admirable endeavor, however, some things, as we know all too well, are best handled by a professional or end up costing more in the end. A skilled trade takes a lot of training and experience to learn. “I changed the faucet before; I can handle all kitchen plumbing” has gotten many of our now customers into trouble. Putman & Son’s Plumbing has been called many times after “Handy Man” antics. A cost analysis of some DIY scenes, often demonstrate that calling a professional plumber first is not only cost effective but the job is done quicker and correctly the first time. While cases may vary, it is estimated that on average roughly 50% of DIY projects never are completed or need to be finished up by a professional. Sure, if you have the know-how, fixing a small leak in your faucet or cleaning the U-joint on your kitchen sink may no longer require a professional . . . so long as you have the skills, tools and experience; however, there is always peace of mind in knowing that a job is done proficiently by a certified plumber.
With an untrained eye, many do not notice that there is something as problematic and damaging as a leak. A small leak can end up being a costly mistake and can waste up to 3/4 gallons of water per day. This can add up to roughly $20 extra on your monthly water bill, and that’s if it only drips once every 6 seconds.
