How do I know when I should call Marines Plumbing? What issues warrant a professional versus some YouTube inspired DIY?
This is a great question and one that we know many homeowners and renters face. Yes, there are some issues that are easily resolved on your own (clogs), some that can be resolved on your own with a little more effort (leaky pipes), and then some that always require a professional (installations).
Regardless of the plumbing scenario you face, if you do not feel comfortable troubleshooting the issue, or if you have tried and are at a loss to even diagnose what is going on, do not hesitate to reach out to us! We are a company driven by our customers so if you need something (troubleshooting, diagnostics, repair) we are happy to help in any way we can.
The following scenarios are when you absolutely should call Marines Plumbing or when you may need to call us if the issue isn’t as easily fixed as previously thought.
There are some scenarios where you should always call in a professional. These include:
Another scenario that requires a professional plumber is a routine plumbing inspection. While you can (and should) check your pipes, tubs, and sinks regularly for any visible cracks or leaks, Marines Plumbing can do an in-depth inspection for you that will dig deeper to see if there are any potential issues starting. These inspections are important as they can catch leaks when they are minor
before they become major issues taking lots of time, effort, and money to fix.
At Marines Plumbing, we will do the following as part of an inspection:
There are so many common issues that have easy fixes, but then become complicated over time or are more complex than you originally thought. In these cases, you may not always need a professional, but sometimes you will.
If you live in the Northern Virginia area and need a professional plumber for any of the reasons above or any reasons we didn’t cover, contact Marines Plumbing today!
