3 Great Questions to Ask Your Local Plumber

Your house’s plumbing is one of its most important components and when something goes wrong, the results can be disastrous. When you get some plumbing work done, there are a few questions that you should ask to ensure that your plumbing will be better taken care of in the future. Here are three such questions.

1. What Caused the Problem?

Plumbing problems don’t just happen. They’re usually caused by something. When your plumber comes out to take a look at an issue, ask them about it. Find out what the root cause of the issue was so that you can make informed decisions about your daily plumbing use. Prevention is the key to taking care of your home and prevention relies on knowledge.

2. How Can I Avoid Said Problem in the Future?

Knowledge is power and your plumber is very knowledgeable about well, plumbing. Your local plumber is a wellspring of information about your drains, toilets, sinks, and everything in between, so ask them questions about your particular plumbing problems. Odds are that they will be able to give you some guidance on how to avoid getting that same drain clogged over and over again.

3. What Do You Recommend?

When you know the intimate details of an industry, you know how to make informed decisions about fixtures and features. You ask a mechanic about car parts. You ask a musician how to buy headphones. When it comes to questions about your plumbing features, you ask a plumber. Your local plumber has insights on the best water heaters on the market and which one will fit in with your needs and home the best. If you’re going to invest in a new toilet, find out which one is going to fit.
