Homeownership: it’s a joy, but can at times be a struggle. One of the most frustrating things is simply figuring out which projects you can do on your own, and which require the help of an expert. In this post, we’ll look at some common plumbing issues and help you determine when it’s time to call the pros.


Low water pressure can be one of the most annoying things in your home. It makes washing harder, and showers less satisfying. Unfortunately, pinpointing the cause of low water pressure can be difficult. If you try to do it on your own, you could end up causing more problems than you started with. Low water pressure is definitely a need that should be investigated by a professional.


If low water pressure is annoying, cold water (or just lack of hot water) is even worse. That’s something you’d need to get fixed right away. You need hot water for showers, cleaning dishes and clothes, and any number of other household chores. Like low water pressure, it can be difficult for a novice to pinpoint the actual problem. Your hot water heater has a lot of bells and whistles that can be tough to decipher. One wrong move and you could cause more damage, or even end up making your water scalding hot. Integrating gas or electrical lines can make it even more confusing. We suggest calling a pro.


We do a lot of posts about fixing blocked pipes. Repairing and replacing pipes is our specialty at Trenchless Replacement Specialists. But let’s just say you have a clog in your drain. Most DIY homeowners can get some liquid drain cleaners, or buy a consumer-grade plumbing snake. While these items can provide a short-term solution, they can actually damage your pipes in the long run. A serious blockage can be a serious reason to call a professional.
