When to hire a plumber?
Plumbers come in handy in different situations. You probably already know that they can install plumbing and fix leaks, but there are so many other jobs they can do for you. Here's an overview!
Fixing and detecting leaks
A plumber can not only fix a leak, but also detect it via smoke gas detection, camera inspection or smoke gas detection. Since a professional has the necessary equipment for this, the leak is found faster than if you do it yourself.
Once the location of the leak is identified, the plumber can fix it. Not sure if there is a leak? Then it's better not to stay in doubt for too long. Call in the plumber in time for inspection to avoid as much damage as possible.
Laying or relocating pipes
The plumber can also lay new pipes in a new house or an old house that you are renovating. Do you already have the necessary pipes but want to move them? Then he or she can also help you. Moreover, this applies not only to water pipes, but also to gas pipes. For new homes, the plumber also installs the sewage system.
