3 Plumbing Repair Jobs You Should Never Try on Your Own, Honolulu, Hawaii

If you’re a pretty handy person, and you enjoy doing your own home repairs, then there are certain minor plumbing jobs you may be able to take care of yourself. Some tasks, though, are too important to trust to anyone but an experienced professional. To prevent further damage to your home or injury to yourself, Fast Rooter Plumbing in Oahu recommends calling a plumber to handle the following issues:

  • Leaking pipes: Applying a patch to a leaking pipe may temporarily stop the dripping, but a long-term repair usually requires replacing the pipe. You may be able to get the new one in without leaks, but unless you have previous plumbing experience, you’re better off leaving it to a professional.
  • Gas leaks: A leaking gas line is probably the most dangerous situation that can occur in your home. Many people make the mistake of trying to locate the source of the leak themselves instead of evacuating immediately. Anything can cause an explosion, so call the utility company and a plumber right away if you smell gas.
  • Clogged sewage lines: These are usually inaccessible to most homeowners, with leaks that are beyond the skills of the average DIY enthusiast. A sewage backup can ruin your home and yard, creating noxious odors and even hazardous health conditions. This is definitely a job for an experienced plumber.
