NEED PLUMBING HELP?
Why You Should Hire a Plumber for Your Toilet Installation
Whether your toilet is long overdue for a replacement, or you simply want to upgrade some elements in your bathroom, a toilet installation isn’t something you should do by yourself. Just check out the three main reasons why you should hire a plumber to install your toilet.
Amount of Materials
In order for a toilet installation, all you need is a toilet, right? Unfortunately, no. In fact, you need a decent amount of materials to adequately install a toilet. If you don’t hire a plumber, you’re going to need to purchase all the necessary tools and equipment to install your toilet. Not only will this be pricy, but you will also need to spend the necessary time to research the exact tools and equipment you need. Luckily, if you hire a plumber, you won’t have to worry about the extra time and money it will take to acquire the tools and materials you need.
Complication of Installation
In essence, toilet installation should be simple. After all, you just need to remove your current toilet and replace it with a new one. But, it’s not as simple as it seems. Even if you seem to properly install your toilet, there’s a risk it isn’t installed properly and might cause damage to your home.
For example, one homeowner who attempted to install their own toilet ended up improperly installing it. This caused the toilet to leak, which made the smoke detectors go off because of water damage to their electric wiring. Not only did they have to hire a plumber to fix the toilet and leak, but they also had to hire someone to fix the water damage.
Lastly, toilet installation comes with some safety risks. After all, you’re dealing with some heavy duty equipment. If you improperly use the equipment or install the toilet incorrectly, you are putting yourself and others at risk. But if you hire a plumber to install your toilet, you will have peace of mind knowing your toilet is adequately, safely, and properly installed.
