When it comes to your plumbing needs, you may be tempted to go with someone based on price. Sure you may have a tight budget, everyone does, but this is not always the best way to go. You know the old saying, you get what you pay for? Well this holds true when it comes to a quality plumber. Let’s start with workmanship. Hiring just some guy may not be the right idea, especially if it’s a big job, like clearing out a drain. Sure he may be able to get a pipe snake down there and get it cleared, temporarily, but what if you have roots in your pipes? They probably won’t have the tools or equipment to inspect the pipes properly, such as a remote camera that travels down the drain pipes, identifying problems along the way. Will they have the tools to completely clear the pipes and correct the underlying problem permanently? Probably not. In fact, many of these low budget plumbers will more than likely refer you to a professional like A Plumber.
Another reason to choose a professional company is that you will get faster, better service. A professional company is going to have the tools and equipment to get the job done right the first time, and within a short amount of time. If there are problems that take longer, they are going to tell you before they start, so you know there is going to be a delay.
It is important that you have someone on hand to help you out in an emergency. Problems don’t always happen during the day, at regular business hours. Usually these emergencies happen at 2 in the morning, on a weekend, even on a holiday. Sure a regular plumber may be able to help you in an emergency in most cases, but now you are at their mercy, they can charge you just about anything and you are going to pay it, because you have to. A professional company is going to be on call, keeping the same emergency hours, but a good company isn’t going to rake you over the coals to come out in an emergency. If you have used them before, in many cases you may even get a discount. In addition, a professional company may even offer a maintenance program, where they come out and maintain your plumbing, preventing problems from happening in the first place.
So now you know some of the reasons to hire a professional when it comes to plumbing and drains, but who should you call? Well if you live in Melbourne, the first company you should call is A Plumber.
