If you think plumbing is an easy job, you would be very wrong. There are so many things to remember from fitting to soldering. There is a lot on the line too as a mistake could lead to someone’s house flooding. In this video, you will learn what are the most common plumbing mistakes that a people make. This is why it is better to hire a professional plumber instead.
The most common issue arises when people forget to turn off their water before starting with repairs. This can lead to a failure in magnificent fashion as water goes spraying everywhere.
It can also lead to a lengthy cleanup. Fortunately, this mistake is also easy to avoid. All you need to do is look for a nearby water valve to shut off the water. If you are not sure, you can always shut off the water to your house entirely. This should prevent some unfortunate mishaps.
Another mistake is to connect steel and copper pipes together. This is especially common with repairs. It may seem harmless, but this connection will actually cause a reaction that will cause rapid erosion of the pipes. They won’t last long and will be a waste. Instead, use a di-electric union piece.
