Debunking Plumbing

Vancouver Plumber experts Plumbing and Drain Rescue want to Debunk some of the poplular myths about plumbing.

In the old days, water was transported from one place to another via cast iron and lead pipes. This required certain skills and experience with these materials, which deterred homeowners and do-it-yourselfers from tackling home plumbing projects. In recent times and along with advances in the technology and materials being used by plumbers, many DIY types still stray from plumbing jobs. However, the materials used in plumbing nowadays are safer, last longer, and are easier to work with compared to cast iron and lead pipe. The truth is that anyone who is willing to invest some time and wants to save money is essentially able to take on a plumbing project!

Installation has become simplified and manufacturers provide detailed instructions and technical support. And of course, you can always refer to your local plumbing experts at Plumbing & Drain Rescue for tips and advice!

Although certain jobs such as fixing a toilet or unclogging a drain may not seem entirely exhilarating, the materials that are required to do a plumbing job are inexpensive compared to other DIY jobs. The DIY skills you will develop as a DIY plumber may help to diagnose and potentially fix other plumbing issues that may arise in the future. In addition to all this, the skills you learn can save you money in the long-term!
