What You Should Know About Plumbers
If you thought you knew everything there is to know about plumbers, think again.
At Mason Mechanical, our plumbers have a few secrets to share that could benefit your home plumbing, heating and cooling systems.
We are Always Facing New Challenges
There is never a dull moment in the world of plumbing. From one job to the next, the world of a plumber can dramatically change. We can go from repairing a leaking toilet to figuring out how to remove toys jammed in swimming pool plumbing.
Plumbers are Not Fans of the Name “Garbage Disposal”
As one of the most utilized plumbed-in devices in the kitchen, we see a lot of blocked and damaged garbage disposal units. The problem with the name is that it does not accurately reflect the unit’s intended use. Putting everyday waste (not to mention certain food waste) down the garbage disposal is a bad idea. Parts can become clogged or damaged, leaving a messy job for the plumber.
Kitchen Waste Beats Human Waste
You would imagine that plumbers prefer working in kitchens over bathrooms. However, you would be wrong. Human waste problems are seldom as messy as kitchen waste. Grease and decaying food are two of the most disgusting substances that plumbers deal with on a job. Bathroom waste and dirt are not far behind on the list, but the fact remains that the majority of plumbers hate working with kitchen waste most of all.
Plumbing is a Risky Job
Plumbing is a lot riskier than most people realize. We are dealing with high water and air-pressure systems that can pack a real punch. The pressure that results from a burst pipe can measure anywhere between 40 to 100 pounds. If a plumber is on the receiving end of that pressure, serious injuries or even fatalities can result. There are also hazardous chemicals, heavy-duty equipment and working around bacteria and pathogens that can cause sickness or death.
Sometimes, Age Matters in Plumbing
It is generally a good idea to hire a plumber who is older and, therefore, has more experience. There are a number of reasons for this, including the ability to work with older types of heating or cooling systems. However, at Mason Mechanical, we do not discriminate when it comes to our hiring or training practices. All our plumbing technicians have the experience and knowledge to handle even the most complex plumbing jobs.
Are You a YouTube or Google Plumber?
It’s good to save money by carrying out DIY tasks around the home. However, it doesn’t pay to take on more than you can handle. There are some plumbing jobs that are best left to the professionals. Not only are you potentially risking your plumbing and home, but you could also end up with significant injuries from attempting to use specialist equipment. If it isn’t a small maintenance task, put your faith in the professionalism and affordability of Mason Mechanical to save yourself the headache and potential pain.
We Save You Money Before You Know You Needed It
Preventive maintenance is not just a concept for big businesses. At Mason Mechanical, our maintenance services are designed to identify potential problems that require repairs. Plumbing is an area where damage is typically progressive and can spread to other parts of a particular system. A good example of this is a septic tank that is not pumped regularly, according to the size of the tank and the number of people living at the property. If it comes to the point where the septic tank requires repairs, you are looking at much higher costs than you would have incurred for regular maintenance.
Plumbers Offer Marriage Counseling… of Sorts
Plumbing DIYers are the heroes of the day when everything goes right – which isn’t often. As plumbers, we have saved the day for many marriages by preventing a burst pipe from becoming a major disaster after a husband or wife tried to save money on maintenance costs.
