Every homeowner has invested some time in DIY projects in an effort to save some money. After all, every household runs on a budget. Why not save where you can, to splurge where you want to. Many of us have invested an afternoon in a basic repair so that the money can be better spent on a night on the town, a great dinner or tickets to a sporting event. But when the issue involves your home’s plumbing, take a moment to consider all of the things that could go wrong and cost you a considerable amount of money.
It Only Looks Simple
You crawl under your kitchen sink only to discover that there is a tiny drip coming from a water line. But the drip appears to be coming from a threaded fitting, so you begin to smile. A trip out to the garage to grab a wrench, and you will have this drip fixed in no time. But after a slight turn of the fitting, the drip is still taunting you. However, you are sure that one more twist with a little more force will get the job done. You tighten your grip and make one last yank to tighten the fitting. Instead of stopping the drip, you have now broken another fitting loose, and water is flowing out like a fire hose.
If this has happened to you, then you know the value in calling (214) 388-4525, when you see what appears to be a simple plumbing issue in your home. You have learned the valuable lesson that the pros from Metroplex Leak & Line have the expertise to fix tiny issues without creating huge ones. Years of training and experience pay off, even when the job looks very simple and straightforward.
Everyone Makes Mistakes
Think of the leak under your sink again. Let’s consider the possibility that your first effort with the wrench actually stopped the water line from dripping. You sat back with a smug smile on your face for a minute or two and then returned the wrench to the garage, never to think about the drip again. That is until a few days later when you walk into the kitchen and realize that you are standing in an inch of water.
While you did momentarily fix the drip, you also caused other damage, that was not obvious for a few days. But now there is a significant gusher under your sink that has caused water damage to the cabinetry, floor, and walls. Once your plumbing is repaired by a professional, you will now be looking for someone to fix the water damage. In most cases, all of this could have been avoided by calling (214) 388-4525 and letting a pro handle the repair.
But let’s also imagine that a Metroplex Leak & Line pro made the same mistake, and it resulted in a flood three days after the repair was completed. If this is ever the case, all you need to do is call (214) 388-4525 and explain the issue. Our warranty will correct the repair for you, and our insurance and bond assure you of a complete restoration to any water damage that was caused by our plumber. The moral of the story is to use a pro from Metroplex Leak & Line and enjoy the peace of mind of our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee, our warranty, and our insurance.
Don’t Risk Your Health or Safety
Finally, you are making a plumbing repair to save yourself some money. But there can be many hazards involved, including hot pipes, sharp pipes, tight spaces, and malfunctioning tools. In the scenario of fixing the leak under your sink, what would happen if the wrench had slipped or broken? The result could be a broken finger, hand, or wrist. Could you do your job for a month or two in a cast or with limited mobility? Is the cost of a plumbing service call from Metroplex Leak & Line worth risking a month’s pay? And don’t forget the doctor bills, health insurance deductible, and misery that you will be experiencing.
The choice is simple when you consider what you are risking to save a few bucks. At Metroplex Leak & Line, we offer our customers affordable rates and free, no-obligation price quotes before we ever make a repair. You will always know what our work will cost and that you will have a warranty and professional insurance in the event of any issue in the future.
