Clogged drains or toilets, leaky faucets or pipes, low water pressure or water heater issues are the most typical plumbing challenges homeowners face. Each of these problems has a unique solution, and the variables in every situation may also be many. So how can a homeowner in Fountain Hills know whether he or she should tackle a plumbing problem on their own, or call a professional plumber?

In general, trying to fix your own plumbing issue may lead to an unintentional plumbing code violation, possibly causing even bigger and more expensive problems. Improper venting may result from the simplest mistake leading to your drains not working properly or contaminated water due to backflow problems. So, there’s a fine line between knowing when to DIY with plumbing or call a professionally trained plumber.

The Easier Question to Answer May Be, “When Should I Not Fix a Plumbing Problem Myself?

If you have multiple fixtures backing up, such as a toilet and a sink, the likelihood is that the clog is deeper in the system. Call a professional.
