4 Reasons to Call a Reno Plumber Instead of DIY


You may look at a leaking faucet, ominous stains on the ceiling, rattling pipes, or some other plumbing issue as an easy DIY project. Fix it yourself, and you’ll save time and money, right? You can follow a YouTube video or how-to page online for step-by-step instructions. How hard can it be? You’d be surprised! Here are four reasons to call an experienced Reno plumber instead of DIY.

The Right Training for the Job

If you’re like most people, you trust the experts for their knowledge and experience. If you have a medical issue, you call a doctor. If you have a legal issue, you find an attorney. If you have a plumbing issue, and you aren’t a capable plumber yourself, you’ll save time, aggravation and even money by calling in a professional. They have the experience and training for the job, and unless you can say the same, why wouldn’t you turn to an expert?

It’s a Time Saver

What’s your time worth? Are you willing to invest the time it will take to find a solution for your plumbing problem, drive to the hardware store for your materials, and make the repair yourself? Plumbing is a learned skill, and it’s unlikely that you’ll knock out a repair faster than a professional — and that’s assuming you can do it right! Call in a plumber from River City Plumbing, and enjoy your weekend without having to troubleshoot a leaky toilet.

It’s Far More Convenient

No one should have to put their life on hold because of a plumbing disaster. Calling in a professional to deal with your plumbing problem means you can get on with your life, secure in the knowledge that your plumbing will be in working repair very soon — and with no sweat off your back. That’s especially true during true plumbing emergencies on holidays or after-hours. River City Plumbing here in Reno offers 24-hour emergency service. When you need us, we’ll be there.

A Job Done Right

Doing your plumbing yourself means no guarantees on your work. Unless you really know what you’re doing, are you willing to take the chance that you’ve inadvertently stuck a bandage on the whole thing? Working with a professional plumber means a job done right the first time. Here at River City Plumbing, we stand behind our work. Depending on the work being done, our warranties are between one year and a full twenty-five years! If the idea of a guarantee on your plumbing work sounds appealing, contact us today for more information.

The Takeaway

Don’t make the mistake of assuming a DIY approach to plumbing will save you time and money. It’s very often the case that you find yourself in over your head and scrambling to call a plumber to save the day. Take advantage of the experience and expertise of a professional plumber the next time you have a plumbing issue.
