As a homeowner, requiring plumbing repairs is unavoidable. Since plumbing systems are quite extensive and are exposed to heavy usage, they are bound to acquire damage at one time or another. Serious plumbing issues should always be addressed by a plumbing service. This is to ensure that the problem is not exacerbated leading to it escalating. However, minor plumbing work such as unclogging drains and fixing leaking pipes can be carried out by you if you are interested in DIY projects.
