There are a few services that are almost synonymous with plumbers: unclogging pipes, fixing toilets, and even replacing water heaters. But there are several more skills that plumbers have that few homeowners ever think about that will not only fix possible issues but that may also improve your quality of life. Below are four services that nearly every plumber in the United States is licensed to perform for you. If you see any of them that you need, call a plumber to schedule an appointment today.
Gas Line Extension
For people who love to cook in their homes, a massive gas range is one of those amenities that they crave. Unfortunately, this is not something that you can DIY; working on gas lines usually require some type of permits or licenses, which a plumber has. Not only that, but they'll be able to recommend the most efficient route for your line to be installed, which will make your range and your energy savings more efficient.
Another project that most homeowners would love to undertake is upgrading their bathroom. Turning your regular old bathtub into a spa can make all the difference between ending the day exhausted or rejuvenated. Since plumbers work on a variety of bathroom styles, they're not only able to recommend the brand and model that will give you the most bang for your buck but they can also recommend styles that will work well with your kitchen, acting as de facto interior designers. They can also recommend the plumbing layouts that will cost the least by using existing piping to run for your home.
Water Purifier Installation
Since nearly 85% of homes use some kind of hard water, sediment buildup and health issues are just a simple fact of life. A plumber can install a water filtration system in your home that not only removes the hard water but purifies it as well, which can cause a number of health benefits as well as decreased repairs on your plumbing system. It's a relatively low-cost but high-impact service they can dramatically improve your quality of life.
Your foundation is one of your home's most important structural components, but a slab leak can slowly erode the foundation from the inside out, causing hundreds or even thousands of dollars in repair bills. A properly trained plumber will not only help you to isolate and fix the leak but can even help you repair the areas that were affected as well. This creates a one-stop shop that takes care of your problems with minimal overhead from the homeowner.
