When a sink gets clogged up in your home, fixing the problem by yourself can be an easy task. A little plunging here, some unclogging solution there and you’re good to go. Other times, that may not be enough. Instead of trying every do-it-yourself method you can find, you’ll be better off securing the services of a Master Plumber.
Becoming a plumber requires years of training and/or experience. In some cases, plumbers are also required to be licensed so that relevant building codes or regulations are followed. The difference between a plumber and a master plumber is that master plumbers have more experience and can help you with a wide range of home installations and upgrades to make your home safer, more comfortable and even more energy efficient. A Master Plumber is someone who has shown mastery of the trade of plumbing. This can be either in one particular area of plumbing or he may be experienced in multiple areas of the plumbing trade.
When looking for a master plumber, you have many choices. There are local plumbers in almost every neighbourhood to ensure you can always find a plumber from different plumbing companies and associations. Depending on what your plumbing problems are, a master plumber can be chosen from any of the following fields:
• Asbestos Removal & roof replacement
• Bathroom renovation
• Gas fitting
• Industry Fire Protection & residential sprinkler systems
• General plumbers, maintenance including gutters and downpipes, taps, water leaks, renovations and extensions
• Heating, cooling & ventilation
• High rise & commercial sanitary plumbers
• Metal roofing domestic & commercial new & replacements
• Backflow prevention
• Drainage and sewer blockages
• Green plumber including solar, hot water products and energy efficient
• Industrial maintenance
A Master Plumber who specialises in home plumbing repairs and services can install and fix any problem concerning your home plumbing system. The problems are either with water that flows into your homes or wastewater that flows out. They also deal with the cold water supply, hot water supply, pipe ventilation or drainage or sewage. The most common problems found in homes are:
• Leaks – these can be cause by worn out pipes or clogs
• Blocked or leaking toilet – if your toilet has a leak it is probably caused by a worn out seal; clogged or blocked toilets because of flushing objects that should not be flushed down the toilet
• Clogged kitchen sink – when food gathers and blocks the pipe it causes the sink to get clogged
• Noisy pipes – when air gets into your pipes it can cause noises or when piping anchors get loose
• No hot water – mostly due to the thermostat failing or a problem with the heater element
Getting a Master Plumber is not something you have to wait to do when you suddenly have water running down the stairs. You can secure the services of one to check on your pipes and make sure everything is in tip top shape. Prevention saves you the hassle of being without hot water on a cold winter’s day when you have an important meeting to go to.
The next time you have your plumber passing by; ask him to do some Plumbing System maintenance so you avoid future problems. He can fine tune sprinklers, fix dribbling shower-heads, check the old pipes that may be rusty or leaking. Don’t worry about ruining your beautiful wooden, tiled floors or gardens; Master plumbers use cameras with long cables these days so no digging needs to be done to check pipes. When combining this with Hydro Jetting you can ensure your pipes stay in tip top condition.
