7 Ways to Save Money on Your Plumbing Repair Costs

  • Plumbing issues seem to pop up at the most unexpected time. That’s why, even if you’ve set aside a budget for it, if you run into major trouble, it can easily wipe out your savings in the blink of an eye. Luckily, plumbing as it turns out is a system where you can take some steps to minimize the amount you spend on repairs and we don’t want to leave you in the dark of what we know. If we have your attention, keep reading to learn some tips on how you can cut the cost down.

How to tell if your plumbing is becoming a money-pit?

  • One of the indicative signs that you’ve been putting so much money into your plumbing is when you’ve hired a plumber several times. That’s why as soon as you notice your plumbing has clogged up more than normal and its behaviour is out of ordinary, seek professional help right away. Plumbing professionals like a pipe relining company have the tools to determine what is causing the problem.

How to save on plumbing repair costs?

  • 1. Don’t put off plumbing repair to the last minute – It’s easy to turn a blind eye on a dripping tap or leaking pipe that’s not causing severe inconvenience at the moment. Unfortunately, this can boomerang and give you more headaches down the road. Instead, fix minor problems immediately. A plumbing professional will be able to fix the problem quickly, even provide you advice and options so you’ll never run into the same problem again. Not waiting to fix a minor problem, means the lower the chance of having to pay for emergency service when your minor drip becomes a costly and messy flood.
  •  
  • 2. DIY whether possible – The best way not to spend so much money on plumbing repair is to do the work yourself. But keep in mind that this is only an option when doing simple fixes such as dripping tap or clogged drains. If you feel like you’re in over your head, it’s best to call Revolution Pipe Relining. But if you’re comfortable doing DIY, there are innumerable resources online that can walk you through the step-by-step process. Just remember, if the problem is beyond your understanding and capability to do it, don’t force it. You may end up causing more harm than good.
  •  
  • 3. Know how to turn off your shut-off valve – Minimizing the extent of damage caused by a plumbing misfortune is a great way to cut down on costs. Therefore, it’s critical to keep in mind to shut off your water when disaster strikes. Knowing where and how to shut off your water will also help reduce the risk of other areas of your property from potential water damage. Plumbing fixtures such as the toilet, washing machine, and sink are meant to have a shut-off valve for emergency purposes. Look behind or underneath the fixture for the valve. It usually looks like a lever or a small wheel. If the fixture uses hot and cold water, you’ll find blue and red valves for each line. By simply turning the valves and the lever all the way clockwise or whichever direction of the “off” arrow is pointing saves you water big time. You should also know where to shut off the water for your entire home. In major flood situations, cutting that line can significantly lower repair costs.
  •  
  • 4. Take preventative measures – If there are any easy steps to lower down the chance of costly repair, it will be changing a few habits at home. Stop flushing inappropriate items down the drain. Whether personal hygiene products to baby wipes, these items can cause severe clogs over time that you can’t fix yourself. You should also get into the habit of properly disposing of your cooking grease, not in your sink drain. Grease can contribute to a major sewer backup. In your bathroom, make sure you have a drain filter that is effective at catching hair and other debris. These are just a few habits you can incorporate into your daily routine. It’s easy and will immensely cut the repair cost down in the long run.
  •  
  • 5. Insulate your pipes – Before the cold weather sets in, make sure your plumbing can sustain the freezing temperature. When water freezes, it expands leading to a crack and bursts pipe. The easiest way to avoid this is by wrapping all exposed pipes in your home with an insulator. It also helps to open the cabinet doors under your sinks to allow warm air to reach the plumbing and thaw the pipe. When you have a big freeze, it’s also a good idea to let all the taps in your home drip slightly. The constant drip eases the pressure building up in the pipes and helps prevent them from bursting when the pipes begin to thaw.
  •  
  • 6. Look for Product/Service Guarantees – Even after taking all the necessary steps possible to prevent running into plumbing trouble, you will at a certain point still likely need a plumber. Plumbing issues are inevitable, as the plumbing repair costs. So when looking for a trusted plumber, don’t just keep your eyes open for companies that can get the job done, but also the ones that offer product or service guarantees. This ensures you’re covered if the plumber has to come out again for the same issue. Companies that offer guarantees on their work mean they stand by the quality of their work. Some companies offer good deals to new customers, so you should keep an eye on that too. But beware of those that try to lure customers with extremely low prices but end up providing shoddy work.
  •  
  • 7. Go for a permanent fix – Instead of dealing with a plumber each time you have a problem, just like clogs that happen without a miss, ask a plumbing professional for your options of a permanent fix. Our team can perform a drain camera inspection to find out what’s really going on. If we think a pipe replacement is necessary in cases of the severely damaged pipe, we don’t hesitate to inform our client about it. We can tackle pipe relining solutions for pipes that have either sectional or entire length damage. The cost of pipe relining, though a bit more expensive than normal pipe repair or drain cleaning, saves you money in the long run. Once your severely damaged drain or sewer pipe is fixed, you’ll never ever have to worry about clogs anymore. 

What should you do?

Major plumbing issues can easily break the bank, but they don’t always have to. Just get into the habit of doing the tips we shared above.
