When minor plumbing repairs are needed, such as fixing dripping pipe joints or clearing a sink U-bend, hard-pressed homeowners may wonder whether to tackle the job themselves. In contrast, rather than attempt DIY, others prefer to let a professional Saskatoon plumber take care of the work.
Burst pipes spraying water inside a home is clearly an urgent situation and requires an emergency plumbing service. If a pipe or joint has a less serious but noticeable leak, it also makes good sense to call in an expert before the part fails, causing damage and requiring repairs that are more extensive and costly.
