When you have plumbing problems how do you deal with them? There are a lot of things that you can do. However, the smartest may well be to call on a professional to handle it. Of course, you may accuse us of being bias on this and you would be right, but we can make a solid argument why that is the right choice.
First, when you call in a professional you will have the issue resolved much quicker than if you try to solve it on your own. When a pro plumber comes into your home they can diagnose the issue much quicker and then have it fixed ten times faster because they have the knowledge, tools and experience to get the job done quickly.
Next, by trying to do it yourself you may be causing further issues to be dealt with. As well intentioned as you are if you drop parts down the drain or break some plumbing pipe along the way to trying to fix the plumbing yourself it will now cost you more money to have it fixed.
Finally, when you try to avoid calling us to come and help you there is a high likelihood that you are not going to get the job done completely correctly and this could cause issues in the near future as well. Even if it is fixed now, it may be temporary and the real issue may get larger and come back a lot worse in the future.
As long as you are going to own a home or rent an apartment, you should learn the phone number and other contact methods of your local plumbers. They will be on call and they are happy to help whenever with your plumbing problems. You would be wise to find a plumber that you are happy with and that can become your regular. When this becomes the case you are bound to be more comfortable calling them to come in and do some repair work when it is needed.
