Summer is the season of DIY, but Master Plumbers BT Plumbing & Gas Ltd says it’s best to leave it to the professionals.
The DIY culture is strong in New Zealand, but it can often lead to people being over confident in taking on jobs around the home.
“While Kiwi ingenuity is important to our success as a nation, people run into trouble every day by trying to take on jobs that should be done by skilled tradespeople.”
The leading Auckland plumbing company, members of the Master Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Association, says summer is DIY season in New Zealand.
“More people are off work and think they might have a go at fixing that problem they’ve been putting off for ages.”
With more than 25 years in the industry, BT Plumbing & Gas Ltd says DIY enthusiasts should know their limits and, if in doubt, contact the professionals.
“There’s a reason why Mondays tend to be a plumber’s busiest day. We’re often having to clean up the mess made by weekend warriors who are out of their depth.
“We’ve seen some shockers over the years and this problem becomes more widespread over summer.”
Homeowners might be more than capable of unblocking a drain or replacing a tap washer, but for the more complex jobs it can save time and money to call your local Master Plumber, like BT Plumbing & Gas Ltd.
“Most people don’t understand the intricacies of plumbing. There’s a reason why an apprentice does 8000 hours’ work and two years’ supervision before becoming qualified — there’s so much for them to learn,” BT Plumbing & Gas Ltd says.
If you’re thinking of doing some DIY plumbing in your home over summer, it would be advisable to think again.
“Anything beyond simple DIY plumbing work is illegal, and it could also cause further damage to your home,” BT Plumbing & Gas Ltd says.
“We can provide you with expert advice and follow through with quality workmanship, saving you time, stress, and money this summer.”
