If you have a plumbing issue and you are looking to tackle it yourself, these are a few things you will want to know before leaving the house to get the right parts for the job.
When it comes to plumbing problems, if you can figure out how to fix the issue yourself, you will ultimately save yourself a lot of money. If the repair necessary is simple enough, it’s likely that you can purchase the supplies necessary to replace what is broken and perform the maintenance necessary to solve the problem. There are several different reasons why this could be a prudent option the next time you have a plumbing need. First of all, you’re saving yourself the time on waiting around for a plumber to come to your house and complete the job. Secondly, you are of course saving yourself the labor cost of hiring a professional. Finally, by learning how to do simple plumbing repairs, you’ll be able to fix similar pluming issues that may arise in the future all on your own.
At Dupont Plumbing in Toronto, we keep a well-stocked parts counter and have highly trained employees to ensure we can provide you with all the resources necessary to complete the repair you’re working on. These are a few of the ways you can maximize your experience when utilizing our parts counter.
Before even stopping by the counter to pick up the parts, you need to first figure out what the problem at hand is. Most of the time this is likely pretty obvious in the case of simple repairs, such as a leaky faucet, a slowly draining sink, a clogged bath or shower, or perhaps even a running toilet. Once you’ve pinpointed exactly what the issue is, you can then determine what sort of parts you might need to reach a solution.
Before arriving at the parts counter, you’ll also want to take note of a few details regarding your specific appliance. In order to make sure you’re getting the right supplies at the parts counter, you need to be able to explain to the associate what you’re dealing with. What is the brand of the appliance, how old is it, what is its style and shape? It might be a good idea to write these details down on a piece of paper so you have that to offer the associate during your visit. In the case of an issue like a leaky faucet, you should also ensure you bring the handle and cartridge to the store with you.
