Dangers of Poor Plumbing Installation

Cutting corners on almost any task can lead to poor outcomes. But for plumbing it can be especially disastrous. If you hire amateurs or an inexperienced plumbing contractor to handle your plumbing installation, you could end up with a horde of problems that will far overwhelm the meager upfront savings.

Let’s look at some of the big dangers of a bad plumbing installation. Make sure none of this happens to you: for your plumbing installation in Northridge, CA, use My Drain Company and our experienced team of professional plumbers.

Here is what’s at risk with poor and amateur plumbing installation

Almost anything could go wrong with plumbing because of inferior work. These are three of the issues that show up the most frequently.

  1. Constant leaking problems: This is the #1 most common problem you can encounter from a shoddy job installing in pipes. With inferior workmanship, incorrect gaskets, and poor quality material will come continual leaking at various connectors. Bad caulking or using cheap caulking on toilets and sinks will also lead to leaks. If the installers put in the incorrect pipe sizes, it will also lead to high pressure in the plumbing, and this will trigger leaks (as well as many additional troubles).
  2. Insufficient hot water: Here’s trouble that comes from poorly sizing the water heater, which is a difficult job that requires balancing a number of factors in a home: average water usage, time of usage, number of taps, number of people, etc. This is an easier fix for a professional to remedy, but it is expensive since the whole heater must be replaced, and often the pipes connecting to it as well.
  3. Clogging sinks: Piping in a home must create an easy flow for wastewater that collects at the sewer line out to the street. Poor plumbing management will interrupt this flow and make it easier for sinks, toilets, and various drains around the house to clog, and may lead to serious plumbing problems.

Start off your plumbing installation right: with skilled, experienced professionals handling the job. Your home’s plumbing is too vital a system for your health and comfort to risk with amateur work that may save a little at the front, but end up costing you enormously for many years afterwards.
