Many people don’t know exactly what a plumber does. They do know they need help if their toilet is not working properly or if there sink or faucet is leaking. And they know something is wrong if water starts to build up in the basement, and around the bathtub, sink or toilet. Most people know they need someone to fix this problem and the first thing they do is call a plumber.

So what duties does a Plumbers Whittier perform?

Plumbers work on more than just water pipes, even though that’s their main job. They are qualified and trained to work on more than just a frozen or busted water pipe. They also work on heating, cooling, and water supplies. And they not only tackle huge complicated pipes, but washer and dryers, and even dishwashers.

Some plumbers are qualified and certified in the area of electrical components, and can perform services on your electrical devices such as furnaces, water boilers, and even circuits and breakers. When searching for a plumber, ask them if they are trained and certified to work on electrical repairs. Be sure to find out if the plumber can legitimately work on the electrical repairs first before hiring them to actually work on your electrical repairs. If a problem arises and they are not certified to work on electrical issues, you may not be covered and will end up spending additional money to fix the problem. You won’t be able to be recompensed either.

Depending on your city, some water issues plumbers cannot perform because it’s not there responsibility, such as sewer lines. Although Plumbers work on drains, they are not responsible for sewer drainage problems. If your drainage problem is due to the sewer, which the city is responsible for, you will need to contact your city’s water department to fix the problem.

A Plumber Whittier will let you know exactly what is causing your water or drainage problem. They will let you know if it’s a busted water pipe or a broken water pump. Both instances will cost a lot of money so make sure the plumber can provide you with multiple quotes to replace your pipes or water pump.

Before you hire a plumber do a thorough background research on the plumber, making sure they are qualified to actually perform the work.
