I am often asked for ways to save money on plumbing repairs. The answer to this varies depending on what repairs we are talking about.
There is a general answer for how to save on household plumbing repairs that applies to almost everyone.
Two ways to save on plumbing repairs:
- Plumbing Maintenance - Keep up with regular plumbing maintenance to help avoid major problems and emergencies. If you don't let things get out of hand you can sometimes avoid costly repairs.
- Fixing Common Problems - Learn about some of the most common plumbing problems and how to fix them yourself. If you can take care of several small repairs on your own you can save a lot by avoiding the service call to your plumber.
