Three Kinds Of Jobs Plumbers Can Do

Posted on: 21 May 2018


If you have a leaky faucet, clogged drain, or toilet that runs continuously, and you don't know how to make these repairs yourself, the best person for any of these jobs is a plumber. But did you know that a plumber can do so much more?

Here are three more kinds of jobs that are commonly done by plumbers.

Fire Sprinkler Installation

Whether you want a fire sprinkler system installed in your home as added protection in case of a fire, or you own a commercial building and need one installed, you can hire a plumber who is specially trained to install a fire sprinkler system.

This type of sprinkler system becomes activated when smoke is detected or the room reaches a certain temperature. According to the National Fire Protection Association, fire sprinkler systems reduced fatalities caused by home fires by 82%.

Water Filtration Installation

You might think that worrying about the safety of drinking water is something that only happens in third-world countries. However, according to recent reports, 63 million people in the United States have been exposed to unsafe drinking water in the last ten years.

Americans who don't trust that the water that comes from their tap is safe to drink might opt for drinking bottled water. This can get expensive, plus all those empty water bottles aren't good for the environment. A great solution to this problem is getting a water filtration system installed in your home, which is another kind of job that plumbers do.

Heating Repair

If you have problem with your heating system in your home or commercial building, you might think you need to call an electrician. However, your local plumbing company should also be able to handle any heating problems you might be having. Some of the most common types of heating repairs that plumbers are qualified to do include:

  • Furnaces that are cycling on and off
  • Heating systems that aren't working at all
  • Furnaces that blow out cold air instead of hot air
  • There are hot and cold spots throughout your home
  • Loud noises coming from your heating system
  • The fan or blower in your furnace runs continuously

If you notice your energy bills have been increasing lately, a plumber can help you detect the problem and ensure your heating system is working efficiently.

Whether you need a fire sprinkler or water purification system installed, or you are having problems with your heating system, a plumbing service can help.
