Sometimes we all need to be terribly honest with ourselves and know when things are outside our skill set. Let’s face it, plumbing isn’t something most of us understand or let alone want to have to try our hand at. It’s a thing of mystery that many feel is “best ignored” until you can’t anymore. Not the wisest mind set, but it is a wide spread one.
So you vs. your plumbing is often the simple scenario of “herself” beating the pipes with a wrench between explicatives or “himself” dealing with the frustrated spouse who just wants to cook in her kitchen or shower but neither is working. Do you see how plumbers can save relationships, sanity, and restore your before living practices back to perfect order? Every day heroes, that’s what plumbers are.
In an encounter with your plumbing, be it bursting pipes or water backed up in your tub, you really don’t want to jimmy rig it or hack it. Those kind of “fixes” are going to blow up in your face, maybe literally. So why is the plumbing always winning the war, leaving your best attempts only temporary or as constant reminders of how frustrating plumbing can be?
Plumbing can really be very simple to understand. If you are a self learner and take pride in fixing things yourself, you should take the time to invest in understanding a project before attempting it. However, if you are not the self diagnosing type and really just want to flush without watching the toilet bowl water level rise to a horrifying overflow, you need to let a plumber fight the war for you.

As a home owner, you are likely to do a little DIY plumbing here and there. Things like a clogged drain where you extract more hair than you thought possible or a leaky faucet that has dripped it’s last as far as you are concerned. Simple fixes, really. Alas, sometimes the needs of our home require the plumbing skill of a professional that goes beyond our novice understanding. Whether it’s a matter of starting to replace your toilet and realizing you are in over your head, or simply not having the confidence to complete a plumbing project or the necessary training to do so at such a large scale- that moment of realization does come “dawning” upon you. A trained, practiced, licensed plumber undergoes apprenticeships and takes legit exams before receiving their licensing; before stepping foot or boot in your home. With this kind of time tested skill set, you can trust a plumber with the really gnarly stuff that goes beyond the simple fixes.
At NIR Plumbing we cheer you on in all your DIY endeavors. We also want to see you come out victorious; winning the battle of the pipes! We are here for reinforcement when something proves to be outside your skill set. Our promise to you is that we are never beaten by the plumbing.
