Plumbing Dangers: The 3 Most Dangerous Household Plumbing Mistakes

You probably wouldn't think so but plumbing is a dangerous job. Trying to do it yourself when it comes to your plumbing typically isn't a good idea and can result in some pretty terrible mishaps. If you are having plumbing issues don't hesitate to call the professionals and let them do their job.

They can safely deal with whatever problem you're having with out endangering you or your family in the process. Let's go over some of the most dangerous plumbing mistakes so that you can be aware of what could go wrong when you try and preform work you're not qualified to do.

Electrocution

When you're messing around with your home's water supply there is always a chance that it could leak or spill onto the wiring in your home. While your home should be wired to make such instances unlikely it can still happen.

Even worse is when electricity gets into the water supply due to tinkering around. Turning on the faucet or taking a shower could give you or a family member a painful, or deadly, shock. Electricity and water don't mix, let your local plumbers take care of your plumbing issues instead of putting yourself and your family at risk.

Poisoning

One of the greatest hidden dangers of do-it-yourself plumbing is the fact that mixing the wrong chemicals together can produce deadly fumes that can cause permanent damage to your lungs or even kill you. Many household cleaners, particularly those used in plumbing, do not mix well and can cause major damage to your lungs or render you unconscious before you know it.

Professional plumbers are trained to know what chemicals to mix and which ones not to. Don't risk death by poison fumes by trying to handle these chemicals yourself during a complex plumbing job.

Irritation and Scarring

In addition to producing deadly fumes, many cleaning chemicals can cause serious irritation to your skin and even permanent scarring. Bleach, for example, is a powerful base which kills organic material (in other words, your cells) on contact.

Pouring bleach or other strong cleaners down a drain can sometimes cause a back flow which can scar your hands or spew up into your eyes, damaging them and maybe even blinding you. It's best to simply save yourself the trouble of having to worry about all of this by simply hiring your local plumbers to do the job they're trained for.

Don't get mixed up in a serious plumbing issue in your Temecula home. Call 24-7 Plumbing and Drain at (951) 338-9844, and have the professionals clean up that mess.
