If you are homeowner, then chances are at some point you may have to do, or have done some home improvement work. Simple things, such as unclogging a toilet and changing a light bulb, are second nature to you; however, there are some things a regular homeowner should be very careful attempting to repair, replace and install.

Two things that do not mix well in a home are electricity and water. Most of the plumbing in your home uses both electricity and water. The fixtures, toilets and sinks, do not, but the water heater and garbage disposals do use both electricity and water. Unless you are a qualified technician, it is not a wise decision for you to work on a garbage disposal.

It is safe to remove a foreign object or unstick a garbage disposal because each of these can be done with the power turned off at the switch. Repairing or replacing a garbage disposal, on the other hand, is a task best left to a certified, professional plumber.

A plumber will have the tools, parts, and especially the necessary training to safely remove, repair and replace a garbage disposal. It very well may be you could remove the garbage disposal, but do you have the correct tools and extra parts should either be needed? It is highly likely you do not and will have to leave your project sit while running to the store. This will cost you time, money and become more of a hassle than necessary; whereas, a plumber will have everything needed in the service truck. In the time it would take you to go to the store and return, the plumber will have the job completed, cleaned up and left for the next job.

A professional plumber is trained in working with electricity and water safely. A novice homeowner who attempts to work on a garbage disposal without taking steps to insure the electricity is turned off may get seriously injured or even killed from the combination of water and voltage. Water you can clearly see; electricity you cannot. It is not worth your life to try and save a few dollars from a service call. The smallest mistake can have dire consequences so call a plumber.

A plumber will be licensed, bonded and insured to work in your home. Should you attempt the work and have a catastrophic accident, it will be you on the hook for damages. A plumber will have liability insurance in the case of an accident, but the likelihood of that happening is minimal because of their training.
