Some days are better than others when starting a DIY plumbing project. Lowes and Home Depot would have you believe a weekend is the perfect time to dive into a project. However, that could not be further from the truth. Saturday and Sunday may be great days to get all of your shopping done, but not the right day to start your plumbing project.
The best days to tackle a plumbing DIY project are on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. The reason is quite simple if you think about it. Professional Plumbers generally work Monday through Friday anywhere from 7:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. If you choose to tackle a plumbing project on a Saturday or Sunday and get yourself into a situation where you need to call a professional plumber, you will find yourself in the uncomfortable position of requesting after hours service, which is generally more expensive than standard business hours. You also run the risk that a professional plumber will be unable to respond to your call in a timely manner.
Mondays and Fridays are also poor choices because the majority of professional plumbers are booked on these days. Mondays fill fast due to an overflow of work from the previous week and small problems that came up over the weekend. Fridays book fast because most people don’t want a small problem turn into a large problem over the weekend. They have procrastinated all week long, so the call ends up being called in on a Thursday and scheduled for Friday. Also, supply houses close at 5:00, so if you need a special part, you are out of luck on a late Friday afternoon.
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays are your best bet if you would like to tackle the problem yourself.
