Why Hire A Professional To Install Your Dishwasher

Sometimes when a dishwashing machine is installed new connections must be made, or existing connections must be altered in some way to allow for a seamless problem free install. There are specific codes and regulations that must be adhered to when performing such plumbing installations. So when this is the case it is always a good idea to hire someone on that has the proper training and experience to get this work done properly. When new plumbing connections need to be made the last thing you want to do is to rely on someone with little or no experience. Proper installation of a dishwasher is not an area where you want to gamble on inexperienced craftsmanship.

Improperly installed dishwashers lead to leaking, wasted water, and in the worst cases water damage to the surrounding areas.

An improper waterline connection or drainage connection can take a while to make it known, during this period of time an improperly installed dishwasher can slowly leak water. When this happens the problem will only be discovered when the leaky connection is a serious problem. The absolute best way to avoid water leaks caused by leaking dishwasher connections is to hire a Licensed Plumber.

Let’s say you have a dishwasher installed for very little money, then a problem develops down the road, it turns into a severe water damage issue and you try to make an insurance claim – or your dishwasher has developed a serious problem and you’d like to make a warranty claim. Well if you have code violations and an improperly installed dishwasher you can forget about your claim. You’ll be paying out of pocket to repair any related water damage.

any electrical or water damage resulting from an improper installation can and will cause you a headache later on. Did you know an Insurers can argue neglect on your part to avoid paying out for damage, whether the problem located in the connections to the dishwasher itself or elsewhere. Even if your dishwasher is still under warranty, they won’t install it for free, meaning you may not even solve the problem anyways. Getting a professional will keep you in the clear from an insurance standpoint, which is very important considering this is a machine that uses both power and water.

No matter the type or Model, getting a professional to install your new dishwasher is always a great idea. Hiring a Licensed Plumber to perform a dishwasher installation is a good idea that will put your mind at ease
