Is Mobile Home Plumbing Different?
The bottom line is…yes. Many plumbing companies do not specialize in mobile home plumbing. These are just a few of the reasons. The first reason is that the fittings and pipe on the drain and water lines are different. It is often difficult to find the right size pipe because of their irregular sizes. The parts may not be in stock so the plumber might have to order them. It is also difficult to access mobile home plumbing. You cannot cut through a wall like you would in a normal home if there is an obvious leak. Mobile homes have paneling that is difficult to remove in order to reach the leaking pipes. This can lead to higher plumbing repair costs. Access under mobile homes and plumbing is another problem that can make repairs dangerous and difficult. These dangers include:
- Many of these homes, especially older mobile homes, are not up to the same standards as regular homes. We have seen wiring exposed to the ground, for example. A plumber who is trying to repair the damage can be in grave danger. The area that we need to repair is often extremely wet. Electric and water don’t mix. This can be a dangerous job environment.
- Critters! Florida’s pests and animals don’t like heat. They seek out cool environments during the day. We’ve seen poisonous snakes and rodents, as well as rats, mice, raccoons and opossums. Another dangerous work environment is this.
These are the main reasons that plumbing companies don’t work with mobile homes. Clog Kings can help you with your mobile home plumbing needs. Call Clog Kings at (727)-479-4028.
