Imagine you’re lounging on the couch, relaxing with friends after a long day’s work. Soup’s bubbling on
the stove, almost ready for dinner.
All of a sudden, you hear the sound of spraying water and yelling in the kitchen. You leap from the couch
and rush to see what’s going on.
The kitchen faucet is broken and spraying water all over the place. Your friend is frantically trying to stop
the water, with no success.
What do you do?
Sadly, most people would panic.
They would have no idea what was wrong with the faucet, let alone how to fix it.
So they’d call a plumber and watch the kitchen flood until he shows up. Two hours later, and they’ve
spent hundreds of dollars on a plumber and will have to spend even more to repair the ruined floor.
Wouldn’t it be better to walk in the kitchen, know immediately what’s wrong with the faucet, and
quickly fix the problem?
Here at Danco, we give you the knowledge, skills and parts to do just that!

kitchen plumbing solutions.

4 Cost-Effective Benefits of DIY Kitchen Plumbing
Embracing the “Do-It-Yourself” spirit is one of the most cost-effective life-decisions you can make.
Here are 4 cost-effective benefits of learning DIY kitchen plumbing skills:
1. You Don’t Have to Pay for a Plumber: This one is obvious – if you can fix the problem yourself,
you only have to pay for tools and materials.
2. Avoid Being Over-Charged: Sometimes emergencies do occur, leaving you no choice but to call a
professional. With basic kitchen plumbing and repairs skills, however, you’ll know enough about
the problem to know when a dishonest plumber is trying to charge you extra.
3. Raise Home-Equity: Once you have the tools and the skills, don’t be surprised if you find yourself
fixing and upgrading everything you can get your hands on! Improving so many of your home’s
plumbing features will not only make everything look and function better, it will raise the value
of your home as well.
4. Spot Problems Before They Arise: Another benefit to learning DIY kitchen plumbing skills is the
ability to spot warning signs and solve small issues before they become home-wrecking crises.
Essential maintenance tasks like replacing failing rubber hoses and testing sump pumps will be a
breeze, and could save you hundreds of dollars in repairs.
“A man his only as good as his tools” – or so the old saying goes. For kitchen plumbing and repairs, the
parts you use are just as important, if not more important, than your tools.
