Fixing their own plumbing system is an essential skill that every homeowner should have. However, there are certain situations that require the help of local plumbing services. The following are some of the situations where you should lay the pipe wrench down and give your plumber a call:
A running toilet can potentially waste hundreds of gallons of water a day if not fixed immediately. It is sometimes caused by a flapper that won’t form a seal properly, which is replaceable and won’t take much work. But more often than not, a running toilet is caused by problems in the plumbing, which has to be addressed by a professional. This is especially important if you haven’t fixed a running toilet before, as every hour that goes by can be wasteful.
Leaking pipes happen for a number of reasons. Pipes are mostly embedded in the walls, which makes them difficult to fix, and even more difficult to put back or restore. It’s safer and will take less effort for you if you simply call on a professional plumbing service to fix your leaking pipes.
Locating the source of the leak isn’t as easy when you have little visual cues, and you might find yourself tearing off a large portion of the wall before you find the source of the leak. Professionals, on the other hand, have the skills and equipment to find the source of the leak. While it will still likely involve tearing out a part of the wall, it will only be a small part that can be easily fixed.
Fixing a clogged drain is extremely frustrating. There are a number of home solutions available, from plungers to drain cleaners, but there are extreme cases where you will need to have a clog removed by a professional. Persistent clogs are common in homes where used cooking oil and other kinds of fat are routinely disposed of down the drain. This forms a deposit down a significant length of piping that can’t be cleared without professional equipment. A professional plumber will also give you advice on how to keep your drains clog-free.
