When to call a plumber

One of the common decisions that homeowners / commercial business owners have asked when there is a plumbing problem is whether they try and fix it themselves or whether to call a professional. Trying to fix the problem by yourself without the expert knowledge of a plumbing professional may save you money but some plumbing problems require the attention of a professional plumber.

Damaged Sewer Line

Big problems and mess in your property can be caused by a damaged, blocked or broken sewer lines. Calling a professional plumber should be the first thing to do when you find that there is a sewer line problem. That’s when you’ll need to call a plumber.

Issues with the Water Heater

When you notice a leak around the tank and you don’t have hot water in your house, you should call a plumber to help you with the problem ASAP.

Low Water Pressure

Many reasons can be the cause of low water pressure. Some of those can include defective water heaters, blockage in the water lines and low pressure from the municipal supply. Even if you are in the position of locating the source of the low water pressure, the DIY approach is still a bad idea.

Leaky Pipes

Water leaks can occur in different places in your house like inside a vanity unit, in a drainpipe, the water heater, under a floor, behind a wall, the sewer line, or under the buildings foundations. Leaks come in various sizes and the causes of them can be various. If you decide to ignore a leak, the situation will get worse and bring severe property damages. Because of this reason, a call to a professional plumber is extremely important as a professional plumber will be able to locate the source of the problem and repair it accordingly.
