Plumbing Repair and Professional Help
Chances are that as a homeowner you have probably already had your fair share of plumbing repair problems. These problems may have lead you to have your own tools on hand to help you handle any minor little plumbing mishaps – such as a clogged toilet that needed a little quality time with the plunger. Maybe you are pretty handy when it comes to DIY projects and you are able to tackle smaller repair jobs but the problem arises when you think you can fix something that actually needs a professional touch.
Some of the more common problems that could occur with your plumbing include slow drains or leaking toilets. The problem with a DIY job is that you may cause bigger problems at a later stage. And by then, calling out a professional could be extremely costly.
A fool proof way to avoid these costly repairs is to have regular maintenance scheduled. These could even be simple inspections to ensure that there are no hidden leaks (which could later cause extensive structural damage) and no issues with your pipes either. Any leakage that occurs will contribute to the growth of mold and other fungi, which can make you and your family very sick. Although you will encounter an occasional clog or leak in your plumbing, there are common issues which will occur no matter what you do.
On occasion you may have to deal with a leaky faucet. This can be one of the more annoying sounds you’ll hear as you try and sleep at night. The problem lies in the fact that a leaky faucet can and will cost you money as your water bill ekes higher with every drop. Plus, depending on the level of corrosion, you may need to call a professional plumber to fix the leaky faucet.
Another common problem you may have to deal with is low water pressure. This is when your water barely trickles from the tap when it should be flowing freely. If there is a build-up of mineral residue on the faucets, you will need to clean your aerators, but if that still doesn’t solve the problem, there may be a slightly more complicated issue which only a professional will be able to solve without causing further damage.
A leaky pipe is as bad as a leaky faucet. Chances are you won’t hear it but you will notice the nasty side-effects when reaching under your sink. This can be a pricey thing to fix, but depending on the severity of the leak; you may be able to fix it yourself. More often than not all you need to do is replace a joint or a fitting but remember it can get messy. Having a licensed plumber on hand may save you a lot of clean-up time and further costly repairs (if you don’t do it properly that is).
Clogged drains are one of the worst things you may have to deal with. A build-up of gunk will inhibit your water-flow and old faithful (the plunger) will have to make an appearance. Your plunger won’t always be able to fix the problem however and if you’re constantly dealing with a clogged pipe – It’s time to call in an expert.
