You may be tempted to grab a plumber and wrench and dive right into that toilet clog or leaky pipe, but plumbing issues are rarely straightforward. Oftentimes in trying to fix a plumbing issue, we create even more problems than we had to begin with. Plumbing deals with water and sewage, so any mistakes you might make can become very messy, very fast. We’ll be discussing some common plumbing problems that you may want to call a professional plumber company for, so that you can stay warm and dry in the meantime.
No Running Water
If you have no running water in your home, or certain areas or faucets without running water, you may want to call in a professional to diagnose your situation. If you have no running water at all in your home, the problem may be more complex than what an online tutorial might cover, so it’s probably best to reach out to a plumber company with this expertise.
No Hot Water
Sometimes you may run out of hot water if your water heater tank is empty. In that case, you just need to wait for it to refill. If you have no hot water for extended periods, long after your hot water tank is full, this may be a situation that calls for a plumber company. More than likely this situation will relate back to your water heater, but you should call for professional expertise either way to find out for sure.
Low Water Pressure
If your running water has been slowed to a drip, or has even stopped completely, you will more than likely need to call a professional plumber company. If you only have low water pressure in one area of your home, then it could possibly be caused by a clog, but if you are unable to clear the clog yourself, it may be further down the drain into the plumbing system. At that point, it’s best to call a professional plumber company to diagnose the problem and find the best solution for you.
If your home has no water pressure at any faucet, then that can be an indicator that something is wrong with your plumbing system. If that is the case, then you will want to contact a professional plumber to help you fix the problem.
Leaking Pipes or Faucets
Sometimes these leaks are a little more complex than simply tightening something up. If you’ve already tried to adjust your faucet or pipes on your own, and they still continue to leak, you will want to call a plumber company to diagnose the situation. If there is a crack in a pipe, or the plumbing was not installed properly, this can cause leaks that compound into bigger issues, if left unaddressed.
Backed Up Sewage
Sometimes when there is an issue with the neighborhood plumbing it can have an effect on your home’s plumbing as well. If you have sewage coming up through your drains, or even just a horrid, musty smell coming from drains or pipes, this can indicate a larger issue with the plumbing. A professional plumber company can send someone to diagnose your drains to determine if the situation involves more than just your home.
