When you own a residential or commercial property, sometimes there can be a plumbing issue. Some of these issues are minor such as a clogged toilet or a drain that doesn’t flow properly. These are things which can usually be fixed with a plunger or some drain cleaner. Or, you may have a drip that is constantly keeping you awake at night and needs the washer replaced. All these plumbing issues are more of an annoyance than anything and you can usually handle them yourself.
Too, if you do a routine inspection and catch the small problems before they become big ones, you can save yourself a lot of headaches. But what about the plumbing problems that start out as small but end up becoming big ones? Or if there is a plumbing emergency? At what point is DIY not the way to go but to call a professional plumber? Below are some common plumbing repair jobs and at what point you will need to call a professional plumber.
Whether you’re having a new house built from the ground up or adding onto an existing home, the new bathroom’s plumbing is extremely important. Bathrooms need some extra attention to the plumbing system because they have a toilet, sink/s, and a shower (and possibly a separate bathtub). Therefore a combination of fresh water, sewage, and wastewater need to be handled. Good attention to detail is imperative with any plumbing project.
Without drains in your sinks and bathtubs, you’d be bailing water out of your house with a bucket. Pipes and drains are exactly what we picture when we think of plumbing systems. They're complicated and well hidden within the walls and floors of your home, making diagnosis of potential problems a real pain. Professional plumbers use a host of sophisticated (and some not so sophisticated) means of figured out what the problem with your pipes is.
There's a few signs to watch for to give you some indication that it's time to have your pipes checked by a professional. Sometimes the offending problem is nothing a simple bottle of Drano can't fix but othertimes, the solution may involve entire sections of the plumbing replaced. Since drains are an important part of every home’s plumbing system, keeping them clean, clear and maintained is extremely important.
