3 Signs You Should be Calling a Plumber Immediately

by Boris Dzhingarov on Nov 18, 2018

In some cases, plumbing problems might seem minor, but they may be a symptom of something much more serious. As homeowners, we always try to minimize the costs and see what we can do ourselves. But plumbing is one of these areas where you can’t afford to make mistakes and one error could end up costing you much more later. This is why it’s always better to deal with professionals with any potentially serious plumbing issues. Here are three clear signs that you should be calling a plumber right away.

No Hot Water

While it’s totally normal to run out of hot water after everybody in the house is done with their morning shower, you shouldn’t constantly have to deal with hot water shortages or wait for hours for hot water to come back. Hot water issues could either be caused by something minor or a much deeper issue. In some cases, a pilot light may just have gone out, but in other cases, this may be a sign of a leak or another serious flaw.

In some cases, your water heater might just be too small for your household’s needs. A good plumber may be able to advise you on the right heater for you and help you install it. They might also help you deal with maintenance and troubleshooting minor issues as well.

If you think you might be dealing with a major problem, you should definitely consider calling a professional in, so they can check things like fuses, thermostats, igniters, pipes, heating elements, or any component that may be at the root of the dysfunction.

Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure is the perfect example of something that might seem like a minor nuisance but could indicate more serious problems with your plumbing system. Sometimes, just unclogging your aerator might do the trick. But in other cases, low water pressure could be caused by broken or cracked pipes, either under your home’s foundation or in the walls. These will not only affect water pressure but could lead to major structural issues with your home as well. That’s why you should call a qualified plumber as soon as you notice low-pressure problems, so the issue doesn’t escalate.

Drains won’t Work

This is another problem a lot of us may think we can deal with ourselves, and in some cases, we can. Clogged pipes might be caused by grease building up or other material clogging the pipes, like hair for instance. But you could also be having issues with a faulty piping system as well. A good plumber will be able to use advanced cameras and other tools to look at your plumbing system in depth and see if there might be problems that may cause long-term issues.

Conclusion

Usually, any plumbing issues should be left to professionals. Only a professional will be able to see the full scope of the problem and come up with a definitive solution to the issue.
