When Do You Need to Hire a Plumber?
A fundamental function of us enjoying our homes is our plumbing system.
The plumbing in your property should be something that you can rely on and not even notice on a day to day basis.
But be it be a leaky faucet, a blocked toilet, or something more serious, there are times when all of us will need to make that call.
However, knowing the right time to hire a plumber isn’t as apparent as you would think. The smallest things could be a warning sign of something more sinister going on in your home.
Let us look at some examples of obvious and not so obvious signs to call a plumber.
When To Call A Plumber Right Away
One time when we need to hire a plumber is for flooding.
This is caused by old pipes, pipes freezing over, or poor drainage, among other things.
The first thing you should do is find your main water shut-off valve, normally located in your garage, basement, or near your water meter. Next, call an emergency plumber like Canyon Hills Plumbing.
Experiencing a sewage backflow issue is another area that you cannot ignore.
Sewage backflow has harmful microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses found in our sewage can be detrimental to you and your family’s health, especially when it backs up into our home. Don’t hesitate to call a plumber in this instance.
The final area is when you have no water on your property.
First, check all water outlets in the property to see if the problem is isolated to just one part of your home or the whole house. The next step is to speak to your neighbors.
If experiencing the same, most likely there is an issue with the city supply. If not, this means the water that should be going into your house is being diverted somewhere else, which could lead to major structural damage to your home.
In all these instances, Canyon Hills Plumbers have years of experience, meaning that we will be able to isolate the problem and prevent it from happening again.
3 Subtle Signs That Your House Is Telling You to Hire a Plumber
- One surprising warning sign can be a continuing increase in your water bill. If you notice that your consumption seems to have increased with no changes to your routine, chances are you may have a leak.
- Another sign would be low water pressure. Good first steps would be to check to see your main water valves are fully open. Next, cleaning your showerhead or checking to see if you have blocked aerators on your faucets could solve the problem. If the problem continues, the underlying issues could be serious. Pipes clogged with sediment, poor pipe design, and rust are all things that could lead to bigger problems.
- Finally, unusual noises in your home can be giving you signals that a professional is needed. Do you sometimes hear water going through your pipes when no one is using it? Or is it a gurgling sound when you use your shower sink or toilet? Again, your house is telling you that you may have a leak or a blocked drain deeper in your system.
Canyon Hills Plumbing can come and do a quick routine inspection in all these cases, which could save you up to thousands of dollars compared to if you were to ignore the issue.
