Plumbing troubles can fall into a couple of different categories. There are the obvious “CALL THE PLUMBER NOW!” days and then there are the lower-case, “honey, I wonder if I should call a plumber?” days when you’re not so sure. Here are some tips to help you with those lower-case days before they turn into UPPERCASE ones.
Drip, Drip, Drip
A dripping faucet can be a minor annoyance, but it can also spell bigger problems. For starters, dripping water can lead to a lot of waste–as much as 3,000 gallons a year! Drips can also conceal bigger problems that a professional plumber can detect and correct. Don’t wait until damage becomes obvious. An experienced plumber can get that annoying drip, drip, drip under control for good.
I Knitted Four Scarves and a Hat Waiting for the Tub to Drain
A slow-draining tub is a real pain. Who has time for that? Aside from the inconvenience, what’s really going on down there? A professional plumber can take care of clogs before they grow to epic proportions. They can also detect more serious problems before real damage occurs. You can still enjoy knitting. You’ll just be able to do it while you’re watching your favorite movie, not waiting for the tub to drain
Global . . . Freezing?
Frozen pipes are no joke, and definitely not a job you’ll want to handle yourself. Frozen pipes can burst unexpectedly, sending cascades of icy water onto floors and cabinetry. A professional plumber can handle the job without the collateral damage you may experience if you try to go it alone. Save the house. Save the furniture. Save your marriage! Call the professionals, ASAP!
When You Gotta Go . . .
Routine toilet clogs are no big deal. That’s why God created the plunger, right? But clogs that won’t loosen or that keep coming back are best left to the professionals. Adding chemicals just adds to the soup, and you could damage porcelain with sustained efforts to loosen the clog. It’s also possible a sewer line problem is lurking down there somewhere. Better to find out now before it gets worse. And when it comes to toilets, nobody wants to know what worse looks like!Plumbing issues happen to the best of homes and the best of homeowners.
