Over the past few years, people have become more inclined to seek out DIY (do-it-yourself) solutions to everyday problems. And while the average homeowner can usually tackle basic plumbing issues (think clogged toilet), sometimes you’re better off hiring a professional. Here are five signs it’s time to call a plumber:
1. You can’t identify the problem
If you’re unable to pinpoint exactly what’s going on with your plumbing system, it’s time to call a plumber. Otherwise, you could end up spending money on DIY approaches, only to realize that you weren’t even on the right track. Save time and money by allowing the experts of Plumbing Medic to diagnose the problem.
2. A temporary fix has failed
Often times a DIY fix is also just a temporary fix. If you’ve tried to resolve a plumbing problem on your own, and it’s only gotten worse, then it’s time to call a plumber. Ignoring the issue isn’t going to fix anything; in fact, it could turn into a full-on disaster. Our skilled technicians employ the latest technology and products available to get the job done. Plus, we offer preventative maintenance services to ensure the resolution is a permanent one.
3. You need to modify hot water pipes
Hot water pipes run through copper pipes, which require the use of a blow torch. Chances are you don’t have experience in welding! You’re better off leaving jobs like this to the professionals. Otherwise, you could end up in a very wet and messy situation.
4. Your water pressure has unexpectedly decreased
If your home’s water pressure has decreased without warning, you might have a complicated problem that only a plumber will be able to identify and fix. A break in the mainline connecting your house to the municipal water supply is an emergency situation! Your home’s foundation could be compromised by the leak.
5. A plunger won’t fix your clogged drain
If your trusty plunger can’t remove a clog, then it’s time to call a plumber. Some homeowners turn to commercial drain cleaners, but they can actually damage your pipes. Plumbing Medic’s fully-trained technicians can get the job done safely and quickly.
