Each homeowner will at some time or another experience a plumbing issue that they simply can’t fix, some of which shouldn’t even be attempted because of the difficulty of the repairs as well as the potential of doing additional damage. While old washers and clogged toilets can usually be fixed without issue, there are several problems that you should leave to us whenever you encounter them.
Low Water Pressure
When you turn on your kitchen sink or your showerhead, the water should come out of the shower head or faucet at a brisk pace that allows you to finish your tasks with ease. If ever the water is only dripping out or you notice a substantial reduction from your usual water pressure, it’s important that you contact a plumber. While it’s possible that these issues are simply caused by a buildup of sediment in the aerator, a pipe could be leaking, which can easily be spotted and be effectively repaired by a professional plumber.
If the drain in your bathtub or sink isn’t draining water like it’s supposed to, the drain may be clogged, which can either be a partial or complete clog. When a drain cleaner or plunger is unable to correct the issue, it’s likely that you’re suffering from a complete clog, which simple solutions won’t be able to fix.
Leaky faucets are frustrating to listen to and can be particularly annoying when you take a look at your monthly water bill. If the washers have been dislodged or a component in the faucet has become corroded, a professional plumber like ours will be able to diagnose the issue and provide the correct fix. Leaky faucets can turn into gushing faucets if you try to fix the problem yourself.
