A time will come when you need a plumber. If previous plumbers left you unsatisfied, then you haven’t found the right one. Any plumber worth their reputation will be honest and dedicated to getting the job done for you, the right way, every time. Here’s a guide to hiring a team of plumbing experts when you need them most.
Drains Are Too Slow
Slow drains are clogged. Whenever a clog occurs, it can leave strong odors than linger until you address them. Leaving a blockage alone will only allow it to get bigger. That’s why you need to hire a plumber as soon as you suspect an obstruction from chicken bones or some other substance, such as congealed cooking grease, has stopped up your home’s drainage pipes.
Fluctuating Water Pressure Changes
Taking a warm shower on a frosty day is a delightful way to warm up, especially if you’ve caught a chill. Whenever the water pressure changes at random, it spoils the fun. The water could be getting stronger or weaker depending on if your neighbors are running water at the same time; this usually applies to rowhomes that are attached to one another.
The Faucets Constantly Drip
A dripping faucet that never stops is maddening. Plus, it’s like a toilet that is stuck on ghost-flushing mode – it’s a total waste of water! It doesn’t matter if the faucet belongs to the kitchen sink, a wet bar down in the basement, or the deep sink in your laundry room. All of them can develop leaks and other frustrating plumbing problems. Sometimes, you can try some DIY fixes that stop the issues in their tracks. The hitch is that these measures are temporary at best. You’re far better off calling a plumber to figure out what’s gone wrong!
You See Dirty Water
Let’s suppose that a water main break occurred due to the freezing temperatures. This can lead to unusual cloudy or muddy-looking water coming out of the faucets or showerheads. Water contamination is tougher to detect than you might think, though. Look for it to be a strange color, such as green or brown, and see if it carries a bad smell with it.
