Plumbing Problems: Knowing When To Call Your Plumber

We all associate a plumber for common plumbing problems like water leaks under the sink and drainage problems, but there are telltale signs when you need to call your emergency plumber.

Symptoms of Plumbing Problems

Water Bills Become Higher Than Usual

A higher water bill suggests burst water pipes or your toilet’s flush not working properly, causing toilet running all the time. Aside from burst water pipes that will obviously cause some puddles in your basement, floor, or seeping through the walls of your home, or a toilet running all the time.

Slow Draining Toilets

This is a symptom that necessitates an emergency plumber.  This strongly suggests there is a clog along the lines. This might soon get to the point that your toilet gets fully clogged. Do not wait till your toilet gets totally clogged and not working.

Water Heater Problems

If your water heater is not working, this is also an issue of concern especially for safety that needs the attention of your emergency plumber.

Gas Leaks

Aside from usual plumbing problems, your plumber also takes care of your copper pipes and furnace connections. This is one of the most serious plumbing problems that require immediate attention.  This can pose health hazards when there is gas/carbon monoxide leak. Another gas line that needs checking for leaks is when you have built-in barbecues. This is a danger that might not be too obvious since it is in open air and leaks dissipate quickly. Hence, whether you smell a gas leak or not, have your plumber inspect this regularly.

Frozen Pipes

Extreme cold temperatures can cause water to stop running into your home due to frozen pipes.  This needs an emergency plumber to defrost the pipe as well as ensure that the frozen pipes do not crack or burst which causes an even bigger problem.
