How Can I Check To See If I Have A Leak?
If you suspect there might be a leak in your home, but you don't see any signs of obvious water damage in the areas of your home you can observe, there's another way to check. Go out to your water meter and record the level. After doing so, make sure no one in your home uses any water for several hours, and go back to check the meter again. If the level has changed, it's a good indicator that you have a leak somewhere in your plumbing system and it's probably time to call in a professional plumbing expert. They can assess your home for leaks and make the proper repairs.
Should I Hire A Professional Plumber To Clear My Clogged Drain?
It depends on the severity of the issue in most instances. While smaller clogs are fairly easy to take care of on your own between a plunger, a bit of drain cleaner, and some work, this generally only solves the issue temporarily and does nothing to address the underlying issue. With a professional plumber on the job, you can rest assured that the underlying issue which caused the clog to form in the first place will be addressed, helping to keep your drains clean and clear in the future.
Why Does My Water Pressure Seem Lower Than Normal?
When you experience a sudden drop in water pressure anywhere in your home, it could be a sign that your pipes have sprung a leak somewhere. If that's the case, the best thing to do is call in a professional plumber right away to help you locate the source of the leak to fix it. Leaking pipes can cause massive damage in your home over time depending on their severity, cause annoying drops in water pressure throughout your house, and cause your water bill to skyrocket. If your water pressure seems to be getting worse, give our team of professionals a call today and let us find and correct the source of the issue.
Why Should I Hire A Licensed Plumber Instead Of DIY Plumbing Issues?
Your plumbing system is incredibly complex, and any kind of error made while enacting repairs can have major consequences for your home. As such, plumbing work of any kind, no matter how small it might be, should always be left in the hands of a professionally licensed plumber. Licensed plumbers must continually demonstrate their competence as installers of plumbing systems to an official executing board in order to attain their license. This accountability and the ability to demonstrate consistent levels of work make professional plumbers a much more reliable option when it comes to plumbing work of any kind.
