When To Call A Plumber
Low Water Pressure Throughout The House:
This problem can be caused by a number of factors, such as obstructions (rust and/or debris) in the water lines; low water pressure from the city supply or well; or even poorly designed water line layout. A good plumber will be able to analyze the problem and determine the case.
- No Hot Water: Unless the water heat is leaking, it might be hard to determine the cause. Electric water heater problems include: Heating elements, circuit breakers or blown fuses, faulty thermostats or a bad overload switch. Gas water heater problems include: Thermocouple burners and igniters.
- Replacing A Water Heater: Think twice before attempting to replace a water heater by yourself! Remember, your plumber can carry the new one in, hook it up, make sure that everything is working properly and up to code and dispose of the old one.
- Sewer Line Clogs: If you can’t get the line to stop backing up, you probably have an obstruction in the line that runs out to your main sewer line. *Tree Roots Are Often The Cause* You can rent a big rooter machine, but they can damage the drain and/or sewer lines if not used properly. Call a plumber, if they get in trouble, they’ll make the necessary repairs.
- Extensive Water Line Damage: Repairing water line damage, which is can sometimes be caused by frozen pipes, can take up a lot of your valuable time and it’s back breaking work. It’s better to pay a plumber so that you can earn money at your regular job!
