Sign You Need to Call a Plumbing Contractor for Help

Seeking Plumber’s Help

So you think you have a plumbing problem but aren’t sure if you need to hire a professional plumber. If you’re wondering what signs to look for to ask for help from a plumbing contractor, a list of common plumbing issues to watch out for is provided below.

Water pressure is low to non-existent

When there is no water pressure in your plumbing, it can be very frustrating; and it usually indicates that there is a problem with the pipes. It could be a blockage, sediment buildup, or, worse, cracked or broken pipes in the system.

Your toilet is still overflowing

If your toilet is clogged and you can see a physical obstruction, this is usually simple to resolve. However, if there is nothing there and it continues to overflow, you may need to consult a plumber to assess the problem, especially if it occurs on a regular basis. There could be a problem with the drainage pipes, the toilet’s inner system, or a blockage that cannot be cleared by mere plunging.

The drains refuse to drain

A plunger, similar to a toilet plunger, can be used to remove obstructions from blocked drains. However, this method does not always work. Yes, you will need to call a plumber to clear whatever is clogging your drains. They have specialized tools, such as cameras, to use in pipes to determine what is clogging your drains.

Taps and faucets that are leaky

Even if you have a little knowledge about plumbing, you might still be able to fix some leaking taps yourself. However, if you have a hectic schedule, these leaks can go unnoticed for weeks, even months. Even if your tap only drips about 10 times per minute, you’ll end up paying for an extra 1900 liters of water per year.
