Catching Plumbing Repair Needs Before It is Too Late

Catching Plumbing Repair Needs Before It is Too Late

Your plumbing is one of your single most used fixtures of the home. You may not realize it, but each time the toilet flushes, the sink is used, the faucet is turned on, or the shower is run, you’re making use of a very complex system of pipes hiding behind your walls and underneath your home. Unfortunately, most home and business owners don’t realize just how often they rely on smoothly run plumbing until a problem occurs, and they allow these minor repairs to turn into major issues. When you can catch minor plumbing hiccups before it’s too late, you’ll have your plumbing back up and running again more quickly and more affordably.

Plumbing is something that no untrained person should simply take on themselves. While it might be tempting to “fix” your plumbing on your own, especially if problems seem small, you could wind up doing more damage and subjecting yourself to a potentially hazardous situation.

Signs You Need To Call Your Plumbing Professional

There are a few signs that you can look for so you know it’s time to call your plumbing professional. Things to look out for that let you know your plumbing needs a little professional help are:

- Your drains are running slowly If you find that you’re wading in a puddle while you take a shower, or that your sink fills up before you can finish rinsing the dishes, your drain isn’t releasing water as it should. This typically points to a clogged drain pipe, which a professional plumbing can fix using a drain snake, small camera technology, and other tried and true techniques.

- Your water pressure is going down Perhaps your showers only took 10 minutes when you first moved into your home, but now they’re more like 20 or 25. If you’re standing there for too long simply to get the shampoo out from your hair, there could be a serious decline in your water pressure to blame. With low water pressure, you could be wasting unnecessary money on your water bills, and a professional can get to the bottom of more efficient water flow.

- Your toilet keeps running When you flush a toilet, it will run for a few minutes or so after the fact. However, if you walk by the bathroom hours later to hear the toilet still running, there is a big problem at hand. Typically, the seal that connects the toilet tank to the bowl has sprung a leak, but only a professional can accurately assess and remedy the problem.

  • Most of you know that I do not do online recommendations, but this is my one exception. If anyone in Seattle ever needs a plumber just call my friend Ambrose at 411 Plumber. He runs a great company and you will be calling Judy's friend, not some random plumber you find online.

  • My master bedroom shower backed up & didn't know what to do after trying to fixing it myself using drainomax. It didn't work. Contacted 411 Plumber, & they had me scheduled next day resolving my issue within less than an hour! During this appointment, I wasn't present at my property. My tenants were home at the time. However, not only notifying my tenants, Ambrose called me directly letting me know about the issue & what he did to resolve it!
