Posted on 14th December 2018

When it comes to plumbing problems, small ones can be handled on your own but some issues should only be tackled by a plumbing professional. Here are some common signs that indicate to call a plumber instead of repairing it yourself:

The faucet drips continuously:

Most people ignore a leaky faucet because they think it is not causing any damage. But do you know a faucet that leaks one drip per second wastes approximately 3,000 gallons of water a year? This also increases your water bill by 10 percent. Call a plumber to fix the hidden plumbing issues instead of wasting all that water and cash.

The bathtub does not drain:

Call a professional plumber to clear the obstruction easily or when you first notice your tub draining slowly to ensure there is not a bigger problem lurking underneath.

The toilet stays clogged even after plunging it:

If the plunger is not helping unclog your toilet, you may have a plumbing emergency on your hands. A clogged toilet means you have a sewage line issue, which obviously requires a Commercial plumber help. Call a plumber that has the tools and expertise to immediately get your toilet working properly again rather than risk doing additional damage by trying to break up the clog on your own.
