When you are having problems with your plumbing, it is hard to know when you should call a residential plumber for help. Like with most problems, plumbing issues do not go away if you ignore them. Most likely, the problem will get worse and it will cost you more money to fix it and more time to clean up the mess. Here are a few common plumbing problems that will let you know it is time to call a residential plumber:
- Your drains smell bad, are slow to drain, or are clogged. When you have problems with your drains, it is usually because a clog has formed or bacteria is growing in your pipes. A clog will prevent water from draining correctly, which can form a complete blockage that can create cracks in your pipes. A residential plumber can come and remove clogs and clean out your pipes so that water moves through properly and so that your pipes smell fresh and clean.
- Your water heater is leaking, making weird noises, or won’t heat up. Problems with your water heater are very common, especially if your water heater is over 10 years old. If you notice any leaks from the pipes, tank, or water pooling under the water heater, you should have it checked out. Also, if it makes banging or clunking noises when it is heating up, it probably means that there is sediment buildup in your water heater.
