No job is too small, and no question too simple, for your plumbing repairs. Many homeowners find their plumbing systems confusing, and that is okay. You know how to do your job, and we know how to do ours. We will be happy to answer your questions and take care of any necessary repairs.
Your plumbing system acts as your home’s circulatory system. It is made up of two main parts, or subsystems: one to bring fresh water in, another to take waste water out. Both can malfunction. Pipes, toilets, drains and fixtures can get clogged; they can also develop leaks.
While many plumbing problems are “simple” for plumbers, they are not for most homeowners. There are many questions professional plumbers commonly hear. Questions like,
What can I do to stop the drip, drip, dripping faucet driving me nuts?
Should my toilet be flushing itself every so often?
My pipes make a loud, rattling sound when I shut off the water; is that bad?
Why is my water pressure so weak?
What can I do about a leaking hot water heater?
Any of these problems can seem too small for you to want to call a plumber. But even seemingly small problems can be a symptom of a bigger problem. And a small problem will only get bigger if it is not properly repaired. Your fix may be as small as changing out a worn washer or adjusting the length of the chain in your toilet tank. It may be tightening brackets meant to hold your pipes firmly in place, or draining your plumbing system to install an air chamber.
There are plumbing issues homeowners can take care of themselves. To learn more about common plumbing problems and what you should do when you have one, read our “How Do I Know if I Need a Plumber?” post. When in doubt, call a plumber.
Sometimes, homeowners find themselves with a BIG plumbing problem that leaves no doubt that a professional plumber is necessary. If you find yourself with a flooded room or water gushing where it does not belong, it is important to stop the flow as quickly as possible. It is a good idea to know where all water shut-off valves are located in your plumbing system. If the source of the water is obvious and limited to a particular part of the system that can be turned off, turn off water to that area immediately. If not, stop the water to the entire house by turning off the main shut-off valve. After the water is shut off, or if you are unable to stop the flow, call a plumber!
