A DIY approach is a great way to solve many plumbing problems, but even handy homeowners should put down their toolbox and contact a professional plumber if they come across one of these four problems.
If you are planning a bathroom remodel, it is always recommended to keep your existing plumbing system in tact and focus on replacing your fixtures instead of relocating them. However, if you feel that modifying your plumbing system is necessary, make sure the job is done correctly by using a licensed plumber.
Frozen pipes are a common occurrence during the winter months if you live in a cold climate. Frozen pipes that are thawed too quickly can crack or burst, so it is best to leave this job to a trained professional.
Heavy-Duty Drain Clogs
Dealing with a clogged sink, shower, or toilet? If a plunger doesn’t work, don’t reach for the plumbing snake or bottle of Draino – contact your local plumber instead. Heavy-duty clogs such as these can be tricky to deal with, and one false move can lead to more problems down the road.
Water Heater Tank Sediment
Traditional water heaters need to be flushed out periodically – generally every year or two. As water from the outside enters your water heater, it brings with it minerals such as calcium carbonate. These minerals can accumulate in your tank as sediment, and need to be professionally removed to keep your water heater running like new.
