Why do I need a plumber?
Plumbing is an essential feature in all homes that we often take for granted until there is an undiagnosed problem that invades our daily routine. Therefore, whether for repairs, yearly maintenance, or the installation of new faucets, showerheads, and other water features, a plumber is responsible for helping homeowners fix their water and sewage problems regardless of how minor or significant they may be.
Some of the most common repairs Waterloo plumbing services can help homeowners with include:
Clogged or slow drains
Clogging or slow drainage is caused by hair, dirt, and other debris that can collect in your drains over time. This will ultimately cause them to drain slowly or block entirely. When this happens, washing your hands and dishes, having a shower, and any other activity that requires using your faucets continuously for an extended period of time is hindered and can be annoying for homeowners.
Clogged toilets are, again, generally caused by hair, debris, and other non-dissolvable objects getting flushed repeatedly down your toilet. This can ultimately lead to slow drainage and potential flooding from your toilet bowl. Whether you have small children who flush things down the toilet that they shouldn’t or have made a few mistakes yourself, a clogged toilet can lead to other sewage problems and can contribute to uncomfortable living conditions for you and your family.
Leaky faucets and pipes
Leaky faucets and pipes happen as a result of damage to the seals located in your taps. When this occurs, you’ll likely hear dripping noises that can become annoying over time. It can also increase your monthly water bill, which will end up costing you more money over time if not fixed.
Changes in water pressure
Low water pressure can result from main water breaks or the buildup of minerals and other sediments found within unfiltered tap water over time. When this happens, using your water throughout your home is difficult and time-consuming.
Running toilets occurs when the parts within your toilet bowl suffer damage or are misplaced. When this happens, your toilet will use unnecessarily high amounts of water and increase your monthly water bill.
Breaks in your main water line
There are numerous reasons your main water line can break. This includes significant changes in the ground temperature surrounding your home, the age of your pipes, pipe corrosion, and the condition of the soil around your pipes. When this occurs, you risk causing further damage to your home, which can result in unexpected repair costs that could have otherwise been avoided.
On the other hand, when it comes to maintaining your water and sewage lines throughout your home, not every homeowner knows that minerals and sediments found in our water supply can create build-up along your pipes over time. As a result, your pipes can end up cracking or suffering further damage. Therefore, by investing in yearly maintenance, such as flushing out your water line, you can prevent this type of damage from happening to your home.
Moreover, if you’re looking to renovate your home, a plumber can help re-design your water line, install fixtures, and aid with other home improvement projects. Therefore, rather than doing it yourself and putting your home at risk of mistakes, hiring a plumber to oversee your renovation projects is always a good idea.
