When Do You Need a Plumber?
If you can spot any early warning signs that you need plumbing work, it will save you a lot of future anxiety and the expense of an emergency plumbing service. Some signs you should be on the lookout for are:
Your Toilets and Sinks Keep Blocking
If you pour warm grease and food down your sink, you increase the risk of a clog forming. The grease and food will stick to the insides of the pipework and start to form a clog. The clog will grow over time and slowly restrict the flow of water through the pipes. Without remedial action, the pipes will become completely blocked.
Similarly, if you flush anything other than water, toilet paper, human waste, or gentle cleaners down the toilet you may cause a blockage. We often flush wet wipes, tissues, and other items down the toilet. This is a bad idea as these materials are not designed to easily dissolve in water. If not flushed away properly, they are often the cause of blockages.
Pouring harsh chemicals down a sink or toilet may help remove smaller clogs and blockages, but if you overuse use them, they can corrode older pipework and joints, and cause a leak. If you keep flushing a toilet to clear a blockage, you run the risk of it overflowing, creating a serious health problem. The best way to ensure the safe removal of any clogs or blockages is to have a cleaning service from Peach Plumbing & Drain.
Your Water Heater Is Broken
This is a common reason why people need an emergency plumber. These are many reasons why a water heater could break down and one of Peach Plumbing & Drain’s experienced plumbers can quickly locate and fix the problem.
We strongly advise all our customers to have your water heater regularly serviced at least once a year. This will save you money in the longer term as the water heater will be running more efficiently and reduce your energy bills. It will also give you peace of mind knowing that is less likely to break down and need an expensive repair. Did you know the average cost of a water heater repair can cost hundreds of dollars? Regular maintenance is a bargain compared to an emergency replacement.
If your water heater is over 10 years old and starting to give you more and more trouble, it may be time to consider a replacement. Your hot water needs have probably changed over the years since you first moved into your home. You may have a larger family; you probably have more water appliances. It is important to buy a correctly sized unit for your home. An undersized unit will only cause you endless frustration as it fails to deliver the amount of hot water you require. If you need help selecting the best water heater for your needs and budget, then please contact Peach Plumbing for assistance.
