There are some plumbing mishaps that you may feel you can take care of with a little DIY fix. However, if you don’t know what you’re doing then a jiggle of the toilet handle or finessing your way through a drain snake, may exacerbate the problem. It’s always a better bet to call your local plumber to prevent plumbing problems from becoming full-blown disasters.
Here are 5 signs it’s time to call Daigle Plumbing, Heating & Cooling!
1. Leaky Pipes
We experience all four seasons here in New England, which can wear down the metal in your pipes. Keep an eye out for wet spots on the ground or ceiling, this could drastically change the cost of fixing the leaking pipes and the amount of water damage they cause. Busted or leaky pipes are an essential repair that require the services of a plumber immediately.
2. Running Toilet
Did you know a running toilet can waste up to 26 gallons of water per day? Help the environment, lower your water bill, and fix the problem as soon as you can. Most of the time a running toilet can be an easy fix, but if you find that your toilet is still running, call plumber to put a stop to it.
3. No Hot Water
Are your showers not getting hot enough or not staying hot long enough, then it may be time for a water heater repair or replacement. A normal water heater’s life span is about 8-12 years, so if your water heater is nearing the end of its time it may need to be seen by a plumber. A plumber can help you pick the best model for the price, efficiency, and size of your home or help repair your current one.
4. Slow Draining
Do you find yourself wading in water in the shower or struggling to do dishes in a sink that won’t drain? You may have a drainage issue. Something is most likely causing your drain to clog, either visible or further down the pipe. A licensed and insured plumber has the proper training and materials to fix this kind of issue fast and efficiently.
5. Frozen Pipes
This early into fall it may seem too soon to worry about frozen pipes, however our harsh New England winters will roll around any day now and you don’t want to be caught off guard. If your pipes freeze in the dead of winter, you’ll need to call a plumber immediately. That’s why it’s essential you know the warning signs. If your water stops running, there are smells of sewage, or visible frost forms on exposed pipes, you should contact a plumber right away.
