Do You Know When to Call a Professional Plumber?
No matter the age of your home, it’s easy to feel like there are always plumbing issues that need to be addressed. Some are minor and can be done right there by yourself with a little help from Google. Others, however, require you to call in a professional. In some cases, you may need to make that call urgently – in which case, we are proud to offer emergency plumbing services to our friends and neighbors throughout the Chicagoland area.
Whatever the case or your confidence level, though, make the call. If you’re looking at any type of plumbing problem in your home, at least speak with a pro to ensure you are on the right track. It is always better to be on the safe side, and a reputable plumber will be honest with you about whether you truly need their services or can fix the issue yourself.
Major Issues That Require a Plumber
Pipes Burst in the Home
When pipes burst in the home, you should always call a plumber out to assess the situation and repair the broken pipe as quickly as possible. The magnitude of this problem just can’t be overstated; broken pipes can do serious structural damage and require immediate attention. When someone calls Tritan Plumbing for broken pipes in the Chicago area, we take the call very seriously and offer rapid response to help minimize the consequences.
You Hear Water Running Somewhere
When water seems to be running from somewhere (especially inside of your walls), but you cannot put your finger on where, it is time to call a professional plumber. You need someone who has the skills and knowledge necessary to find the source of the problem and then repair it. This is essential, as this leaking water can mean something serious is happening or cause mold and mildew to grow inside the walls of the home.
The Toilet is Overflowing
Unclogging a toilet is easy, but what happens when it just keeps coming out and you cannot get the problem to stop? You need to call over someone with experience in these issues to take a look and give you further direction. A toilet that is unable to be unclogged with a plunger may need further action to remove whatever it is that it is in the way inside the pipes.
Low Water Pressure
When the water pressure is low and you’re trying to take a shower, the trickling coming from the shower head is not going to do it. There is something happening within the lines of the water system or with your water heater. It is best to call a plumber who can come out and evaluate this specific situation, as anything could be happening.
No Hot Water
The hot water heater might not be working at all, or might seem like it is working but there is absolutely no hot water. This is a trickier problem for people to find out an answer too, which is why a professional is oftentimes required. With their help, you can feel much more at ease about using their services since they can ensure that they will find the problem and let you know if the heater should be repaired or replaced.
