3 Reasons to Call a Plumber

woman-with-bucket-under-sinkIn the age of internet tutorials and product manuals easily found online, it is easy for homeowners to decide that they can handle just about any problem related to their homes and the systems within on their own. Unfortunately, this type of overconfidence often tends to result in bigger, more serious problems developing in the house. Sometimes, you really do have to step back, drop the tool bag, and call in the professionals.

The other issue at hand is the fact that sometimes even those seemingly simple tasks are more complicated than you may realize. If you believe that something is a quick fix, chances are that you will be hesitant to spend the money on professional services. When the problem only worsens or causes real damages, though, you’ll regret not calling in a qualified individual. Here are three instances in which you should call a professional plumber in Spring Hill, FL.

Leaky Faucets

One of the most common problems with any plumbing system is the leaky faucet. We’re guessing that this does not come as a surprise, and you have likely run into a leaky faucet at some point in your life. What did you do when you encountered a leaky faucet? Just ignore it? Try to position the faucet so that the drops at least went right into the drain, eliminating the annoying dripping sound?

If so, we suggest calling a professional to have the faucet repaired. This is generally a relatively easy job, though one that should be handled professionally so as to ensure that the faucet is not damaged further in the process. Considering that the “…average household’s leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year and ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day,” it only makes sense to eliminate them completely.

Sewer Odors

There are many reasons why you may notice sewer odors in your home. Maybe your sinks are just extremely dirty and could use a good scrubbing. You could have a dry p-trap, or maybe just a poorly ventilated bathroom. If the odor is pervasive throughout the house, though, or if you notice the sewer odor on your surrounding property, then you should definitely contact a trained professional–especially if you notice spongy ground! You could have a sewer line leak, and we don’t need to tell you that this can be a very unpleasant problem.

Clogged Drains

Okay, you may be thinking, this one that I can definitely handle on my own. Well, we’re sure that you can resolve most drain clogs to a certain degree–but can you resolve them entirely? Chemical drain cleaners are likely only going to clear out as much of the clog as is needed for the cleaner itself to get past. Hand augers may be a step up, but you could also wind up just drilling through the clog, leaving much behind.

When this happens, you are going to run into the same problems again before long. Professional plumbers have the training and experience they need to guarantee the job is done thoroughly. Stop wasting your time and your money, and hire professionals to get those pesky clogs out of your drains entirely.
