Our home plumbing systems are an essential part of your house, but because they are often overlooked, we tend to ignore small problems and only call a plumber once it gets worse or out of control.
You need to think of your plumbing system like it's human and not wait for the last possible second to seek help if there is a problem, because even a small leak can cause thousands of dollars in damages if left unfixed.
For those of you who are still unsure of whether you need to call your plumber, here is a list to show you when you need to call your plumber.
Like I mentioned above, leaks can become massive problems if left unchecked and can cause a lot of structural damage. You can spot a leak just by looking at your taps or pipes and be aware of damp spots in or around your bathroom, also don't be surprised if the leak spreads to rooms around the bathroom area.
Change in water pressure
This is a big thing during the winter months where pipes freeze during the night causing blockages and, in some cases, cracking in the pipes due to the ice expanding and contracting. So, during the upcoming cold months’ pay attention to any changes in your water pressure and call a plumber if you sense a change.
This is a very common problem and nothing to be embarrassed about but can cause several issues such as bad smells, so it's best to get them unblocked ASAP.
Most people wouldn't expect a plumbing service to deal with roof damage, but it's common practice so if you find a part of your roof that's damaged, or a gutter that has holes or other forms of damage then call your local plumber to come and fix it.
We often take our hot water for granted especially in the cold winter months when we need it the most, so identifying any problems with your water temperature and getting them assessed by a professional is so important. If there is a problem, then it's most likely your water heater which is essential for so many things around your home, so you should get the problem fixed as soon as possible.
