A lot of homeowners try to fix their plumbing problems on their own, and there are issues that you can do on your own. But there are some plumbing issues that you should leave to the professionals. We’ll look at three of them below.
- Your Pipe’s Knocking – If you’re hearing knocking in the pipes anytime you’re running water, you have a problem. There could be a few causes for this. But since you don’t know what it is, it’s a good idea to call your plumber.
- Water Pressure Is Falling – If your water pressure’s falling even when you’re running a shower or tap at full capacity, there’s an issue that you should examine. First, make sure there’s no clog. This can be done by filling a bag with vinegar and then tying it over your faucet for several hours. If that doesn’t do the trick, it’s a good idea to call your plumber.
- Continuous Dripping – If you’re finding that your shower or sink spits or bursts when you first turn them on, water pressure may be too high. However, if water’s dripping once the tap’s turned off, you may have a problem with the tap draining properly. If you don’t call your plumber, it can cause damage to the plumbing.
These are three signs that your plumbing needs help beyond what you can do on your own. Yes, calling a plumber may be expensive. However, if you let it go the problem can get worse and lead to a more expensive problem.
