As a homeowner, you need to know how to react in the event you have a plumbing emergency. More likely than not, there will come a point where you need to call a licensed plumber to fix a plumbing issue inside of your home. We have compiled a brief list of a few of the most common plumbing problems that homeowners are faced with today.
We have all had to deal with a clogged sink at some point in our lives. In most cases, a clogged sink can be fixed with either a plunger or a drain snake. You want to stay away from drain cleaners because they contain harsh chemicals that can ruin your pipes. Also, they don’t always remove all of the trapped debris. If you are unable to fix your clogged sink with either a drain snake or a plunger, you should give a licensed plumber a call.
This is a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Not only is an overflowing toilet disgusting, but it can ruin your floors and cause other forms of water damage in your home. Fortunately, an overflowing toilet can be stopped quickly by turning off the valve on the feedline.
Leaky pipes can cause a homeowner all sorts of problems. A pipe leak can quickly cause water damage inside the home and lessen the water pressure as well.
Lack Of Hot Water
It is incredibly frustrating not to have access to hot water in your home. Most people cringe at the idea of taking a cold shower. If you have no hot water, it means there is likely an issue with your water heater. Your best course of action is to bring in an experienced plumber to take a look at your water heater.
