Common plumbing problems best left to the professionals

These days, everyone tries to limit contact with other people as much as possible. However, when it comes to plumbing, there are some jobs that you should leave to professionals. You may find many online tutorials on how to fix problems with your pipes, but not working with a professional can end up being more costly and more time-consuming. Here is a list of common plumbing problems that require professionals’ intervention.


Issues with hot water

Does your water heater stop heating water? Do you need to install or extend hot water lines for your new kitchen or bathroom? You might be tempted to embark on a DIY project, but the water heater and water lines are pretty complex. Damage to the heater, the integrated electrical or gas systems, or to the water lines could be catastrophic. A qualified plumber has the required experience and equipment for installing new hot water lines or fix other related problems.


Low water pressure

You should get a plumber because you most probably lack the expertise to identify the real cause of the loss in water pressure. Plus, a professional has specialized equipment for finding and fixing such issues, with minimal, if any, damage to your walls, floors, or existing pipelines.


Leaky pipes

While some leaks can be easy to detect, others are often hard to find and inspect. A professional plumber has all the needed tech to find the leaks, identify the leaks’ cause, and provide repair services. A plumbing company can also help you with the leaks’ consequences, such as mold, mildew, or damaged floors or walls. For instance, 1st Response Plumber also offers flood damage, cleaning and restoration services.


Serious clogs on your pipes

By using up-to-date plumbing techniques, such as a sewer camera inspection or hydro-jetting, professional plumbers can help you unblock and thoroughly clean your pipes. A camera can show exactly where the clog is on the pipeline, and hydro-jetting removes both the clog and any buildup or residue.


Upgrading or capital repairs for your plumbing system

If you want to upgrade your plumbing system or undertake extreme repairs, definitely you will need high-qualified professionals. These will make sure that the project is implemented properly, and they are also knowledgeable of any regulations your new plumbing system might need to follow.
