The convenience of plumbing in good working order is a luxury we take for granted. We see our homes taps, drains, hot water system, gas appliances, toilets and it’s easy to assume how they operate is straight forward, however this is not the case. Beneath the surface are many facets that all must work together to ensure they function correctly, and it is often only when there is a plumbing problem, we understand their complexity.
Do you have a plumbing problem in your home? Read on to learn 5 reasons to call a plumber in the South West including:
- Hot Water Issues
- Blocked Drains
- Burst Water Pipe
- Blocked Toilet
- Gas Problem
Hot Water Issues
No-one likes a cold shower, so if your hot water isn’t hot you want the services of a plumber and quickly! Other common issues with hot water units can include no water pressure coming out of the hot water unit and water leaking from the hot water unit, both reasons to call in a professional.
If water is not freely flowing down your drains, it’s time to call a plumber. Common culprits when it comes to sewer or septic systems blocking include tree roots, foreign objects entering pipes and cracks or holes in pipes. Blocked drains can vary in severity from entire drainage systems being blocked to just a basin or shower.
Burst Water Pipe
A burst water pipe is not always visual, so can be difficult to detect. A higher than expected water bill can be a warning sign of a burst water pipe along with the sound of water running when no taps are on. Plumbers have leak detection hearing equipment and thermal cameras capable of detecting all leaks.
A toilet that won’t flush or is blocked can rapidly become an unpleasant problem. If your toilet is making strange noises, continues to make noise for longer than a few minutes after being flushed or you notice the cistern isn’t filling how it should, don’t delay calling a plumber.
When it comes to a gas problem, safety is the number one priority. If you have issues with your gas or can smell gas where you shouldn’t then call a plumber immediately. When dealing with inspecting and repairing gas appliances, there are strict rules and regulations that must be adhered to.
