Three Times You Should Have Called a Plumber

It happens to all of us. We have a small plumbing “situation” that we feel we can handle on our own. Rather than calling the plumber to handle the issue, we just use whatever we have on-hand to take care of the problem. Here are a few common scenarios in which you really should have called the plumber:

  1. Clogged Drain – A clogged drain can happen any time and for any reason. Whether it was too much toilet paper down the toilet or there is food stuck in the kitchen sink, having drain cleaning chemicals on hand should solve the problem. Unfortunately, a clogged drain isn’t always a surface issue, and you may find yourself with a returning clog no matter what you do, and overuse of harsh chemicals can corrode your pipes. Your plumber will be able to check your pipes and ensure that you have clean and clear drains.
  2. DIY Bathroom Reno – While they make it look easy to change out your bathroom vanity on TV, the truth is that if you don’t know what you are doing, you could end up with a heap of problems. From making sure the faucet is properly sealed to avoiding a water leak at the wall connection, letting a plumber tackle this task is the first step in a successful bathroom renovation.
  3. Septic Solutions – Most people don’t want to deal with their septic system in any way, but occasionally there may be a backup that leads to risks inside your home. Rather than waiting to see what happens with your septic system, calling a professional plumber who handles septic issues will help you protect your home and avoid a big mess.
