Tackling a significant project in your house without really knowing how to go about it can result in substantial problems. For example, addressing a plumbing issue in your home without the knowledge or right tools can lead to serious injury, expensive repairs, as well as damage to your property. You should definitely consider calling in a skilled local plumber like SPS Inner West if you experience any one of these problems mentioned here.
1. No Hot Water
A faulty water heater is most likely the cause if you experience lack of hot water. There could be many reasons why your water heater is faulty, including defective components or even a total breakdown. In such situations, it would be best to call in the services of a skilled and experienced plumber. The technician will carry out a proper diagnosis and perform the necessary repairs. Water heaters are generally gas-powered or electric, and working on them without the skill or experience can lead to serious physical injuries.
2. Burst Water Pipes
Water pipes can burst during winters as the frozen water expands and adds pressure on the pipe. Burst pipes are incredibly challenging to locate (when they are concealed behind walls or underground), and often result in flooding and expensive repairs. The damage can arise under the foundation, within the walls, and even in your yard.
Skilled plumbers have the skill to locate these leaks and carry out all necessary repairs or replacements. The absence of such expertise will aggravate the situation, causing more water to flood in. A licensed plumber will also specify whether your drywall, foundation, or flooring will require further repairs.
3. Low Water Pressure
Locating the cause of low water pressure in showers or sinks isn’t an easy task. Pipe obstructions, poor pipe design, or local water supply problems can all result in this problem. Plumbing experts can quickly figure out the cause of low water pressure. If you’re considering going the DIY route, remember that it will increase the damage to your sewer lines as well as your house.
4. Blockages in Pipes
Frequent and severe backups are two of the most significant indicators of blockage in your pipes. When non-flushable objects, tree roots, and sediment build-up settle in the pipes, they end up causing blockages. The sewer lines can get severely damaged if you use rodding equipment or harsh chemicals to clear them, and will eventually lead to expensive repairs.
A plumbing professional has the skills required as well the experience to tackle such jobs. You need the services of these experts if the sewer line is punctured or broken. Attempting to carry out a DIY project can result in costly repairs if you accidentally damage the connecting sewer line in your neighbourhood.
