From clogged drains to clogged toilets, there are many issues that can be solved without any need for plumbing services. However, some serious plumbing issues need professional help. Here is a list of the five such issues.
Extending Hot Water Lines
Extending hot water pipes is a difficult task to accomplish even if you have some basic plumbing knowledge. The task would include evaluating plumbing code, choosing the right pipes, and properly running these pipes through your water heater. Only a plumber can do this. Not only is DIY a waste of time, but also might lead to an unsafe situation with leaky hot water pipes.
Backed up Sewer
When the sewer backs up the chances are that there is an issue with the main line. You should call plumbing services immediately because there is nothing much you can do without the right tools and expertise.
Fixing Water Mains
If for some reason, you want to switch off the main water supply in your street, you would need permits, permission, and access. We advise you to ask the plumbing services to get it done so that you can stay away from legal hassles.
Although you can fix the dripping faucets easily with a new gasket, broken pipes is an issue on another level. Broken, frozen pipes, can cause a lot of damage to your house. We advise you to call the plumbing services immediately as this issue needs urgent attention.
Upgrading Sewage Pipes
If you are thinking of replacing or upgrading these pipes, it is advisable to call a plumber. It would need a lot of work as they’ll need to safely turn off the water, get the correct type of piping, and attach it properly to the drainage system on your street. The process can include some permits, and any code violation can result in heavy fines.
