There are multiple small plumbing tasks that many people like to try to tackle on their own, whether it be to save money, to feel accomplished, or just out of boredom. However, there are some plumbing tasks that you should always call in a professional to take care of for your safety and the safety of your family.
Sewage backup in your tub or toilet
While this may seem like a simple case of drain opener, sewage backups in your tub or toilet are actually a pretty good sign of a sewer main backup. The location of your backup could be anywhere from your home to the street, and a professional will have the tools on hand that the job needs to be completed.
Low Water Pressure
Again, this seems like a harmless matter for most homeowners to fix in a weekend. However, low water pressure could be a sign of a serious problem- a water main break. If you notice a considerable and sudden drop in your water pressure, contact a professional to examine the issue immediately. Calling a professional could prevent further and much more serious damage.
It’s important that you call for assistance as soon as you realize your pipes are frozen to prevent a pipe burst. The seals on plumbing pipes are more susceptible to cold than most of us realize, and waiting to call a repair technician can end up costing you exponentially more.
While many plumbing issues around your home are easily tackled by the average do-it-yourselfer, keep a vigil eye out for more serious underlying problems. When you think it’s time to call in a professional, call (310) 454-2010 for the professionals at Sunset West Plumbing, and get your repairs finished fast.
