While there is plenty to love about owning your own home, let’s be honest for a minute, it always seems like there is something in the house that needs to be addressed. Some problems are minor and are quick and simple fixes; the handle on that cabinet is a little loose, the closet door track in the bedroom needs to be readjusted. Some issues, however, are much more extreme and require and expert hand. This is often the case when it comes to your home’s plumbing; encountering a problem with the way the water runs in the shower or with how your toilet is flushing (or not flushing) is something every homeowner certainly hopes they don’t have to face.
If this sounds like you, you may be asking yourself, “Is this a problem I can resolve, or should a plumber take care of this for me?” Depending on your comfort level, even a minor problem with your home’s plumbing may not be something you want to tackle; after all, it can often be an unpleasant task at minimum or a dirty one.
If you are debating on when the time is right to hire a professional, follow these tips to help you decide when you need to call a plumber to resolve issues in your home.
Your Water Pressure is Low
Is that morning shower not quite as refreshing as it used to be due to low water pressure? Don’t wait to see if the problem will resolve itself; call a plumber right away. The Spruce suggests that not only can a plumbing professional quickly and easily diagnose the source of this problem, but fixing low water pressure on your own could have some serious and expensive consequences on your home’s plumbing system.
You Hear a Gurgle
If you turn on the water in your sink and a gurgling sound accompanies the water coming on, that, according to realtor.com, is usually the first sign of a drain that is clogged. Fix the problem now by calling a plumber before the issue becomes worse.
You Have Less Hot Water
If you have less hot water than normal, we’d have to assume that a failed water heater is to blame. But WHY your water heater is on the fritz is the exact reason why The Spruce says a plumber should be brought in to consult. Because water heaters operate on either a gas or electrical system, a DIY problem solver can at the very least, make mistakes in fixing the problem and, in more extreme cases, cause personal injury to themselves and others.
