Some things you can fix yourself, but if...

Sometimes You Need A Pro

There are some things, however, that are surefire signs that it’s time to call in a pro. We’ve shared six of those signs below:

 

You Don't Have Any Water?

This one is pretty obvious, isn’t it? Seriously though, there is nothing that can stop you in your tracks faster than trying to turn on a tap and having nothing come out.

If you don’t have water, your problem could be anything from a major leak to a blocked water main. No matter what the problem is, it’s likely a big one that a pro should address quickly.

You Have Low Water Pressure?

Low water pressure means that something isn’t working properly within your plumbing. Sometimes low water pressure isn’t a huge problem, but that only happens when the pressure decrease is limited to a single fixture like a faucet.
If you have water pressure problems throughout your entire home, though, it probably means you’re experiencing a significant clog or leak. Have a pro address that problem immediately.

Your Toilet is Overflowing?

Toilets overflow sometimes–we know that. When it keeps overflowing over and over, however, it’s because because there’s a problem only a plumbing tech could solve.

Over plunging a toilet that doesn’t seem to budge can actually do damage to your toilet and your pipes. Your issue is likely a backup in the drain pipe itself, which is something you won’t be able to fix on your own. Don’t worry, a pro can clean a drain pipe in no time.

You Don't Have Hot Water?

There are a lot of ways to lose hot water. It’s possible your pilot light went out, or your home’s water heater tank isn’t big enough, a heating element is broken, or there’s a leak or crack in the water heater tank itself.
Whatever the issue may be, not having hot water is a big and inconvenient problem for everyone in your family.

Your Water Heater is Weeping

If your water heater is weeping, or sweating (like you see a water bottle do when it’s hot outside), it probably has a small and consistent leak.
Small leaks tend to be a precursor to bigger issues down the line and are a helpful sign that it’s time to call in a pro now as a precaution, instead of later as disaster relief.

You Smell Gas?

If you smell gas, evacuate the property. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. Call a plumber and your utility company once you’re outside and tell them what’s going on. They’ll shut off the gas and fix whatever is causing the leak in the first place.
