Services local plumbers can provide

Just a few services Your Local Plumber can provide

It goes without saying that if you own a home, you will at some point need the help of a plumber.  But do you know exactly what types of situations call for a plumber’s expertise, or what you should be able to expect when you hire a plumber?  If not, then you have come to the right place.  Here are some services your local plumber should be able to provide:

Drain cleaning.  If your drains are slow to let the water down, or not draining at all, then you can count on your local plumber to solve the problem fairly easily.  While it may be tempting to pour some drain cleaner down and avoid the service call, you should know that this can cause larger problems in the long run.  Therefore, you should call your plumber when you hear that all too-familiar gurgle or first see signs of a slowing drain.

Diagnose water heater problems.  There are a number of things that can go wrong with your water heater, from an extinguished pilot light to a faulty thermostat.  Your local plumber should be able to identify water heater problems and make most minor water heater repairs.

Fix any leaks.  Water leaks may start out small, but can lead to some major damage if left untreated.  Your plumber will be able to locate the source of water leaks and repair the causes.

Sewer cleaning.  Your indoor plumbing is connected to an outdoor drainage and sewer system.  This system can back up and flood your yard, and can make it impossible for you to flush your toilet or drain water inside the home.  In the case of a sewage system backup, you can call your local plumber to come out and clean and drain the sewage and drainage system.

Unfreeze frozen pipes.  If you don’t properly winterize your home (and sometimes even if you do), your water pipes can freeze and burst.  Your local plumber will be able to thaw your water pipes and repair the damage.

Repair or replace old piping.  Old, damaged, and corroded piping may cause a variety of problems, from contaminated water to water leaks.  A plumber will be able to make piping repairs, as well as completely replace piping systems with new piping.
