Most people take their plumbing for granted. As long as there is hot water flowing from the faucets, and it is flowing down the drain, you do not give your plumbing a second thought. It is not until your plumbing is causing an issue that you think about your plumbing. There are several plumbing problems that can cause great inconvenience, however, can be fixed by an experienced plumber in Highland Park Il.
A leaky faucet can be a nuisance. Hearing the “drip, drip, drip”, sound, can be annoying, however, many people get used to it and let it go. While the leaky faucet may seem like it is nothing, it can be the sign of something more serious. When you hire a plumber to come and fix the leaky faucet, they will also find the root of the problem, and repair it. This will make the “drip, drip, drip”, sound, a thing of the past.
No Hot Water
There is nothing worse than trying to take a shower, and you have no hot water. Often, the reason for this is a faulty water heater. It takes a licensed plumber to inspect the water heater, diagnose the problem, and repair it. In some cases, the water heater may not be repairable, and may need to be replaced.
Clogged drains are one of the most common plumbing problems. Many people will go to their local hardware store and purchase a liquid drain cleaner to resolve the problem. If the clog is completely blocking the pipe, these drain cleaners will not work. If the drain cleaner does work, it is only a temporary fix. Over time, the clog will become large enough to obstruct the pipe completely again. These products can also cause damage to the pipes. The best thing that you can do in case of a clogged drain is contact a licensed plumber.
If your pipes freeze, they are at risk of bursting. A burst pipe can cause a very serious flood in the home. A plumber can come in, and either defrost the pipes or replace the frozen area of piping, preventing a potential flood.
