For as often as we use them, bathrooms are a place that can cause us some serious anxiety once something goes wrong. Of course, there are some simple matters that we can try to undertake and resolve ourselves, but when it comes to ones that we can’t, a plumber can save the day.
If you’ve got plumbing issues in your bathroom, here are six reasons why you should call a plumber.
Clogged drains or toilets happen more often than we’d like them to. But the reality is for as often as they’re used, blockages are simply unavoidable. So when you notice that water beginning to rise or your drain is struggling to cope, a plumber should be the first person you call, especially if it’s a recurring problem.
It may seem insignificant, but after a few weeks (or even days) of having a leaky faucet, it can really take a toll on your monthly water bill. And aside from your growing bill and the irritating sound, that faucet could lead to more severe problems as that water can trickle and pool, causing water damage to your surrounding structures.
Similar to a leaky faucet, having a toilet that continues to run well after it’s been used, can also equate to some major problems and a hefty monthly bill for you to deal with. Avoid a spike in your water bill and have it fixed.
Broken handles can occur either from aggressive pressure or from someone simply pushing it too hard. And unfortunately once that happens, you’re left in an awkward situation with a toilet that can’t be flushed. So before those guests come for dinner and head to your washroom, call the plumber.
Low Water Pressure
If you notice that your toilet seems to have low water pressure each time that you flush, there could be a problem with your main water line. In this situation, you should call a plumber immediately as there could be some larger issues lingering with your plumbing.
If a foul, sewage-type of odour arises in your bathroom, there could be a backup in the sewage line or sump pump. No one wants to endure that odour, so always call a plumber if this emerges.
No matter what you may think is wrong with your plumbing, the fact of the matter is that a plumber will know for sure. They have the expertise and knowledge to repair your problems and let you get back to forgetting they ever existed. So whenever you have an issue, no matter how insignificant it may be, never hesitate to call a plumber to fix it.
