Blocked and Overflowing Toilets

We have all done it, who has not put wet wipes and Kleenex down a toilet. Items like these are not designed to dissolve easily in water and are the cause of many a blockage. Similarly putting sanitary towels and cat litter down a toilet is also a no-no. The only items that should go down the toilet are human waste, toilet paper, and gentle cleaning chemicals.

it may be tempting to put harsh chemicals down the toilet to remove any blockages, but we recommend that you don’t do this. If you overuse these chemicals, you can weaken the joints and seals around the pipes and cause a leak.

Using harsh chemicals will not remove any plastic toys or other objects that a child has flushed down the toilet. The blockage could be located further along with your plumbing system and so any chemicals will not reach.

When Do You Need a Plumber?

We also recommend that you do not keep re-flushing the toilet to remove any blockage. It could cause an overflow and flood your bathroom with harmful bacteria along with any chemicals you may have poured down the toilet. Call us straight away as we are equipped with protective clothing to keep us safe while cleaning the mess up.

Clogged Drains

A sure sign of clogs having formed in your pipework is water in your sink taking longer and longer to drain. Clogs form when there is a build-up of grease, food, hair, and other materials on the inside of pipes. Pouring warm grease down the sink is also a big no-no as it sticks to the inside of pipes as it cools.

Other materials will when stuck to the grease and buildup eventually completely block the pipe. Pouring chemical solutions down the sink can be effective but can cause damage to pipes if they are old or worn.

Blocked Sewer Line

As wastewater and toilet waste will all flow into the same sewer line, the same materials that can clog pipes or block toilets will do the same for sewer lines. If you have standing water in your sinks, bathtubs, and shower drain, you may have a blocked sewer line.

If discolored water is gurgling back up or you can smell sewage you need to call an emergency plumber immediately. Dangerous bacteria and viruses are entering your home creating a severe health risk.

Sewer lines could also have been damaged by tree roots, shifting ground, or simple wear and tear. This will cause blockages too, with the added danger of the sewage flowing into the ground around or under your house.

Burst Pipe

If you have a burst pipe the first thing you should do is turn off your water supply. Prompt action will save you from extensive water damage to your property and possessions and avoid the heartache of having to clean up the mess and replace priceless items. Another good idea is to switch off your electricity supply before anything else, you do not want to electrocute yourself or one of our plumbers!

If you do not know how to turn off your water and electricity supplies, it is probably a good idea to find out now. Having safely protected your home, call My Professional Plumber who is ready 24 hours a day to come to your aid.

Pools of Water Around Your Home

If you have pools of water around the perimeter of your house or your lawn is unusually green and damp you could have a slab leak. Most houses are now built on a concrete slab foundation and will have water and sewer lines underneath or running through the concrete. If any of these lines have started to leak, water will saturate the ground around the slab.

When the ground freezes or thaws it will alternatively expand and contract, putting extra pressure on the slab and causing it to crack. Water will enter these cracks and may seep to the top of the slab further damaging it on the way. You may notice that your floor has cracks in it, and it may also be damp.

The foundation has been compromised and may make your house structurally unsafe, causing it to collapse. You need to act quickly and call My Professional Plumber.

Low Water Pressure and Larger than Expected Water Bills

The most common cause of low water pressure is that there is a leak somewhere on your property. If your recent water bills have increased a lot, you probably leak somewhere.

Low water pressure could be due to faulty valves in a water heater, clogging, or corrosion in older pipes. Only an experienced plumber can quickly find the cause of the low pressure and carry out the correct repair.

Regular Maintenance

We strongly recommend that you have your plumbing system regularly maintained. This will catch any problems early and so prevent them from causing more serious problems later.
