Regular Maintenance Will Save You Money

My Professional Plumber strongly recommends that you have your plumbing system regularly checked and serviced. This will help identify and fix a small problem before they become major ones requiring a plumbing company. For example, early drain cleaning will remove small clogs before they grow larger and block your pipes.

Warning Signs You Should Be On the Lookout For

You should be on the lookout for any early warning signs before you need the services of a plumbing company, early detection of pending problems can save you a lot of future stress and money. Future plumbing problems may reveal themselves in the following ways.

Your Sinks and Bathtubs Are Draining Slowly.

This is a sign that you have clogs building up in your pipework. Clogs form when grease, hair, food, and other materials collect and harden on the inside of pipes. If neglected it will build up over time and eventually block the pipes. In areas of hard water, minerals dissolved in the water will add an insoluble scale to the problem.

In some cases, pouring some chemicals down the sink may remove some smaller clogs. We do not advise that you do this too often as these chemicals can corrode older pipework and joints and so cause a leak. The clog may also be located further along your pipework and so the chemicals may not even reach the clog. A drain cleaning service from My Professional Plumber is the only sure and safe way to remove clogs.

We have other suggestions; a few simple precautions will reduce the risk of clogs forming in the first place. Stop pouring any warm grease or food down the sink, dispose of it in the compost. Place hair traps over the plug holes on the bathtub and shower tray, this will reduce hair going into the pipes and forming clogs.

You Hear Gurgling Noises.

Air bubbles are created as water flows over a clog causing the gurgling sound you hear as the sink empties.

You Need to Keep Flushing the Toilet to Clear It.

Like any good plumbing company, we suggest that you only put water, human waste, toilet paper, or some gentle cleaners down a toilet. Most people are surprised when told not to flush wet wipes down a toilet. Like Kleenex, wet wipes are not designed to dissolve easily in water and if not flushed away properly they can cause blockages.

Pouring strong chemicals down the toilet may clear small blockages. But again, you run the risk that damage will be caused to older pipework. If the blockage were located far from the toilet these chemicals may not even reach it and have no effect.

People will often keep flushing the toilet to clear a blockage. Often this will only result in an overflow, with a mixture of human waste and maybe those chemicals you used earlier all over the floor. Cleaning up afterward is not a job you should tackle yourself, a technician from My Professional Plumber will be equipped with protective clothing to avoid contact with all those dangerous substances.

Discolored Water Is Backing Up Inside Your Home.

If you see discolored water backing up into your sink, bathtub, or toilet, you could have a serious problem on your hands. Your sewer line may be blocked or damaged. Your wastewater usually flows through your sewer line and then into the main sewage network. That same grease, hair, and wet wipes that cause blockages inside your home can cause the same problem to your sewer line. Without any means of escape, the wastewater has nowhere to go but back in your home.

Sewage backing up into your will pose a serious health hazard, you need the service of a quality plumbing company like MY Professional Plumbing straight away.

Burst Pipes

You need a plumbing company for this. But before you call us, we suggest that you turn off your main water and electricity supply to reduce any water damage and avoid any chance of electrocution. If you do not know how to turn off your main water and electricity supplies, it is perhaps a good idea to find out now, as any delay will cause further water damage.

The Water Flow Is Poor

Is your bath taking forever to fill up with water? There could be many reasons for this, ranging from a faulty water valve in your water heater to clogs forming in your pipes and slowing the flow of water. Only a skilled plumber from a reputable plumbing company like My Professional Plumber can quickly locate and correct the problem so you can start enjoying that hot bath again.
