When to Call a Professional Plumber for Repair
There are some types of residential repairs that homeowners can guess their way through, but plumbing repair is not one of them. Unless a person has been trained as a plumber and spent extensive years in the field, it’s difficult to diagnose and fix most plumbing issues. In some cases, a plunger may be all it takes to restore the flow of water in a clogged sink or bathtub. Even then, all too often, it’s only a matter of time before the issue recurs. Other issues require more specialized equipment such as a motorized augur, hydro jetter, or sewer cameras.
There are several situations where it’s best to call a plumber immediately, including:
- No water at all
- Lack of hot water
- Leaking water heater
- Water is gurgling up
- Foul odors coming from drains
- Strange noises in the plumbing system
- Slow sink or bathroom drains
- Low water pressure
- Running toilets
- Clogged toilets
- Extra green grass
- Wet spots on the lawn
Arranging for an experienced plumber to come over to fix any plumbing issue that’s occurring is the sure way to know that the problem will be successfully dealt with right away.
What Causes Gurgling Pipes?
Hearing a gurgling noise after using a faucet or flushing a toilet is a clear sign that something is wrong with a plumbing system. Typically, this type of issue is due to a blockage within the drain lines. The other common cause is a blocked vent pipe. In either case, water or air is prevented from flowing freely through the pipes, resulting in trapped bubbles, which produce a gurgling sound. If the gurgling noise is isolated to one particular fixture, such as a bathroom sink, the issue is likely with the drain or P-Trap. When gurgling occurs in multiple fixtures, the issue probably stems from the main sewer line. A professional plumber can inspect the lines to locate the source and determine the best solution.
