Plumbers In Longview, TX: 5 Reasons To Call A Plumber

Plumbers Longview TXPlumbers in Longview, TX know that calling them for help is the last thing you want to do, especially on weekends; but sometimes, plumbing problems happen that are out the control of the average homeowner – even one with some DIY experience.  If your pipes burst and you have water leaking from your ceiling, it’s a no-brainer that you need the help of a professional plumber; but do you know when to throw in the towel with ‘minor’ plumbing problems?  Here are 5 reasons you need to put down the plunger and pick up the phone:

1 – You suspect your pipes are frozen.
With winter coming, this could be an issue for you in the future.  If the temperature drops below freezing and you forget to leave faucets dripping overnight, you could wake up to no water flow.  Though you may think you can wait out a frozen pipe and hope that it thaws during the day, you’re actually playing Russian roulette with your plumbing.  Your frozen pipe can quickly turn into a burst pipe with serious water damage to your home as a result.  Call a plumber immediately if you’ve had a hard freeze and there’s no water coming out of your faucets.

2 – Your toilet is clogged and plunging it isn’t helping.
Plumbers in Longview, TX know all too well that this is the ultimate plumbing nightmare, especially for families with children, because a clogged toilet is an unusable toilet.  If you have a clogged toilet and plunging it to clear the clog isn’t working, you need the help of a plumbing expert who has the right tools to clear a clog that the average household plunger can’t budge.

3 – You have poor water pressure throughout your home.
From time-to-time, faucets can run slowly for one reason or another; but if you’re experiencing a persistent water pressure problem throughout your entire house, you could have a problem with a supply line that only a qualified plumber can find and fix.

4 – Your bathtub or shower won’t drain.
Removing hair and other debris when they’re easily reachable is the best thing you can do to keep your shower or tub drain from clogging.  If you let hair build up in the drain, the water back-up will only get worse until you get to a point where the shower or tub isn’t usable because it’s filled with standing water.  Call a professional plumber to fix the problem quickly.

5 – You have a faucet that won’t stop dripping.
Though a dripping faucet is something we’ve all lived with at one time or another and it likely won’t lead to a major plumbing disaster, it’s still a good idea to get help to stop the drip.  A faucet that drips once every second can waste up to 3,000 gallons of water a year, which means you’ll be paying for 3,000 gallons of water you’re not using.  If the problem is a simple as replacing a faucet and you feel you can handle the job, try to do it yourself.  If you don’t feel confident in your basic plumbing skills, call for help.
