One of the inescapable responsibilities of being a homeowner is taking care of your plumbing system when it malfunctions. From leaky faucets to backed-up sewers, there are many different things that could go wrong with your plumbing system at any time. To help you sleep better at night, here are a few common signs that you should call a Phoenix plumbing company right away, before your plumbing system goes completely berserk:
If you are only able to get a very weak stream of water out of one or more of your faucets, you could have a major blockage in your pipes that should be cleared out immediately. If your pipes are blocked and you do not have the problem fixed, you could end up with limited access to water or a broken pipe. To avoid costly repairs down the road, you should always have a professional find out why your water pressure is low so that you can fix the problem early on.
If you are unable to get any water to flow through your faucets during the cold winter months, then you could be dealing with frozen pipes. Unfortunately, frozen pipes are often a ticking time bomb and they could burst or spring a leak at any moment. To keep this from happening, it is a good idea to keep your faucet just slightly turned on during the coldest winter nights to keep your pipes from freezing. If they still freeze despite your best efforts, it is time to call a plumber.
If one of the faucets in your home persistently drips, a plumber can take care of the problem so that you do not waste water or receive a shockingly high water bill.
If you notice any of these problems with your plumbing system, it is best to call a plumbing company before the problem becomes worse and more costly to fix. Call (602) 870-6840 today to speak with an expert at Donley Service Center about plumbing.
