5 Typical Jobs a Plumber Gets Called Out to Do

There are certain problems that people can run into that should always be left to a professional plumber. Many people will try to tackle these problems themselves and attempt to fix their plumbing issues on a budget. This can cause more problems than it is worth, and will often lead to much greater costs in the long run. The small price of hiring a professional plumber is certainly a recommended investment for people who have problems.

Frozen Pipes

A frozen pipe can be very problematic. Sometimes a frozen pipe will lead to cracking and bursts. People who know, or suspect that they have frozen pipes, should always consult a professional to deal with the problem. It is important that the pipe is thawed efficiently prior to using it or trying to fix it. A plumber will know what steps to take in order to thaw the pipe and prevent it from getting damaged (Please Note: Horizon Services does not provide service to thaw a frozen pipe).

Sewer and Water Line Problems

The most common cause of drainage problems in sewer lines comes from tree roots eating into the line. Machines need to be rented in order to solve this problem; however these machines should always be operated by a professional plumber. This is because tree roots can cause a significant amount of damage to the pipe, which can be prevented if a plumber operates any machinery. For this reason, sewer line replacement should always be left to a professional.

Problems With The Main Home Water Line

When the main home water line is blocked then the toilet water can flow into the shower and bathtub. Repairing the main water line requires a large amount of specialist equipment which most people do not own. Although people can rent the equipment and perform the task themselves, they will often need to consult a professional plumber. The main home water line can be very difficult to fix, and without a professional the issue can be made much worse.

Low Water Pressure

There can be various reasons for having low water pressure in a household. The most common include problems with the city water supply and the water lines. Low water pressure can be a very difficult problem to troubleshoot. A professional plumber will be able to pinpoint the problem quickly and easily, which can save a lot of time and hassle. They will also be able to fix the problem without posing any danger to the main water lines.

No Hot Water

There can be a large number of different reasons for not being able to attain hot water. The only way for homeowners to visibly pinpoint the problem is if the water tank has a leak. Otherwise issues can be very difficult to trace. When this problem occurs a professional plumber should always be consulted. They will be able to find and fix hot water issues and make repairs without causing further damage.
