When to Hire a Plumber
Overlooking a plumbing issue for too long can potentially cause serious ramifications to your wallet and to your home’s structure. Knowing when to hire a plumber can alleviate a substantial amount of headache in the long run. Contact a Jolly Plumbing & Heating, Inc. at (719) 473-8545, if any of the following issues arise:
Toilets Backing Up into Tubs and Shower
This problem is most likely caused by stoppage in the main sewer line. Special knowledge and equipment is needed to properly correct the issue. Only a certified/licensed plumber can efficiently and effectively complete this task.
Low Water Pressure
Many factors contribute to creating low pressure throughout a home. Sometimes the cause is in the main line where an obstruction is not allowing the correct amount of water pressure through. Regardless of the issue, a plumber can identify the problem before the obstruction breaks the pipes—leaving you with an even bigger plumbing problem.
Replacing Hot Water Heater
A plumber’s skill and expertise is needed to make sure the new hot water heater is hooked up correctly. An incorrect installation can cause hazards to develop over time that may be unnoticeable. A plumber can properly install and dispose of the old water heater.
Fixture Replacements and Repairs
It may seem tempting to do these yourself, but fixture replacement and repairs require exact fittings and installation. If not done correctly, plumbing issues can develop over time and cause a significant amount of damage in the long run---for example, leaks.
Broken pipes will need to be replaced from time to time. A plumber can protect the integrity of your property by doing this job correctly. Hiring a plumber can prevent future damage caused by improper installation. These are not the only issues that may require an individual to contact a plumber. However, it is important to remember that trying to save a few bucks in the short run by “fixing” a plumbing problem yourself may increase the long-run expenditures caused by improper installation. Also, plumbers are able to see potential plumbing problems in the future. So, contact a certified plumber at Jolly Plumbing & Heating, Inc. when your next plumbing concern arises.
