Learning About Upkeep Requirements For Plumbing Systems Hello, my name is Lelani O’Malley. Welcome to my website about keeping your plumbing system in great shape. When I bought my first home, I was shocked to learn that it was built in the early 1900s. Another shocking discovery awaited as I learned that the plumbing system remained from its original build. Upon learning those facts, I dedicated my time to learning how to keep that system in great condition. I developed this website to bring that knowledge to you as well. I want to help all my readers maintain their existing plumbing system for years to come. Thank you for coming by.



Top 5 Reasons To Hire A Plumber

When there are issues around the house, most homeowners want to take it upon themselves to make the repairs. While this can work in many circumstances, there are some plumbing problems that are best repaired by a licensed plumber. Some situations where it is in your best interest to call a plumber include:

Toilet Is Clogged or Won't Flush

When someone experiences a toilet problem, the first instinct is typically to grab a plunger. While plungers are great at clearing small clogs, but if plunging a toilet doesn't work, you could have a much more serious problem. When a plunger is unable to clear a clog, there is a good chance that the clog has formed deep in your pipes or even the sewer main line. An experienced plumber will have the tools and expertise needed to successfully clear the pipe or your sewer main.

Problems with Water Flow

When a plumbing system is in good repair, water pressure should remain consistent. If you suddenly discover that all of the faucets in your home have low water pressure or inconsistent water pressure, you need a plumber. It is possible that your water supply line may have been damaged or you could have a broken pipe in your walls that needs immediate repair.

Constantly Dripping Faucet

A leaky faucet is more than just an annoyance-- when you ignore a leaky faucet you are literally pouring money down the drain. Even a small leak can result in thousands of gallons of wasted water over the course of a year. If you want to save money and be eco-friendly, make sure that you call a plumber to help you when you have a leaky faucet. 

Bathtub Clogs

A clogged bathtub drain can be a major inconvenience and make it difficult to take a shower. When it comes to clogged bathtub drains, it is in your best interest to take care of the problem sooner rather than later. A clog in the bathtub drain will just continue to grow in size until you have a total pipe blockage which can be expensive to have cleared. 

Broken Pipe

No one wants to walk into a room in their home and discover that a pipe has broken. But if this does happen, you need to be prepared. The first thing you should do is turn off your water main to stop the water from flowing. Then, immediately call a plumber to come fix the issue.
