How to Troubleshoot Common Plumbing Issues

Tips to Help You Find Out Whether You Need to Book a Professional Plumbing Repair or DIY Work Will Be Enough

Most homeowners tend to avoid booking professional plumbing repair services before their plumbing problems grow really big. This is probably due to the fact that they believe DIY work will save them a lot of money. In fact, in some cases it may even cost you more to fix the damage which you have done because poor or low-quality repair work won’t solve the problem. As a result, it will grow bigger, and respectively, will cost much more to get professionally repaired by an emergency team.

Today, a member of our handyman team will list some hints to help you understand when the time to book professional services has come:

  • kitchen sink plumbing repairRegularly check your water meter. In order to do this, you need to locate it first, then read the amount displayed, wait for an hour or two without using any water and reread it afterward. If there is a change in the numbers displayed on your meter, then you most definitely have a leak in your home and need to book a professional inspection in order to discover its source.
  • Solve slow drain problems. The first thing that you need to do when you notice such a problem is define how big it is. It may only affect your kitchen sink, or different fixtures around your home. In other words, if it is only your kitchen sink that drains slowly, the problem is most probably in the sink drain that is connected with the larger pipes or the trap line. If, on the other hand, it affects your bathroom as well, you will most probably have to contact a plumbing repair specialist and get it inspected.
  • Even if your pipelines are not clogged, use unclogging chemicals once every 2-3 months. This won’t solve major problems with your drainage but can at least help you clean most of the debris, soap scum, and hair that may be trapped there.
