No one wants to be stuck with an icky plumbing job in the middle of a great day. That, of course, is where plumbers come in – they’re trained professionals who are willing and able to help you out of whatever mess your drains or faucets decide to give you. One of the most important things about hiring a plumber is, well, to make sure you get the right one. You need to know whether or not your chosen plumber has an up-to-date plumbing license, if they have good references, etc. Once you’ve found the right plumber, you should be able to call on them for any variety of emergencies and issues.

Take a look at our list below for five problems that a good plumbing service can fix for you.

1. A Good Plumbing Service Will Diagnose And Fix Your Sewer System

Is the drain your basement laundry room suddenly backing up with all sorts of sewage? Raw sewage build-up and back-up is a serious health risk and not something you want to delay getting checked out. Provided you’ve already made sure your chosen plumbing service/plumber is suitably professional (plumbing license, references, experience) you need to call them as soon as possible. They can examine your sewage lines and then figure out/fix the problem.

2. A Good Plumbing Service Will Repair Leaky Drains And Pipes

Is there an almost constant dripping from your kitchen faucet? Has water damage appeared in your basement walls? Is the cupboard under your sink sopping wet? If your answer to any of those questions is ‘yes’, you need to contact a plumbing service right away. They’ll inspect your pipes, drains, and faucets to ascertain where leaks and breaks have happened and then repair whatever damage has been done.

3. A Good Plumbing Service Will Unclog Your Drains And Toilets

Most calls made to plumbing services are because of blocked sinks, showers, and toilets. Clogged drains are a semi-frequent, always annoying problem. While you, the homeowner, can often deal with the problem yourself, sometimes it’s simpler and safer to call in a trusted professional. A good plumber will have plenty of tools at their fingertips to make unplugging a sink or toilet that much easier – and quicker. You’ll have your bathroom or kitchen back to normal in no time!

4. A Good Plumbing Service Will Troubleshoot And Fix Your Garbage Disposal

Does your garbage disposal not work as well as it used to? Is it leaking or making weird noises? If so, don’t waste time in contacting a plumber! They will clean out the disposal, fix leaks, and repair any other damage they see.

5. A Good Plumbing Service Will Repair Your Water Heater

If you’ve been shivering through cool or cold showers (when you don’t want to) and if the water coming from your kitchen faucet is tepid at best, it’s probably time to get your water heater checked. Even though this isn’t strictly a plumbing problem, many plumbing services offer water heater repair options. You don’t have to suffer through a freezing shower for long when you get in touch with a good plumbing service.
