Signs That You Need to Call a Plumber

Let’s face it – we can all get a little lazy when it comes to calling a professional to help us with problems around the home. Whether you’re too busy, concerned that it will be too expensive or keep telling yourself ‘I’ll get around to fixing it myself’, the longer you leave most problems, the worse they get. This is particularly true of plumbing issues, and it’s not uncommon for us to see issues that could have been much smaller, cheaper and easier to fix if we were called months ago. So if you’re guilty of putting things off for longer than you should, keep reading to find out when it’s important to call a plumber as soon as possible.

When your water heater isn’t working properly

Unless you enjoy having cold showers, you want to get this looked at asap. Even if it seems to be working okay despite a few problems that keep cropping up, repairing them sooner rather than later lessens the chance of those issues becoming bigger and requiring more extensive work to repair them.

An issue with the flow of your water

If your water doesn’t seem to be flowing as normal, this can be indicative of a much larger problem, such as an issue with your main line. It’s important to call a professional in this situation so they can determine what’s wrong and come up with a way to restore your water to normal again.

Your toilet is clogged and a plunger isn’t doing the job

Don’t underestimate the severity of a clogged loo that a plunger can’t seem to fix. If your toilet has a major problem somewhere down the line, you will need to call in a professional to determine the correct cause of action. Attempting to fix a major issue like this yourself can damage your toilet and pipes, creating more issues on top of the one you already have.

Although it may be tempting, putting off organising professional repairs does more bad than good. Ultimately, calling a plumber will save you far more time, money and stress than avoiding repairs for weeks or months and allowing the problem to become worse.

From the first phone call Curran plumbing services were professional, showed up on time for scheduled quote , then me updated when the job was going to be completed . On the day of install all of the staff were well trained , well spoken and installed my new instantaneous gas hot water system like they were installing it in their own home . The quality in detail to make sure I was satisfied didn’t go unnoticed. At the end of the day I feel like I have gained a plumber for life . 100% recommend.
