Maybe they will save you money on your water bill. Maybe they’ll lessen your chance at a burst pipe. They could even help in another way entirely. However it helps, calling in a plumber for one of these quick fixes will improve your home fast.
Replace inefficient appliances with new ones that waste less water.
According to the EPA, families can save thousands of gallons of water by replacing inefficient fixtures with eco-friendly models. A small, up-front investment can more than pay for itself within a few years. Professionals can replace virtually any plumbing fixture in your home very quickly and efficiently.
Clearing out slow moving drains.
Drains that take too long to clear are an annoyance to anyone that has them in their home. Slow drains are caused by things like hair, food waste, or general trash like paper towels and wipes. Luckily, pros can clear out drain problems quickly by drain cleaning.
To prevent drain problems from happening in the first place, learn to be careful about what goes down your drain. You could also learn to install drain guards in your kitchen and bathroom sinks.
Adjusting problematic water pressure.
No one should have to deal with low water pressure. It can ruin the otherwise pleasant experience of a hot daily shower. Water pressure can be adjusted easily by a professional with a gauge and a few hours. If your low pressure is the result of a clog or leak, they can clear it out just as easily.
Clearing up a weeping water heater.
A water heater that appears to be “weeping” or “sweating” is a water heater that has a small, consistent leak. These types of leaks start small and often seem like an easy thing not to worry about. Unfortunately, that’s not true, because small leaks never stay small.
Water heater leaks usually happen at the joints where pipes connect. A plumber can easily find leaks, determine their cause, and fix them before they turns into more costly issues.
