The Top Eight Reasons to Call A Professional Plumber

Calling for Professional Plumbers

If you’re having a plumbing issue, you might be tempted to DIY it or consult YouTube for the answer to your problems. And if your case is minor, like hair clogging a drain, you might be able to solve it without incurring the cost of calling an emergency plumber. However, if you have a severe plumbing issue, trying to solve it without the guidance of a professional plumber might lead to more costly problems down the road.

Reaching out to an experienced plumber like Four Seasons Plumbing will prevent your plumbing issue from becoming an expensive disaster. 

Keep reading to see eight important reasons to call our professional plumbers serving Asheville, North Carolina, and nearby cities including Black Mountain, Hendersonville, and Weaverville.

You Have No Water

If you’ve paid your water bill, and yet when you turn the faucet, no stream of water follows, you certainly have a problem. A lack of potable or flowing water will make it challenging to prepare food and clean up afterward, much like a sewage backlog. 

Troubleshooting Tips: 

  • Check your other taps to see if it’s just one tap or a house-wide problem.
  • Reach out to neighbors to see if it’s affecting the whole neighborhood or your house. 
  • Locate your primary safety valve and double-check it. Water main issues are the most common reason homes are without running water. A water supply interruption may have been caused by an emergency shut-off valve mistakenly activated or a leaky valve.

In addition to those mentioned above, various system issues might lead to a water shortage in your house. With the assistance of a professional plumber, you can identify which of these problems is affecting your property.

  • It’s possible for silt to build up or corrosion to occur in an old tap connection. Usually, it’s best to get a new one, but sometimes it’s possible to clean and reconnect it.
  • Our experts can assist you in figuring out whether the materials you’re using need to be fixed because of age or use. For example, over time, low water pressure and even a lack of water may result from water lines that are either very old or were improperly sized during installation.
  • Pipes that are clogged or rusted: Clogs in pipes are often thought of as resulting from a buildup of muck and filth, and accumulated mineral deposits cause this particular blockage within your pipe. In Maryland, where I live, we have a problem with hard water that leaves behind many minerals. This might be the issue if your house needs a water supply.

Call Four Seasons Plumbing immediately if your running water has a funny color or odor.

You Have No Hot Water

Hot water is one of those things you don’t properly appreciate until it’s not there. If you’ve ever taken an ice-cold shower, you know just how crucial a water heater is to your comfort level. 

You can’t bathe or clean the dishes without a functioning water heater. Your water heater may be functioning well. But a leak in the hot water line coming from the water heater or the failure of a heat exchanger in a tankless system are other possibilities. Whether there is a leak or not, you do not want to put off fixing this.

You Have a Burst Pipe

When a pipe bursts, the choice to call a plumber immediately is a simple one to make. Large volumes of water may flood your house in the event of this common catastrophe, destroying your infrastructure and perhaps even your possessions. If you have a burst pipe, you must immediately hire an emergency 24-hour plumber to come and fix it, and we can help!

Turning off the main water supply and removing valuables from the flooded area will help you limit damage while you wait for the plumber to come. Water cleanup services and other repairs may be required after your plumber fixes your pipe, so keep that in mind.

Your Toilet Is Overflowing

If your toilet clog is fixable with a handy plunger, you will not need to call a plumber. However, if your clogged toilet isn’t responding to your attempts to plunge it, and the water and waste is flooding your bathroom, you should promptly call a plumber. The good news is that if you don’t flush the toilet again when the tank is empty, there won’t be any additional overflow. Yet, the harm cannot be undone at this point. So, if you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having an overflowing toilet and no amount of plunging seems to be doing the trick, please call us. We could use a drain snake or a hydro-jet to solve the problem.

You Have A Risk Of Flooding

The following are some examples of plumbing emergencies: floods brought on by a malfunctioning sump pump; a pipe that has burst; sewage that has backed up; and an ineffective water shut-off valve. Since the damage caused by floods may be both expensive to repair and a threat to people’s safety, it must be rectified as soon as humanly possible.

According to Angie’s List, the typical cost of hiring a professional to fix a burst pipe is under $1,000. However, the price might be lower if just a small section of pipe is replaced. The expensive cost of fixing burst or frozen pipes might rise considerably if you need to install new pipes underground or fix any water damage resulting from the pipe bursting or freezing.

Multiple Drains Are Clogged 

A blocked drain in one bathroom is not an emergency, but a clogged drain in every bathroom in the home is a plumbing emergency. A sewage backup is another significant plumbing disaster that may occur if obstructions in many drains are ignored.

Loss Of Water Pressure

A leak in your house is indicated by a gradual decrease in water pressure over time, whereas a rapid decrease in water pressure suggests a pipe break. Call our number immediately to prevent more water damage or wasted water!

Water is Leaking Into Your Slab Foundation

One of the sneakiest kinds of plumbing problems is a slab leak. They are also famously difficult to detect. Slab leaks aren’t often easy to discover, but you may have one if you have strange symptoms like hot or cold areas on the floor or the sound of flowing water under your feet.
