Warning Signs That You Need an Emergency Plumber
You should be on the look-out for any early warning signs that you may need a plumber, early identification of pending problems can save you a lot of future stress and money. Plumbing problems can reveal themselves in many ways.
Sinks and Bathtubs Are Draining Slowly
Slowly draining sinks and bathtubs are caused by the build-up of clogs. These are formed when grease, hair, and other materials stick to the inside of pipes. Minerals dissolved in hard water can also build up causing an insoluble scale to form.
It may seem a good idea to pour some chemicals down to remove the clogs, but this can be a bad idea. Often a clog may be located far away from the drain and the chemicals will not reach to have any effect. Overuse of harsh chemicals can also damage older pipework and joints and lead to leaks.
Toilets Keep Blocking
If you put anything other than human waste, water, toilet paper, or some gentle chemicals down a toilet, you may end up blocking it. Most people flush wet wipes and the like down toilets, but these are not easily dissolved in water and can build up causing blockages.
It is also tempting to put chemicals down the toilet to remove a blockage. Whatever you do, do not keep re-flushing the toilet, all you are likely to do is to create an overflow.
Remember the chemicals you poured down earlier, well they are likely to end up over your floor along with dangerous bacteria and germs. This is not a job you should attempt yourself, leave it to an emergency plumber from Metro who is equipped with special clothing to protect from these hazardous materials.
Sewer Lines Are Blocked
All your wastewater will normally flow into your sewer line and then into the main sewage network. Whatever mechanisms are clogging or blocking sinks and toilets will do the same to your sewer line.
If you see discolored water backing up into your home or smell sewage, your sewer line may be damaged or blocked. Sewage backing up into your will pose a serious health hazard, you need a plumber straight away.
Water Pooling Around Your Home
If you find water pooling around the outside of your house, you could have a slab leak. Another sign is if your garden is looking very green and is damp, even if it has not rained. The slab is your home’s concrete foundation.
If water or sewer lines leak or burst under the slab, then structural damage to your foundation will occur. You should not ignore this problem, the longer it goes on the greater the damage and repair bill will eventually be.
You definitely need an emergency plumber for this. But before you call us, we suggest that you turn off your water and electricity supply. This will reduce water damage and avoid any chance of electrocution.
If you do not know how to turn off your water and electricity supplies, it is probably a good idea to find out now. Having safely protected your home, call Metro plumbing.
Higher Than Expected Water Bills
Not all leaks can be easy to spot and could have been running for some time. An early sign of a leak can be a larger than expected water bill. Another sign is that your water meter is running when you have no appliances working.
Dampness or the smell of mold under carpets and sink cabinets is another tell-tale sign. Whatever the cause of the leak you need an emergency plumber to quickly determine the location and cause of the leak. The longer the leak is running the greater the water damage. All our plumbers carry sophisticated equipment to help in the detection of leaks.
Repairing and Replacing Pipes
If you live in an older house and you are experiencing constant leaking pipes, it may be time to think about replacing them. Older pipework may be badly corroded, if your water has an unpleasant taste it may be due to bits of rust entering your water. A Metro plumber can help you redesign a new plumbing network to suit the space you are remodeling.
Regular Maintenance Saves You Money
Metro plumbing strongly recommends that you have your plumbing system regularly serviced. This will enable the early detection of small clogs and blockages.
