Whether you consider yourself as the Mr. or Ms. Do it all or a complete rookie when it comes to home repairs, it is a must to know when it is time to leave something for professional plumbing services to help you with your home problems. Most homeowners try to cut costs by trying to repair water issues on their own and end up causing a lot of trouble and that having said can double the cost for repairs in the end.  


Plumbing tends to be one of those things that you do not think about until such time that you have problems with your faucets. Average homeowners know their way around the plumbing and a bottle of drain cleaner, but that is only typical, and people really do not know much about plumbing – that is why it is a must to know the signs when you have to call a professional plumber.   

Signs you must know that it is the time to call a plumber to help you.  

Low water pressure  

One way to determine that you have a problem with your plumbing is when the water pressure is low, from your faucets to your showers, to your toilet flush. Low water pressure is caused by clogs, leaks or incorrectly sized pipes – but no matter the cause of your plumbing issue it is best to call a professional plumber to help you.  

Frozen pipes  

It may be very unusual in your area but, whether it happened to you or not, it is time that you call a plumber. Frozen pipes can easily be fussed out. The signs of this are the following: visible frost exposed odd clanking noises or smells. When the tap is one and the complete strike of water running anywhere in your home.  

Visible water  

Remember that not all visible water is bad – the water that is coming out of your shower, faucets is turning on right? But if those waters are coming from the base of your toilet for no reason, seeping up from your floor, or stains in the ceiling – then those signs are not good. When you see water on places that it shouldn’t be it is the right time to call a professional to help you locate the cause of those stains.  

Dripping faucets  

Did you know that dripping water is bad for the environment? Not only are dripping faucets are bad for it, but also dripping faucet are considered unnecessary expense on your water bill. Dripping faucets are commonly caused by the interior parts o the faucet.  

Water is not clear  

What homeowners want is clean water coming out from their faucets. But when the water running in your home is not clear then that is an indication of an underlying problem. For example, you have seen a brownish water from your faucet it is a sign that there is iron in your water. What you need to do is getting problem pipes replaced will solve this problem.  

Slow drains  

A slow drain is a sign that there is a clogged drain. If any drain is slow, the easiest way to fix it is by calling a professional plumber. Do not resort to using chemical drain cleaners because in many situations they can cause corrosion and damage to the pipe which will cost more to fix in the long run than just a basic drain cleaning.  

Do not worry, because you notice this signs, it doesn’t mean that it is the end of the world – that just means that you have to call a professional plumbing service.
