Plumbing emergencies can strike without warning, and when they do you’ll be glad to have My Plumber Heating & Cooling on speed dial. Some plumbing problems can be easily with a few tools and a little determination, but others require the assistance of a professional.
Consider these, a few of the most common plumbing emergencies:
Fixing a leaky faucet can be as simple as replacing an O-ring, but fixing or replacing a leaking or burst pipe requires extensive knowledge, experience and tools rarely found in the average homeowner’s toolbox. The culprit — that pesky leaking pipe — can be difficult to locate, and is typically found hiding in a hard-to-get-to place, like behind a wall. Your Manassas VA plumber carries special tools designed to locate the source of the problem without doing undue damage to your walls.
Clogged toilets and drains
Plunge, flush, pray. Plunge, plunge, plunge. You’ve plunged and plunged, but the blockage clogging your drain or toilet is proving more persistent. It’s time to enlist the help of a licensed plumber. My Plumber Heating & Cooling’s expert technicians know just the way to quickly and effectively clear the lines.
Low water pressure
Water that trickles from a tap or faucet, instead of flowing freely, indicates low water pressure. Such an issue is sometimes related to the municipal water supply; a break in the main line can temporarily reduce your water pressure, but this is rare. Most commonly, low water pressure results from a build-up of deposits or sediment on faucet aerators. There are steps you can take to remedy this issue yourself: Remove aerators from faucets, and soak them in a vinegar solution overnight; this will typically dissolve the build-up, but if you still experience low water pressure, there could be a bigger, more complex issue. A sudden and significant reduction in water pressure warrants a call to a professional plumbing service that can quickly pinpoint the reason for the change.
Leaking water heater
A leaky water heater means trouble. Don’t pass GO. Don’t collect $200. Call My Plumber Heating & Cooling. Only experienced service providers should perform water heater repairs. Extensive knowledge and special tools are required to fix a myriad of issues that can plague an appliance like your water heater, and attempting to do so yourself — or ignoring the problem outright can result in higher-than-average energy, not to mention repair costs, and if you’re not careful, severe injury.
