If your sewer line keeps backing up, you might have a problem with one of your plugs. One likely cause could be tree roots knocking your plugs out of alignment. While you can rent a sewer rodding machine to help you fix it, you could end up dealing great damage to your drain or sewer lines. Seek out the help of an emergency plumber instead. That way, if anything happens, they’ll be in a better position to know what to do.
Did your pipes freeze over again in the night? You might want to see if you can thaw out your frozen pipes. However, this does come with a few risks—mainly, your pipes might be more susceptible to freezing next time. Or the constant thawing out can weaken your pipes. Call in a plumber to deal with the pipes before they burst. If there’s already a leak, find out if you’re dealing with a cracked pipe or burst pipe and then put in that call to your plumber.
Massive Water Line Damage
Water line damage is often caused by frozen pipes. If the damage is massive, it’s a good idea to have a professional deal with the problem. Even if you know a thing or two about plumbing, repairing extensive damage could take up a lot of time and energy, not to mention skills. You’ll feel more secure and at peace if you get the help and assistance of a trained professional to handle the problem. That way, you won’t have to worry if you miss something or end up doing completely the wrong thing. You can leave it to the expert to figure it out and come back when the matter’s been resolved. You get less headaches and misery that way.
New Water Heater
If you’re installing a new water heater, call in an emergency plumber to put it in for you. That way, you know the installation will go off without a hitch. You could handily ask the plumber to dispose of your old one as well. No need to hook up the water heater on your own or toss out the old heater.
So anytime you find yourself dealing with a plumbing emergency, don’t try to deal with it on your own. Ask for the help of a professional instead.
