Many homeowners think that most drain issues are easy to fix. Of course, they would be wrong. While anyone with a set of tools and basic plumbing knowledge can fix some problems, there are times when you need to leave the task to an expert.

It is also important to know that if you don’t know how to fix a problem, it’s a good idea to call a plumber. You don’t want to risk damage that will be costly to fix. Here are a few examples of when you really need to call a plumber.


If the bottle of Drano doesn’t solve your issue and your arms are getting tired of plunging, it’s time to throw the towel in and call your plumber. We will clean your drain the right way and have that debris removed so your drain is free and clear and we prevent the problem from recurring.


Repairing or replacing leaking pipes is a messy job and should be handled by someone who knows what they are doing. Unless, of course, you enjoy squeezing into small places and lying in puddles of water to reach the leaks.


While you can spend a day or two attempting to unclog a drain, flooding is a problem that needs to be dealt with right away.

The cause for a weak stream in your shower isn’t always easy to pinpoint. The reason your water pressure is low could be an obstructed pipe or it could be a city issue that has nothing to do with your plumbing. Either way, you should be calling a plumber for help. The problem could be in any of the pipes that run through your home. It could take you a long time to figure the problem out.


If you have no hot water, the likely culprit is your water heater. Now, your water heater could have any number of issues causing it not to properly work. The problem is that water heaters operate using gas and electric systems, which means if you make a mistake, it could wind up pretty bad. The last thing you want is to sustain an injury or damage your home because you didn’t know what you were doing.

Play it safe and call your plumber instead.
