There are plenty of home improvement jobs that are suitable DIY jobs such as painting a fence, staining a deck, and replacing the air filter in the HVAC unit. There are, however, other jobs that should be left to a professional. One of these jobs is plumbing jobs. There are certain plumbing repairs that should only be left to AA Plumbing.

Clogged Drains

A clogged drain can be very inconvenient. If the drain is partially clogged, it will take a long time for the water to go down the drain. If it is completely clogged, the water will sit in the sink or tub until the clog has been removed. Many homeowners will try to save money by using a liquid drain cleaner. Unfortunately, these products aren’t always effective and they can do damage the plumbing. If there is a complete clog and the water won’t go down, the liquid drain cleaner won’t help at all. A professional plumber will use a camera to get down into the pipes to see where the clog is located. This will help them get the clog out and make sure that the entire clog has been removed.

Running Toilet

Many homeowners will ignore their running toilet in an effort to save on the cost to hire a plumber. This is a mistake. On average, a running or a leaky toilet will waste about 6,000 gallons of water per month. Not only is this bad for the environment but it is also bad for the homeowner’s wallet. This much water wasted would cost the homeowner about $70 more per month on their water bill. If the leak is not fixed correctly, it can lead to further, more expensive problems. If a homeowner notices that they have a leaking or running toilet, they should contact a licensed plumber.

Frozen Pipes

When the temperature drops outside, the pipes inside can freeze. The ice in the pipes can cause them to expand and burst. When the water in the pipes melts, it can result in a flood in the home. If a homeowner notices that the water isn’t working when they turn it on and it is very cold outside, chances are the pipes have frozen and they should contact a licensed plumber immediately.

The plumbing in a person’s home is a very complex system. Because of this, all plumbing issues should be left to AA Plumbing. For more information, Click Here.
