5 Signs It's Time to Call Your Plumber, Juneau, Alaska

A home's plumbing system is integral to everyone's daily routine. When something goes wrong, it can throw the entire day off. Instead of wasting time struggling to find the best DIY solution, if you're having certain plumbing problems, the best thing to do is hire a professional plumber.

Should you discover any of the following, don't hesitate to call your local plumber:

  • plumberClogs: As much as possible, rely on your plunger instead of chemical drain cleaners. Chemical cleaners are caustic and can damage the drain and pipes. If the clog persists, a plumber can use more effective tools and techniques to remove the problem.

  • Drips: The cause of a dripping faucet depends on its type. If your faucet utilizes washers or discs, these parts may be worn out and would need to be replaced. However, there's also a chance the valve seat has been damaged. If that's the case, call in a professional plumber; they have the tools to properly secure the correct fit.

  • Leaks: Like clogs, minor leaks can usually be fixed at home. Tightening the joint fittings of the pipes should do the job. If not, the issue may be corrosion or other physical damage. Have a plumber examine the situation.

  • Running Toilets: Sometimes this is due to a broken float or flapper valve, but it could be due to another component. Although there are toilet repair kits available in many home improvement stores, if you don't know exactly how everything comes together, leave it to a professional.

  • Frozen Pipes: Thawing frozen pipes requires the correct equipment as well as the correct techniques. Since freezing can also lead to cracking, it's better to have a professional plumber stop by and have a look.
