4 Plumbing Tasks That Are Best Left to the Professionals, Kerrville, Texas

Many homeowners aren’t afraid to perform plumbing maintenance and repairs themselves. However, due to difficulty or safety, some jobs are too complex to attempt on your own. The staff at Hager Plumbing in Kerrville, TX, handles problems of all sizes. Here their team explains four jobs you should leave to the professionals.

4 Plumbing Tasks That Should Be Left to Professionals

1. Water Line Repairs

plumbingUnexplained increases in your water bill may be the result of leaks in your pipes. Since water pipes are mostly underground, it’s best to hire a professional to locate the leak. They have the equipment to find the culprit without digging up your entire yard and disturbing the landscaping of your property.

2. Gas Leaks

Gas leaks are difficult to detect because you can’t see them. Unfortunately, they can be very dangerous, even life-threatening. If you think you’ve smelled gas on your property, you should leave your home immediately and call emergency plumbing services to prevent any health issues. However, since most gas is toxic and flammable, attempting to fix the problem yourself could result in serious damage.

3. Sewer Problems

Not only is a clogged sewage system annoying to deal with, but it also causes unhygienic living conditions. An overflow of water from your bathtub or toilet is the first sign there is a backup in your sewer line. This situation requires the immediate assistance of a plumbing professional who is trained to deal with unsanitary conditions.

4. Drain Cleanings

Clogged drains are a common household occurrence, whether it happens in the bathtub or the kitchen sink. While there are some tasks you can do to prevent clogs, such as not pouring any non-liquids down the drain, a professional cleaning can prevent bigger problems down the road. This will ensure the issue is fixed and prevent future flooding in your home.
