4 Signs It’s Time to Call a Plumber, Rochester, New York

While it may be tempting to see if you can handle a plumbing issue on your own, the licensed plumbers at Pride Plumbing of Rochester recommend against it. It's easy to botch a plumbing job or overlook crucial signs there is a serious, underlying issue that needs to be addressed, like corroding pipes. 

Here are four signs you should call a plumber: 

  • Your Faucet Keeps Dripping: You might not think a leaky faucet can waste a lot of water, but according to the EPA, one drip every second can add up to 3,000 gallons of water in one year. A plumber can remedy the leak and save you money on your next water bill.
  • Your Bathtub Drains Slowly: It's reasonable to believe your bathtub drains slowly because of a clog, but you should have a professional plumber confirm the theory. Slow drains and low water pressure could also indicate pipe corrosion; if this is the case, you'll want to replace those pipes before escaped water seeps into your home. Even if a clog is your only problem, a plumber has the tools to snake out the debris, whereas products like Drano can actually make the clog worse.
  • PlumberYour Pipes Are Frozen: If the pipes in your house freeze, it's important to call a plumber before a frozen pipe bursts or cracks, causing water damage. Frozen pipes are an urgent issue that must be addressed immediately; Pride Plumbing of Rochester offers same-day emergency plumbing services in Monroe County.
  • Your Toilet Is Clogged: When your toilet is clogged and your plunger can’t fix the issue, a plumber will check for sewage line issues. If you have sewage problems and notice a foul odor in your home or drainage field, this is a plumbing emergency, so don't wait to call.

No matter the dilemma, let the plumbing professionals at Pride Plumbing of Rochester provide you with top-quality service. Give them a call at (585) 272-7272 to receive an estimate, or visit their website to learn more about the plumbing services they offer in Monroe County, New York.
