It’s normal for people to assume they can fix a plumbing problem. There’s a sense of accomplishment when you do things yourself. But sometimes the problem can lead to something much larger if not properly handled in the beginning. Here are a few instances where it’s a good idea to call Dauenhauer immediately.
The Drain Doesn’t Drain
You broke out the Drano. So you plunged. You snaked. You may have even yelled at it. But nothing is working. It’s time to call in the professionals. If you keep at it, you may do more damage than what was originally the issue. Also, there could be a much larger issue at play here. You never know what’s happening underground. Your issue could be tree roots, or something even bigger – like a shift in the property. Regardless, you can feel proud that you tried your best. But now, it’s time to let Dauenhauer do their job.
Your Faucets Keep Dripping
That drip. The one. That. Won’t. Stop.
Slow drips while drive you and your wallet crazy. Each drop is another wasted penny. And those pennies do add up. Call a professional before any more money is thrown down the drain. It could be as simple as worn washer. But before you risk stripping the faucet, just ask for some help.
Your Toilet Won’t Flush
It’s the problem that just won’t go anywhere. It’s the toilet that won’t flush. You’ve checked the flapper. You’ve adjusted the chain. And you’ve inspected the tube. Now, it’s time to call in the big guns. Because once you have to go – you have to go. Call Dauenhauer before it gets to that point.
Your Pipes Keep Leaking
It just won’t stop leaking. You’ve wrapped that pipe with flex tape. You’ve applied a repair clamp. Joint fillers? Fitting compounds? Yep and yep. Guess what? It’s still leaking. This is typically the point where things start to go south and tempers get lost. That’s when you know it’s time to call an expert to stop that leak once and for all.
If you have any questions about inspections or checking your new home’s plumbing, call your local Louisville Dauenhauer, any hour.
