YOU HAVE LOW WATER PRESSURE
When your water doesn’t flow forcefully, it’s usually time to call a Green Apple plumber to look at the internal workings of your plumbing.
When it is a faucet in one bathroom, it could be something as simple as a clogged aerator. You can address this by unscrewing the aerator and cleaning out the sediment. This is usually done with a little scrubbing or a vinegar soak.
If cleaning out an aerator doesn’t do the trick or if the low pressure is in more than one sink, you may have a much more significant problem lurking beneath the surface. Low pressure is often related to cracked or broken pipes either in the walls or under the foundation of your home. These areas will leak every time you use any water in your home, creating a growing problem that can do major damage to your home.
If you’re experiencing low pressure that’s not located in a singular fixture, it’s time to call a Green Apple plumber and ask for immediate service.
YOUR DRAINS WON’T DRAIN
Clogs are common in plumbing, from tubs and toilets to faucets indoor and out. Some of these clogs can be undone with a plunger and a little muscle. But if you can’t unclog them after a little plunger work, or if there’s a clog that consistently backs up, you should call a plumber.
Plumbers can use special tools like cameras that can look deeper into pipes for something that may be causing a long-term problem. Hair, grease build-up, roots getting into underground systems and problems with your septic tank are a few possible issues.
Any repeat drain problem is worth a call because you might be facing a serious issue. Even if it’s something small such as a tub that clogs each time you give your dog a bath it can turn into a bigger concern if it happens repeatedly. You can perform remedies at home, but many times you’re simply delaying a problem or treating a symptom and allowing an underlying problem to fester.
YOUR FAUCETS WON’T STOP DRIPPING
If your shower is dripping only 10 times a minute, you’re paying for an additional 500 gallons of water each year
Maybe you’ve been planning to fix that dripping sink as soon as you have the time. Before you know it, months pass and the problem persists. Sometimes a drip can be a quick fix with a little tightening, some plumbers’ tape or a new bracket, but that’s not always the case. A steady drip may come from a crack in a pipe or an element that’s installed incorrectly. Pressure buildups or other concerns may also play a role.
For these small issues, it’s wise to call a Green Apple plumber when you can’t fix it or when you have a few things on your to-do list. Having a plumber check your leaks also gives you an opportunity to ask questions or receive suggestions for upcoming remodeling and other projects.
