When a bottle of drain cleaner or a plunger can’t fix your plumbing problem, it’s time to call in the pros. Plumbing emergencies often happen suddenly. Here are a few scenarios that can lead to a plumbing catastrophe in your Sun City West, Arizona, home if you don’t act quickly.
Loss of Water Pressure
A lack of water pressure can mean a few different things have happened. There could be an underground water leak, or a leak in the walls somewhere inside your home. It’s always best to call a plumber to diagnose the issue. We’ll use advanced leak detection equipment to find the source of the leak, provide an estimate and with your approval, permanently fix it.
A Burst Pipe
When a water pipe bursts, your only recourse is to call the pros. A burst pipe can lead to your property being flooded. So before you are knee-deep in water, call in the cavalry. A burst pipe can sometimes be hard to locate as it could be below the house’s foundation or behind walls. Your local plumber will be able to locate the leak. In the meantime, turn off the main shutoff valve until the plumber arrives.
A Lack of Hot Water
Everyone looks forward to a hot shower on a cold day. So when you turn on the tap and cold water comes out, it’s a deflating feeling. No hot water usually means the water heater is on the blink. Water heaters are gas or electric powered. The problem could be minor like a faulty part. Worst case scenario, your water heater needs replacing. For safety reasons, don’t try to fix the problem yourself as this could lead to an injury or property damage. A plumbing technician knows how to inspect a water heater safely and can make the proper repairs.
