With San Francisco home ownership comes great responsibility. Part of that
responsibility just happens to be taking care of your plumbing system,
or at least knowing when to call in a professional to take care of something
that has gone wrong with your plumbing. The problem is that some homeowners
ignore red flags or put off calling in a pro for too long, so here are
some common issues that you should never ignore when it comes to calling
in a residential plumber.
What to Watch For
So what are some of the red flags you should be watching for and what plumbing
issues should you never ignore?
No one wants to deal with having frozen pipes but ignoring this will not
make the problem go away. This can cause major damage to the water line
if your pipes end up cracking or bursting. The first thing to do is to
try to avoid having your pipes freeze in the first place. But if this
should happen, you need to shut off the water supply at the main valve.
If there is no damage you can use a hair dryer to thaw out your pipes
but if you are not sure, or if there is damage, you should call in the pros.
Lack of Hot Water
Hot water is such as important part of your household and day to day routine
and we end up taking it for granted, until it’s not there. If you
suddenly do not have hot water, it could be a variety of thing from a
tripped circuit breaker to a major leak – so it is important to
call in the experts. The last thing you need to do is try to make it for
even a day without the hot water you need for comfort, sanitation and
If all of your plumbing is experiencing low pressure, you need to find
out why. You can experience a blockage anywhere in the system, including
outside your house. So it is important to let trained and experienced
professionals evaluate the problem for you.
