If you've ever had an issue with plumbing, whether a stopped up drain or a broken inlet pipe, you understand the urgency which accompanies a plumbing repair job. Even if the problem is temporarily contained, the meter which registers your water bill continues to run when there is a leak in your house. Even if you try to avoid the problem with regular inspections and routine maintenance, eventually you are going to have an unexpected plumbing issue. You can trust you'll be glad when that day comes that plumbers are experienced and knowledgeable in providing emergency plumbing service.
Clogged Drains and Pipes
A clogged drain may not seem like an immediate, direct emergency, until you have to take a shower with hair and water filling up around your ankles because the shower doesn't drain properly. Just as bad is when you try to brush your teeth while your spouse or children have left hand wash soap and water which lays in the bottom of the sink. Although you can postpone a clogged pipe until you get home from work later in the afternoon, it is the sort of problem which needs to be attended to immediately.
A leaky faucet may not seem as disgusting as a clogged drain, but it will make you sick when you see the water bill. Even a small drip adds up to gallons over the course of a month. It may seem like a minor nuisance while it's dripping, but a leaking faucet or toilet needs to be repaired immediately. The problem is especially exaggerated if you live in an area prone to drought, but wasting water is not an acceptable practice anywhere in the country with the modern knowledge of the importance of water conservation.
Poor Water Pressure
The issue of having low water pressure is overlooked more than any other plumbing problem because people tend to assume, “that's just the way it is.” However, that's not true. Low water pressure is the symptom of a much larger problem that has nothing to do with city, county, or well water supply. If you have low water pressure you most likely have a leaking pipe somewhere within your system inside or house or in the main line from your water source to your house. Low water pressure is an issue you need to address and resolve before the underlying issue becomes a much bigger problem.
