Every system and appliance in your home is going to require some maintenance and care as it ages. And your plumbing is no different. But where most homeowners get confused is which of these maintenance and repair tasks warrant a call to (214) 388-4525 to set up an appointment with a Metroplex Leak & Line licensed plumber. And the answer is pretty simple. Call (214) 388-4525 for any plumbing issue that you are not comfortable fixing or that you do not have time to address quickly. Fixing a small problem is far more affordable than waiting until the issue grows, and water damage repair costs also compound the expense. Some of the most common reasons our customer call Metroplex Leak & Line include:
Drips And Leaks
Make no mistake about it, any dripping faucet or fixture is a leak. And all water leaks waste a precious natural resource and your hard-earned money. So don’t overlook that faucet that drips for hours after you turn it off or the shower that drips all night and echoes through your silent home. Experts have done the long drawn out math for you and discovered that a fixture that drips three times per minute wastes over 150 gallons of water each year. So picture filling your bathtub five times each year for no reason and then watching that 150 gallons of water just run down the drain. That is what a single drip is wasting each year.
And as you can imagine, a leaking pipe is going to waste far more water than just a drip or three every minute. So as soon as you notice a drip at a pipe joint or fitting, a corroded pipe that is leaking or a tiny crack in a pipe, call in the pros from Metroplex Leak & Line or grab your tool belt and roll up your sleeves. Leaving any of these leaks unrepaired is only going to result in more wasted money and potentially expensive water damage repair.
Indoor toilets are a modern miracle that no one wants to live without. But did you know that your toilet could be wasting as much as 200 gallons of water each day if it is continually running or leaking? This is a waste of over six bathtubs full of water each day! In most cases, the issue is something straightforward to replace and very affordable. If you are handy with tools and willing to make a trip to the big box store, a YouTube video can walk you through the repair process for a worn-out flapper, seal, flapper chain, or toilet handle. But is you are not in a get your hands dirty mood, call (214) 388-4525, and a Metroplex Leak & Line pro will have the issue fixed for you quickly and affordably.
Low Water Pressure
In most cases, a drop in your water pressure is a signal that there is a reasonably significant issue at fault. And unless you are very knowledgeable about plumbing, you are going to want to pick up the phone and call in the pros. Older homes can suffer a drop in water pressure due to corrosion build up inside water lines, a hidden leak somewhere inside or under the house, or valves that are corroded or worn out. All of these issues occur slowly, and you might not notice the drop in water pressure until it becomes significant. But as soon as you do realize what has happened, call (214) 388-4525 before the issue becomes more severe and expensive to repair.
A slow clearing drain is another issue that usually starts slowly and then grows into a major catastrophe. You will find a drain that is not clearing as quickly as it once did. But most homeowners will overlook this warning and continue to stand in a shower that has an inch of dirty water in it. And the longer you ignore the issue, the worse it will become until the drainpipe is completely blocked. This is NOT the time to dump caustic chemicals into the drain in hopes that it will magically dissolve the clog for only a few dollars. This is the time to call (214) 388-4525 for a professional drain cleaning. If left uncleared, a clogged drain will result in a full blockage and dirty water backing up into your home.
When you experience any of these plumbing issues, you have two choices. You can grab your tools and try to figure out the problem. Or you can call (214) 388-4525 and know that a licensed professional plumber from Metroplex Leak & Line will arrive quickly and provide you with affordable repair options. The choice is yours. But remember that any small plumbing issue is far less expensive to correct than the larger issue it will become if you ignore the early warning signs.
