Practicool wants you to know the most common reasons to call a plumber, so this way you can be confident when you call them that they can solve your issue. Here are a few reasons plumbing services are typically needed, this way by recognizing the problem early you can stop the damage before it starts.

Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure will cause it to be harder for you to get water out of your tap, and may be a sign of a few different things – debris buildup in pipes, problems with local municipal water supplies or a break in your main water line. If it’s simply debris causing blockages, removal and cleaning of faucets and shower heads sometimes clears up the issues. In some cases, further professional work will be needed. Practicool can review your pressure and work on solving your issue.

Dripping Faucets/Leaky Pipes

Not only can these be annoying based on sound and water pooling issues, problems with leaking pipes or faucets can lead to much larger concerns with water damage. If a pipe breaks and water is flooding your home, you know you need to call a plumber immediately. There are other times that may not be as apparent. It can be easy to ignore a leaky pipe, especially if the leak is small. It doesn’t seem like a big deal. But the truth is that any leaky pipe poses a risk because leaky pipes are more prone to burst. And, even if it doesn’t break, it will increase your water bill, and those costs can add up over time. If a pipe has burst, or if a leak is flooding, a plumber will know where to go to shut off your main water supply. They can quickly find where a leak originates, and they’ll know how to safely change the pipeline through the walls and ceilings of your home.

Running Toilet

If you hear water filling the tank even though no one has flushed the toilet, don’t just dismiss it as a random occurrence. It means the seal connecting the tank and the bowl isn’t working properly. Running toilets are the leading cause of high water bills, but Practicool can easily and quickly resolve the issue for you.

Slow Drain

A bathtub or shower should drain almost instantly. If your shower or bathtub takes a long time to drain, it may need more than a liquid solution that unclogs drains. Over time, hair and debris accumulate in bathroom drains. A long-term solution may require Practicool to discuss your options.

Short Showers Required

Your water heater enables you to take a hot bath or shower. Modern water heaters should provide an adequate amount of hot water for a family. If the performance of your water heater requires short showers, or if you hear unusual noises from your water heater, it may be time to call Practicool who can tell you if it’s feasible to repair your current water heater. or whether it would be better to replace it. Such as a such as a tankless water heater.

While there are many things around your home you can handle yourself, plumbing probably isn’t one of them. Professional plumbers can inspect and diagnosis a problem. They’ll know where to start and how to fix any issues they identify. Professional plumbers such as Practicool do far more than fix problems with a sink or toilet. They help protect your home from potential plumbing problems and water damage. They can help save you money and headaches.

Leak Detection

A tiny water leak can create huge problems in a home or business. An undetected water pipe leak will not only dramatically increase your utility bills, but it can also lead to even more expensive water damage and mold. One of the most common issues Practicool finds is a plumbing leak. Many times, homeowners have trouble locating the leak, sometimes not even realizing they have one, but are dismayed by their rising water bill month after month. This is a serious problem that requires the attention of a professional. At Practicool, they specialize in leak detection and plumbing repair. Their professionals will fix your pipes in a safe, reliable, and efficient manner. If you’ve had higher than average water bills, constantly have to refill your pool or hear running water it’s time to call the leak detection specialists at Practicool.

Is water pipe leak detection possible if the pipes are behind a wall? Yes, using the newest state-of-the-art detection tools highly trained technicians are able to locate water pipe leaks that are hidden behind walls, underground, above ground, or even with camera inspection. They can even provide water plumbing leak detection within concrete slab foundations. Will insurance cover the cost of plumbing leak detection services? That all depends on your home insurance plan. In many situations when there is a need for water damage restoration many insurance companies will cover the related costs. Practicool representatives can work directly with your home insurance company to verify the need for the plumbing leak detection service, cause of the problem and the repairs that will be required to remedy the situation.

What Is a Camera Inspection?

It’s wise for homeowners to know what camera inspections are and what they’re used for should a problem ever arise. The purpose of a camera is to be able to see what’s causing a blockage or backup within the sewer pipe without digging up the yard or just guessing what the problem is. Because sewer repairs and pipe replacements are no small task, this helps homeowners avoid expensive repairs without knowing for certain that their problem will be solved when the work is done. The professionals at Practical specialize in camera inspection. A small, flexible sewer camera is attached to a snake-like cable that is feed through the pipe until it reaches the cause of the clog or break in the line. The camera records the physical location of the line and depth from the surface, telling the plumber where the blockage is and what work needs to be done to fix it.

A sewer inspection camera can identify nearly any problem with your sewer line, but these are some of the most common:

Tree root infiltrations: These are most common with old pipes made out of clay, cast iron, or other porous materials. Tree roots seek out water sources as they grow, and if they find a crack in your sewer pipe, they’ll grow into it to get to the water inside.

Major blockages: Sometimes your pipes are in perfect condition, but years of sending things down the pipes that should go in the trashcan has caused a buildup of grease, paper, and other gunk.

Sagging or bellied sewer lines: When a section of the sewer pipe begins to sag, waste gets caught in the bellied section—resulting in repeat blockages.

Broken, cracked, or collapsed pipes: Since the camera feeds along the pipe itself, the plumber will be able to tell if the pipe has collapsed, shifted, or become damaged.
