How much does plumbing cost in Embrun?

What is the most common plumbing problem?

Central plumbing is a necessity in all homes and is something we use as homeowners every day. Therefore, when something goes wrong with your plumbing system, it can create an uncomfortable home environment and hinder your ability to perform daily tasks. With that being said, like all home appliances and systems, problems with your plumbing are inevitable, regardless of how they occur. As a result, there are several common plumbing problems that the team at Francis Home Environment fixes on a regular basis, including:

Clogged Toilets

Clogged toilets are typically a result of hair and other non-dissolvable objects being flushed over time. When this occurs, your toilet can become clogged and drain slowly, which can also lead to leaks and overflowing of your toilet bowl.

Clogged/Slow Drainage

Again, hair and other debris that gets flushed down your drains over time can cause your drainage system to drain water slowly or prevent it from draining at all.

Leaky Faucets and Pipes

Leaky faucets are caused by damaged seals along with your taps. While not as irritating as other common plumbing issues, if not serviced promptly can lead to severe water usage each month, which will increase your water bill.

Running Toilets

Running toilets is a result of damage within your toilet, such as broken mechanisms. Again, when this occurs, you can end up using an excessive amount of water unnecessarily and increase your monthly water consumption.

Changes in Water Pressure

Low water pressure is typically caused by the buildup of minerals and sediment in your water line, which can cause clogging and cracking.

Breaks and Cracks in Your Main Water Line

Breaks or cracks in your main water line can cause significant damage to your home. These types of problems are typically caused by aging pipes, changes in soil conditions, changes in ground temperature, and pipe corrosion over time.

When should I call a plumber?

We rely on the plumbing systems significantly throughout the day, which means when there is something wrong, homeowners should be able to tell right away. However, there are other signs that may indicate when something is wrong that you may not be aware of, including: 

  • Strange sewer-like smells around your home. 
  • Water backup or slow drainage when you turn on your faucets for an extended period of time. 
  • Low water pressure when you turn your taps on. 
  • There is no water coming from your taps. 
  • You do not have any hot water running through your water line. 
  • A pipe has burst in your home, which has caused leaks or flooding.
  • Your toilet is running.
  • Your faucets are dripping.
  • Your waterline pipes have frozen due to significant temperature declines.

When should I call a plumber?

As we rely on our plumbing system a significant amount on a daily basis, homeowners will generally be able to tell when there is something wrong. With that being said, not all plumbing issues are as evident as others, especially if you do not know what you are looking for. As a result, sometimes it’s possible to leave minor problems until they manifest into larger ones, which can end up causing more damage to your home and result in high, unexpected repair costs. Therefore, to ensure this doesn’t happen to you, here are some of the signs that you may notice around your home that can indicate that there is something wrong with your plumbing system.

  • There is an odd sewage-like smell throughout your home.
  • You have water backup and drainage problems when you turn your water on for extended periods of time.
  • There is low water pressure in your pipes.
  • A pipe along your main water line has burst or cracked, which has led to leaks and/or flooding throughout your home.
  • There is no water coming through your taps at all.
  • There is no hot water running through your home.
  • Due to changes in temperature, you have noticed the formation of ice along your home’s pipes.

Do any of these signs look familiar to you? If the answer is yes, then it is time to call a plumber at Francis Home Environment as soon as possible. Remember, diagnosing plumbing problems is essential to preventing further damage. Book a free consultation with one of our professional plumbers in Embrun today!
