Unless you are building a new home or and addition to your current home, your only reason for calling for an Oklahoma City plumbing pro will be when you are having a plumbing problem. You will find many plumbers that are skilled in plumbing repair.
Plumbers are experienced at fixing leaks. If left unattended, leaks from fresh water supplies can cause further damage and the leaks in the drain system are unsanitary. Leaks may provide the correct environment needed for mold growth and can cause dry rot in the support structure of the the home as well as damage to flooring. Walls and wallboard can also be damaged if leaks are not repaired quickly.
The other area where you may need to call a plumber is if you have drains that are not flowing. Many drains can be repaired by learning to use a plumber’s friend or plunger correctly. This can often save you both time and money on plumbing repairs. Many plugged drains can be open and flowing freely again in a matter of minutes rather that waiting for the plumber to arrive and use the same technique.
If the plunger does not unplug the drain, then you may want to call the plumber. He may need to remove a fixture to get to the plug. He may be able to find clean outs in your drain line that will give him the needed access to open your drains. He should have most of the tools needed to repair your drains and have everything flowing again in a few minutes.
If the plumber determines that the problem is not a plug but a full septic tank, then you will need to call a septic pumper to empty the septic tank. Once the tank is empty, your drains should be flowing freely again.
Sometimes homes that are on city sewers begin to get sewer backing up into their homes as a result of a main plug. If you are experiencing a large amount of backup into your home you should call your city immediately. They will be able to open the main and stop the overflow into your home.
If you have plumbing problems, a plumber can both diagnose the problem with your system and make the needed repairs to have your plumbing working great again.
