If you need any plumbing work done in your home or business, it's best to hire a plumbing contractor who knows how to fix a wide range of plumbing problems. Even if your plumbing problem seems simple to fix, a professional with more knowledge will likely know how to resolve the issue more thoroughly and can approach the problem from different angles to find the best solution. Here are some specific plumbing problems that the most well-rounded plumbing contractors can fix.

Pipe Leaks

Pipe leaks won't simply resolve themselves, and failing to have your pipes repaired in a timely manner could result in major water damage inside your home or business. Whether you have a leak that's caused by an old pipe or a pipe that has cracked because of excessively high water pressure, the best plumbers will know how to fix the problem correctly and find the root cause so that measures can be taken to resolve the issue that caused the leak in the first place. 

Clogged Pipes and Drains

Sludge buildups from grease, hair, and food particles that get stuck in pipes and drains may not respond well to store-bought liquid plumbers, and the right plumbing contractors will know how to unclog everything without causing harm to any plumbing components. The most knowledgeable plumbers can even fix clogs that are related to mineral buildups that are sometimes left in pipes and drains from hard water. Plumbers who possess state-of-the-art equipment for removing clogs can do the thorough work that's needed to make your water flow without any jams along its route. 

Running Toilets

Any toilets in your home or business that continue to run long after they've been flushed could increase your water bill if the issue isn't resolved quickly. If you're having trouble determining why a toilet continues to run, an experienced plumber can investigate the problem and will let you know why the issue is occurring. Whether the problem is the result of a faulty toilet handle or an overflow tube that's causing too much water to drain into the bowl, the most knowledgeable plumbing contractors will know what to do to get your toilet to stop running.

Garbage Disposal Problems

The garbage disposal in your kitchen sink that's used to grind up food particles that you put down the drain may not be working as it should, and any of the plumbers who know how to fix garbage disposals thoroughly can be at your service. If your garbage disposal is jammed and you can't get it unjammed yourself, the plumbing contractor you hire can use special tools to free up your disposal. The plumber may even be willing to install a new garbage disposal if you need to replace your old one that's no longer working. 

Hiring the best plumbing contractor will be less cumbersome for you if you're willing to do some extra work to find the most trained and experienced professional. When you hire the right professional, you'll feel more confident in knowing that the work will be done to your satisfaction.
