When do you need to call a plumber?


This is one of the most common questions in the world of professional drain cleaning crews Αποφράξεις Αντωνίου and plumbers. People do not know when it is the right time to call a professional who will take care of their plumbing system. Most times they just wait for a massive problem to make its appearance and after that they call a plumber.

But usually the damage is so big that they need to replace pipes or even the whole plumbing system of your house. The truth is that you should have your house inspected once a year so that you are sure that you will not be having any major issues with your system that will probably cost you a lot of time and money.

We are going to present you the main reasons why you should call a lawyer and the situations that you could find yourself if you did not call them. Anyway it depends on your budget and time management but we advise you to have a professional come to your house if you are seeing the following signs.

1. No water in the house

If one day you try to open your faucet and no water comes out of it and the same goes for the toilet and the rest of your faucets then you probably have a major issue with your plumbing system. If it is winter and you live in an area with temperatures below zero degrees Celsius then it could mean that your pipes are frozen.

If this has happened make sure to turn of the valve which provides the house water so that if a pipe bursts your house will not be flooded with water. Even if your pipes are not frozen you should still call a plumber to come and check your system so that you know the reason why you are left without a water supply.

Most of the times it is because a pipe has a crack and it is losing water at which case you will have to pay not only for the repair, but also for the water you have wasted at your local water company.

2. Pipe leaks

If you live in a large home with its own individual plumbing system, then you might have already experienced a pipe leak. It is quite common in older houses or in houses with a neglected plumbing and drain system Αποφράξεις Πειραιάς. Many people choose to not spend money on the maintenance of their plumbing system because they believe it is not worth it.

But eventually they come to face big problems concerning the house’s plumbing system and pipes. Α

3. Strong, unpleasant odors

4. Rapid Drainage Line Leak

This case is when your under-sink pipes are leaking and water gets everywhere. If you are going to notice it after a couple of days you could already have some mold forming down there. It is not a big deal but if you want in fixed you migh want to hire a plumber to repair it for you as you could accidentally cause some additional damage.

5. Gas leak from your water heater

When you are in your house and you smell gas you need to find where it is coming from. If you have a kitchen that is working with gas check there first. When it is not coming from the kitchen it might come from your water heater. As everyone knows, gas is flammable and it could spread a fire around your house so it is better if you call your plumber right away.

6. Obviously, a flood

When things have gone completely wrong and you come to your house only to find out that it is flooded then you obviously need to call a plumber and a draining crew. The flood could be caused by various reasons, from a clogged drain to a major pipe burst. This is why you need to turn the water supply off when you are leaving your house for multiple days as a pipe could burst when you are gone. After you get there it will already be too late.


In any of the cases above the consequences will vary. You could either just be stuck with a 200$ water bill or even more because you have “wasted” a lot of water. We know that it was not done purposefully but still the water company will charge you accordingly. From a pipe leak, the consequences are of course a more expensive bill but it could also lead to a flood.
