From a Small Leak to a Burst Pipe, When To Call Your Phoenix Plumber

Low Water Pressure

There are several reasons why you may have low water pressure in your Phoenix home, either rust or debris may be in the water lines or low pressure from the city’s supply line. If you have low water pressure, you will want to call a Phoenix plumber who can inspect your faucet aerator all the way to your water lines to see where the problem is coming from.


You Have No Hot Water

Unless your hot water tank is leaking, than the reason why you do not have hot water may be a little more difficult to determine. If you have an electric hot water heater, the heating element could be faulty, you may have a tripped circuit breaker, blown fuse, bad thermostat, or a bad overload switch. If you have a gas water heater the igniter might have failed. Either way, you will need to call a Phoenix plumber to come and take a look at your water heater to determine why you are not getting any hot water. Hot water heaters can be difficult and dangerous to work on if not done properly, so it is best to call a professional.


Frozen Pipes

If your pipes are frozen, try and close the main shutoff valve and open a nearby faucet before you try and thaw the pipes. You will want to see if the pipe has already burst. If the pipe has burst, then you will want to call a Phoenix plumber so they can replace that section of burst pipe with a new section. If the pipe has not burst you can thaw the pipe by using a hair blow dryer or heat gun.


Damage to the Water Line

If you happen to have extensive damage to the water lines, which is usually caused by freezing, you will want to call a Phoenix plumber. In order to repair this problem it will take a lot of experience and time, so it is best to call a professional.
