Let’s face it, plumbing problems are a fairly normal occurrence in any Indianapolis home. In our previous post, we spelled out a few common problems that you could likely solve yourself. With the right tools and a little know-how, you can have your toilets and sinks in tip-top shape. However, today we’re going to discuss problems that may creep up that you should most certainly call for the help of a professional from Indy Renovation. Because even if a problem seems routine, if you don’t use the right methods, you could do serious damage to your pipes.

Plumbing Problems You Shouldn't Fix Yourself

1. Water Line Damage

If you notice soggy spots on your lawn and it hasn’t rained recently, you may have a cracked water line that is leaking water into the soil. Water line damage is not something you can fix without the help of a professional plumber. Pipes that are cracked, broken, or that have water damage can affect the proper function and integrity of your entire water system. Failure to immediately address this plumbing problem may result in expensive repairs in the future.

2. Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure is a common occurrence and may not seem like a big deal. However, it can actually be a symptom of a much bigger and serious problem. Cracks or leaks hidden deep within your water system may actually be causing the low water pressure, and it’s important to address the problem to prevent further damage. A professional plumber can restore proper water pressure and ensure that everything is in working order.

3. Installing a New Water Heater

Installing a new water heater may seem simple; however, if you attempt to install it yourself, you put yourself in danger of serious gas leaks in your home. It is important that the installation of your new water heater is done correctly, efficiently, and safely, by an experienced plumber. A plumber will be able to install your hot water heater so that you can avoid the expensive mistakes associated with attempting to do it yourself.
