Top Three Plumbing Disasters

HVAC Central PA“You just have to jiggle the handle.”  We’ve all heard that phrase regarding a running toilet at some point in our lives.  To be fair, that’s the least of a homeowners plumbing issues.  The plumbing in your home can be the best thing since sliced bread, but it can also be the scourge of your household if it isn’t working properly.  While some things are minor, some things CAN’T wait!

  1. Frozen, Cracked, or Leaking Pipes – Any of one these situations can be potentially devastating to your home.  A burst pipe or a slow leak can severely damage your home.  Leaking pipes can lead to wall, floor, foundation, and more damage.  Call a plumbing service ASAP to repair the problem should you have a leak in your pipes!
  2. Sump pump – A sump pump is used for those instances when water makes its way into your home or if you live in a flood area.  If your sump pump breaks, however, it can be disastrous.  Melting snow, rain, and just a steady groundwater supply can flood your home in a matter of hours.  Don’t be under water for no good reason, call a plumber and get your pump checked out.
  3. Leaking Water Heater – This is a common problem and can most of the time be an easy fix, as the best way to repair a leaky water heater is to simply replace it.  If you ignore your leaking water heater, you may end up with a complete loss of hot water one day.  Call a professional as soon as you notice water around your water heater.
