When to Call a Residential Plumber
It’s normal for homeowners to want to do home repairs themselves — it saves money and allows them to learn valuable skills. However, even the handiest person must call a professional in certain situations. So, let’s look at when it’s warranted to call in an expert.
Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure at a single fixture usually means you have a clog in a particular pipe or a faulty aerator. However, if you lose water pressure throughout the house, you need a professional to diagnose the problem and determine the best way to fix it.
No Hot Water
Many water heater problems could cause you to lose hot water. Because hot water is required for showering, washing, and cooking, it’s best to hire a professional plumber to figure out why your water heater isn’t working.
A toilet that constantly runs is a common household plumbing problem. Typically, the flap that seals the drain isn’t sealing correctly, and jiggling the handle usually solves the problem. When your toilet constantly runs, it costs you a lot of money in wasted water.
Multiple Clogged Drains
Like low water pressure, a single clogged drain usually means a blockage in a particular pipe. But multiple blocked drains could mean you have a backup in the main sewer line, which is a problem best left to the pros.
Pipes burst for various reasons, including over-relying on chemical drain cleaners, high water pressure, and age. When a pipe bursts, it can leak hundreds of gallons of water into your home quickly, causing thousands in water damage. When you experience a burst pipe, call a plumber as soon as possible to minimize the damage.
As you can see, there are many home plumbing situations where it’s better to hire a professional plumber than doing it yourself. Plumbers have years of experience and the professional tools to fix your problem quickly and correctly.
If you’re experiencing a plumbing problem beyond your ability to fix, call the experts at Jerry’s Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning immediately.

Santa Barbara Clogged Drain Repair
If you’re like most homeowners, you never think about hiring a plumber to fix something seemingly simple like a clogged drain. However, there are many advantages to hiring a pro.
Most people use over-the-counter drain cleaners to deal with clogged drains. But, these products use harsh chemicals that are toxic to humans and can damage your plumbing if you over-rely on them. Professional plumbers use drain cleaning methods that are safe for you, the environment, and your plumbing.
Unless you know the cause of your drain problem, you can waste hours or days using drain cleaners, hangers, and other home remedies trying to solve it with no success. Professional plumbers are trained to identify clogs quickly and know which solution works best to fix them.
It Eliminates Odors
Have you noticed an awful odor coming from your kitchen sink? When you think about the amount of food waste and grease that goes down the drain every day, it’s easy to see how that material will begin to stink. Plumbers use techniques to remove the offending material and the smell that comes from it, leaving your kitchen smelling clean and fresh.
It Protects Your Plumbing
Hiring a plumber for routine drain cleaning is an excellent preventative measure against problems like clogs and water pressure that can cause your pipes to wear out prematurely. Routine drain cleaning also guards against severe clogs and the need for emergency plumbing repair.
The next time you encounter a stubborn drain clog, call the plumbing professionals at Jerry’s Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning for fast, effective repairs.
