Signs You Should Call a Torrance Plumber

Minor issues with the plumbing in your home are often ignored, hoping they will go away on their own. You can live with strange noises, a slow drain, or low water pressure, right? However, these are usually signs that your pipes are malfunctioning. Call Carter Services before it gets worse and stay ahead of the situation. Listed below are five warning signs that can help you decide when to call a plumber.

Unusual Noises - Your pipes are running at odd times, do you hear that? Have you heard gurgling from the dishwasher or toilet? Turning off the faucet causes a loud thud (a phenomenon called water hammering)? Often, these are signs that something is wrong. The air chamber in your sink may be clogged with water, the water pressure may be too high, or the water valves or lines connecting your appliances may be worn. Getting a professional to help you identify and fix the root cause of the problem can save you a lot of time and effort.

Slow Draining Water - Plungers or drain snakes can usually clear clogged drains. It's a good idea to call a professional if your slow drain simply won't unclog. You may actually cause more damage to your pipes when you attempt to remove a stubborn block too forcefully. When in doubt, always hire a plumber to avoid unintended, costly repairs.

Low Water Pressure - Everyone hates low water pressure. Many problems can cause this issue, including leaks, clogs, incorrectly sized pipes, and malfunctioning pressure valves. Contacting a plumber for an inspection is the best way to find the source of the problem as soon as possible.

Major Installations - For smaller projects, a DIY mindset can be beneficial, but when it comes to making major changes to fixtures or appliances, it's wise to hire a plumber. You need to be careful even when doing something seemingly simple, such as moving a dishwasher or sink. If you want the job done right, you should hire an expert who has the right tools and knows-how.

Strange Smells - Whenever you smell sulfur coming from your sink or sewage is backing up into your bathtub, it means that there is a problem with a sewer pipe near your home. The foundations of your home and surrounding areas may suffer major damage if a sewer line bursts unnoticed. Definitely don't attempt to fix this yourself - call a professional plumber right away!

    Why Choose Carter Services?

    Dealing with a licensed and insured plumber is safer for you. When you invite workers into your home, there is always a risk of injury. When you deal with a licensed contractor with current workers compensation insurance, and other insurance, you are safer. If an injury or damage occurs, our insurance handles it for the employee doing the work. When non-insured workers are injured on your property, you and your homeowner’s insurance could be left holding the bill. This applies to all of our services, whether it’s plumbing or appliance repair services.

    Our license and insurance information can be found on the State of California’s Contractor’s Board website under License Number 579986.
