Every house or home will one day require plumbing services. It is inevitable – one day a pipe might start leaking, a sink might get clogged, a toilet might stop working, and then there is a lot of maintenance work especially in older homes.
Everything from pipes to water heating systems is part of a plumbing service. Some minor problems can be solved using DIY solutions. However, the more complex ones will require a professional and duly licensed plumber in Trinidad and Tobago.
The following is a list of the different plumbing services. It is important that you know which one it is that you need when you call a licensed sanitary constructor (aka a professional plumber).
This is one of the easiest of the plumbing services around. Some drain issues can be fixed by the home owners themselves. However, some drains will require more work to clear the oil, dirt, and other debris.
Old Plumbing Replacement
Faucets, pipes, drains, showers, tiles, and even the toilet itself will one day require a replacement. When the cost of replacing these old pieces of plumbing is cheaper compared to repetitive repairs, then you should hire an LSC to get these installations done right away.
Leaks and Clog Repair
Clogs and leaks are some of the most common problems for old plumbing. Sometimes leaks may be very difficult to detect especially if the damaged pipe is under the floor or in the walls. Special equipment may be necessary to identify the source of the leak.
Sometimes you need to reroute the main water pipe and maybe the drain pipes may also need to be rerouted as well. This is one of the plumbing services that require expert and professional skills. You need to get the pipe rerouting done efficiently and quickly, unless you’re okay about not having water in the house for at least 24 hours.
Not everyone will be that enthusiastic about getting down and dirty with the toilet. Again, you will want a professional plumber to get your toilet fixed in a jiffy.
Water Heater Installation and Maintenance
You will need an expert who understands the workings of a water heater system. The installation will require a dual supply system—one for the hot water and the other is for the cold water.
The water heating system gets more complex if you’re in a multi-story building or home. Apart from that, the water heating system will also need regular maintenance.
Sewer Line Blockage
Some homes have their sewer line underground. Blockages and leaks will be very hard to determine and certain types of equipment will be necessary to clear any debris. In some cases the actual pipes in the sewer line might need to be replaced. Depending on the issue, a professional plumber can help remove the blockage or replace parts of the sewer line as needed.
One of the worst things that can happen is to have a water pipe or some other plumbing fixture burst in the middle of the night. It will be very difficult to find help at 3 in the morning, right?
The good news is that there are professional plumbers who offer emergency plumbing services.
Understanding the different plumbing services will help you describe the necessary information to a professional plumber. That way, the LSC can bring all the necessary tools and equipment to get the job done faster and more efficiently.
