How Do You Know You Need a Plumber?


Almost every renter or homeowner has a few essential tools on hand to cope with minor plumbing emergencies. Many times, a clogged toilet may just need a plunger and a little elbow grease to get it back in working order. If you’re handy around the house, you can change things such as a worn out washer or replacing a drain cover. However, larger plumbing jobs need professional attention. We’ve listed five scenarios below where you may need to give your local plumber a call.


Your bathtub won’t drain

When it comes to a clogged bathtub, you won’t want to mess around. Be sure to deal with your clogged tub as soon as possible. If left, over time the situation will worsen, and you’ll be left with more standing water in your tub.


A qualified plumber can remove the obstruction and check to ensure that it isn’t part of bigger problems. By addressing the issue early, you can save yourself time and money. Call in the professionals like Hebbard Plumbing as soon as you notice your tub is beginning to drain slowly before it escalates to a full clog.

The Faucet Won’t Stop Dripping

Majority of us have dealt with a dripping faucet at one time or another. After all, a slight leak isn’t that much of an issue is it? Wrong. If left unchecked, that dripping can lead to a lot of wasted water and a sky-high water bill. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a one drip per second can mean that you're wasting upwards of 11,000 litres of water a year! Even worse, the leak could be an indication of a bigger plumbing problem. You can try to fix the leak yourself, but it’s best to call in the professionals that way they can get to the source of the problem.

Water Isn’t Flowing Correctly

Water pressure that is weak or inconsistent throughout your home can be a problem. If it’s only a facet or two, it may come down to simply cleaning mineral build up. However, widespread water flow problems could be indicative of a bigger issue with the supply line. At Hebbard Plumbing we know how to diagnose and fix the problem to restore your water pressure back to normal.


If Your Toilet’s Clogged, and Your Plunger Isn’t Helping

A clogged toilet is one of the most urgent plumbing problems there is. The problem could boil down to a sewage line issue too big for your everyday plunger. Rather than damage the aesthetics of your toilet or causing further problems by trying to break the clog yourself, give us a call. All our plumbers are industry qualified with the right tools and expertise to get your toilet back in order.

Leaky Pipes

You may find a puddle under your sink, caused by a leak. Leaks can be a costly nuisance and usually happen at pipe joints; this is why joint fillers take up so much space at your local hardware store. However, these products are only a temporary fix.

While U-joint replacement under your sink isn’t a complicated repair, it can be a messy one. Getting a professional in to do the job is your best bet to ensure the job is done properly.
