Like many issues you may experience around your home, letting them go unchecked often leads to more serious, expensive problems. Your plumbing system is no different.

Your plumbing system will typically exhibit signs that repair services are needed. Some of the more obvious ones include:
Clogged drains are incredibly inconvenient. If drains aren’t treated quickly, they can put excess stress and pressure on your plumbing pipes, causing expensive damage. A serious clog can also prevent any water from going down the drain, leaving you unable to use the fixture.
A running toilet can leak about a gallon of water per hour. Fortunately, most running toilets can be fixed using DIY methods including replacing the flapper, flush valve or fill valve. If you can’t stop the toilet from running, though, contact a licensed plumber. Meanwhile, an overflowing toilet is caused by a severe clog in the sewer line. This is a plumbing emergency, and you should contact a plumber immediately.
Nobody wants to take cold showers in the morning. Every home needs hot water for cooking, cleaning and bathing. No hot water means your hot water heater needs to be repaired or replaced. Some common water heater repairs include a stuck valve, a faulty temperature and pressure relief valve, a leak or a bad gasket. Leaky water heaters often need to be replaced.
It’s a good idea to check your monthly water bill. A sudden spike in water usage or costs could indicate the presence of a leak somewhere in your home. Small leaks inside your home’s walls are hard to detect. Contact a professional plumber to identify the leak and make the appropriate repair.
The constant drip, drip, dripping of a faucet is enough to drive anyone a little crazy, especially when you’re trying to sleep at night. Contacting a plumber to fix the leaky faucet will save money on your water bill, reduce water waste, and, hopefully, give you a better night’s sleep.
The plumbers at Ravinia Plumbing are licensed and certified to make all types of plumbing repairs, including:
Unless you’re trained to repair plumbing systems, most plumbing work is best left to the professionals. Attempting DIY fixes can lead to damage and even injuries. Some of the benefits of contacting a professional plumbing company for repairs include:
Fixing leaky pipes, dripping faucets and running toilets can prevent potential damage and lower your water bills, putting more of your hard-earned money back in your pocket.
Plumbing repair can be dangerous work. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you run the risk of injuring yourself, a family member or even a pet.
Attempting to fix a plumbing issue yourself can lead to more extensive damage if you lack experience. Letting issues such as clogs or leaks go unchecked can also cause more damage to pipes, leading to costly repair or replacement jobs down the road.
