Signs You May Need to Schedule Plumbing Repair Services
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.
No Hot Water
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.
Rising Water Bills
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.
A Dripping Faucet
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.

Why Work with a Licensed Plumber?
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:
Lowering Water Bills
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.
Preventing Further Damage
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.

Reviews and Ratings
Lake Bluff electrical customer review
“I thought my electrical panel dated to 1956 so I called to get an appraisal for replacing it. The technician discovered that it had been updated during some construction in the 1990's. He said it really did not need to be replaced. I highly value the honesty of Ravinia and its workmen. In addition he fixed a balky stapler for me. Now that's service!”
Northbrook furnace customer review
“Very impressed with the technician's ability to diagnose the problem in less than 5 minutes. It was fixed in a short period of time and the furnace has been working well since. Mark and Tao also gave our furnace a thorough diagnostic check-up to make sure there was nothing else that could become problematic, including going outside to look at the air intake pipe. We were very impressed with the service provided.”
Lincolnshire plumbing and electrical customer review
“Have had the need to use Ravinia a few times; obviously the circumstances were unfortunate. The Ravinia plumbers and electricians were in every instance professional, competent, and courteous.”
Deerfield furnace emergency customer review
“The technicians are always competent, responsive, and really pleasant to work with. I went from "my furnace is on the fritz" on Thursday with a technician out same day to look at it, to an estimate on Friday, and an installation with financing on Monday. The work area is left clean. The technicians care about their appearance and respect the cleanliness of my home. Technicians are always willing to walk me through what's going on in a clear way. They're patient with my questions and thoughtful with their answers.”
Mundelein all services customer review
“We have always found Ravinia's work to be thorough and professional, and every job has been completed fully without the need for a second visit. In our experience, Ravinia has always responded to emergencies with day-of or next-day service. We have yet to experience any technician who wasn't respectful, professional, and friendly, and also careful about Covid protections
We have used Ravinia for many years, first in our Church-provided housing, and for 6 years in our own home since retirement.”
Lake Forest Home Care Club customer review
“Ravinia's annual membership is a great value, pays for itself quickly and gets you timely and professional service. We've been using Ravinia for years and have always received top notch service, particularly in heating emergency situations.”
