Well, it depends on what exactly is wrong. If we’re talking about a dripping faucet, then you can likely purchase a small part and replace it on your own. But there are some issues where you really need a professional. Take clearing a drain clog, for instance. You may think that this is something you can do on your own, but in order to prevent unexpected sink repair in Olympia, you really need professional assistance.
“But wait, can’t I just use a store-bought drain cleaner?” We get it, this is the instinct of many a homeowner when a drain clog forms. But this is not a good way to deal with drain clogs.

There are a number of incidences that can impact your plumbing system. One such incidence is a leak—but not all are created equal.

We’re talking about things like slab leaks. 24-7 plumbing services are available, but we’d like to help you avoid an emergency to begin with. There are signs you can watch and listen for which indicate you may have a slab leak, pinhole leak behind a wall, or some other form of water loss that could lead to a bigger problem.

There’s a perfectly good reason that your plumbing system’s sewer line is buried beneath your yard. First off, it’s more attractive this way—but that’s not the main reason. Having your sewer line located beneath your property is for your safety and convenience. But unfortunately, when something is out of sight like this, it’s hard to spot problems right away. This makes this portion of your plumbing system more vulnerable to problems such as tree roots searching for a water source.
Tree roots are a pretty common reason for sewer line damage and clogs, and they require professional Yelm plumbing services to overcome. As you can likely guess on your own, tree roots crave water. Therefore, all it takes for them to be attracted to your sewer line is a small leak. Tree roots, of course, aren’t the only threat to your sewer line, but they definitely are a major one.

You may have seen us mention in the past just how important maintenance is for your storage tank water heater. For one, this guarantees its safe and efficient use. Secondly, a huge part of storage tank water heater maintenance is checking the anode rod, or rather, the component responsible for absorbing rust that would otherwise affect the lining of the water heater.
Maintenance isn’t just for conventional storage tank Olympia, WA water heaters, though. This service is vital for tankless systems as well. Many of the tasks performed during tankless system maintenance are the same as for a storage tank system, but some aspects are different and require specialized attention—such as the problem with scaling.
