2 Things You Need to Know Before Calling A Plumber

We have many customers in Winter Springs Florida that call up with drain issues whether it is a clogged tub, toilet or shower,  there are some things that you need to know before you call a Winter Springs plumber. This will help them diagnose the problem over the phone and most plumbers can give you a cost for the Drain cleaning job.

  1. The first and most important is to find out if you are on city sewer or if you have a septic tank. Many of our customers ask how am I supposed to know that and the answer is simple. Just look at your monthly water bill and see if you are charged for sewer it would show as sewer usage charge along with your water charge. The plumber needs to know this because if the tank is full it will need to be cleaned and pumped. This service should be done every 2-3 years.
  2. The next most important thing to know is if everything is backing up or just one thing. Many people will flush the toilet and think it is just the toilet clogged but it will turn out the house sewer main is clogged. To check to see if there’s backing up, look in the shower or tub in that bathroom and see if there is any sewage. If there is not turn the water on to the tub and see if it drains. If it does then it’s more than likely just the toilet. If it backs up chances are you have a main line clog and will need to call a plumber to perform a drain cleaning service.
