One plumbing problem in your home can be symptomatic of a larger issue that impacts the main drain line within your house. Simply fixing the secondary line where the problem is occurring doesn’t always mean that the primary issue has been solved, and you could be in for even more trouble with your plumbing system before you know it.
When you call for plumbing services, be sure to have the problem taken care of in its entirety so you are not left with a plumbing situation that creates a slow drain or water clog in another area of your home.
Getting to the Root of the Plumbing Problem Saves Money
Sometimes getting to the root of the plumbing problem my mean having multiple plumbing repairs done at one time. While this might seem costly and many homeowners might think that a quick fix is better (and cheaper), consider asking your plumbing company if they offer a multi-task discount. With a multi-task discount, you will be able to take advantage of lower cost services all at one time, rather than having a plumber visit your home multiple times over the course of a season to fix a reoccurring problem that stems from larger issues in your main line.
By having plumbing services performed on both the lateral line, which is the source of the problem, as well as the main line, you can ensure you have alleviated the plumbing problem for good. Plus, you will save significantly on your plumbing costs as you will be able to take advantage of the multi-task discount for more than one area in your home being serviced.
Why Some Plumbing Problems are Not What They Seem
In your home, there is the main plumbing line that feeds several secondary lines for your laundry, bathroom, shower, tub, kitchen and anywhere else you have plumbing. These lateral lines all connect to the main line, and if a problem occurs in one area of your home, it can impact other areas as well.
For example, if you have food or grease clogging your kitchen’s secondary line, you may think that your problem is confined to your kitchen line. These clogs can find their way into the main line and move to your bathroom or laundry room easily. The same is true if you have lint or fabric softener that is obstructing the lateral line in your laundry room. You can have this cleared, but it can easily travel to the main line and wind up wreaking havoc in the kitchen or bathroom.
Because the plumbing lines inside your home are so interconnected, taking care of one area doesn’t mean you are solving the plumbing problem in its entirety. You need to have a plumbing service that examine all areas of your plumbing so you don’t have the problem come back after your plumber has left, costing you another service call.
