When it comes to your home’s plumbing, hiring a knowledgeable, reputable plumber is a must, and hiring the first plumber available can be a dangerous proposition. When you call a plumbing contractor without doing proper background research, you run the risk of poor repair and installation, unreliable scheduling, and unfair pricing.
Whether you’re in need of a fixture upgrade, leaky faucet repair, or emergency help, hiring a plumbing company with a solid reputation should be high on your priority list.

Common plumbing problems
Drains. All plumbers are equipped to handle clogs that occur in toilets and kitchen sinks, but you might need to call in a drain and sewer specialist to address main sewer line issues. Drain cleaning can be more difficult than it seems, because a drain may be clogged in multiple places. It may be tempting to use a chemical drain cleaner, but frequent use can cause considerable damage to your plumbing system.
Faucets. Most homeowners will eventually encounter a dripping faucet or two. It’s typically caused by natural wear and tear to a washer or O-ring from regular use.
Toilets. If you’ve got a toilet that’s constantly running, it’s probably an issue with the flapper, tank valve, or refill mechanism. Toilets that won’t flush may have a disconnected toilet chain (an easy fix you can do yourself by reconnecting it in the toilet tank) or a problem getting water from the supply line.
Fixtures. Call a plumber if you have any bathroom or kitchen fixtures (like toilets, sinks, showers, tubs, and faucets) to install.
Water heaters. Because of local installation codes and regulations, it’s especially important to call a plumber for water heater installation. If you’re replacing an older water heater, a plumber will likely need to update the setup to code. Whether you’re interested in a traditional or tankless water heater, a plumber can handle the install.
Emergency Plumbing Services
Sometimes plumbing accidents and emergencies just happen, which is why several of our Atlanta plumbers provide 24/7 emergency services. When you’ve got a plumbing emergency, be it a leak or a sewer backup, a Best Pick plumber can offer assistance.
Shutting off the water
Even plumbers offering 24/7 emergency services will take some time to arrive, so it’s a good idea for everyone in your home to know how to use the main water shutoff valve (typically located near the water meter). You might not be able to determine the issue, but you can mitigate further damage by turning off the water. Sinks and toilets usually have valves of their own as well, and knowing how to turn those fixtures off can save you time and money when it’s time to clean up.
