Signs You Need Professional Plumbing Repairs
Some plumbing emergencies are obvious. When your sink backs up or your toilet won’t flush, it’s time to call the pros. But how can you tell when less-obvious issues require the assistance of a trained plumbing professional?
Here are some signs you may need professional plumbing repairs:
- You turn on the tap and no water comes out
- You’re not getting any hot water in your home
- You can hear strange gurgling noises from the pipes
- You’ve got a stubborn drain clog that a plunger can’t fix
- Your water pressure is significantly lower
- Faucets throughout your home are dripping constantly
- Your toilets are backed up and/or overflowing
- You can smell sewage or other unpleasant odors
- You notice signs of a water leak, including water damage
- You need to install new plumbing appliances
When it comes to serious plumbing issues, installations, and repairs, it’s always best to leave it up to the pros. At Mars Services, we respond promptly to all calls and provide the highest quality plumbing services in Dallas and the surrounding areas.
What’s the difference between a traditional water heater and a tankless water heater?A traditional water heater has a large tank, usually capable of holding about 20 to 80 gallons of water, where water is heated and stored for use. Traditional models constantly heat water to allow hot water throughout your home or business. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, are much more energy-efficient. Rather than heating and storing water, tankless water heaters heat water on demand, meaning you have instant hot water whenever you need it. Because they are tankless, these models are also smaller, meaning they take up less space in your home. However, they are not always ideal for large families, multifamily homes, and businesses, which may need access to considerable amounts of hot water. Our team at Mars Services can help you understand the pros and cons of traditional water heaters vs. tankless options and find the best solution for your residential or commercial property.

At Mars Services, we offer comprehensive burst pipe repair, as well as pipe replacement and routine inspections.

Should I use Drano or another drain cleaner on a clogged sink or toilet?We do not recommend using drain cleaners on most clogs, as these substances can be harsh and may damage your pipes or plumbing system. Instead, if you cannot remove a clog with a basic plunger, contact our Dallas plumbers at Mars Services for professional drain cleaning and clog removal.
The Importance of Regular Plumbing Maintenance
No one wants to deal with an unexpected plumbing problem. While these situations can’t always be avoided, regular plumbing system inspections and maintenance can help prevent small issues from turning into major disasters.
Some of the many benefits of routine plumbing maintenance include:
- Increased lifespan of your appliances and plumbing systems
- Fewer plumbing repairs
- Prevention of most plumbing emergencies
- Better water quality and pressure
- Improved efficiency, leading to lower water bills
- Early leak detection and repair
- Significant cost savings over time
Most professionals agree that you should schedule routine plumbing maintenance about once a year, depending on usage and other factors. For businesses and other commercial properties, bi-annual plumbing maintenance is recommended to prevent problems and ensure optimal performance.
