Ignoring Plumbing Problems Can Cost You
Unfortunately, many home and business owners will ignore the early warning signs of an issue with their plumbing system. This often will cause the plumbing problems to become more extreme and more costly to repair. Addressing plumbing problems as they arise will help to save you money, time, and energy.
According to Realtor.com some of the main signs you may need to contact a professional plumber include the following:
If you hear the noise when you’re running the washing machine or dishwasher, or when taking a shower, immediately turn off the water so the system doesn’t back up into the house.
- Hearing water in your pipes (or toilet)
If you hear water running through your pipes when nobody is using water, you might have a leak.
Check for telltale wet or brown spots on your ceilings, walls, or floors. If the wet spot is warm, it’s likely the leak is in your hot water line. This can be vastly helpful info to relay to your plumber (it can cut down the expense or time he spends isolating the source of your drip).
Pro tip: Try checking your water meter to see if it’s spinning when no water is in use.
- Low water pressure
In these cases, the problem can be remedied by simply screwing off the aerator, cleaning off the gunky residue, and screwing it back onto the faucet. But if that doesn’t restore your pressure to normal, things could be more serious—like a fractured pipe, an eroded waterline, or a water leak in the system. Don’t try to fix these compacted issues yourself—call in a pro immediately.
- Slow draining
If you notice your kitchen and bathroom sinks are taking a bit longer than usual to drain, it’s probably best to call in a pro to suss out the source of the clog. Similarly, if your tub, sink, or toilet won’t drain after you attempt to use over-the-counter drain products or plungers, call a plumber, pronto. Trying too hard to release the clog can lead to more pipe damage.
- Frozen pipes
Don’t wait to send an SOS on this one: If your pipes are frozen in the dead of winter, you need to call in a plumber immediately. Telltale signs include your water no longer running, odd clanking noises when you turn on the tap, smells of sewage emanating from the faucet, or visible frost or moisture on exposed pipes. Yikes!
Don’t try to thaw the pipes yourself—this can lead to cracks or, even worse, a full burst. To prevent frozen pipes, let your faucets drip cold water (especially overnight) when outdoor temps dip below freezing, and leave sink cabinet doors open to allow warm air to circulate.
- A sulfur or sewage odor
If you’re suddenly hit with the smell of rotten eggs, you might have a broken vent or sewer pipe under your house. Left unchecked, broken vents or pipes can cause environmental issues and wreak havoc with your foundation.
In general, it’s a good rule of thumb to call a plumber any time you detect an odd smell. Speaking of which…
- Smelling gas
This time, skip the call to a plumber and instead immediately call your utility company. Open your windows, and do not use any appliances, as even turning on lights can cause a spark that can ignite a natural gas explosion.
A plumber will be able to help you safely identify where the leak in your gas line is and repair it before the gas is turned back on to your property.
