Your home’s plumbing system serves the vital purpose of delivering fresh water to you and your family while also removing wastewater. A wide range of minor to severe issues could develop between the pipes, faucets, water heater, and other features. Some of these issues may develop slowly over time, and others may develop seemingly out of the blue. All issues should receive your prompt attention.
Top Signs You Need to Call a Plumber
Depending on the issues you are facing today, you may not be able to use some of your home’s plumbing features to draw freshwater as needed or remove wastewater efficiently. Perhaps you are dealing with a leaking pipe that could result in severe property damage. While some signs indicate the need to schedule plumbing repair service, others may not be so obvious.
You would understandably call a plumber if you have a significant clog that prevents any water from circling down the drain. Slow drainage may not seem like an urgent matter, but it indicates a developing clog and should receive prompt attention. Cleaning the pipes now can prevent serious damage down the road.
Poor Toilet Function
When you flush the toilet, the wastewater should be evacuated fully and relatively forcefully. If you are increasingly concerned about the toilet’s functionality, scheduling a plumbing service now can help you to prevent a messy situation with an overflowing or non-functional toilet.
Discolored or Foul-Smelling Hot Water
Your water heater may continue to produce warm water on demand, but it could need professional attention if the water is discolored or if it smells foul. You could optimize the life of your water heater by taking care of the issue today.
Unexplained Puddling in the Yard
In many cases, leaking pipes in the walls of your home are immediately and apparent. When the pipes leading to and from your home develop leaks, the issues may go undetected for a long time because the pipes are concealed. However, if you notice one area of the yard that is constantly moist for no explained reason or if the grass in one area is significantly lusher than in other areas, it may be time to get a plumbing inspection.
Urgent Warning Signs That Signal an Underlying Issue
From time to time, home plumbing systems develop issues that are more difficult to identify unless you know what to look for and are particularly observant. For example, you may not notice a hidden leak in a slab foundation unless you pay attention to your water bill. A sudden and unexplained increase in water usage warrants a detailed inspection. A sewage leak in the yard may not be observed immediately because the sewer line is buried. When a leak in this pipe develops slowly, you may gradually notice a subtle sewage smell. This smell will become increasingly rancid over time. Whether your pipes are rattling in the walls, you have noticed a brown spot developing on the ceiling in the garage, or you have other causes for concern, it is always best to be proactive. By calling a plumber today, you can learn about your plumbing system’s condition and recommended repairs.
