Noticing issues with your plumbing and don’t know if you should seek assistance or just wait it out? We have put together a list of common plumbing problems which may indicate the need to call in the experts. Read below and contact our plumbing contractors if you see any of these problems:
- Poor Water Pressure
If your water is not coming out of the showerhead or spigot in anything more than a weak stream, you may have severely corroded, clogged, or leaking pipes.
- Serious Leaks
If you notice dark spots on your ceilings or walls or standing water in your attic or basement, you may have a serious leak that could potentially warp your floorboards, cause harmful mold and mildew growth, and end up costing you more in water bills annually.
- Drain Blockages
If you smell unpleasant odors or water draining slowly or not at all, you may have a severe blockage caused by corrosion and other materials and chemicals that can slowly eat away at the pipe wall and even induce a system failure.
The plumbing issues above are only a few of the many problems you could encounter with your plumbing system. Sewer line failures, water heater leaks, discolored water, and noisy plumbing are other issues to look out for in your home. If you see any of these issues, we encourage you to contact our plumbers today to discuss inspection, repair, and replacement options.
