Signs that Something is Wrong with Your Home’s Plumbing
July 16th, 2021
Plumbing disasters can cause serious issues in your home if they are not found and fixed in time. Whilst some plumbing issues are easy to notice like dripping taps or an overflowing toilet, others can be hard to spot.
For instance, hidden leaks in your walls are out of sight and can cause massive damage before they are found. This is why it is important to be aware of the signs that you may a problem with your plumbing system. If you notice any of the following signs, do not hesitate to call Plumbing Emergency 24/7.
Low water pressure
The water pressure is meant to remain steady regularly. If utility crews are working near your property, you may experience a temporary drop in water pressure. However, if the pressure is low without any known reason or you are noticing less water coming out of your faucets and showers, you will need a plumber to determine the cause.
Clogged pipes or hidden leaks may lead to low water pressure. We can help you find the exact cause and also handle the repairs that are needed to fix this problem.
High water bills
Water bills may fluctuate from time to time as per your water usage. You might see an increase, for example, when guests stay over since your toilets, showers, sinks and washing machine might be used more than usual.
But, an unexplained increase in your water bills is a sign of plumbing problems. It could indicate that there is a leak somewhere in your home that you are unaware of. You must immediately have our technicians check your home for leaks so that widespread water and moisture damage can be prevented.
A blocked drain might be fixed easily with a plunger, such as if your sink or tub drain is blocked with hair. If you use a plunger and your drain is still clogged or several drains are draining slowly, you might have a much serious problem at hand. Slow drainage may occur due to heavy clogging in the pipes that can only be cleared with professional plumbing equipment. We can conduct a CCTV drain survey to get to the bottom of the issue and quickly resolve it for you.
You can hear water flowing through your pipes when you run water. Aside from this, you should not hear any noise from your pipes. If your pipes are making sounds like rattling noises, it might be that you have loose pipes or the water pressure is higher than normal. Finding the cause of noisy pipes is crucial to prevent pipes from bursting and causing water damage.
