Small Plumbing Issues That Indicate Bigger Problems
April 20, 2021
When it comes to pipes and plumbing, what might seem like a minor inconvenience can be a sign of a much larger problem. To avoid future disasters down the line, it’s smart to call a plumber rather than ignore the problem until it gets worse. Here are 5 plumbing problems that the experts at Best Plumbing don’t want you to ignore.
Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure in your home can be a lot more than an inconvenience. In just one area, it may be a quick fix, but low water pressure across all sources can indicate a leak somewhere in your home. This can cause both significant water damage and a high water bill.
Small, easily manageable clogs can be handled with household tools, but more frequent clogs can indicate a more serious blockage that requires professional attention. This can happen after months of build-up in drains. Serious blocked drains can also cause water to back up from other areas. If this is a problem you’ve encountered in your home, it’s best to get professional help!
While a dripping faucet might be easy to sideline, consistently dripping faucets and pipes can lead to wasted water and dollars as well as water damage. Fixing a leaky faucet or pipe is typically an easy project that a plumber can help you repair. High water pressure, mineral buildup and corrosion, or faulty parts can all result in leaking pipes. Hard water is a culprit of both corrosion and build-up, and it’s common here in the Northwest. We’re here to help you get to the route of the problem.
Higher Water Bills
If you experience a sudden spike in your typical water bills, it might not be the fault of someone in your household taking long showers. A much higher month-to-month water bill could be anything from a running toilet to a major leak.
If your pipes have a loud, noticeable rumbling, it might not just be a quirk of your home. Rattling pipes can indicate issues with water flow and, left ignored, can eventually lead to unstable pipes. Parts may come loose, resulting in water leaks, and the overall integrity of your pipes can be at risk.
