Life moves quickly, and checking in with the areas around your home is essential to ensure everything is in working order. If you notice any of the following signs, don’t ignore them! Pencil in some time with your plumber if you’re experiencing symptoms that your plumbing may be struggling with.
The drip, drip, drip of faucets can drive you mad! Make sure to address the problem when it arises. It can mean there’s a plumbing problem. The leak could be caused by the valve, which should be checked out. Occasionally check on lesser used guest bathroom faucets and tubs to avoid letting the problem go unnoticed.
Have you noticed prolonged running of your toilets? This can be a significant contributor to sky-high water bills. An issue such as this indicates that it’s time to inspect your plumbing.
A crystal clear indicator, or rather not so “clear” sign of plumbing issues, is discolored water filling up your recently flushed toilet or coming out of your faucets. If you see green, yellow, or brown water, that can signify a severe problem that needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
Puddles in Yard
Are puddles or saturated parts in your lawn never seeming to dry up? This could result from a collapsed pipe or indicate a need for better drainage methods for your yard.
Occasionally check the pipes beneath your sinks and other areas in and around your home. You’ll want to ensure they look alright and that the surrounding area is free from water or water damage. If you notice any corrosion, cracking, or discoloration, give your plumber a call.
Have you been hearing a gurgling noise coming from your toilet or tub? This could be the fault of a clog or obstruction in the venting system. Furthermore, any banging, clanking, or other sounds in your pipes means your pipes should be inspected.
If you have noticed your pipes dripping, you’ll want to call the professionals at Lion Plumbing & Drains straight away. This could lead to burst pipes, causing more significant issues with mold and mildew.
Bonus & Conclusion
This might be surprising, but have you looked at your walls or ceiling and noticed the bubbling of the paint or staining? This can indicate moisture that separates color from the wall or ceiling. This could mean a leak in the plumbing or even the roof.
