The Telltale Signs You Need Plumbing Repairs
Early diagnosis can happen when property owners know the warning signs that it’s time to call a professional.
The Running Water Meter
When you don’t have the water turned on, your meter should not be running. This can mean water is continuing to run even when you have all the appliances turned off.
The Dripping Faucets
You’re hearing drips from the kitchen sink, or maybe your shower continues to drip for a long time after use.
Action is required. The first step should be to see if tightening your fixtures will do the trick. If that doesn’t work, then the problem might be deeper and require professional diagnosis and repair.
Drips can be easy to overlook. The ones that happen in the bathroom are often out of earshot. Even drips in a common area like the kitchen can subtly turn into background sound — what won’t be subtle is the impact that drips have on your water bill.
Wet Carpets & Floors
If water in your home can’t be accounted for, then you have to consider the possibility of a leak.
A leak like this can cause serious damage, and not just to the carpets and floors. It can damage the foundation of your house, something that will become noticeable with cracks. Water seeping into carpets and floors can leave mold behind. The mold will also cause problems for the structural integrity of your home, and it will develop into a health risk as it gets into the air.
Problems on the Walls
Are you starting to see dark rings or spots on your walls? Perhaps your wallpaper is starting to peel, even though it’s fairly new. An even more obvious sign of trouble is the wall surface or wallpaper starting to bubble up .
Any of these signs are an indicator of a leak. If the leaky water is discolored, it can indicate further problems with rust or sediment in the pipes or water heater.
Not all clues given by the walls are visual — sometimes you can hear them. A knocking sound from behind the wall might be loose pipes or pipes that are experiencing unusual changes in water pressure. Either one calls for a professional examination.
