Plumbing issues don’t just suddenly appear in your home. They give warning signs that can save you a lot of trouble and frustration. Here are the top four warning signs of a plumbing problem in your Mount Pleasant, Texas, home:
If you suddenly smell a bad odor that smells like rotten eggs, the problem could be a broken vent or sewer pipe under your home. Left unattended, this can cause environmental issues or even damage your foundation. Therefore, you should get it repaired right away.
Weak Water Pressure
If you have weak water pressure, it could be a simple case of residue buildup in the aerator (the screw-on tip of the faucet head). To determine the cause, unscrew the aerator and give it a good clean. If this doesn’t restore pressure, call your plumber immediately. It could be:
- A fractured pipe
- An eroded waterline
- An active leak in the supply line
- A problem with the hot water heater
Higher Water Bills
Has your water bill suddenly gone up for no apparent reason? You might have a water leak. To find out if you do, check your water meter to see if it’s spinning at a time when you’re not using water. A professional plumber can inspect your home for the leak and repair it.
Is the water in your sink or basin taking a long time to drain, even after you use a plunger or over-the-counter drain products? It’s time to call in the professionals. The blockage could be further down the line. Trying too hard to release the blockage can cause pipe damage.
