Signs of Potential Plumbing Issues
Sometimes we know in the back of our minds that we might have a potential plumbing issue but seldom do anything until it becomes even a larger issue. There are a few signs that almost always indicate something is wrong and might help you catch it early before things get out of hand and costly. "WATCH OUT FOR THESE KEY SIGNS"
Screeching noises – If you are hearing a high pitched hissing noise when you turn your faucets on or off, its a warning signal that your “bleed-off” system is broken, which could mean that you have a leak.
Low water pressure – Low water pressure is another key signal that you might have a leak somewhere in your house. The disruption of water pressure is one of the most common signs of trouble so don't ignore it and have it checked out. Other issues like clogs and obstructions could be responsible for a decrease in your home water pressure, so you might need to address these things as well.
Mold or mildew – If you see, smell or just have a sense of mold/mildew presence in your bathroom, kitchen or any other area, get it checked out before it grows into an expensive repair or worse health concern. in the right environment and in the presence of water, mold can start to grow rapidly and become a serious issue. If the problem is growing inside your walls, no matter how much you clean, its not going away.
Your water bill – One of the most easy indicator of a leaking plumbing issue is an abnormal increase in your water bill. If you notice a spike in your bill, I recommend you have an experienced plumber or leak detection specialist come out and take a look. This most often times means a plumbing problem is lurking so try and get it before it gets your house.
