The first sign of a plumbing issue usually makes homeowners a bit anxious, and then they start asking themselves questions: Should we call a plumber right away or leave it until tomorrow? What is true is that waiting and allowing minor problems to turn into plumbing emergencies is much more costly than being proactive. Here are some plumbing problems that you definitely shouldn’t ignore.
A little drip may seem like a small annoyance, but it can quickly turn into a big leak or a crack in your pipes. Aside from trying to preserve your home’s plumbing and prevent water damage, having dripping faucets fixed will save water. And, of course, saving water also means spending less on your utility bills.
No Hot Water
Showers that suddenly turn cold or being unable to get hot water from your tap are sure signs that something is wrong. Don’t think you can get by with just boiling water for your baths and dishes. If the problem is your water heater, you’ll want to attend to the issue as soon as possible.
At best, leaking pipes will raise your utility bills and damage the areas under your cabinets a bit. Worst case scenario: a busted pipe, gushing water, and damaged walls. It’s best to call a plumber right away if your pipes are leaking, instead of allowing the leak to go on for months on end.
A working toilet system is essential to maintaining a sanitary home, and a malfunctioning toilet can cause severe issues very quickly. When toilets are clogged beyond the point of being dislodged with a household plunger, it’s often the sign of problems within a home’s lines or drains.
