The trouble with your plumbing system is that you normally can’t see it. It’s running through the walls of your home/business or located underground where you have no idea what’s truly going on. This can lead to issues if there is a problem with your plumbing, as you may not be able to tell you have a problem until serious damage has occurred.
But not all is lost! Here are 4 plumbing warning signs to look out for that might mean you need repairs.
One of the easiest ways to tell if you have a problem with your plumbing is if you can smell anything strange. If you can smell something that seems like rotten eggs or another foul odour, this might mean you have a problem in your pipes, possibly a build up of sewage.
Difference In Water Pressure
A tell-tale sign you may have a problem with your plumbing is if you are experiencing fluctuations in water pressure. It can be a completely natural occurrence encountering a difference in water pressure, but if you are finding it persists for a long time, you may have a problem with your pipes. It could be a simple build up of gunk or sewage or the warning sign of a bigger issue such as a fractured pipe or a water leak.
If you can hear a gurgling sound when you run the shower or flush the toilet, you may have an issue that needs fixing. If the gurgling persists even after the water stops running, this may be a sign of a major issue. It usually means that you have a blockage and water is struggling to drain away. If the problem persists, you may expect water to begin backing up.
If your pipes frequently freeze over in winter, not addressing the problem could lead to cracks or pipes, which will be expensive to repair or replace. Even if you aren’t using them, it is advised to let your pipes run at a slow pace to prevent freezing and stop future issues developing.
