Plumbing problems aren’t fun for anyone. Unfortunately, that’s why many homeowners will ignore small issues in the hopes they go away. We’ve put together a few signs you should not ignore.
Change in Water Pressure
Unless you’ve recently installed a new showerhead or faucet head and there is a drastic change in your water pressure, it’s a good idea to have your plumbing checked out. The change may be caused by a busted filter or air in the lines. However, it’s important to have a professional plumber come to inspect the issue. If the water pressure suddenly drops there could be a clog or leak in your pipes or a problem with the water line coming into your home.
A smelly drain should not be ignored. If your shower drain smells, contact your local plumbers at Plumb Smart Tech to check for clogs and buildup. Plumbers regularly snake drains to clear out foul odors and gunk that can build up and cause much bigger problems if not addressed.
If you ignore a gross smell coming from your drain, you may miss catching a sewer line leak early and could end up with a more expensive plumbing disaster later on. If the cause of the stench is a break in your sewer line, then your plumbers may be able to fix it before you have any other issues.
High Water Bills
If your water bill seems to be out of control, it’s a good idea to contact your local plumbers. High water bills are likely due to a leak in your pipes as nearly one-tenth of all American homes have leaky pipes. Even the smallest leak will grow and cause damage to your home, so you need to get the leak fixed as soon as possible.
If you’re dealing with plumbing issues in your home, it’s never a good idea to ignore them. Small problems can easily become bigger disasters when they’re left unchecked. Contact your local plumbers at Plumb Smart Tech today to keep your home’s plumbing in great shape.
