No one wants to experience plumbing problems but if you own a home it is going to happen at some point. The important part is that if you spot any of these warning signs you take the responsible route and act on them. Ignoring them won’t make them go away and, in fact, is likely to lead to worse problems.
A common complaint we hear from our customers is that there was no warning sign. In the very next sentence they will say something like, “I mean it started acting differently about a week ago.” Usually there is a warning sign, you just have to be an astute homeowner and see the signs.
Yes, this is bound to happen once in a while. What you should watch for is if this becomes a regular occurrence or is happening in more than one room of your home. This is a sign of air getting into the pipes and could mean there is a crack in your water line someplace.
Spike in the water bill
This often gets blamed on someone in the house taking longer showers or someone watering the garden too often. If you have a sudden significant spike in your bill you should contact your plumber to check it out. Better to find out there is nothing wrong with your plumbing than to get another larger bill – and then have even more extensive repairs on a problem left to linger.
Leaky basement pipe
This can be troublesome because you may not even spend much time in your basement or even have a basement in Florida. But even under the house, the idea remains the same. You notice a little drip and figure its condensation or just one of those little leaks houses get. Then you forget about it all the while the leak gets worse and possibly even becomes a broken pipe. Always check to make sure the leak doesn’t intensify over time.
Sluggish or clogged drains
It will happen occasionally. The problem is if you use a store bought remedy this can lead to other problems, especially if you use it on the wrong type of pipes. If you find yourself having to use a plunger more than once in a great while to get your drain working it is time to stop ignoring this warning sign.
