7 Signs You May Need a Pipe Repaired

If you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on utilities over the years, it’s extremely important that you pay attention to the pipes in your home. While most people are not experts at spotting problems with their pipes, there are several tell-tale signs that you need pipe work completed. The most frustrating part is when there is no sign at all that there are issues with your pipes. Even though they may be growing worse, you cannot always know when something bad is awry. When you finally do see the results of a pipe problem, you may fear that you will have to face a lifetime of high utility bills or expensive repairs. However, the sooner you can take care of the issue, the sooner you can begin to find a solution, which will allow your bills to return to normal. Let’s talk about some of the ways you can know if you need to contact High 5 Plumbing for pipe repairs.

  1. Contaminated Water

    While you can always install a water filtration system that can prevent the risk of your drinking contaminated water, you also need to know when something just isn’t right. If you notice that the water coming out of your faucets is visibly murky, this means there is an issue with your pipes. This sorts of issues can affect your family’s health, so paying attention is extremely important.

  2. Rust Spots

    Your pipes run throughout your entire home, which is why being extremely observant of your surroundings is vital. If you notice that there are rust spots in odd places, it is likely that your pipes are rusting and that they need to be replaced.

  3. Crack and Holes You Can’t Explain

    When you notice that there are cracks or holes in the ceiling or walls of your home and you have no idea where they came from, a pipe is most commonly to blame. This problem isn’t just going to go away on its own. In fact, it will only get worse until you call a professional to fix it.

  4. Corroding

    If there are pipes in your home that are visible (most likely outside or in your basement) make sure to observe them from time to time. You will be able to see quite easily if there is corrosion happening. As soon as you notice signs of corrosion, call a plumber. The longer you wait, the more likely the pipe will break potentially causing massive damage.

  5. Low Water Pressure

    If you can tell that your water pressure has weakened since you first moved into your home, there is a chance you have a pipe problem. Most commonly, this means that your pipes are not functioning properly and that they will soon crack or break entirely.

  6. An Old Home

    One of the best ways you can prepare yourself for needing pipes repaired is admitting how old your home actually is. While you may view your home as “classic” because of the history that comes with it, the pipes you use everyday also have history and if they have not been replaced in the last five decades, you probably will experience a problem sooner or later.

  7. Damp Floors or Walls

    Are there water stains on your walls or your carpet? You have a leak. Don’t allow the problem to get worse. Instead, contact one of the professionals at High 5 Plumbing and we can fix your leaky pipe in no time.
