What Is Wrong With My Plumbing?
One of the most important parts of plumbing service is spotting problems
quickly, before they spiral out of control. Consider that even a minor
leak can cause nasty flooding if you’re not careful. This is why
High 5 Plumbing offers 24/7 emergency plumbing service through our High
5 Club—so you never have to wait to get your equipment up and running
again. Remember, the longer you put off dealing with plumbing issues,
the worse they are likely to get, so make sure to call our experts right
away if you suspect there’s something wrong with your system.
Top signs something is wrong with your plumbing system include:
Pipe leaks: Leaks are an extremely common plumbing problem, but what you may not know
is that even slow, gradual leaks can indicate there’s a major issue
in your pipes. You could be dealing with everything from corrosion, to
a broken seal, to clogged lines, so make sure that if you hear the drip,
drip, drip of a pipe leak in your house, you don’t ignore it, and
call High 5 Plumbing right away.
Pipe noises: A banging or rattling coming from your pipes may indicate you have a blocked
vent in your system, that your water pressure is turned up too high, or
that you’re dealing with a loose component. Regardless of what the
problem is, your pipes should not be making loud noises, so call High
5 to get rid of that racket.
Water bill increases: Your water bill should not jump up significantly from one month to the
next, especially if your habits have not changed. If you have noticed
a sudden increase in your water bill, you may be dealing with a leak,
or a toilet that won’t stop running. Speaking of which…
Running toilets: Running toilets are more than just a nuisance for your ears. If your toilet
is running, it may need a new flapper, chain, or float ball. This problem
goes hand in hand with the last one, so if you want to get rid of that
running sound and keep your water bills low, call a professional plumber
to take care of this problem ASAP.
Bubbling toilets: While running toilets are a fairly common issue, an issue that is less
frequent but even more serious is bubbling toilets. If your toilet is
blubbing, it is probably because of a clogged sewer line, or a blocked
vent stack. Sewage problems are not something you ever want to mess around
with, and can pose major health hazards for your entire property, so don’t
ignore that bubbling toilet for even a second.
Slow drainage in sinks and showers: If your sink or shower is draining slowly, chances are you’ve got
a clog on your hands. While this may simply seem annoying at first, large
blockages can cause pipe bursting and back-ups, so you should try to take
care of the problem sooner or rather than later. We recommend not using
chemical drain cleaners, since these can be very toxic for your drain
lines, and often just sit on top of clogs rather than eating through them
anyway. Instead, use a snaking tool to try and break that clog up, or
call our drain experts at High 5 Plumbing for fast and efficient clog removal.
Low water pressure: Low water pressure makes for more than just a bad shower experience. If
your water pressure is low, you probably have a clogged pipe. Call a plumber
to see if the problem lies within your municipal water supply, or your system.
Water back-ups: If water frequently backs up in your sink, especially when your dishwasher
is running, it’s typically because you’re dealing with an
obstruction. Back-ups are a messy issue, so don’t hesitate to call
High 5 Plumbing to take care of this.
A rotten egg smell: A rotten egg smell in your water may indicate sulfur bacteria is present
in your water supply, in which case you should install a water softener.
This smell can also come from your water heater if there are sulfur and
magnesium sediment in it, in which case you will want to flush out the
tank. However, a rotten egg smell could be an indicator of more dangerous
compounds as well, so if you have a softener and the odor isn’t
going away, call a plumber.
Basement flooding: Even mild basement flooding can be expensive to clean up. This is a surefire
sign you’ve got a water heater leak, pipe leak, or a sump pump problem
(in which case you may also be dealing with a sewage problem,) so call
a plumber immediately if you notice flooding in your basement.
