It’s quite common for homeowners to fail to notice leaks or ignore plumbing problems until they get out of control. Then, it costs them significantly more to fix the problem than it would earlier. Here are six signs it’s time to get plumbing repair services that you should never ignore.
1 Surprisingly high water bill
Did you receive a surprisingly high bill that you find hard to contemplate how that would be possible? This is a big indication that there might be a problem with your water supply system, and you need to call a plumbers. The high water bill can be explained by there being a leak in a hidden place or any other technical issue with your water supply that you might be aware of.
2 Wet spots on floor and walls
If you come across wet spots on your floor and walls, that’s a sign of a water leak underneath. You should enlist professional plumbing services to have the issue sorted. You should know that ignoring this problem would result in your floor and wall getting water damage. The longer you wait, the more severe the water damage will get, and eventually, you might have to replace the affected floor or wall.
3 Musty odors
Is your home filled with a musty smell of rotten wood or mold? This indicates that there is water in places it shouldn’t be causing the wood to rot and mold to grow. You should have your plumbing looked at as this can also become a health hazard. Continuously inhaling spores from certain molds can bring about the onset of respiratory issues.
4 Mushy yard
Plants need water to grow, making them an excellent indicator for leaks on your water supply lines. If you find part of your yard with grass that’s thriving more than in the other areas, it’s likely that it has an additional water supply from a broken line underneath your home. You will need to have an experienced plumber examine your water lines sooner rather than later. This is because broken lines leaking from under your house’s foundation can do great damage to the structural integrity of your home.
5 Faulty water meter
You might have suspicions that there is an issue with your water supply system. The best way to determine whether your suspicions were accurate or not is to check with your water meter. Start by shutting off all the water outlets in your home and take the reading on the meter.
Wait for at least an hour and go back and take the reading on your meter again. If your water supply system is okay, both meter readings will be the same. If there is a leak somewhere or a problem with the meter itself, the meter readings will be different.
