Everyday life can get a little crazy and overwhelming. And, sometimes, when your to-do list feels like it’s a mile long, you’re tempted to ignore plumbing problems that appear minor. While we understand why you want to look the other way, we urge you to reconsider. Minor problems can cause major damage.
Do not delay repair work if you’re experiencing these plumbing problems.
Clogged drains. An occasional clog is bound to happen – something went down a pipe that shouldn’t have. But a drain that clogs repeatedly could be the sign of a problem. Clogged pipes could lead to blocked pipes, which increases your risk of burst pipes, flooding, and leaks.
Decreased water pressure. There are several things that can cause the water pressure in your home to decrease – an accumulation of minerals and debris in your pipes, a crack in your pipes, or an issue with your shut-off valve. Regardless, the water pressure in your home tells a lot about the health of the plumbing. So, if the pressure suddenly decreased, it’s a good indicator that something’s wrong.
A running toilet. A running toilet might not seem like a big deal, but ask anyone who’s ever had to pay a $500 water bill and they’ll disagree. A toilet that runs non-stop can waste enough water to fill your average swimming pool within 10 days!
