Sometimes major problems are signaled by seemingly minor indications. Ignoring them can lead to major repair costs, serious inconvenience and even safety and health hazards. How do you know when a weird noise or a minor inconvenience is a real problem that needs professional attention as soon as possible? The following three signs are common indications that you may have a big problem with your plumbing, which should be taken care of right away.
Noticeably low water pressure throughout your home is a severe red flag. A reduction in pressure is typically caused by one of two serious conditions: either there is a giant leak in your system, or the water main to your home has been damaged. The water that is failing to come out of your tap is coming out of your system at an earlier point. Not only will this cause a major increase in your water bill, but it can also cause extensive water damage throughout your home.
If everything else appears normal, but you see a sharp increase in your water bill and you have no idea where it came from, the most likely cause is a big leak somewhere in your system. You may not notice the leak otherwise because it can be hidden inside your walls or under your floors. As soon as you become aware of a potentially large leak, call your plumbers so that they can locate and fix it as soon as possible.
Unpleasant odors coming from your drains may be the harbinger of a hazardous condition. Often, such smells are the result of damage to the primary sewage line or of dangerous gases like hydrogen sulfide that can build up in drainage system due to several products that are commonly washed down drains. If you notice a bad smell coming from your drain even after you clean it, you should call in a plumber.
