A Small Leak

We know how tempting it can be to just ignore a small leak when you find it. After all, if it’s just a tiny leak, how much trouble could it possibly cause, right? Well, the answer is, actually, that a small leak can result in a lot more trouble than it’s worth if you ignore it. Even very minor leaks will waste a lot of water over time, resulting in higher monthly bills and a larger environmental impact. Not only that, but when you leave a leak unchecked, it’s likely that it will cause a bigger problem over time, such as a burst pipe. That can leave you with more complicated, costly repairs as well as the potential for water damage in your home. Don’t risk it, just get that leak fixed as soon as you notice it – the repairs will be simple and affordable, and you can rest easy knowing the problem is solved once and for all.

Recurring Clogs

If your drain clogs once, it’s nothing to worry about. But, if you notice your clog draining several times relatively close together, you’ve likely got a problem that needs to be addressed. You may have a blockage deep in your plumbing system that is simply getting moved around and then getting lodged in place over and over again, causing recurring problems with your drain.

Low Water Pressure

Any sudden decrease in your home’s water pressure could serve as a warning sign that your plumbing system has underlying issues that need attention. As pipes age, they may develop leaks over time. These leaks cause water to escape from the pipes before reaching your home’s faucets. The escaped water not only diminishes water pressure, but also exposes your home to the risk of mold or mildew growth.

If you observe a noticeable dip in water pressure, the first thing you should do is check the pressure reducing valve. If the valve is working, call a plumber who can help identify and address potential leaks that might be contributing to your low water pressure.

A Running Toilet

Does your toilet keep running after you flush it? A running toilet is not only annoying, it also wastes a lot of water. Not only that, it’s likely a symptom of a larger problem that could be causing serious damage you can’t see, such as water seeping under your floorboards.
