Every homeowner deals with plumbing problems such as leaking fixture or clogged drain. If you’re handy around the house, you can tackle a small repair. But if you’re faced with a major plumbing problem, calling a professional plumber is the best option.
To avoid running into a DIY project gone wrong, here’s a list of signs that would indicate that you need to call a plumber.
Unusually high water bill
The easiest way to determine whether you have a leak is to keep track of you water bill each month. This may be due to a dripping faucet or an old toilet that use up lots of water on every flush.
Inconsistent water pressure
If the problem occurs in one or two faucets or in the shower, it could be the result of mineral buildup. However, if there is inconsistent water pressure throughout your home, this could be an indication of an even bigger problem. Save yourself some time and trouble by calling a professional plumber.
Wet spots on the wall or floor
If you notice any water or dampness, and you can’t trace the source, you probably have a hidden leak. Keep an eye on that area, and if the problem does not go away, call in the professionals immediately.
Do not underestimate the damage that leaking water can cause. Even small leaks may cause mold or structural damage.
A lot of people have learned to live with a dripping faucet at some point. But if left unfixed, it may lead to a lot of wasted water and an unusually high water bill.
You can try your own hand at fixing the leak, but if the problem persists, do not hesitate to call Paradigm Plumbing Services.
Water heater problems
If you are the first person to take a shower in the morning and the water won’t heat up, then you may have a water heater problem.
There are a lot of things that could go wrong during a water heater repair. A simple adjustment may end up causing more damage. That said, it is not recommended to work on your own water heater without proper guidance.
