Solve These Plumbing Problems Before It’s Too Late
Homeowners often make the mistake of considering plumbing problems as minor. But our experience over the years has only showed that these minor problems lead to major repairs later on.
If even a minor issue, like a faucet dripping is solved at the earliest, it saves homeowners from a lot of inconvenience, and most importantly keeps the house in shape.
Here are some problems that homeowners normally choose to ignore.
If you have cold water in showers, it could mean sediment buildup in the water heater. You should call a plumber immediately and get it cleaned. If you let the sediments stay, it will greatly shorten the life of the water heater as they cause corrosion. Later, you will end up having to completely replace the water heater.
Partially Clogged Drains
If the water is draining slowly, you may have a partially clogged drain. Many people choose to ignore this problem and eventually face a complete clog.
It is easier to open a partially clogged drain with an enzyme-based drainer that do not cause any harm to your pipes. Once the clog is completely clogged, people tend to use harmful drainers that get them a quick result. But in the long-run, they cause pipes to corrode. Corroded pipes will lead to leaks and will require complete replacement.
Leaking or dripping faucets are a common issue in households. Many people choose to ignore this. But a leaking single faucet can drain hundreds of gallons of water a year. This leads to higher water bills. It is also a complete waste of limited resources.
If you notice bad odor coming from a drain, it could mean that the sewer line is leaking somewhere. Other than creating a distressing environment, a leaking sewer line can result in outbreak of bacteria in the house, causing serious health hazards.
Colored or Murky Water
If you see any coloring or murkiness in the water from faucets or showers, call a plumber immediately. There could be many reasons for this—either the supply line is damaged outside your house, or a pipe damaged within your house.
A plumber will conduct a pipe leak test to check for leaks and then perform the necessary procedures. This water is contaminated by rust or from some other harmful substance, and will cause serious problems for your hair and skin.
