You might not pay much heed to what seem to be minor plumbing issues around your home. For example, that kitchen tap that’s been dripping for a while isn’t much of an issue…or is it? When your tap is constantly leaking water, your water bill is slowly going up and that’s just no good. Additionally, little leaks are a potential sign that there could be a plumbing emergency that’s about to rear its head. With this in mind, let’s take a look at some sure-fire signs that you have a plumbing problem:
Water Draining Slowly
You can easily get used to your bathwater taking a while to drain. Perhaps it’s even something that seems to be pretty normal in your home. But, it’s not normal at all. Slow-draining water in your home or business premises may be a sign that there’s a block that could potentially block your pipes entirely. So, it’s crucial to take action before things get even worse.
Damage to walls
Perhaps you feel that that shrivelled up wallpaper in your bathroom isn’t much of a problem. It’s just condensation, isn’t it? Well, it could be, or it could be a sign that there’s a bigger issue at hand. Leaky pipes in your home or business can slowly damage floors and walls. Replacing these isn’t cheap. For this reason, you should always stay on top of any unusual wet spots around the building. Also, be alert to signs and smells of mildew and mould.
Arguably the most obvious sign that there’s an emergency is water flooding everywhere. If this happens, turn off your water and call a plumber straight away.
