Here Are A Few Signs It is Time to Call the Plumbing Professionals 

When You Hear a Leak

Whether you notice drips coming from your shower, sink faucet, or your toilet will not stop running, it is a sign that a part of the fixture needs repair or replacement. Many would be surprised to learn that a leaky faucet can equal a water loss of more than 20 gallons in just one day, so you will want to have this resolved quickly. Water can also lead to considerable damage within your home. 

Visual Signs of a Leak

A puddle under the sink or water seeping around the toilet or shower indicates a problem. One sure sign is if you have a bathroom rug that is consistently soaked. If you have this much water leaking, you have a severe issue. The puddle building up under your sink can begin to mildew or mold. Mold and mildew are difficult to eliminate of, so you will need to purchase an entirely new vanity, and your floors could also become damaged, needing significant and expensive repairs. 

You Hear Gushing Water in the Walls

In older homes, the pipes in the wall connected to your bathroom fixtures can burst because they have become eroded. You may hear a sound like water rushing through your walls. If not taken care of immediately, your walls could burst open, spilling water all over your bathroom and causing several other problems. To fix this issue, your plumbing professional will turn off the water and open the walls where you hear the leak. Sometimes, you may not hear the water but signs such as bubbles in the paint or stains on your bathroom walls and ceiling. The bubbled walls and stains indicate a pipe leak in the walls.  

Your Faucets and Fixtures are Making Noise

Loud squeaking, popping, or hissing sounds are a huge indicator that your pipes need to be repaired. Even if you live in an old home. These sounds from faucets or fixtures are not standard and usually indicate worn-down parts within the fixture. 

Your Fixtures are Clearly Corroded or Rusting

You will find this problem in older homes. When you can see rust on the fixtures, this typically means they are on their last legs. Not only is it unsightly, but you will also likely have issues with water pressure, and the water that does come out could be “hard water.” Hard water is when minerals, calcium, and magnesium levels are higher in your water.

Hard Water Can Result in the Following Issues

  • Lower water pressure 
  • You feel a film on your hands even after you use soap. The soap reacting with calcium is what causes soap scum
  • You will have hard to remove spots on glasses or silverware washed in the dishwasher 
  • Keeping your tub and sink clean is harder since minerals are consistently building up 

You Run Out of Hot Water Quickly

When this happens, the worst-case scenario is that your water heater is too old, and it may be time to replace it. On average, water heaters usually last between 8 to 12 years.

Why You May be Running Out of Hot Water

  • Sediment is built up inside your water tank 
  • You have a broken dip tube 
  • The thermostat on your water heater is faulty 
  • Too much demand for hot water from multiple sources
