How To Spot The Need For A Plumber

Blog

In order to ensure that you will always have a properly working plumbing system and that your home is protected from water damage, you will need to know what the signs are that indicate that you have a need for a plumber. When you spot any of the following signs, you will know that it is time to quickly call for an appointment.

The Water Is Bubbling As It Goes into the Drain

When you go to drain a sink or tub full of water, you should not see it bubble up a lot or make a lot of noise. If the sink or tub is doing either of those things, you might want to start your search for the best possible plumber in your area. The reason for the extra noise and bubbling action that you are probably not used to witnessing is most likely a clog that is starting to form in the drain line somewhere. This will continue to happen until the clog is either cleared out or finally blocking the entire passageway. When that happens, you will find that the water can no longer pass through, and it can back up the drain pipe and end up all over your floor.

You Hear Cracking Noises in the Walls When the Water Is On

You should not be able to hear a lot of noises coming from inside of your walls. If you do, and this happens when you have the water turned on, there is a very good chance that there is an issue with your pipes. They could be old and beginning to break apart at the joints. Some pipes, depending on their material, may be starting to form some cracks. This usually happens when you have old plastic pipes carrying your water throughout the house. To determine the exact problem and to know how severe it is, you will need to hire a plumber that can send a very small camera through your water pipes. By doing this, he or she will be able to see the condition of all of your pipes and will be able to pinpoint the exact location of the issue. This will ensure that the plumber will not have to remove more walls or flooring than is absolutely necessary.

After having your plumber tend to the issues that you have stumbled across, you might want to see whether he or she can give your plumbing system a thorough inspection. This way, future potential problems can be spotted before they get out of hand.
