Every system in your home requires maintenance at some point, and this is especially true for your home’s plumbing. It’s important to stay on top of your residential plumbing maintenance to avoid serious problems and costly repairs. While some signs you need to call a plumber may be obvious, like a leaky pipe, there are some more subtle signs to look out for. If you notice any of these signs, call a residential plumber right away.
- No Hot Water – If it takes a long time for the water coming out of your tap to warm up or the water you get is only lukewarm, there is likely something wrong with your water heater. It could be as simple as the pilot light being out or something more complicated like needing to replace your water heater.
- Toilet Keeps Clogging or Overflowing – It isn’t uncommon for a toilet to get clogged, but it is unusual if it continuously clogs or overflows multiple times throughout the day. Make sure to turn off the water to the toilet until a residential plumber has the chance to inspect the issue.
- Loud Banging or Clicking Noises – Loud banging noises coming from your water heater are a sign that something isn’t working right. Don’t hesitate to call us if you hear unusual noises coming from your water heater.
- Drains Won’t Drain – Sometimes things happen, and drains get clogged. If you notice a regular issue with your drains where they aren’t draining and there is no visible clog, give us a call. This could be an issue with the drain pipeline itself.
Luckily, when things go wrong with your home’s plumbing, there are many signs to let you know when it’s time to call a residential plumber. If you notice any of these subtle signs, give us a call and we can help fix the issue.
