Plumbing Signs You Shouldn't Ignore
Rotted or Damp Wall
Dampness invariably means there's water leaking inside the wall. If this is left, the rot will continue. The damp conditions make an ideal environment for mold to grow, too, so the leak needs to be located and fixed. Once we've done that, we'll ensure the area is adequately dried out. If necessary, we’ll install the new drywall for you, too.
Rusty or Dirty Water
If the water coming out of the taps is rusty or looks dirty, there might be a problem with your water heater. It's usually a sign that the inside is starting to erode. Flushing the system completely can extend its lifespan, but it's generally safer to replace the unit when it reaches that point.
Call us whenever you’re concerned about a plumbing emergency. We’ll get our team out there as fast as possible.
Pipes Noises When Water is Running
Sounds could be a sign that air is in the pipes. It's not as serious as other situations, but it could also be an indication that a pipe has worked its way loose from its fittings. If the noises occur only once, you don’t need to be concerned. If it's an ongoing matter, it could be a loose pipe. If left as is, the tube could become cracked, and you would need to replace it. It’s essential to deal with this issue fast to prevent water damage and the potential for mold growth. Our team will come in and find the offending pipe. We’ll fix or replace it, and then remove or clean up any excess moisture within the walls.
Issues That You May Be Be Able To Handle
Do you have a tap that won't stop dripping? That's usually an indication that one of the water-tight seals has perished. If you’re handy with tools, it’s a simple matter to take the head off the faucet and replace the seals. This is a quick and an inexpensive fix that you can handle. No need to call a plumber for a leaky faucet.
If your shower head is clogged, it’s another simple task. It’s not should something you can ignore because the scale buildup increases quickly. You’ll need a sturdy plastic bag, and elastic band, and vinegar. Fill the bag with enough vinegar to cover the shower head. Secure it in place with the elastic band. If you leave it overnight, it should clear a lot of the the build up. Remove the bag in the morning and run the shower. If it's still not clear enough, then keep repeating the process until the water is able to flow smoothly out of the shower head.
If your kitchen sink or bathtub doesn't want to drain, you can attempt to unclog the pipe. Start with a plunger. Place it over the drain so that you get a firm seal. The rubber section should stay in contact with the plughole. Plunge up and down vigorously and see if that dislodges the blockage. If plunging doesn't work, remove as much of the water as possible and pour a cup of baking soda down the drain. Follow it immediately with a cup of vinegar. The mixture will fizz, which might clear the blockage. Follow through with hot water. Alternatively, use a commercial drain cleaner. If that doesn't work, then the issue may require one of our professionals to come out to your home. Give us a call, and we'll sort out the problem for you.
Upgrade Your Plumbing System
Over time, old rubber piping will become dried and start to deteriorate. When that happens, the only option is to install new piping. Give us a call. While we are at your home, we’ll discuss your options for upgrades to older sections of the pipe systems. Some might still be in reasonable shape, but it might be more cost-effective to replace them all at the same time.
