8 SIGNS YOU NEED TO CALL A PLUMBER
1. YOU HAVE NO WATER AT ALL
Nothing turns a Friday into a Monday like not having any water at all. If you wake up and don’t get anything beyond a drip, you should call your neighbors and a plumber. If your neighbors have the same problem, a plumber can help you figure out who to call for your property.
If it’s only your home, you’ll want a plumber to immediately solve the problem. Having no water can be a major warning sign that something has gone terribly wrong.
2. YOU HAVE NO HOT WATER
It’s normal not to have any hot water after the kids take an hour-long shower, but it’s not okay if it takes a few hours for water to warm up no matter what. You know it’s time to call a plumber about your water heater if you experience repeat problems and there never seems to be enough hot water.
3. YOUR WATER HEATER IS SWEATING
A water heater that’s sweating or “weeping” is often a sign of a slow but steady leak. Many of us will first discover it when we need to check the pilot light or have to go near the water heater and notice the ground is a little damp.
4. YOU HAVE LOW WATER PRESSURE
When your water doesn’t flow forcefully, it’s usually time to call a plumber to look at the internal workings of your plumbing.
When it is a faucet in one bathroom, it could be something as simple as a clogged aerator. You can address this by unscrewing the aerator and cleaning out the sediment. This is usually done with a little scrubbing or a vinegar soak.
5. YOUR DRAINS WON’T DRAIN
Clogs are common in plumbing, from tubs and toilets to faucets indoor and out. Some of these clogs can be undone with a plunger and a little muscle. But if you can’t unclog them after a little plunger work, or if there’s a clog that consistently backs up, you should call a plumber.
6. YOUR FAUCETS WON’T STOP DRIPPING
If your shower is dripping only 10 times a minute, you’re paying for an additional 500 gallons of water each year.
7. YOUR TOILET KEEPS OVERFLOWING
Toilets overflowing are a part of life, especially when young kids are in the house. Sometimes these issues are easy to address and other times the root cause is hidden — like when your toilet overflows but isn’t visibly clogged. A toilet that’s constantly running can often be fixed by replacing the flapper — and that can save you money too.
8. YOUR HOUSE SMELLS LIKE SEWAGE
Sometimes a backup or clog can create a smell that permeates through your home and makes it unbearable to stay in your space. Don’t try to power through the smell and tackle the problem, because this is a sign of major plumbing distress. You might end up making the problem worse, which means a stronger sewage smell that lasts longer.
