When your toilet overflows or your faucet stops working, that's your house screaming "call the plumber!" It's a tough scream to ignore. But not all homes are as vocal about their needs. Sometimes, homes would rather whisper their needs to you. If you're having any of these issues, your home is whispering "call the plumber."
A leaky faucet is really easy to look past. You might think to yourself "it's just a few drops of water." But those drops add up over time. You could be wasting gallons of water a day, which isn't great for your energy bill or for the planet. Plus, the water can leave mineral deposits on and around the sink. A plumber can usually fix a leaky faucet without having to replace it, so it's worth giving them a call.
Do you spend a lot of time trying to figure out where mysterious odors are coming from? They're probably coming from your drains. And while it may be the drains themselves that are developing smelly blockages, your sewer vents could also be blocked, causing smelly gasses to make their way back into your home. A plumber can figure out exactly what the problem is and solve it.
Low Water Pressure
Do your showers feel less satisfying than they used to? Maybe you feel like you have to spend a lot longer rinsing your hair or rinsing the soap off your body. It's probably not in your imagination. It's probably your home whispering that it needs a plumber's attention. You might have mineral deposits in some of your water lines, a leak in one of your main water pipes, or other problems that are leading to slow water flow.
Higher Water Bills
If your water bills are higher than they used to be, you might just figure the town raised the price of water. But take a closer look. Has the price of water gone up or have you used more water? If it's the latter, and if you have not done something like fill up a pool, then you may have a hidden leak somewhere. Your plumber can find and fix the leak before you end up with water damage.
Sometimes, your house prefers to whisper rather than yell. Make sure you are listening. A plumber is just a phone call away, and they can do great work.
