You may have a plumbing issue but don’t know if it’s big enough to call a plumber to check it out. You may be surprised that a lot of these small issues can turn into big problems if it isn’t looked at or taken care of before it gets worse. That is why it is important to contact your plumber to come to check it out before no further issues come up! In this blog, we will go through some of the small issues that should warrant a call if they were to arise.
A bad smell coming from your toilet or drains may point to an issue that relates to a major sewer line. The sewer line is responsible for carrying all wastewater away from the home, including water from toilets, sinks, showers, tubs, and washing machines. If there is a bad smell it usually indicates that there is a blockage in the pipeline or that there is a breakage somewhere along the pipeline. If this is the case then the breakage must be located and replaced immediately to prevent damage to your home.
You may find yourself without any hot water or little to no water at all. These issues warrant a callout from your plumber as soon as possible. Having no hot water could mean there is an issue with your hot water system. Depending on what hot water system you may have, it would be safer to be looked over by a licensed plumber. If you have no water at all then this could be a serious issue. Checking all the taps in your home could help to localise the issue but if no water is coming from the taps it could mean a burst pipe. You would need to get a licensed plumber out straight away if this were the case.
You may have had a blocked drain and think your plunger is doing a good enough job keeping the issue at bay but this isn’t always the case. If you find your toilet or drains continuously becoming blocked then it is time to call your plumber. A regular occurring blockage could mean there is a larger issue present. By getting it checked by a plumber, you could be saving yourself some money and stress from emergency plumbing issues arising in the future. You may find you need jet blasting services to stop the blockages.
If your shower or tap is constantly dripping it may be best to get a plumber out to check there isn’t a larger issue at bay. If it is the showerhead or tap that is the issue then it would be beneficial to replace it as this could be wasting water and increasing your water bill every quarter. Either way, it is best to get it checked out just in case.
Another type of leak to look out for would be leakages within your home. If you find yourself putting buckets down to catch water then there are big issues that need addressing straight away. If water has gotten to the point of leaking through your roof then that means it’s made its way through the structures and needs urgent attention.
