Most homeowners don’t think about their plumbing unless something is going seriously wrong. When the issue is minor, like a small drip or a tiny leak, you might be able to put it out of mind and forget that there’s an issue. Unless it escalates to a full-scale plumbing emergency, it could continue on indefinitely because you think you don’t need professional plumbing help. But there are some plumbing issues that you really should not ignore, and these three especially are signs that you should call a plumber as soon as possible.
Drains that are slow to drain or you simply suspect a clog are a huge plumbing red flag. If it feels like it takes forever for the tub to drain after a bath or for the sink to drain after you do dishes, there is likely a clog that needs attention. Clogs might seem like a minor annoyance but they can also lead to bigger issues in the future. And while many people think they can DIY clearing a clog, with a plunger or a drain snake, that if more often than not only a temporary fix. Slow drains may also be the sign of a much more serious issue than a simple clog. Calling in a professional plumbing is the only way to know for sure the cause of your slow drains.
Faucets that drip constantly can be a big issue, because they actually waste a lot of water. This is eventually going to put a major strain on your wallet, but it is also not a good environmental decision to allow it to continue. Dripping faucets can sometimes be an easy fix, like a washer that needs to be replaced. They can also be a sign of a much more serious and complicated problem. Only a professional plumber will be able to tell you for sure, and the sooner you call the better.
Low water pressure can be a really annoying issue, since it makes it less comfortable to shower and harder to wash dishes and do other chores. Low water pressure is also a clear sign that there is something wrong in your plumbing system. You need to have a professional plumber come in to assess the system before the small annoyance becomes a huge issue.
