12 Indications You Need a Plumber

Certain plumbing problems, for instance a leaking pipe, are obvious. A few aren’t as blatant but have the potential to cause a lot of destruction in your space.

While you can try to fix some of these plumbing issues on your own, you could end up making them worse in most circumstances. Professional plumbers have undergone specialized instruction and have years of hands-on skills.

Below are a a handful of issues that necessitate the expertise of a local pro like Central Heating & Plumbing.

Water Leakage

1. Leaking Pipes

In the winter, water can freeze in your pipes and cause the pipes to break. A broken pipe can cause flooding and serious water damage in your house if it’s not repaired immediately.

If you think you have a burst pipe, the first step is to turn off your home’s water supply. You’ll complete this at the main water shutoff valve, which is usually found in your utility area or basement. Moving the valve clockwise will cut off the water.

Then call us at 724-401-1843 right away. If it’s behind a wall, in your backyard or under your property’s foundation, we’ll be able to locate the burst pipe and fix it quickly.

2. Water Bills Are Piling Up

If you haven’t used more water than usual and your fee doubles, there’s a good likelihood you have a water leak. Sometimes your bill will go up a bit. It’s more difficult to detect but will typically become more noticeable as the leak gets larger.

It may be hard to find a water leak without pro assistance. However you can check your water meter to determine if the leak is inside or outside your home.

3. Mold is Developing on Walls, Ceilings or Floors

Some mildew is usual in damp rooms like bathrooms. However it’s not typical to find sizable amounts accumulating on a non-shower wall, the ceiling or on baseboards, particularly if these surfaces feel flexible to the touch.

4. Walls, Ceiling or Floors are Damaged

A dripping pipe can make walls, ceilings and floors to feel soft or dip. It could also leave water spots on surfaces.

These concerns can occur in rooms with poor venting or high humidity. But it’s especially problematic if you are enduring other signs of a leaky pipe, like mildew or moldy smells.

5. Bad Smell

Sitting water can make a space smell musty. If the room also has moist walls or floors, you may have a water issue.

Different Plumbing Issues

6. Backflow in Your Sink or Toilet

Your plumbing can back up sewer water and cause damage when the water compression descends in your property. This can be caused by a broken backflow preventer, sewer line damage or other municipal issues. Contact us at 724-401-1843 at the earliest sign of backflow and we’ll get it fixed fast.

7. Water Pressure is Scarce

A few things can be going on when your water pressure is insufficient. There could be a clog in your plumbing fixture. It can also be caused by a nonfunctioning water heater or a busted pipe.

8. There’s Never Ample Hot Water

If you have a boiler with a tank, it has a finite capacity for hot water. If you’re enduring cold water when you don’t use a lot of warm water, something might be wrong. Your boiler could be not watertight, nonfunctional or need to be updated.

9. Sink or Shower Drains Slowly

An obstruction is probably to blame when your sink or shower drains too slowly. We use a special device like a drain snake to unblock and get your fittings draining smoothly again.

10. Toilet Is Continually Running

If your toilet’s tank seal fails, it will signal the tank to continue refilling. A toilet that is always refilling can suddenly drive up your water bills.

11. Water is Dirty

Your water should be see-through.

Don’t have concern if it comes out off-color once in a while, as this typically just means there’s air in the water store. If you find particles settling in your glass, you should have your boiler examined.

Water that’s any other color can be dangerous to your well-being. Here are a few circumstances that can cause your water to be discolored:

  • Brown, red or yellow—This is often caused by a water main break in your community. It may also mean your pipes are deteriorated.
  • Green or blue—This is extremely serious, since it means your pipes are likely corroded. Your water can taste metallic or bitter because of a high amount of copper or lead. Long-term exposure has been associated with to serious health issues in adults and children, including intestinal illnesses, cancer and seizures.

If you’re experiencing discolored water or grime in your water, connect with us at 724-401-1843 and we’ll identify the problem.

12. Pipes are Making Knocking Noises

If your toilet’s tank seal fails, it will signal the tank to keep refilling. A toilet that is always refilling can quickly drive up your water fees.
