Your pipes are the most vital component of your plumbing system. Even the smallest problem can prevent the system from functioning like it should. Sometimes, knowing when your pipes are experiencing problems is difficult because they are usually hidden behind walls and underground. There are, however, a few signs to watch out for. If you notice any of the following signs, you may need pipe repair.
Decreased Water Pressure
Low water pressure is one of the most common signs of faulty pipes. If you have less pressure in the shower than usual or your sink doesn’t seem to have as much pressure as it used to, it could be a sign of a major leak somewhere in the line or that your pipes are on the verge of failing.
Is the water coming from your faucets not as clear as it should be? Murky or cloudy water could be a sign that your pipes are corroding and breaking down. Take note especially if your water takes on a rusty appearance. Rust in your water indicates a serious problem that needs to be addressed right away.
Holes or Cracks
If your pipes have visible holes or cracks, it needs to be repaired or replaced right way. This problem is most common in older homes with pipes that have not been replaced in several years. Even small cracks or leaks tend to get worse in time, so it’s best to address these problems right away.
Unexplained Increase in Water Bill
Has your water bill gone up unexpectedly? If so, you could have a hidden leak. Hidden leaks on your property can waste a significant amount of water and drive up your water bill. If your water bill is suddenly higher than usual and you cannot find an explanation, schedule an appointment for professional leak detection.
