10 Signs You Should Call A Plumber
Check under you sinks in the house for wet spots. Either along the pipes or underneath.
You could have a defective shower valve or pipes with build up.
Take a close look at your water heater. How old is it? Can you detect rust or corrosion on the water heater or its connection to the pipes? Your water heater might be a ticking time bomb before it starts leaking.
Spray some soapy water onto the gas shut off valve by the water heater. Do you see bubbles? You might have a gas leak.
Look for wet spots in crawl space or attic. Leaking pipes often go undetected until they create harmful molds.
Check all of your shut off valves and hose bibs. Do they turn easily without leaking? Could you shut them off in an emergency? Your valves may need to be fixed or replaced.
Check your toilet water tanks. Do you see any rust or green build up? You could be flushing gallons of water down the toilet without knowing.
Turn your water faucets on full power and shut them off quickly. Do you hear a noise or a bang in the pipes? You might have a “water-hammer”. A simple device can usually take care of this problem.
Do you know where your main water shut off valve is? Do you know where your water meter is? Turn your main water shut off valve to off and look at the water meter. Is it still turning? If the meter is still running, you might have a water leak somewhere that has been going undetected and is costing you.
You might have calcium deposits or other build up causing your faucet to malfunction. Sometimes the faucet can be rebuilt or it is time to replace it.
