Tips to Help You Troubleshoot Plumbing Problems – Part 1

How to Understand When You Need to Book the Services of a Professional Plumber

Today, our specialists are going to share with you a few tops and give you advise on how you can detect a plumbing problem yourself in order to book a plumbing repair service with an expert plumber before the problem grows bigger and costs you more money to get fixed.

Here are the steps that you need to take in order to locate the source of your plumbing problem:

  • Listen for sounds of dripping water. Although homeowners claim that they often do it, it is sometimes really hard to detect such noises in noisy households with many children. Even though a dripping faucet may not seem to waste a significant amount of water, the truth is that each individual drop adds up to thousands of other drops and gallons of water. This is not only environmentally unfriendly but also increases your utility bills.
  • Look for evidence of a leak along the baseboard of the walls near the place where your plumbing fixtures are located. Pipes which contain water that is under pressure can develop loose fittings, become corroded, or crack because of freezing, allowing a continuous loss of water before quality repair is performed. Mold or mildew, darkened surfaces, or even puddles of water may occur below these leaks if they are left unrepaired for more than a few days.

We strongly recommend you to book a licensed plumber when you detect a plumbing emergency. If you are based in Cary, NC, you can take advantage of the affordable services which Metro Rooter Plumbing Cary offers. For more information about our special deals this fall, contact us at (919) 244-5638!
