6 Signs You Should Call a Plumber

Some plumbing problems are easy to spot – a dripping faucet, an overflowing toilet, while others can be more subtle. Here are some signs to look for that could indicate a serious plumbing, sewer or drain problem.

1. Water is draining slowly out all sinks, tubs, toilets, dishwasher etc.
This usually indicates a blockage in the main line rather than a localized blockage. A plumber should inspect the main line for blockage.

2. You hear water running but nothing is on.
While a running toilet is a fairly common plumbing noise, if you hear dripping or running water and you can’t determine the source, call a plumber to have the cause identified and to ensure there isn’t a damaging water leak.

3. You see signs of a leak.
If you see mildew or mold, dark surfaces or puddles of water it could be a sign of a water leak behind the wall.

4.Your water bill has unexpectedly jumped.
This could indicate a hidden water leak. Check your water meter to see that amount of water used.

5. Your Toilet is gurgling or bubbling after flushing.
This could be a sign of a backed up sewer line. A video inspection can find the cause of sewer line stoppages.

6. Water pressure has dropped.
If the water pressure has only dropped for a single source, such as a faucet or shower head. Try cleaning the aerator with vinegar to remove mineral deposits. Ensure that all supply valves are completely open. If the water pressure has dropped throughout the entire home, have a plumber inspect the plumbing.
