3 Signs You Have a Plumbing Leak

1. THERE’S A SPIKE IN YOUR WATER BILLS

Water bills naturally rise and fall with use from month to month. However, when you are experiencing a plumbing leak, you’ll notice a significant and steady increase. If these bills seem to be going up on a consistent basis no matter how much you use your water, be sure to call in a professional plumber to check your system.

2. THE WATER METER WON’T STOP RUNNING

One quick way to find out if you have a leak within your plumbing system is to try turning off all the plumbing appliances in your home, and checking your water meter. Is it still running? If so this means that water is still leaving the system somewhere, which means you have a leak.

3. LOSS OF WATER PRESSURE

Have you noticed your water pressure steadily declining? This might mean that you are experiencing a leak or a blockage somewhere within your plumbing system. Whichever issue it is, you should call for repairs right away to confirm the issue. If you’ve had a sudden loss of water pressure, this could even mean that a pipe has ruptured completely and you’ll want to get it taken care of ASAP.

Professional drain Cleaning in Pocatello

While you may not think too much of a clogged drain at first, keep in mind the fact that there is a delicate balance of pressure in your plumbing system. Depending on where the clog is, as well as the severity of the clog, it is possible for it to upset this balance of pressure, which can result in serious operational problems and even damages to your pipes. The trouble with DIY attempts at cleaning your drains is the fact that, like it or not, you are likely going to leave parts of the clog behind.

Why entrust drain cleaning to a professional?

Harsh chemical cleaners may be able to remove parts of the clog, but the pieces they leave behind will waste no time in building themselves back up. You are essentially pouring money down the drain. And yes, you can buy a drain snake at the hardware store, however you are as likely to force it through a clog, opening up a hole while leaving material on the surface of the pipe, as you are to actually remove it effectively. A professional plumber not only has the right tools to clean your drains thoroughly, but also the expertise to use those tools with precision. At Advanced Home Services, our Pocatello drain cleaning pros can inspect your pipelines with specialized equipment, and we can use hydro jetting technology to blast blockages into oblivion.

4 PLUMBING MISTAKES YOU SHOULD QUIT MAKING TODAY

While many plumbing issues just happen over time, others are often a result of user error. Your plumbing system can be delicate, so treat it right by learning about your plumbing system and trusting an expert for services. We’ve listed a few of the most common plumbing mistakes our plumbers see so that you can avoid plumbing problems.

  • USING TOO MANY CHEMICAL DRAIN CLEANERS. Drain cleaners contain harsh chemicals meant to dissolve substances in the drain and scour the inside of the pipes. Eventually, these chemicals will wear away the pipes, which is just part of the reason we strongly recommend against them. They also do a poor job at dissolving many types of blockage, and they are highly toxic, known to injure the skin and eyes.

  • PUTTING THAT LEAK REPAIR AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR TO-DO LIST. If there is a leak in your pipes or from your faucet, it deserves immediate attention. Not only are you wasting water; the situation can get out of control and flood an area of your home or damage the foundation. Call a plumber as soon as you notice water pooling or if there’s a drop in your water pressure.

  • POURING GREASE DOWN THE DRAIN. There are lots of things we should keep out of the drains (meat bones, food wrappers, paper towels, etc.) but the one thing that is most surprising to many is F.O.G. (fats, oils, and grease). If these substances get into your pipes, they may cool down just enough to solidify in the pipes. This allows for drain clogs to start and, potentially, a sewage backup.

  • NEGLECTING TO CALL A PLUMBER. Fixing some plumbing issues on your own can prove difficult, costly, and insufficient. Trust an experienced plumber if you want the job done right.
