Leaky Pipes fixed with Sunshine!
There are several ways you can detect leaky pipes as well as any other major plumbing problems. When something out of the ordinary is happening to the pipes in your house, there will more than likely be several signs that something is awry. For example, the next time you’re in your basement or poking around under the kitchen sink, take a look at your pipes and see if they’re discolored in any way. If there’s any rusting or discoloration, it’s a strong sign that there’s moisture present. This could mean there’s dripping from a sink or drain line or a slow leak in the supply line.
Another sign of leaky pipes is smelling a sewer-like odor. Drain traps have vents that keep sewer gas from entering your home. They channel sewer odor up to the roof while the drain traps create a sort of “water plug” that acts as a barrier stopping sewer odors from coming through the sink drain. So if you smell the sewer gas in your home, chances are a trap has run dry or a cent line has cracked.
A slow stream of water or low water pressure indicates an issue in distribution especially if the issue is in several spots around the house. This could indicate a problem at the water main or an active leak in the supply line.
Other indicators of plumbing problems are slow drains, drops in water pressure during the winter caused by frozen pipes, spiking water bills, bubbling ceiling or wall paint indicating moisture, green patches in the yard due to additional fluids, wobbly toilets, and dirty water coming out of your faucets. It’s imperative that as a homeowner, you inspect different areas of your home regularly. Some of these issues could be resolved by simply removing a clog or tightening a bolt, but when it comes to making sure that these issues don’t have a more serious underlying problem that can become more costly later on, it might be time to call a plumber for leaky pipes. They can better diagnose what is going on and fix it promptly.
