12 Indications You Need a Plumber

A few plumbing problems, like a burst pipe, are obvious. Others aren’t as noticeable but have the potential to inflict a lot of destruction in your space.

While you may intend to fix some of these plumbing issues on your own, you could end up making them worse in most situations. Expert plumbers have undergone specialized instruction and have years of hands-on skills.

Below are a some issues that require the expertise of a local pro like I-Deal HVAC.

Water Leakage

1. Burst Pipes

In the cold weather, water can freeze inside your pipes and cause them to break. A broken pipe can cause flooding and considerable water damage in your home if it’s not fixed immediately.

If you think you have a burst pipe, the initial step is to shut off your home’s water reserve. You’ll do this at the main water shutoff valve, which is usually found in your utility area or basement. Twisting the valve clockwise will stop the water.

Then call our pros at 505-445-1250 right away. If it’s behind a wall, in your yard or under your property’s foundation, we’ll be able to locate the broken pipe and repair it quickly.

2. Water Fees Are Piling Up

If you aren’t using more water than typical and your fee doubles, there’s a good probability you have a water leak. Sometimes your bill will go up a little. It’s tougher to expose but will typically become more prominent as the leak expands.

It can be hard to locate a water leak without expert assistance. However you can check your water meter to find out if the leak is inside or outside your home.

3. Mold is Growing on Walls, Ceilings or Floors

A little bit of mildew is typical in humid rooms like bathrooms. However it’s not usual to find large amounts developing on a non-shower wall, the ceiling or on baseboards, notably if these spaces feel flexible to the touch.

4. Walls, Ceiling or Floors are Deformed

A leaking pipe can cause walls, ceilings and floors to feel soft or sag. It may also leave water blemishes on surfaces.

These challenges can occur in spaces with poor air circulation or high humidity. But it’s especially hard if you are enduring other signs of a leaky pipe, like odd fungus-like smells.

5. Bad Smell

Sitting water can make a room smell stale. If the room also has moist walls or floors, you could have a water issue.

Other Plumbing Concerns

6. Backflow in Your Sink or Toilet

Your plumbing can back up sewer water and cause damage when the water force lowers in your home. This can be caused by a broken backflow preventer, sewer line impairment or other municipal issues. Call us at 505-445-1250 at the earliest sign of backflow and our team will get it fixed fast.

7. Water Pressure is Low

A few things can be the issue when your water pressure is lacking. There could be a obstruction in your plumbing fixture. It can also be caused by a malfunctioning water heater or a leaky pipe.

8. There’s Never Plentiful Hot Water

If you own a hot water unit with a tank, it has a defined capacity for hot water. If you’re getting cold water when you don’t use a lot of warm water, something could be wrong. Your boiler could be dripping, in need or repair or need to be replaced.

9. Sink or Shower Drains Slowly

A clog is probably to blame when your sink or shower drains too slowly. We use a special tool like a drain snake to unblock and get your fixture draining smoothly again.

10. Toilet Keeps Running

If your toilet’s tank seal fails, it will signal the tank to continue refilling. A toilet that is always refilling can rapidly drive up your water dues.

11. Water is Dirty

Your water should be see-through.

Don’t worry if it comes out off-color once in a while, as this usually just means there’s air in the water store. If you find particles settling at the base of your glass, you should have your water heater examined.

Water that’s any other color can be harmful to your body. Listed are a few situations that could cause your water to be discolored:

  • Brown, red or yellow—This is typically caused by a water main break in your area. It may also mean your pipes are worn down.
  • Green or blue—This is very serious, as it means your pipes are probably corroded. Your water can taste metallic or bitter because of a high quantity of copper or lead. Long-term consumption has been associated with to serious health problems in adults and children, like intestinal illnesses, cancer and seizures.

If you’re seeing discolored water or sediment in your water, connect with us at 505-445-1250 and we’ll determine the issue.
