Do you know how to identify a potential plumbing problem in your Central Pennsylvania home or business? Unfortunately, while there are many types of plumbing issues that can arise, not everybody understands what they cause and what kind of service is needed to fix the problems. Our professional Central Pennsylvania plumbers explain some of the things you can look for to determine if you have a serious plumbing issue.
Increased Water Bills
One potential sign of a plumbing problem is an increase in your water bills. This could indicate that you have a leak somewhere in your plumbing and it is allowing more water to exit through the pipe than it should.
Check the pipes under the sink, behind the toilet, and the faucets in the home. If there is water leaking, you should have a plumber come out to take a look at the pipes and see what’s wrong. It could be as simple as a pipe having a leak at the connection, or it could be more serious such as a clog deep in the pipe causing water and debris to buildup.
Low Water Pressure
When you notice that your water pressure is low, it could mean that you have a leak somewhere in the home or building plumbing system. The leak allows out the water that should be exiting through the faucet or showerhead to exit the pipes earlier, resulting in a lower amount of water pressure.
If you have no water on throughout the home, yet you hear water running, it could be possible that there is some type of leak in the home. This is especially true if you hear the toilet continuing to run even long after you have used it. Check the tank of the toilet to see if there is an issue with the rubber stop or chain.
