Don’t let plumbing be an out-of-sight, out-of-mind issue. Just because you don’t look at your pipes daily doesn’t mean they should be neglected. Unnoticed plumbing issues tend to get costly if they aren’t corrected.

Still, if you don’t know what you’re looking for, you might miss some common signs of more significant issues that require a plumbing company’s help. Here are a few crucial things to watch for that might indicate signs of a plumbing issue.

Water Spots or Water Damage

If you notice a glaring paint bubble or discoloration on a wall or ceiling, that would be hard to miss. Still, leaks are often hidden too. Open cabinets and look for any evidence of leaks indicated by pools of water or soft spots in the wood.

Open up access panels to bathtubs or showers during your search for leaks. Check for evidence of water damage hidden behind there. Make sure to check pipe connection points for moisture or signs of corrosion.

Weak Water Pressure

One of the best feelings in the world is water at high pressure. Everyday things, such as multiple appliances running, can cause a fixture to run with weak force. That’s an expected issue as your home shares the main line with numerous pipes.

However, if you notice weak water pressure in multiple faucets throughout your home, this could indicate a bigger issue. Weak pressure throughout your home may signal a damaged line somewhere that you can’t see.

Water Bill Spike

Here’s an easy one to spot and with regularity too. Unless your funds are unlimited, chances are you know how much your monthly water bill is. More or less, you use the same amount of water in your home each month and pay a consistent price.

Suppose you notice a sudden jump in your water bill or see unexplained increases in use. In that case, you might want to start an investigation. Sometimes these issues are caused by easy-fix leaks, and sometimes they result from a much bigger problem.

Final Thoughts

Most of the time, your home functions just as expected, and life goes on without a hitch. Still, undetected issues can get costly if they go long without repair. If you notice any of these signs and need a trusted plumbing company, call the experts at Bruce Thompson Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling.
