12 Reasons You Need a Plumber

Some plumbing problems, such as a broken pipe, are obvious. A few aren’t as obvious but have the potential to cause a lot of damage in your house.

While you could attempt to fix some of these plumbing issues on your own, you might end up making them worse in most circumstances. Pro plumbers have undergone specialized training and have years of hands-on experience.

Here are a a handful of situations that necessitate the assistance of a local plumber like B & G HVAC.

Water Leakage

1. Burst Pipes

In the winter, water can freeze inside your pipes and cause the pipes to break. A broken pipe can cause flooding and considerable water damage in your space if it’s not mended immediately.

If you think you have a burst pipe, the first step is to turn off your home’s water store. You’ll complete this at the main water shutoff valve, which is usually situated in your utility area or basement. Rotating the valve clockwise will shut off the water.

Then call our pros at 641-316-3360 right away. If it’s behind a barrier, in your backyard or under your house’s foundation, we’ll be able to locate the leaking pipe and repair it quickly.

2. Water Payments Are Piling Up

If you don’t use more water than usual and your payment doubles, there’s a good probability you have a water leak. Sometimes your payment will go up a bit. It’s tougher to detect but will normally become more evident as the leak expands.

It may be hard to find 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. Fungus is Developing on Walls, Ceilings or Floors

A little bit of mildew is typical in humid rooms like bathrooms. Although it’s not typical to find sizable amounts growing on a non-shower wall, the ceiling or on baseboards, notably if these areas feel pliant to the touch.

4. Walls, Ceiling or Floors are Deformed

A dripping pipe can make walls, ceilings and floors to feel soft or droop. It can also leave water blemishes on surfaces.

These problems can occur in spaces with poor ventilation or high humidity. But it’s especially problematic if you are witnessing other signs of a leaky pipe, like odd fungus-like smells.

5. Bad Smell

Sitting water can make a room smell stale. If the area also has damp walls or floors, you may have a water leak.

Other Plumbing Issues

6. Backflow in Your Sink or Toilet

Your plumbing can back up sewer water and cause disrepair when the water force drops in your property. This can be caused by a broken backflow preventer, sewer line impairment or other city issues. Reach out to us at 641-316-3360 at the first sign of backflow and we’ll get it fixed quickly.

7. Water Pressure is Poor

A number of things can be going on when your water pressure is insufficient. There can be a block in your plumbing fixture. It can also be caused by a broken water heater or a busted pipe.

8. There’s Never Ample Hot Water

If you have a boiler with a tank, it has a defined capacity for hot water. If you’re getting cold water when you haven’t used a lot of hot water, something could be wrong. Your boiler could be leaking, nonfunctional or need to be replaced.

9. Sink or Shower Drains Slowly

A clog is probably to be the reason when your sink or shower is draining too slowly. We’ll use a special instrument like a drain snake to unclog and get your sink and shower draining efficiently again.

10. Toilet Keeps Running

If your toilet’s tank seal is broken, it will signal the tank to go on refilling. A toilet that keeps refilling can quickly drive up your water bills.

11. Water is Rusty

Your water should be see-through.

Don’t have concern if it comes out dirty once in a while, as this usually just means there’s air in the water reserve. If you see particles settling in your glass, you should have your water tank examined.

Water that’s any other color can be dangerous to your well-being. Below are a few situations that may cause your water to be discolored:

  • Brown, red or yellow—This is usually caused by a water main break in your area. It could also mean your pipes are old or rusty.
  • Green or blue—This is especially serious, because it means your pipes are probably corroded. Your water may taste like metal or bitter because of a high density of copper or lead. Long-term exposure has been connected to serious health problems in adults and children, including intestinal illnesses, cancer and seizures.

If you’re observing discolored water or grime in your water, call us at 641-316-3360 and we’ll diagnose the concern.

12. Pipes are Making Loud Noises

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