Wear Signs on Your Plumbing System

To avoid plumbing issues every homeowner should visually inspect all the water pipes they can see at least twice a year. You can check for signs like leaking pipes, damages of use, and discoloration. etc. In this way, you can prevent problems if you regularly check by yourself and don’t ignore wear signs.
If your house stinks when you wake up in the morning or when you get home in the evening the smell in your home feels like rotten eggs or sulfur, you may have a major plumbing problem. The smell of rotten eggs is also indicative of a gas leak that might be really harmful to people living in that house so you’ll need to call our plumbers so that they can come out to check and repair the problem.
Slow Drains and Low Water Pressure
If you have multiple slow drains it indicates that you have a partially blocked sewer line that needs to be cleaned out. Or you have low water pressure that indicates a problem with the municipal water supply, or a leak on your main water system.

Having green-colored water indicated excessive corrosion in the copper water pipes. Colored water is one of the major signs that you need to call a plumber.
Signs of Damage on Your Walls
Most water leaks have started long before they appear on the surface. Instead, they are constant slow leaks that allow water to drip onto the surface. If you see dark rings and/or yellow, black or brown spots on your ceilings or walls, you probably have a water leak. Other signs of a hidden water leak behind a wall include peeling or bubbling paint or wallpaper.
Wet or Sagging Floors
If you haven’t spilled water on your floor but notice wet spots in your carpet or you see a sagging floor it usually indicates that you have a leaking pipe in your system. Usually, the water pipes and drain lines run under the slab, and if one of those pipes is leaking, the concrete wicks up the water and deposits it on your floors.
