5 Signs You Need To Call A Plumber


5 Signs You Need To Call A Plumber

Are you experiencing issues such as an overflowing toilet or a clogged drain? If you’re noticing your plumbing isn’t working as it should, it may be time to call a plumber! There are five telltale signs it is time to call your local plumbers at Action Air today!

  1. Your Drains Won’t Drain

Have you ever been taking a shower to notice your feet are swimming in a pool of water? What about when you’re doing dishes and the kitchen sink fills up to the top? This is because you have a plumbing issue with your drains. There could be many reasons why your sink and/or shower are slow to drain. One of the biggest reasons why this happens is because food waste is stuck inside your pipes. While it’s tempting to use chemical cleaner to wash it out, it’s not the most effective way to unclog your drains.

  1. You Have No Hot Water… Or No Water At All

It’s disappointing when you go to take a hot shower after a long day to find there’s no hot water… or worse – no water at all! It’s normal to run out of hot water for a short period of time after doing laundry or after someone in your house takes a long shower. But it’s not normal for your water to take several hours to warm up, or for no water to come out when you turn on the kitchen sink. This could mean you have a problem with your water heater and it’s times to call a plumber.

  1. Your Faucets Won’t Stop Dripping

Usually dripping faucets aren’t the first on the priority list for homeowners. Understandably so, as long as your faucets are working, it’s not really considered problematic. However, did you know that dripping faucets can contribute to your skyrocketing water bills? If your shower or kitchen sink are dripping 10 times per minute, you’re paying for an extra 500 gallons of water per year. Dripping faucets could mean there is pressure buildup, a cracked pipe, or something else.

  1. Your Toilet Keeps Overflowing or Running

Have you ever experienced an overflowing toilet… or a toilet that won’t stop running even hours after you flushed it? This is a sign of a serious plumbing issue. The reasons for your toilet problems can vary, but the most common reasons toilets overflow or constantly run are a clogged or blocked drain, a blocked vent pipe, an improperly adjusted float or a leaking flapper.

  1. Your House Smells Like Sewage

There is nothing worse than living in a space that smells like sewage. A backup or clog can create this issue, making it unbearable to live in. Improperly ventilated drainpipes, damage to your property after an Indianapolis storm, and clogged toilets and pipes are just a few reasons you may experience a backup that contributes to the sewage smell throughout your home.
