7 Subtle Signs Your House May Have a Major Plumbing Problem

  1. Your plumbing is made up of a complex network of pipes so it’s sometimes hardly noticeable when there’s something going on unless you have trained eyes for plumbing. That means you know the real situation down the line or in your entire plumbing at the first sign of damage. Call yourself lucky then because you’ll unlikely need to bear with the consequences of a bad pipeline, but if you’re like many who can’t even make a wild guess of what is and whatnot keep reading on.
  • How to Know Your House May Have Major Plumbing Problem

  1. 1. YOUR HOUSE STINKS
  2.  
  3. You get home or wake up with a foul smell in your home, like rotten eggs even when you have home fresheners, you may be in bad luck for having a major plumbing problem in your hand. This could mean that there’s a weak link somewhere in your plumbing system. Possible reasons could be lack of proper drainage, loose seals around the toilet, dry P-trap, improperly installed vents, or worst, broken sewer lines. This funky smell is harmful to health especially when you’re exposed to it for an extended period of time. As it’s tricky to determine the source of the smell, you’ll need to call Revolution Pipe Relining so we can come out, and diagnose the problem. If we find out the smell is caused by a sewer pipe that has damage and can still be fixed with relining, we can carry out a Sydney relining solutions to fix that part.

  5. 2. YOU SEE PAINT DISCOLOURATION/WALLPAPER PEELING ON YOUR WALLS
  6.  
  7. Discolouration of paint in your walls or deterioration of wallpapers is a result of a long-time hidden water leak. Unfortunately, leaks don’t cause a sudden gush of water all the time. Oftentimes, they start with just a trickle that viciously crawls onto other surfaces like your walls. As water collects and is absorbed into your wall or wallpaper, you’ll see black, brown or yellow spots and wallpaper peeling in places. The water causes the paint to loosen and the wallpaper to weaken. Other signs of a hidden water leak behind a wall also include paint peeling or bubbling. This problem is hard to tell, especially if the damage appears behind furniture or wall hangings.
  8.  
  9. Clogged water and sewer lines are what cause pipes to leak, water damage, and broken pipes. If leaks go undetected for a long time, your house can suffer not only from physical damages but as well as foundational damages. Damages that have reached this point would mean thousands of dollars in repair costs.
  10.  
  11.  
  12. 3. YOU HAVE AN UNEXPECTED PUDDLE IN YOUR YARD
  13.  
  14. It’s normal to find a puddle in your yard, especially after torrents of rain, but if you haven’t had any recent rain and notice standing water that seems to never go away, a soft spot or a sunken spot, then there’s a big chance that you have a sewer pipe that has either partially or completely collapsed. Rainwater shouldn’t take long to be absorbed on the ground but when there’s a leak, dislodged part, or a collapsed sewer line, the water running through your sewer pipe will escape and crawl into your yard and form a puddle. If either of these is the case, you will need to have your sewer pipe replaced or relined by a sewer pipe relining professional to seal off these damages.
  15.  
  16.  
  17. 4. YOUR WATER METER NEEDLE KEEPS SPINNING FOR NO REASON AT ALL
  18.  
  19. Your water meter’s needle should only spin if there’s water activity in the house, but if you notice it moving even with all the water-using fixtures are off, you should seek a plumber’s help right away. This problem is an indication of an invisible leak somewhere in your system. A leak is bad in so many ways. If the problem is not addressed, you will not only lose money from wasting water, but you also risk your home from different sorts of water damage. So don’t compromise waiting for another day without calling a pipe professional like Revolution Pipe Relining. We’re pipe relining Sydney experts and we can locate and repair leaks for you. 
  20.  
  21.  
  22. 5. YOUR WATER BILLS HAVE INEXPLICABLY SKY-ROCKETED
  23.  
  24. If your water bills are increasing exponentially from one month to another, but your water usage remains the same, it is likely that a hidden leak is causing the problem. In this instance, it is best to call our plumbers in Revolution Pipe Relining so we can come out to your home and check the problem further. You don’t want the leak problem to remain unaddressed for a longer period of time. The longer you wait to fix a leak, the more it spikes up your water bill. But the worst part is water leaks can risk your home from mold growth, flood and other possible damage in your home.
  25.  
  26.  
  27. 6. YOU NOTICE PART OF YOUR FLOOR FEELS WET, SAGGING OR CREAKS
  28.  
  29. If no one has slopped any water on your floors and you notice wet spots in your carpet or that your floor seems creaking or sagging when you step on it, you might have a slab leak. In homes with concrete slab foundations, the water pipes and drain lines run directly under and through the slab. If one of those pipes has damages, the water collects on your floors from underneath your home. If the problem goes on completely undetected, it will not only damage your flooring but also your entire home’s foundation. The consequences of a leaky pipe is just so damaging that you should treat the problem as an emergency as soon as you notice these signs. 
  30.  
  31.  
  32. 7. YOU NOTICE A MUSTY SMELL IN YOUR HOME
  33.  
  34. When your home is exposed to water escaping from a leaky pipe, it wouldn’t take long for it to start to smell. When water seeps out in walls or in your ceiling, you may notice a musty smell that gets stronger as days pass. This is your indication that a leak has worsened. Most homeowners cover the smell with an air freshener, but this will only give the leaks an opportunity to cause more damage in your home. The best thing to do when you notice an unusual smell in your home is to contact our team right away.  We can sort out the exact location of a potential leak in your plumbing with our pipe camera and fix the problem in a short amount of time.
