Why You Should Not Miss Out on the Plumbing Pipe Red Flags

Why You Should Not Miss Out on the Plumbing Pipe Red Flags

  • Every fixture in the house heavily relies on plumbing pipes. Therefore it’s critical that they are in good condition at all times. The challenge is, making sure that it is, can easily slip anyone’s mind because pipes are hidden so it’s likely that it gets attention until it completely breaks down or is showing signs of failure. Fortunately, it’s not that hard to tell if there’s something wrong with your plumbing unless you’re always not around or you’re so busy that you’ll never be able to notice these clues.
  •  
  • If inconvenience and spending a hefty amount on major plumbing repair peeves you, hang in there for a little while as we share with you the red flags of bad plumbing and why you should not miss it out.
  • Red flags of a bad plumbing

  1.  
  2. Smelly kitchen drain
  3.  
  4. Did you ever have to cover your nose because a whiff of rotten egg in your drain is making you feel sick? Or did you smell dead fish in your kitchen despite spraying air fresheners many times? It’s obvious, your sink drain has something wrong. If your sink has not been used for a while,  most likely it has run dry and the smell is coming up in your kitchen sink. But if your drain is just suddenly acting up out of nowhere, there’s a great chance that something has jammed up the drainpipe causing the smell to exude. 
  5.  
  6. Kitchen sinks are vulnerable to clogs because it takes different types of waste everyday that is terrible for causing buildups to accumulate. Think about the food, grease, and dirt. When those items get stuck in the pipes, bacteria builds up, then a smell will immediately follow. This problem may be easy to tell but it can surely lead to major pipe repair when not fixed right away.
  7.  
  8. Toilet-flushing takes time
  9.  
  10. A toilet is meant to last a long time but unfortunately, they see a lot of use and begin to wear away. Try to think of how many times you spend time on the toilet and how many flushes you do daily. You can do the math if you like and add it up to the number of times the other members of your house also use the toilet. That’s except the many things you flush down the drain that’s not supposed to go down there. The clogs will develop and working parts will start to come loose. While other clogs take time to develop, others like flushables wipes will only take a short amount of time to cause trouble in your toilet. So, if you notice your toilet seems to take forever to flush, that’s a telltale sign that you need to call the expert to have a look and see what’s causing the problem.
  11.  
  12. Backing up shower drain
  13.  
  14. You may be surprised while taking a shower the water seems to crawl back into your floor even if you have a drain filter. The obvious answer is there is a blockage that is hampering the flow of the water either down the drain or through the sewer line. Clogs in the shower can be caused by soap scum if you wash with soap in the shower. Soap scum can end up clinging to the walls of the drain and bind to other items, like hair and dirt, that have made it through the drain. Standing ankle-deep in tepid shower water is no fun at all as this can also indicate a sewer line problem. If this happens, call a plumber right away to do a sewer inspection and find out your options to fix the problem.
  1.  
  2. Strange plumbing noise
  3.  
  4. Did you hear strange sounds coming from the plumbing pipes in your homes? The good news is, there’s no supernatural thing inside your house unless you live in a haunted mansion. The bad news is, the strange noise you hear is a warning sign that your pipe may be in bad shape. It’s normal to hear noise coming from the pipes at times because of water pressure vibration. But, a gurgling sound is a clear indication that the water and air bubbles cannot travel down the drain because of an obstruction, hence, the gurgling sound. Small clogs, big clogs, no matter the size, do yourself a favor by calling the professional plumbers that offer pipe relining services Sydney. They can clear any pipe obstructions away from simple to the tree root-causing clogs so it doesn’t end up needing to be dug up later for major pipe repair.
  •  
  • Wet spots in your lawn
  •  
  • In many cases, wet spots in your lawn are pretty normal if it’s close to the sprinkler head. But if there’s one spot in particular that just doesn’t dry at all, especially where the sewer pipe runs, you should be concerned. Wet, soft spots in your lawn almost always indicate underground plumbing leaks. Check if you have sprawling trees near your sewer line. If there is, there’s a great chance that there are tree roots growing inside your pipe. Root intrusion is a culprit in many failing sewer lines underground and this needs to be sorted out right away. Roots can grow in great lengths and width inside the sewer pipe which can lead to foundational and structural damage in your home. 
  1.  
  2. If you’re concerned this might be a situation you have, call the Sydney pipe relining experts. They can fix fractured sewer lines for you in just a short amount of time without worrying your concrete and expensive landscaping to be ripped off.

When you miss out the clues

  1. A lot of things can happen when you miss out on the clues that range from minor to major. So it’s critical that you do something about it right away before it becomes costly and more complicated to repair. A minor clog can leave you with a shower, toilet, and kitchen drain full of murky water and waste. While a small sewer line leak can easily escalate into a flooding situation on your property. It would be much worse if you have old plumbing because it has outdated materials that are vulnerable to clogs and leaks.
