3 Indicators That You Need Plumbing Repairs

Plumbing repairs are tricky business, as many homes have very unique plumbing systems, and problems with those plumbing systems may have many different symptoms. While no two plumbing systems may be exactly the same, there are some common warning signs that homeowners frequently discover which can indicate the need for plumbing repairs in Southern Vermont. The only way that a homeowner can capitalize on such warnings, however, is to recognize that they are indicators of plumbing problems in the first place. A backyard full of sewage or a basement full of water are fairly obvious signs that it’s time to contact a professional plumber. Here are a few less obvious, though equally troublesome, signs that you need professional plumbing services. Contact HB Energy Solutions immediately if you discover them in your home.

Increased water costs, especially when you’ve made no changes in water usage in your home, are a pretty good indicator that you may have a leak in your plumbing system somewhere. The more water you use, the more that you will pay in water bills. This means that inexplicably high water bills may be the result of hidden leaks in your system. Only professional plumbers have the skill and equipment necessary to determine if this is the case, as well as to pinpoint the source of the leaks and to repair them effectively.

Decreased water pressure may also indicate that there is a problem with your plumbing system, and may also stem from leaks therein. This is a tricky one; many homeowners in our service area use well water in their homes, so the issue could be with the well itself or with the well pump. It could also be the result of leaks. In any event, you need a professional plumber to identify and resolve the problem.

Frequently clogged drains, a common annoyance to homeowners, can also be indicative of much more serious plumbing problems. Do not settle for dumping harsh chemical cleaners down your drains, especially if you use a septic system on your property. You could have serious clogs deep within the system, or tree roots may have infiltrated your drain lines. When you work with our staff, you can count on the problem, whatever its nature, being resolved completely.
