Warning Signs That You’re Facing A Plumbing Emergency
Identifying that your plumbing issue is an emergency that needs immediate service can be tricky when you aren’t used to working with pipes and fixtures on a daily basis. Sometimes it’s incredibly obvious – there should never be gallons of water pouring out of your water heater, for instance. Others are subtle but can be identified with a trained ear or eye, like a leaky faucet or clogged drain
Some of the most common signs that you have an emergency plumbing on your hands include:
- Hearing water running through your pipes when no one is using the water. The first thing you should check if you hear water flowing through your pipes is your water meter. If it’s spinning when no one is using an appliance, then odds are you have a leak. You can try turning off your water heater’s valve – if this stops the running water, then you’ve found the source which means that a plumber can get to work right away. If your toilet is the source of the noise, then you may have a damaged component that you can fix on your own. However, if you hear a hissing noise then there are likely larger issues you’ll need a professional to fix.
- You see moisture or frost gathering on exposed pipes in your home. This is a cold-weather problem, but if the outside temperature ever drops below freezing, it can quickly turn into a full-blown catastrophe. Other signs include clanking sounds when you turn on the water, foul smells coming out of faucets, and no water running when you try to turn on a faucet. If you notice that your pipes may be frozen, you need to call a professional immediately.
- Hearing a gurgling noise when you run your shower, dishwasher, toilet, etc. This sound is likely an indication that you have a clog somewhere in your plumbing system, or that you have a serious problem with your drain. If you hear a gurgling noise when using any of these appliances, turn it off immediately to make sure you don’t cause a serious backup in your pipes.
