As a homeowner, you are constantly pulled in different directions when it comes to repairs, fixes, and renovations. But are you thinking about your plumbing needs? Plumbing problems often go unnoticed until they absolutely must be fixed, but that isn’t a good policy. An average household’s leaks account for over 10,000 gallons of wasted water annually, which can be used for 270 loads of laundry. Fixing just those leaks will save you around 10% on you water bill! So instead of waiting, pay attention and call plumbing experts as soon as you notice these three issues in particular.
The thing with clogged drains is that without being fixed, they just clog further. This means that rather than a quick fix, plumbers may actually have to take apart further piping in your home to clear out the debris clogging it. As soon as you realize there is an issue, address it before it progresses further into the piping.
Toilets are the main source of water use in the average home, using about 30% of indoor water consumption. Since it is also an appliance used frequently, you need to make sure it is in working order. This is especially imperative if you only have one bathroom. Small fixes mean not having to shell out for large repairs later.
Water Heater Issues
Issues with this appliance can be especially dangerous because of the heating aspect. If you notice that your water isn’t getting warm or is going cold quickly, you should call an expert to at least take a look at it, if nothing else. This will give you peace of mind, and if there are any issues, you can get them fixed before you have to replace the entire water heater! You’ll save yourself a ton of money and frustration.
