October 26, 2016

Pipe repair is highly essential this fall if you do want to worry over your plumbing system or high costs on utility bills. Your pipes may last you a long time, but they will run into issues eventually and you need to be proactive in getting them fixed before it costs a significant amount of money. Therefore, it is important for homeowners to recognize when their pipes are going to need to be replaced. However, for many homeowners, this is often better said than done. Since pipes are often located underground and in between walls, problems may linger without you even having any idea. This can be costly if you have any pipe leaks, which can result in several gallons of water lost. It can also take away from the performance of your home’s most essential plumbing fixtures, including showers and toilets. However, even if it may seem like an impossibility, locating problems with your pipes and stopping them before they get even worse is much more possible than you think. All you need to do is call your local plumbing company for further assistance.

Warning Signs That Indicate A Pipe Repair Service Is Needed

Though pipes are mostly located in the invisible areas of your plumbing, you can still notice signs by taking a closer look at your home. Please take note of any of these 8 warning signs the next time you’re feeling something is wrong with your pipes:

  1. Low Water Pressure: A faulty set of pipes will result in low water pressure that will prevent you from taking a shower or washing the dishes effectively. This is usually a common sign that your pipes are on the verge of failure, and you need to consider what needs to be done in ensuring they continue to work for a long time to come.
  2. Rusty Spots: Noticing random rusty spots in your home? This may be a sign of older pipes in your home and that you should call a professional at Dial One for inspection. Though rusty spots are more common in older homes, it is still worth sending a call our way to avoid paying higher costs on repair in the future due to pipe breakdowns.
  3. Wet Spots on Walls and Floors: Are you also noticing random water stains on their walls or floors in addition to rust? Again, this may be a sign older pipes, but also a sign of leaks. Many unexplained pipe leaks occur simply due to the homeowner not being aware of the age of their pipes. This can lead to some significant water damage, so it’s better to call for service before it costs you too much money.
  4. Strange Noises: If you are beginning to hear the sound of water struggling to pass through drainage pipes, it is a sign that you have a major blockage that will require professional repair. Older pipes will also have a higher risk of making louder, more unsettling noises when water passes through them.
  5. Murky Waters: Any murkiness in your tap water will go away after a few seconds but if it doesn’t, it may indicate a serious problem with your pipes. Broken pipes can allow for contaminants to easily enter your water supply, making water hazardous to consume. Please call for repair, and information on water treatment, as soon as possible.
  6. Outdated Pipes: You definitely will need to repair and replace any pipes made out of polybutylene, clay, and cast iron. These materials are now considered outdated and will not be able to withstand the plumbing demands of a modern plumbing system, allowing them to break apart quite easily.
  7. Corroded Pipes: Pipes may mostly be located underground, but piping may be visible outside or in your basement. This will allow you to examine them for signs of significant corrosion. It’s a sign that pipes inside your home are corroding as well and will need to be replaced immediately before they become damaged beyond repair.
  8. Advance Household Age: Older homes also have a much higher risk of experiencing leaky pipes, especially homes built before 1960. When you do indeed purchase an older home, they may well be dealing with the original pipes of the property, meaning you may automatically be spending more on plumbing services just to keep them working.
