Plumbing issues are an unfortunate part of modern life that we’ve all dealt with at one time or another. Unfortunately, many people dismiss the signs of trouble until it becomes a major disruption or causes damage to your home. To help you avoid disaster, we’ve put together a list of 5 signs that you may need the help of an experienced plumber.
- Noisy Plumbing
Noisy plumbing is an indication that your pipes are (literally) trying to tell you something. Screeching, pinging, clanging, or rattling could be a sign that there is air trapped in your pipes –which could mean that your air bleed-off system needs attention. Whether you have a squealing faucet or rattling pipes, audible noises from your plumbing system is a good indication that it’s time to schedule a service with a plumber in Costa Mesa.
- Frequent Toilet Troubles
If you find yourself plunging a backed up toilet on a regular basis, this may be a sign that the septic tank needs to be emptied. Another possibility is that tree roots have grown into the pipes and are causing a blockage, or have even caused cracks to form in your pipes. If you are experiencing frequent toilet issues, Parzival Plumbing would be happy to do a simple inspection and determine if you need to consider pipe replacement to prevent any property damage.
- Weak Water Pressure
Low water pressure can make simple daily activities like showering or washing your dishes frustrating and time consuming. This common plumbing problem can be caused by several factors, including pipe blockages, a leak elsewhere in the plumbing or incorrectly sized pipes that are unable to provide sufficient water pressure. No matter the cause, we can send a plumber in Costa Mesa to locate the cause of your weak water pressure and repair the issue quickly.
- Slow Drainage
In most cases, slow drains are a sign that your pipes have become clogged. Blockages in pipes are commonly caused by food and debris, but Orange County’s hard water conditions can also cause lime scale build up on the inside of your pipes. Regardless of the cause, nearly every homeowner will require a drain cleaning at some point.
Parzival Plumbing can easily remove most clogs using either a traditional mechanical snake or by hydro-jetting the line after a video inspection. We also frequently use Bio-Clean, an incredibly effective and environmentally friendly drain cleaning solution, to dissolve blockages in pipes.
- Leaky Faucets
It’s an obvious fix if your faucet leaks when the water isn’t completely shut off, but an entirely different situation when your faucet drips constantly for no apparent reason. If left untreated, a leaky kitchen sink can waste hundreds of gallons of water per month. Although a leaking faucet may seem mildly annoying, in reality it could be costing you much more than you realize.
Unfortunately, trying to fix a problem you don’t understand on your own without consulting a professional may end up causing more damage and ultimately require expensive and time-consuming repairs. If you need help with a leaky faucet or any other plumbing issue, contact Parzival Plumbing today.
