1. Have a walk inside and out to check for moisture and dampness
If you have found signs of moisture or dampness, chances are you have a leak of some sort. These problems can arise from a drainage or mains water pipe causing this to happen. When dampness and moisture go undetected, it can lead to mold.
2. High water usage, this is an important item on our plumbing checklist to help you save money
Receiving a high water bill normally indicates your water usage has increased. Naturally this would be a issue if you have used the water through day to day life. On the other hand, you may have a leak in a pipe whcih is going unnoticed. To find out more about your water consumption visit SA Water’s website.
3. Water pipes below sinks
One common cause of water bursts below sinks is a hot or cold water pipe. Take some time when you are home to check the pipe condition below your sinks, if they look rusty, leaking or not in good condition, it could be time to have them replaced.
4. Hissing noise
Normally if you are hearing this sound, it’s no good, its a tell-tail sign that you have a leak of some sort. Try to get closer towards the hissing noise to find where it is originating from, them call a plumber to help you repair the issue.
5. Hot water heater, this should be on everyone’s plumbing checklist
Hot water heaters is one thing that some customers take for granted, until it stops working. Which can be a pain in the back side at the best of times. Its recommenced to have hot water heater checked by an Adelaide plumber as stated my the manufactures.
6. Running toilet
Is your toilet running? better catch it! Just kidding, if you hear your toilet running/leaking after you have flushed it and left it for a while, its probably due for repairs, and for this a plumber in Adelaide is best suited to fix it.
7. Leaking taps
Leaking taps are easy to fix right? Sure, but in some cases fixing a leaking tap is more than just changing a washer and a plumbing may need to get involved as there are many other components to a tap that a householder may not know how to fix.
8. Gurgling sounds
Can you hear your toilet gurgling or making a bubbling sound, if so, this is more than likely a sign that you have a blocked drain and you should get a hold of your local Adelaide plumber to take a look a little deeper and find the problem.
9. Discolored water
Brown or any other color apart from clear flowing through your taps and toilets isn’t a good sign. It is evidence that you have a fault with your water line or a plumbing appliance on your home like a hot water heater. Get a plumber in Adelaide to take a look.
