12 Signs You Need a Plumber

Certain plumbing problems, such as a burst pipe, are obvious. Others aren’t as pronounced but have the potential to impose a lot of destruction in your space.

While you can intend to fix some of these plumbing issues on your own, you could end up making them worse in most cases. Specialized plumbers have undergone specialized instruction and have years of hands-on experience.

Here are a some circumstances that call for the assistance of a local professional like J.L. Brady Company LLC.

Water Leaks

1. Broken Pipes

In the cold season, water can freeze in your pipes and cause the pipes to break. A burst pipe can cause flooding and significant water damage in your home if it’s not mended immediately.

If you think you have a burst pipe, the first step is to disable your home’s water supply. You’ll do this at the main water shutoff valve, which is usually situated in your utility area or basement. Moving the valve clockwise will stop the water.

Then call our team at 309-517-7511 right away. Regardless if it’s behind a partition, in your lawn or under your home’s foundation, we’ll be able to locate the broken pipe and fix it quickly.

2. Water Payments Keep Increasing

If you aren’t using more water than typical and your bill doubles, there’s a good possibility you have a water leak. Sometimes your dues will go up just a little bit. It’s harder to expose but will generally become more evident as the leak gets bigger.

It could be hard to locate a water leak without professional assistance. However you can check your water meter to determine if the leak is inside or outside your home.

3. Mold is Growing on Walls, Ceilings or Floors

A little bit of mildew is typical in damp rooms like bathrooms. Although it’s not normal to find sizable amounts accumulating on a non-shower wall, the ceiling or on baseboards, notably if these surfaces feel pliant to the touch.

4. Walls, Ceiling or Floors are Damaged

A dripping pipe can force walls, ceilings and floors to feel soft or dip. It may also leave water stains on surfaces.

These issues can occur in rooms with poor ventilation or high humidity. But it is especially hard if you are enduring other signs of a leaky pipe, like odd fungus-like smells.

5. Stale Smell

Stagnant water can make a room smell musty. If the area also has moist walls or floors, you may have a water problem.

Additional Plumbing Concerns

6. Backflow in Your Sink or Toilet

Your fittings can back up sewer water and cause disrepair when the water pressure descends in your property. This can be caused by a broken backflow preventer, sewer line impairment or other city issues. Reach out to us at 309-517-7511 at the first sign of backflow and our team will get it fixed fast.

7. Water Pressure is Poor

A few things can be wrong when your water pressure is low. There can be a obstruction in your plumbing fixture. It may also be caused by a faulty water heater or a broken pipe.

8. There’s Never Plentiful Hot Water

If you own a boiler with a tank, it has a limited capacity for hot water. If you’re enduring cold water when you have not used a lot of warm water, something might be wrong. Your hot water tank could be leaking, in need or repair or need to be replaced.

9. Sink or Shower Empties Slowly

A block is probably to blame when your sink or shower empties too slowly. We use a special instrument like a drain snake to break it up and get your fittings draining correctly again.

10. Toilet Is Continually Running

If your toilet’s tank seal is broken, it will signal the tank to continue refilling. A toilet that keeps refilling can rapidly drive up your water dues.

11. Water is Rusty

Your water should be see-through.

Don’t fret if it comes out dirty once in a while, as this usually just means there’s air in the water reserve. If you find particles settling at the base of your glass, you should have your water heater examined.

Water that’s any other color can be harmful to your well-being. Listed are a few issues that could cause your water to be discolored:

  • Brown, red or yellow—This is typically caused by a water main break in your community. It could also mean your pipes are old or rusty.
  • Green or blue—This is particularly serious, because it means your pipes are probably corroded. Your water can taste brassy or bitter on account of a high density of copper or lead. Long-term intake has been connected to serious health challenges in adults and children, like intestinal illnesses, cancer and seizures.

If you’re experiencing discolored water or sediment in your water, contact us at 309-517-7511 and we’ll identify the concern.

12. Pipes are Making Knocking Noises

If your toilet’s tank seal fails, it will signal the tank to go on refilling. A toilet that is always refilling can rapidly drive up your water bills.
