Signs that your Kitchen or Bathroom Plumbing is Need of Repair
Your kitchen and bathroom house the most consequential plumbing of any other rooms in your home. Regular maintenance can be a great benefit to the plumbing in your kitchen and bathroom, but unfortunately, sometimes repairs are still needed. A few signs that your kitchen or bathroom plumbing is in need of repair are:
Banging or Knocking Sounds.
Any banging or knocking sounds you hear in your walls while running the water to your sink or showerhead is likely coming from your pipes. This is a sign that you have a plumbing problem, likely having to do with the pipe system or water pressure. You should have this issue addressed immediately, because failure to do so may result in a leak.
Discolored water is a telltale sign of an issue with your plumbing system. The water that comes through your pipes should be clear and clean. Discolored water could be a sign of air in the pipe, a leaky pipe, or rust in your pipes.
If you notice water puddling above the drain in your sink or shower, you may have a plumbing problem with your drain that needs to be addressed. Hopefully you just need the drain snaked to clear an obstruction, but it could also be a broken pipe that is causing the water to pool.
No Hot Water.
We all know that sometimes in a home you reach the maximum capacity of your hot water tank, which means you have to wait for the water in your home to heat up. However, if at the beginning of the day when you first turn the shower on and your water takes a long time to heat up, or it won’t heat up at all, that usually means that you have a leak somewhere in your plumbing system that is causing major fluctuations in water temperature.
If you find your showerhead or sink faucet dripping non-stop when it should be off, not only can that be annoying, but it can also cause long-term problems. Your showerhead or sink faucet may be dripping non-stop due to high water pressure or due to an issue with the tap.
Poor Water Pressure.
Perhaps the most obvious sign of a plumbing system in need of some sort of repair is poor or low water pressure. This is usually an indicator of a clogged pipe, a burst or leaky pipe, or a damaged water heater.
