12 Indications You Need a Plumber

Some plumbing problems, for instance a burst pipe, are obvious. Others aren’t as obvious but have the potential to cause a lot of damage in your home.

While you can intend to fix some of these plumbing challenges on your own, you might end up making them worse in most circumstances. Pro plumbers have undergone specialized education and have years of hands-on skills.

Listed are a few circumstances that call for the assistance of a local pro like Halverson Brothers Inc.

Water Leaks

1. Broken Pipes

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

If you have a leaking pipe, the beginning step is to disable your home’s water supply. You’ll do this at the main water shutoff valve, which is usually located in your utility area or basement. Moving the valve clockwise will cut off the water.

Then contact our team at 715-352-4052 right away. Regardless if it’s behind a barrier, in your backyard or under your house’s foundation, we’ll be able to locate the leaking pipe and mend it quickly.

2. Water Fees Are Piling Up

If you aren’t using more water than normal and your bill doubles, there’s a good likelihood you have a water leak. Sometimes your bill will go up just a little bit. It’s more difficult to detect but will normally become more obvious as the leak gets larger.

It could be hard to find a water leak without pro assistance. However you can check your water meter to figure out if the leak is inside or outside your home.

3. Mold is Growing on Walls, Ceilings or Floors

Some mildew is typical in hot rooms like bathrooms. Although it’s not usual to find sizable amounts accumulating on a non-shower wall, the ceiling or on baseboards, especially if these areas feel flexible to the touch.

4. Walls, Ceiling or Floors are Decaying

A leaky pipe can make walls, ceilings and floors to feel soft or drop. It can also leave water stains on surfaces.

These issues can occur in spaces with poor ventilation or high humidity. But they’re especially hard if you are witnessing other signs of a leaky pipe, like mildew or moldy smells.

5. Stale Smell

Sitting water can make an area smell stale. If the room also has damp walls or floors, you could have a water leak.

Different Plumbing Problems

6. Backflow Within Your Sink or Toilet

Your plumbing can back up sewer water and cause damage when the water force lowers in your property. This can be caused by a broken backflow preventer, sewer line impairment or other municipal issues. Call us at 715-352-4052 at the initial sign of backflow and our team will get it fixed promptly.

7. Water Pressure is Low

A few things can be the issue when your water pressure is lacking. There could be a clog in your plumbing fixture. It can also be caused by a malfunctioning water heater or a leaky pipe.

8. There’s Never Ample Hot Water

If you possess a water heater with a tank, it has a defined capacity for hot water. If you’re getting cold water when you haven’t used a lot of heated water, something might be wrong. Your boiler could be not watertight, malfunctioning or need to be replaced.

9. Sink or Shower Clears Slowly

A block is probably to be the reason when your sink or shower is draining too slowly. Our team uses a special instrument like a drain snake to unblock and get your sink and shower draining smoothly again.

10. Toilet Won’t Stop Running

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

11. Water is Discolored

Your water should be clear.

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

Water that’s any other color can be dangerous to your body. Listed are a few circumstances that may cause your water to be discolored:

  • Brown, red or yellow—This is usually caused by a water main break in your location. It may also mean your pipes are worn down.
  • Green or blue—This is particularly serious, as it means your pipes are probably corroded. Your water can taste like metal or bitter due to a high amount of copper or lead. Long-term intake has been connected to serious health challenges in adults and children, including intestinal illnesses, cancer and seizures.

If you’re experiencing discolored water or sediment in your water, connect with us at 715-352-4052 and we’ll identify the concern.

12. Pipes are Making Knocking Sounds

If your toilet’s tank seal is broken, it will signal the tank to keep refilling. A toilet that is always refilling can suddenly drive up your water fees.
