We advise you do not ignore these common plumbing problems.

1. Why’s the water pressure low?

You check your faucet and it indicates low water pressure suggesting a burst or leaking pipe. If you were to do it yourself a way to check for a leak is to find the main water shut off in your yard, driveway, or street. Jot down where the needle is. Then shut the water off to your house for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, note if the needle has moved.
If you were not using any water and the needle moved, you have a leak and it’s time to call us. If the reading was the same, the low pressure is caused by other issues. It could be that a water filter is clogged or you might need to clean or replace your showerhead.

2. Utility Bill higher?

You look at your water bill and its noticeably larger than your average one. Likely due to a leak. Check to see if any outside faucets are running and perform the same 20minute leak test as described above. The sooner you call us the lower your bill will be next month.

3. Strange Odors

Whether it’s debris trapped in the pipes or a sewer line problem we’ll fix it and keep your house free of strange odors.

4. Slow Drains

What happens if the drains are slow or clogged? Well the hair, food or any other particles are blocking the pipe and well you can try a DIY job and attempt to dislodge the clog yourself with boiling water or a drain snake which isn’t really a real snake that eats everything away it’s a heavy wire that is forced into the plumbing and pushes through or grabs clogs. Leave it us and we’ll snake the drain and let you know if there is a more significant problem.

5. Are the walls darker than before and where did those stains come from?

If a bathroom or kitchen wall starts to show dark circles, these may be signs of mold. Mold needs moisture to grow, so there could be a slow leak hidden within the wall. IF there are stains on the ceiling don’t be alarmed but it may be an indication of a failing roof or a plumbing matter. If you have access get into the attic and above the stains check for anything unusual that may be causing them and contact your professionals at Bright Water Plumbing Services.
