No one wants to deal with plumbing issues, but having a problem is a reality that most homeowners will face at some point. If you’re experiencing any of these plumbing issues at your Plainview, Texas, home, it’s important to take action right away. Ignoring certain problems could have disastrous consequences that are expensive to repair.
Dripping or Rushing Sounds
Hearing the sounds of water dripping or rushing should always be cause for concern. Dripping sounds could mean that you have a damaged fixture that is allowing water to leak out slowly, while the sound of rushing water could indicate a broken pipe or damaged appliance. If you hear either of these noises when the water isn’t running from any of the faucets or fixtures in your home, call a plumber right away to diagnose the issue.
No Hot Water
When you turn on your faucets, hot water should come rushing through within a few moments. If the temperature remains cold, it could indicate a problem with the hot water heater. Start by testing the faucets in other rooms of the home since it could be an issue with the supply line or fixture. If all the faucets are running cold water, check the hot water heater. When this unit gives out, it may lose pressure, resulting in an onslaught of water from the pressure release valve. Wet spots on the floor around the hot water heater also indicate trouble, so contact a plumber to take a closer look.
A clogged toilet or drain in the sink may not seem like a major issue, but it can become one fast. Even a slow-moving drain can cause problems, including water backup and damage. You can try plunging the drain to clear the clog, but if you’re not able to get the water to move, call a plumbing technician right away to lessen potential damage.
