While your home’s plumbing system appears to be working, there are many warning signs of an underlying issue. In order to reduce your chances of major water damage in your home, you must be aware of these signs and identify them to avoid having to file a claim.

 After a while, it is easy to get used to the sound of rattling pipes, a leaky kitchen faucet and a slow flushing toilet. By ignoring these signs, you are creating the headache you could have easily avoided. Here are some warning signs of plumbing failure:

  • A slow, gradual leak coming from a pipe
  • Pipes rattle and make noise
  • An increase in your water bill
  • Persistent sound of running water in toilet
  • Slow drainage in the sink or shower
  • Low water pressure
  • Water backs up in the sink when running the dishwasher
  • Toilet begins to make a “bubbling” sound 

If you notice any of these signs, it is important to call a plumber right away and take care of any necessary repairs, to avoid a major plumbing bill when something goes terribly wrong. When it comes to your home’s plumbing system, this should always be a priority. Click here for further information about plumbing problems and warning signs.
