You might not think twice when you turn the faucet on your sink to wash your hands, and there is a spit and a sputter of air coming out of just before the water. It is just air in the line, right? However, did you know the air in your water line is likely a sign of a more significant problem with your plumbing NYC? That is the case with many small signs that are indicators of larger issues with your plumbing. Here at Kew Forest Plumbing & Heating, our 86 years of plumbing NYC gives us the experience to recognize unseen problems that are creating little signs you may have started noticing. Here are 5 little signs of big problems with your plumbing NYC.
Sputtering Or ‘Screeching’ Pipes
This is typically due to air being caught in the water lines, but air is not supposed to be there. Causes could be due to an air-bleed system not performing correctly or, even more worrying, due to a crack in a pipe that could lead to a main water line break if not repaired. Take action and prevent a larger issue.
The Drip, Drip, Dripping Of A Faucet
Is is bad to ignore a slow drip. Eventually, we all become accustomed to the dripping noise, right? Wrong, a slow drip can waste hundreds of gallons of water. Use this Drip Calculator from the USGS to calculate the water wasted by dripping faucets. Moreover, what is causing the leak? Kew Forest Plumbing & Heating can find the source of the problem and fix it quickly and efficiently.
Check your faucets at home — do any of them drip? Well, maybe it’s just a small drip — how much water can a little drip waste? True, a single drip won’t waste much water. But think about each faucet in your home dripping a little bit all day long. What if every faucet in every home on your block … in your town … in your state also dripped? The drips would add up to a flood of water wasted down the drain.
Slow Drains In Sinks, Showers, And Tubs
Is the tub filling up while you shower? Does the toilet fight you every time you flush? Then you are likely experiencing clogged drains. There are products that claim to clear these clogs, but have you considered what the long-term damages caused by harsh chemicals? NYC plumbers like Kew Forest Plumbing & Heating can help you avoid costly mistakes.
From Where Did That Water Mark Come?
Have you noticed the occasional wet spot under your kitchen or bathroom sink? Is there always a drop of water on the pipe in your basement? Ignoring any leak will be bad news in the near future. Damage caused by water is often extensive and hidden and, if left ignored, costly to repair. Let a professional find the source of the leak and stop it before it leads to extensive water damage.
