Don’t Ignore These Plumbing Repair Warning Signs

Don't Ignore These Plumbing Repair Warning Signs | Postma Plumbing ServicesWater flooding the home isn’t the way anyone wants to find out he or she has a plumbing problem. It’s important to pay attention to early warning signs that you need a plumbing repair to fix the problem before it worsens. Gurgling water, slow-draining water, and weak water pressure are three main warning signs you need plumbing repair.

Gurgling Water

If you hear the toilet gurgle when you turn on the shower, this is a serious warning sign that you shouldn’t ignore. Your drain may be clogged as well as water possibly being trapped in the faucet. As the draining system strains for air, water is at risk of suddenly pouring into your home. We advise that you turn off the water and contact a plumber to fix the problem. Postma Heating & Cooling Inc is a plumbing company serving the Chatham-Kent area that has been in business since 1989 and is locally owned and operated. You can trust us to correctly diagnose and repair your plumbing in a timely manner.

Slow-Draining Sink or Shower

If the water in your shower or sink is slow to drain, then there’s probably something clogging your plumbing. Small bits of garbage, hair, food waste and children’s toys are possible culprits behind the clog. You won’t be able to determine what it is on your own. We have a special tool that we can use to safely dislodge clogs without damaging your pipes. Some homeowners have tried fixing clogged drains with coat hangers only to damage their pipes, so we don’t recommend this.

Weak Water Pressure

Weak water pressure often means there’s a clog in the faucet’s aerator. Some homeowners make the mistake of trying to unclog it themselves by poking something sharp inside. This can damage the inside of the faucet and cause a leak. You need to contact a professional plumber when water pressure in your home has weakened. Low water pressure can affect more than just your sink and shower; it can impact washing machines and dishwashers too.
