Are you the first person to admit that you often leave problems in your home to grow and grow before you take too much notice? It has to cause a severe delay to your daily schedule for you to take note, but there are certain things that you should simply never ignore, especially when it comes to plumbing which you really should consult a plumber right away. Whether you’re undertaking some home renovations, or trying to stay on top of general home maintenance, you should always be aware of when to consult a plumber right away.

Looking out for the signs and being aware of how a plumber can help you will help you to keep your plumbing system in check and your home a safe place to live.


Even though you may be able to tighten certain areas here and there, it’s not normal to experience regular leaks in your home. If this keeps happening in your household, you may need to contact an emergency plumber to diagnose the deeper problem. You don’t want to cause any damage to your water supply, so it’s always better to deal with the problem efficiently and find the root of the issue.


When your water pressure goes up and down it can often be a sign of some sort of plumbing failure. You don’t need to put up with these unpredictabilities in your home, so why not consult a professional and get it fixed right away? Varying water pressure could be caused by clogged faucets or something else, but you may not be able to see the issue yourself.


Unpleasant smells need to be taken care of as soon as possible as this can be an indicator of a sewer problem. Call a plumber immediately if you start to notice any foul smells and they will be able to tackle the issue before it affects other areas of your home.


If your water is a rusty color it may be a sign that some of your pipes need to be replaced. In some cases it may be that your water heater is getting in the way of your water supply, which can be seen to and diagnosed by a professional plumber.


If you suspect that your pipes have become frozen, it’s always best to get a plumber to check out the problem sooner rather than later. Although it is possible to deal with frozen pipes yourself, it is a good idea to call out a professional to help. If you hit the pipes you may cause cracks or damage to your pipes.


When your water starts to drain slowly down the bathroom or kitchen sink, you may think that it’s a simple fix that a bottle of bleach can sort out. However, you may be making the problem worse if you don’t get your drains assessed by a professional. You don’t want to cause long term damage to your pipes so it’s important to call out a plumber and get them to diagnose the issue.

Hopefully, if you come across any of these signs you will have a plumber on speed dial right away. Once a professional is in control of the situation they will be able to find a safe way to deal with the problem so that it doesn’t become a bigger issue in your household.
