Having problems with your plumbing recently? Whether it’s draining too slowly or has a remarkably foul odor, calling a professional to inspect your plumbing might make it all get out of your hands.

But if you’re still hesitating to call, here are some signs from Home Alliance that you might need a plumbing inspection

1. Slow or Not Draining

An annoyingly slow drain can be irritating, especially in places we always need it, like the toilet or kitchen sink. Signs like these potentially mean clogged drains. So, even if it may have happened only a few times, scheduling a cleaning might help.

2. Foul Odor

Can’t pinpoint where the foul odor in your kitchen or bathroom is coming from? It might be because of a leaky pipe within the walls. Having the drain system inspected and fixed may eliminate the musty smell.

3. Discoloration on the walls

Another sign of leaking pipes within the walls is the discoloration of it. Check if any of the walls or ceiling shows signs of discoloration, then try to listen for any sound of running water. This can help the plumbers know where to start inspecting.

4. Decreasing Water Pressure

If you notice that the water pressure in your home is decreasing, it can be another sign of a plumbing issue. Low water pressure is an effect of leaky pipes or a more serious problem. Whether it’s only the kitchen sink or the whole house, having the low pressure checked by a professional can easily pinpoint the problem.

5. High Water Bill

Lastly, your water bill. This is one of the most noticeable signs that you need a plumbing inspection. If your bill is significantly higher than the last one, but your water usage is low, this indicates issues with your plumbing. This could be especially true if your water bills go up when you’re out on vacation with no one home. Call a professional to help you solve this problem.
