As a responsible homeowner, one of your most important responsibilities is to make sure that your water and drain lines are working perfectly and free from leaks or any defects. A defective water pipeline can cause a lot of problems including flooding, growth of molds and deterioration of affected areas that are made of wood. A faulty drain line, on the other hand, can trigger sewage problems which can pose as a threat to your family’s health.

Problems concerning your drain or water lines usually appear as leaks, clogs or any other problem that affects the normal function of your water supply and septic systems. The best way to solve a plumbing problem is to call a professional plumbing and heating Denver contractor. But how will you know when to call a plumber?

Here are several signs that will let you know that your drain or water line is in need of a plumber:

  1. Consistent or Recurring Clogs
    There are times when the drain line of your septic system may clog. This is not a big deal if the issue disappears with the use of a plunger. But if the clog happens repeatedly, you certainly have a problem on your hands. In this case, you will need the help of Denver plumbing and heating specialists.
  2. Low/Insufficient Water Pressure
    Pressure is a necessity to allow water to flow through your homes pipes. If this is an issue in your home, you must call your city’s water supplier to let them know that they have a problem to trace. If there’s no problem with the main line, you’ll need a plumber to trace the defect within your home’s plumbing system.
  3. Leaks
    Leaks should be addressed promptly because they can cause inconvenience, water waste, and added costs. Additionally, they expose your home to water damage and growth of molds which can trigger allergic reactions in some people.
  4. Hot Water is not Available
    If water is available from the cold tap but nothing comes out from the hot, your water heater is obviously having some issues. Have this addressed by a professional; they have the tools and skills to solve this problem.
  5. Sewer Odors
    The smell of raw sewage will serve as your signal that something is wrong with your drain line. Leaking sewage is a potential health hazard that you must address at once. It often creates smelly standing water which also attracts pests, or triggers the growth of mold, especially in areas that are not reached by sunshine such as a basement. If you see these signs somewhere near your drain line, you should call a competent Denver plumbing and heating service to have the problem addressed accordingly.
    Plumbing problems can happen but you can avoid them with regular maintenance and by having issues resolved right at their onset. This prevents minor defects from blowing up into costly repair jobs.
