#1 Blocked drains
Due to everyday use, clogs, blockages, leaks, and other complications can add to the stress placed on your pipes and the plumbing system. Hence, drain cleaning is an essential part of having a smooth-running plumbing system and a reliable Adelaide blocked drain plumber can help keep yours in good condition. If you are experiencing frequently blocking drains then it is the most apparent sign that your drains need professional cleaning. Pooling of water, an overflowing toilet, and slow draining water are all signs indicating you need to act fast! Due to the build-up of food scraps, grease, fat, soap, hair, scum, and oils the inner walls of kitchen drains clog up causing an unwanted blockage eventually. Similarly, a blocked bathroom drain is a messy problem as damage caused by hair, debris, grime, soap, toothpaste, cosmetics, and other bathroom products can lead to stubborn clogs, if not cleaned regularly.
#2 Main Sewer Backing-up
Have you noticed slow drains, clogged toilet or is sewage backing up in your toilet? This is a signal that your main sewer line could be clogged. To prevent this from happening, practice toilet hygiene and don’t flush anything but toilet paper down your toilets. Don’t put diapers, sanitary products, foreign materials, grease, fat, oils, or food scraps in your drain. If you insist on doing DIY then do not use drain cleaners, as the chemicals in these cleaners corrode your pipes. Lastly, be careful about tree roots that may be near your sewer line causing your sewer to be backing up. Have a blocked drain plumber inspect and repair any minor or major issues to prevent bigger problems with your sewer causing flooding and devastating damage to your property.
#3 Water Leaks
Small water leaks can go undetected for months as the signs are too subtle for any homeowner to detect. If you have experienced any of the following, we recommend contacting an Adelaide plumbing specialist to further investigate and detect the exact issue to locate the leak before it escalates and becomes a major plumbing emergency. The chances of having a water leak on your property are extremely high if:
- Your water bill is higher than usual.
- You can hear flowing or running water even though you aren’t using any appliances, taps or showers.
- You have spotted water stains, peeling paint or dampness on your walls or roof.
- Spotted soft, muddy patches in your garden.
- Growth of mould in any area of your house.
These tell-tale signs indicate a water leak or burst pipe. Some leaks are apparent while often a leak could be hidden and growing. Water leaks can occur about anywhere within the plumbing system – behind the walls, in the ceiling of townhouses and two storey homes, or underground. Worried you may have a leak?
