Published On: July 15, 2016Categories: Plumbing


We can all agree plumbing is a topic that often gets overlooked until something goes wrong. However, when something does go wrong a bit of panic sets in regarding how to handle the problem. It is important to take action immediately for many plumbing problems. Ignoring the problem will almost always lead to worse issues, which is never fun to deal with.

No Hot Water

Hot water is very important in every household for hot showers, laundry, and running the dishwasher. If you notice that your hot water isn’t working, you should act quickly.

Give us a call as soon as you notice this problem and we would be more than happy to take a look at your hot water heater and fix the problem efficiently and in a timely manner.

Water Stains

If you see water stains on your walls or ceiling, you’ll want to investigate them fast and have an experienced plumber observe the stains. The stains could be a sign of a leak between your walls or behind the plumbing fixtures in your home.

If left alone, the stains could lead to the very serious problems of mold and mildew. Water stains definitely should not be left ignored.

Leaky Faucet

There’s nothing more annoying than the the “drip, drip, drip” sound of a leaky faucet. While it can be easy to ignore this issue, you should take care of the leak sooner rather than later. The leak will not only waste water and increase your water bill, but it is also a sign that your tap most likely needs to be repaired.

If you aren’t sure how to take care of the leak yourself, let us know!

Continuous Sound of Running Toilet

Notice the sound of your toilet continuously running? Not only is this an unenjoyable sound, but it will also hurt your water bill. This is an issue that you should be sure to get checked out as soon as possible.

Most likely, an internal component is malfunctioning and a plumber will be able to repair this problem for you.

Debris Coming Out of Tap

If you see debris coming out of your water tap, your plumbing could be deteriorating. A common place where you might notice this is the tap to your bathtub. Only notice the debris in one area? You probably just need a new fixture.

If you notice debris in multiple areas, you’ll want to notify a professional.

While plumbing issues may not be your top priority, it is important to get them taken care off quickly and properly. If you are ever experiencing any problem, do not hesitate to reach out to The Waterw
