When Plumbing Noises Are Serious!
Your plumbing may make noises all the time. Many homeowners just get used to the sounds that their system makes and don’t even think about them anymore. However, some plumbing noises can indicate a problem in the system. While the problems may not seem urgent because there’s not a plumbing emergency, they all indicate issues that can get worse over time if you leave them unrepaired.
Here are some sounds you might be hearing and what they mean for your system:
Do you hear a bubbling or even a gurgling sound when you flush your toilet or drain water down your sink? This can indicate several issues:
- A bubbling sink drain
- Air trapped in your pipes
- An untreated clog
- A sewer problem
Even if you have experienced these bubbles as long as you’ve lived in your home, they can indicate a problem that’s getting worse over time. Call us and we’ll get to the bottom of the issue, then repair it for you fast!
Do your pipes whine or squeak when you use your water? Maybe it just happens when you use one set of pipes, like the ones in your kitchen or an upstairs bathroom. High-pitched sounds coming from your plumbing usually mean a broken or defective pressure-reducing valve.
Depending on when your home was built, you may have one valve for the whole house or different ones for the bathroom, kitchen, or other area of your home. Over time, leaving these broken can cause:
- Burst pipes
- And more
Even a slow drip can indicate a leak, and leaks can be costly. In fact, even a slow leak can raise your water bill significantly, and that’s outside of the cost of treating and repairing water damage. The sound of water dripping can also drive you crazy! If you are struggling with a drip that you can’t fix, give our Austin plumbers a call. We’ll find the source of the leak and treat it before it gets bigger and causes serious damage to your home.
