Little hot water
When we think of plumbing, we think of water. So adequate plumbing must equal adequate water right?
That’s exactly right. This means, if your water is running into troubles such as a lack of hot water running through your either your tap or shower, this may be a sign to call your local plumber to check it out.
The reasons pertaining to your lack of hot water could be many as the intricacies of your plumbing is vast. One of the most common reasons include the fact that your water heating system may be failing to warm the water up hence, why you are running into the issue.
So if this is happening on a recurring basis, this is good to keep in mind the next time you contact a plumber. If you are having this issue in the Auckland region, read here if you’d like it fixed ASAP.
Insufficient water pressure
I had this problem for years on end without knowing I needed a plumber for my house.
The problem started with the shower and the cause was as you might have guessed, not enough pressure for the water. Instead, I had received a shower with substantially less water than what I had wanted for years on end without realising it was a problem in the first place.
This problem doesn’t have to occur in the shower. It could occur in your sink, bath, taps, or anywhere which requires a reasonable amount of water pressure. If you are noticing this problem on a recurring basis, calling on a plumber might be the correct decision to make in this situation.
Water that smells bad
Water shouldn’t really smell like anything, Water should just smell odourless.
However, if you noticed that your water is started to present itself with an odour that seems out of the ordinary, or disgusting, maybe it’s time to re-evaluate whether you want to continue using that water.
We all want to ensure our water smells odourless so take the time to evaluate if your water is presenting a foul odour.
Water that isn’t as clear as it used to be
Water that isn’t as clear as it used to be is a sure-fire issue with your plumbing system.
Water as we know it, is usually clear.
However, the water you may be receiving could present itself in a form which may look downright disgusting or, even different shades of colour altogether.
Different colours also can give you an idea of the underlying cause. For example, a brown colour present in your water mater may represent a rust in your pipes. Whereas, a green colour may be represent the fact the pipes have corroded.
In conclusion, calling a plumber in an urgent situation such as the water not working at all is crucial. We all know that.
Equipping yourself with the knowledge to know when your water has gone bad in a situation where many people may not notice is something different all together.
For some people, little hot water running may feel like the norm (which I felt for a long time). Or, you may have been in a situation where the water pressure for your particular household has the potential to be much more quicker without you realising.
All these signs can easily be missed by the majority. We hope you’ve found yourself in the minority and know when to call a plumber if need be.
