Issues with plumbing can lead to great damage in any home, so it’s imperative they’re taken care of both efficiently and effectively. Drainage issues, for example, tend to occur spontaneously at the worst of times, so being vigilant when certain signs occur can save you a lot of time and money. After a plumber servicing all areas from Parramatta to Bondi? We’ve got you covered. If these signs occur, it’s time to give us a call.

Low water pressure

If your water suddenly starts to come out of taps slowly, whether it’s the sink, bath tap or shower, there is more than likely a drainage issue. Blocked drains are a nuisance but are usually too difficult to fix yourself, so calling a plumber is the best option.

Clogged drains can lead to further problems, so getting on top of the issue early is smart.

Your water is slow to drain

This is a big red flag and generally indicates that there is a blockage in the drain. Blocked drains also lead to problems like water spillages in your house if they are not dealt with quickly, so calling a plumber as soon as you notice the issue is the best option in this instance.

Unpleasant odours

Likely the most difficult sign to deal with, and something you’ll no doubt be looking to take care of promptly. Awful smells generally mean there’s quite a serious problem, like a bad blockage in the drain and a build-up of waste. If you notice this, call a plumber as soon as possible.

Insufficient hot water

Running out of hot water will no doubt occur if it has been used excessively, but when your hot water is not working as it should, there is a problem. It’s important to not try and fix these issues yourself, as hot water systems can be dangerous to work with. Calling a plumber in this instance is the best option.

Uncommon noises

Sudden unusual noises coming from drains and taps is quite an obvious one. If these persist, there is no doubt a problem present. Gurgling noises throughout pipes are common when there is some sort of leakage, so calling a plumber as soon as you notice this is imperative. Also, if you hear noises in the pipes while no water is being used, this is a red flag.
