You depend on your home’s plumbing system to deliver clean water and flush waste at a moment’s notice. But if one of the pipes in the plumbing system breaks, it can result in extensive damage and expensive repairs. That’s why it’s vital to schedule a repair as soon as you suspect a problem. Here are three signs you have a broken pipe in your Prattville, Alabama, home:
Water Bill is Higher Than Usual
The water rates and usage haven’t increased but your monthly water bill has. If you’re paying more for your water, it’s likely because of a broken pipe. The longer you leave a busted pipe leaking, the higher the risk of the leak becoming worse. As a result, you’ll not only continue paying more for your water but also pay more to repair the issue.
Loud Noises Near Your Water Main
The only sound you should hear near your water main is the flowing of water when someone is taking a shower, flushing a toilet or running a faucet. If no one is using the water in your home yet you still hear loud noises near the water main, there’s a problem that requires professional attention. Get it looked at right away to avoid more trouble.
Excess Moisture in Various Areas
Have you noticed puddles of water under the sinks in your home or near your water main? Maybe there are damp spots in your drywall or on your ceiling. If you see or feel excess moisture in strange spots around your home, you likely have a problem with your plumbing system. A broken pipe could be the least of your worries.
