Troubleshooting Water Lines

Have you noticed recently that your home’s water pressure has dropped? You could have a clog somewhere, and unless it gets fixed, things will only get worse. Trying to unclog your water lines yourself can be an impossible task. Instead you’re much better off getting some help from a professional plumbing company in Maryland. At Michael Runk Plumbing and Heating, we’ve worked with a lot of homeowners and wanted to take some time today to talk about a few signs you may have an issue with your water line and how you can troubleshoot them.

Changes In Your Water Pressure

One of the first things you’ll notice when having an issue with your home’s water lines is a decrease in water pressure. Even minor clogs/leaks can lead to noticeable decreases in water pressure. If your pressure has decreased, you should have your plumbing system inspected by a professional plumbing company.

An Increase In Your Water Bill

If your water bill has recently gone up and you haven’t been using any extra water, it could be because of an issue in your line somewhere. Even just a minor leak can lead to a noticeable increase in your bill. If your bill has increased recently, get into contact with a professional plumber in Maryland.

A Change In Your Water’s Appearance

Your water should be clear as long as your filtration system is working properly, but if your water changes colors, it could be because of contaminants. If your water is normally fine but has recently changed, we recommend you stop drinking it for some time, as the contaminants could be harmful.
