Some homeowners might think, “Oh, it’s just a little water spot, it’s no big deal.” Unfortunately, the physics of the wear and tear on plumbing systems is very real.

So let’s go over these warning signs of upcoming repairs that if you fix now, will save you big bucks later.

Cost of Wasting Water Going Up?
Could be you have a water leak. Notice an area on your lawn greener and faster growing than the rest? A constant drip or even stream of water will show up on your water bill.
Do you notice any Wall Damage?
The lines connecting your plumbing system also run behind your walls. If you see a moistened spot, it’s likely a leak. Worst case scenario is a complete pipe burst which usually looks like completely moistened drywall, for example.
If you see any water damage or feel there’s a leak, call the emergency plumbers at Rocket Plumbing in Chicago and Dupage County. We can use our camera technology to scope it out right away to assess the situation and if needed, we can conduct your plumbing repair to avoid any additional damage.
Do you notice any Fixture Damage?
Water and ,moisture leaking in the wrong place in your plumbing system could damage the plumbing fixtures themselves. Shower heads, faucets and the like can all take water damage on the exterior connections like rust, calcium buildup, mold build up. A rotted gasket, for example, could become fixed in the plumbing pipes or lower your water pressure. A repair plus the fixture replacement can be avoided.
Gravity forces water downhill, which makes our floors the most likely place to find warning signs. Gauge how expensive this could be to you depending on how much you have invested in your homes flooring. Warped and discolored floorboards and/or detached tiles can hit at a need for a water leak detection inspection.
A Costly Compounding Factor: Mold Issues
The Discoloration you see in walls and floors could be mold, a costly problem. Mold can cause serious health issues so don’t postpone looking at any moisture signals we’ve mentioned above.
What Do You Do If You Smell A Gas Leak?
Don’t panic. Explosions from gas leaks are RARE! The tool to prevent such an extreme result are right there built into your home, and we can help. First thing to do is shut off the source of Gas into your system. Don’t hesitate to call Rocket Plumbing to help coach you through finding the valve.
Once the gas has been shut off and dissipates, we can safely establish where the gas leak is, whether it is a pin hole in a pipe or a worn out connection.
