1.Pipes That Go Bump in The Night
Are strange noises keeping you up at night? The haunting sounds of your pipes banging, and rattling are scary for more than one reason. When you hear your pipes making strange noises it may be a warning sign that something is seriously wrong. Something could be loose, or your water pressure may be too high.
As a worst case scenario, loose pipes can cause flooding in your home among other things and you should have them fixed ASAP to avoid a real Halloween plumbing nightmare. Find out the cause of those spooky noises by giving us a call on 503-607-7242 or email us email@example.com
2. Hubble, bubble toil and trouble; Pumpkin carving and drains will bubble…
Trouble is right… pumpkin pulp and seeds are not meant for your sink, bath, shower, or toilet. If pumpkin carving is part of your Halloween plans, then it is important to stay mindful of where you choose to dispose of your goo and seeds. As you remove the insides from your pumpkins, keep the guts away from your drains. The sticky pumpkin pulp can block your sink drains and clog your toilet. The guts may seem soft, but they can harden in your pipes and cause a Halloween plumbing nightmare.
3. Beware of leaky taps…
Frightening enough, a leaky tap could be a sign of potential underlying problems with your plumbing system. But that isn’t the scariest thing about a leaky tap. . . According to National Geographic leaks contribute to about 14% of our average water use each day. Which means the (short term) scariest thing about a leaky tap is all the money you might be wasting on your water bill. Even small and slow leaks add up. Have a professional fix your leaky tap and stop your money from going down the drain.
Seriously though, we’re all now much more aware of the environmental damage wasting water can cause. Don’t have that waste on your conscience and fix those leaks!
4. Scary Smells…
Unpleasant smells are one of the most common plumbing problems. Of course, lots of different things can cause these smells. If a garbage odor is coming from your garbage disposal, drain, sink, or bathtub, then you might have a clog or another pipe issue. Have your plumber come to the look. Just know that other odors can be caused by a more serious problem. If you smell gas, skip the plumber and call your utility company right away. These leaks can be life-threatening if not treated.
