Most consumers can estimate their water bill amount very accurately because their usage is fairly consistent. But when you open your water bill only to discover a number that is far more than normal, your first thought is that this must be some type of error on the part of your water provider. But in most cases, this is no error. It is a reality check that is telling you to take a very close look at your home. Often, this large water bill is due to a drastic increase in your water usage. And unless you just filled a new swimming pool in your backyard, chances are, that you have a pretty major plumbing issue somewhere on your property.
Just as the name implies, a plumbing inspection is a service provided by a licensed plumber who will come to your home and inspect all of the various facets of your plumbing system. In most cases, the inspection starts at the meter coming off of the city main and continues on through your yard and home and back out to where your drain connects to the city sewer system. Most often, this is a service that is requested when you are thinking about buying a new home and want to know that the house has good plumbing, or when you are about to sell your home and want to know that there are no issues that could hold up an offer on your place.
Most homeowners are not at all familiar with all of the pipes, fittings, and fixtures that make up the plumbing system in their homes. And that is because all we really want to know is that when we turn on a faucet or shower, we are going to get water. But there can be times when your plumbing is trying to tell you something very, VERY important. And the message is that you have a leak in your home somewhere. So understanding a few simple hints can save you a great deal of time, money, and frustration.
One of many homeowners biggest complaints about their plumbing is that the water pressure seems to have dropped. In most cases the drop is significant enough to be noticed when filling a large pot for cooking, filling the bathtub, or even when showering. And the mistake that most homeowners make is deciding to just deal with the lower water pressure, thinking that it must be due to new construction in the area or something else that is not fixable. However, a call to your professional plumber can often yield very good results that will restore your water pressure.
In many situations, finding the leak in your plumbing is as simple as locating the puddle of water on the floor, the wet section of drywall or ceiling tile. But when you get a huge water bill that you can’t explain or find that your water pressure has suddenly dropped significantly, then you are likely to be facing a hidden leak. And at this point, most homeowners can only imagine a plumber going through the house with a sledgehammer knocking holes in walls, floors, and the ceiling. But rest assured, that is not how a professional plumber is going to locate a leak in your home.
The main water line or the mainline as it is sometimes called is the single water service line that carries all of the water into your home from the city water service. And while we all know that this single pipe is the only way that we get water to drink, bathe with and use for a multitude of other things, we never really stop to consider the age of the piping. It might surprise you to know that the life expectancy of this very critical pipe is as little as 40 years or as long as 80 years on average. But there is a great deal more than you should know when thinking about the main water supply line to your home.
