5 Less Obvious Signs You Need a Plumber


This bubbling or gurgling sound that you might hear from your toilet during a warm shower might seem negligible, but it's not. It means that the air in your plumbing system isn't able to get out and needs to go through water to ventilate properly. In this scenario, pressure is building and if you call our Reading plumbing team in time it's just a sewer line cleaning as opposed to repairs.

Your faucet won't stop dripping

These water drops might not seem like a big deal, but if you're on a water meter then you will notice the difference when you go to pay your utility bills. It's a quick fix, but don't let all your money go down the drain.

A toilet that keeps running

Often this happens because of a chain that becomes unhooked or gets in the way of your flapper's seal. If not, then call in our Reading plumbing squad because there exist a myriad of reasons this could be happening.

Flashes of cold water in your hot shower

You might think that a little bit of cold water in your hot shower is no big deal, but it's not normal. It usually means that there's a crack or leak in the tube that brings cold water into your water heater.

There are more bugs and animals attracted to your yard

If you have a leak in your sewer line, it might be difficult to notice. But the bugs and animals in your neighborhood will love the added nutrients in your soil and if you notice that they do call in your local Reading plumber.

“We would definitely recommend Jared and Essig, and will not hesitate to call again if we need any plumbing help in the future. We were lucky that it turned out to be not as serious as we had feared, and he provided an easy solution to the problem.”
