Signs Your Home Might Have a Plumbing Problem

August 31, 2022 | Blog

Some problems are more obvious than others, but any problem, big or small, can negatively affect your entire plumbing system. Knowing how to identify plumbing issues is critical. Bud Anderson Home Services has compiled a list of the most common signs of plumbing problems.

Whether you’re facing a broken pipe, a leaking fixture, or a clogged drain, our professionals can help.

Call (479) 927-2700 or contact us online to schedule your service.

There’s No Hot Water

If your water heater produces little to no hot water, or you frequently run out of hot water, there’s a problem. Your water heater may need repairs, or you may not have the right sized unit for your home’s needs. Our professionals can assess your system to identify any required repairs or recommend replacement.

Your Water Pressure Is Unusually Low

Low water pressure, especially sudden, can indicate several problems with your system. If the low water pressure comes from a single faucet, you likely have a dirty or clogged aerator. However, if you notice low water pressure from several or all of your fixtures, there could be a bigger problem, like a broken pipe in your foundation or walls.

Water Is Draining Slowly or Not at All

You likely have a clogged drain if your tub, shower, sink, or toilet isn’t draining well. While clogs aren’t uncommon, they can wreak havoc on the rest of your system. At Bud Anderson, we offer drain cleaning and camera inspection services to assess and address any clog, big or small. Using the industry’s latest tools, our plumber can locate even the most hidden clogs and restore the flow of your drains.

Faucets Won’t Stop Dripping

A dripping faucet or pipe might not seem like a big deal beyond its annoyance, but any leak can cost you dearly. Not only can leaks waste over 500 gallons of water each year, but they can also lead to mold, pests, and water damage.

Water Is Pooling in Your Yard

Anytime you notice unexpected standing water in your yard, it’s time to call a plumber. Puddling water or a section of especially lush grass in your yard is typically a result of problems with the main water line, sewer line, or a leak in your home’s foundation.

You Notice Water Stains on Ceiling or Walls

If you suddenly notice staining on drywall, you need to call a plumber immediately. Water damage can quickly become a mold problem, which is extremely expensive to remediate. Water stains are commonly caused by broken or leaking pipes in a home’s walls, floors, or ceiling. It’s crucial that you address water stains as soon as you see them.

What Our Customers Say

Professional Service!

Furnace went out during this ridiculous weather and Bud Anderson was the only place I could get through to. First, they made sure I had another heat source (I did) then they arrived very quickly considering the weather. Problem was solved in a timely fashion and now my wife and kids will be very happy! Very professional service!

Great Customer Service!

I called other companies; some couldn’t get me in for 2 weeks or never called back. Due to having no power in multiple outlets throughout my home, Bud Anderson was able to schedule me first thing in the morning. I like the text updates, who your Technician will be, as well as they are on their way. Dwayne was professional, knowledgeable, and explained everything. Great Customer Service skills! Thank-you~

Quick Response!

Service call scheduled and completed in a quick manner. Aaron definitely knows heating and air systems and took the time to explain the issues and come up with a maintenance plan in the future. I strongly recommend this company.
