Leaking pipes, blocked drains, or overflowing sinks in the kitchen is quite normal these days. However, if overlooked, they can be nightmares for every house owner. One cannot say when the lines are going to leak, the tap starts malfunctioning, or the faucets stop working. However, before they start giving problems, these items provide some signals. 

In such cases, one should consider it high time to call a plumber and rectify the defects or address them. 

The warnings to pay heed 

There are several warnings to pay heed to and call a plumber to rectify the issues and discuss the top seven that should never be ignored.

  • Drop-In Water Pressure – If you experience a drop in water pressure while using the faucet, the aerator is probably malfunctioning. A minor clog in the aerator prevents the water from coming out having proper pressure. It is time to replace the faucet or clean the holes of the aerator with a sharp object. Trying to clean the holes with DIY techniques can increase the size of the holes and can even drop the pressure more without giving a streamlined flow. In such cases, calling in a plumber is highly advised.
  • The Sink Is Overflowing Or Draining Slowly – The overflowing of sinks is one of the significant issues in every kitchen when we talk about plumbing-related problems. Using a plunger might work, but most of the time, the pipes are not cleared entirely using them. It is best to take professional help and get the drain cleaned with special tools like a drain snake and many more. 
  • To Stop Gurgling Of Water – If the water in the supply pipe starts gurgling after opening the tap or the faucet, there is something wrong in the pipeline. It signifies that there is a lack of air inside the pipeline, and hence it is gurgling. It may also happen when the drain is clogged, or the air pipe is blocked. Call a professional expert and rectify the defects. Otherwise, it may cause damages to other areas of the property, including the walls. 
  • No Water Is Coming Out Of The Tap – If no water comes out of any tap or faucet in the house, it is a serious problem. For example, the supply pipe may have been blocked, the main valve has malfunctioned, or the main supply line has a deep underground leakage. One should immediately call a plumber and address the issue and get the standard supply of water. 
  • Water is not heating up – Old water heaters or geysers often fail to work, and water does not heat up. There is a steady flow of water from the heater, but it is cold. It is time to replace the heater, which the best expert professional can do in the area. Take the services immediately as hot water is needed for many things including washing the clothes.
  • The flush doesn’t stop running – The malfunctioning of flush is one of the most significant issues in plumbing-related problems. The ball valves in the cistern and the flush malfunction many times. One may have flushed some hours ago, but water keeps on flowing. It is time to rectify the defects immediately, taking professional help else the water bill will rise considerably. 
  • The basement turns soggy – If your basement turns soggy with or without rain, there is a problem with the drainage line. Water is leaking from somewhere in the drainage pipe. Call a plumber to pinpoint the leakage location and get it rectified.
