Water stains are sometimes a sign of drain problems, particularly if they’re in the basement or crawlspace beneath your drain lines. You may have a large clog or damaged pipes. If your water bill suddenly increases without reason, you likely have either a water leak or need a waterline repair. When water continuously leaks over a period of time, your water usage increases and you’ll see the effects on your bill. You may also have noticed pools of water or damp spots in your yard. These areas may also smell. This can indicate wastewater leaking from your septic tank or sewer line. The water slowly rises to the surface of your yard, which makes the ground moist. Over time, small puddles may appear. If you know where your septic tank or sewer line is located, you may notice the water pools near that area.
While all of these warning signs indicate a potential problem with your plumbing, you will need a plumber to properly diagnose the issue. Our expert plumbers are here to help with round-the-clock emergency service.
