Hire a plumbing contractor to ensure that the house’s plumbing and drainage system is laid down appropriately when the house is under construction. The contractor will protect you from dealing with many issues in your plumbing and drainage system in the future. The plumbing system needs regular inspections for repair to be done on time before the situation gets worse. These are the indications that you should contact a plumber soonest.
Water pressure from the taps in your home can be inconsistent. The plumber will unblock pipes to release water. A minor clog in the faucet’s aerator will reduce water pressure because the flow of water is limited. High water pressure will also be regulated through the installation of valves in the pipes.
Gurgling sounds from the taps and pipes are caused by water being trapped by the faucets due to low water pressure. You can find yourself experiencing water shortages in the entire neighborhood if the water keeps gurgling up.
Find out if there are damp spots on the walls, ceilings or floors. Damp spots are caused by leaking pipes. Unsealed cracks will make the pipes to burst, flood your home and damage your property if the situation is not contained on time. The plumber will replace pipes that have so many cracks that cannot be sealed and seal the sealable pipes. The leaks damage the structure of your building and increase repair expenses for the walls, ceilings or floors.

Back flow of water into the house from the drainage system is alarming. You will notice a backflow of water when the water stagnates in the sinks and around other drainage areas in the house. Dirty water will cause cholera, typhoid and other diseases to your family if it water flows back into the house.
