Most major plumbing issues stem out from easily fixable plumbing problems that develop with usage. Even the smallest of details can help you figure out if your plumbing system needs fixing.

Most common issues are minor leaks, unusual sounds when turning off water/heat, damp cabinets or gurgling or rocking toilets and dripping refrigerators. These all signal problems that need immediate attention.

Another easy way you can figure out hidden leaks is to check your water meter before and after a set period of time during which no water has been used (about 9 – 10 hours). If the meter changes, there’s a high chance that you might have a leak somewhere around the house.

Occasional sputtering faucets are most likely air trapped inside the pipes, but if the sputtering becomes excessive, or if it happens to different faucets around your home, there might be some problems with your plumbing system. Sputtering usually happens when you have a crack somewhere in the installation, so your first step in dealing with this problem is to call the water department and have them check the water main for cracks or breaks.

Discovering and fixing these minor plumbing problems in time will help you avoid costly repair bills down the line.
