Reichelt Plumbing has a team of licensed plumbers with the experience, knowledge, and expertise to handle any plumbing issue that comes your way.
Perform a Visual Inspection
The first step in ensuring your plumbing is ready for 2016 is to do a visual inspection of the pipes you can see. Go through your home and glance below sinks, behind toilets, and around your shower. If you notice any of the following, you need to call a plumbing professional right away:
- Bloated or discolored wood or walls
- Mold or mildew
- Leaks, puddles, or wet spots
- Dripping faucets
Check Your Water Bill
A symptom that you have a leak where you can’t see is to check your water bill. If you have a sudden increase in your monthly bill, you could have a leak. Gather the last few bills to compare. Make sure that your increase cannot be explained by increased use or a rate increase.
