It can sometimes be difficult to determine if you have an actual plumbing problem or if your plumbing is just acting abnormally. There is a subtle but significant difference between those two situations. If your pipes are loud because they are getting old, that’s not an indication that you necessarily have a problem with your pipes. Alternately, if you have loud pipes, that could be an indication that something has come loose and could be leaking inside of your walls. There are some subtle things to look and listen for to determine if you’re having some kind of plumbing emergency.
Multiple Drains Blocked
Water comes into your home through a water main; it then branches to all of your different fixtures. Finally, the wastewater leaves your home through multiple drains that re-collect into a sewer main. So, if you have one blocked drain, you likely have a problem with your drain pipe. However, if multiple drains are clogged, that indicates the problem is farther down in the sewer main. You need to address such an issue quickly before it becomes a serious problem. East Sussex plumbers can find the root of the problem and handle it before it grows. Sewer main problems often result in your entire garden being trenched.
Weak Water Pressure
If you have weak water pressure in one fixture, it could be the result of some kind of blockage in the pipes that is disrupting the water flow. However, if you have weak water flow in multiple fixtures, that’s a sign that something has gone wrong. It could be a problem with your water main.
