When is it time to get your home’s plumbing checked out? With most of the pipes and inner workings of your home’s fixtures hidden out of sight, it can be difficult to tell without the trained eye of an Apex plumber. Luckily, whether it’s a slow-draining sink or a clogged toilet, your home’s plumbing has ways of letting you know it needs help before bigger problems arise. When your plumbing gives you a sign, don’t hesitate to call Apex Plumbing Solutions in Danville. We’ve got emergency plumbers at the ready 24 hours a day. Here are four signs you need to call a plumber.

Your Water Bill Spikes Unexpectedly

Leaks can be hard to detect, especially if the leak is coming from a pipe within the walls of your house. However, any leak within your system will make itself immediately known on your water bill, in the form of mysterious, significant increases in your total water usage and accompanying charges. If your bill suddenly spikes, it’s a good sign that there’s a leak somewhere in your plumbing. Call our Danville plumbers ASAP; you’d be surprised how fast a small drip-drip-drip can add up if left alone for an entire month.

Your Shower Takes Forever To Heat Up

The discomfort of standing in a cold shower can cause some of us to overestimate the time that we are suffering through frigid water, but if you know that your shower takes a long time to heat up, that can be a sign of an issue with the thermostat or the heating element in your water heater. It could also be a sign of sediment accumulation in the bottom of the tank. Regardless, water heaters are nothing to mess around with, and you should call a plumber if you’re experiencing issues with yours. Apex Plumbing Solutions in Danville specializes in the installation, repair, and replacement of water heaters, and we’d be happy to get you a free quote on your issue.

Your Sink, Tub Or Shower Are Draining Too Slowly

Slow-developing clogs that sap your sink’s ability to drain can be tempting to ignore if you don’t use the affected fixture very often, but it is imperative to address them quickly. If left unchecked, the clog could get worse and move further down the drain line. Even quick-fix solutions like chemical drain cleaners are only a temporary fix. You can try to tackle the problem yourself with a rooter or a plumber’s drain snake, but you risk dislodging parts inside your drain if you’re not careful. It’s best to get the trained hands of a plumber to help.

There’s A Problem You Don’t Understand

Most importantly, if your fixtures are operating oddly or experiencing issues you can’t explain, don’t hesitate to call a plumber. Modern plumbing is complicated, and DIY solutions you’ll find elsewhere online can’t always be trusted. When you’re sick, you go to the doctor. Why should your plumbing be treated any differently?
