Pipe Leaks or Bursts

When the cold winter months fade and the pollen shows up, it’s not unusual to realize you have leaky pipes or sudden bursts. When the ice thoroughly thaws out, it can make leaks more obvious. Or you may have had a leak for months and not realized it until you turned on your outdoor spigots again. 

Clogged Drains

Clogged drains can wreak havoc on your plumbing system and your peace of mind. However, clogs aren’t just about throwing too much food scraps, hair, and grease down your pipes. They can also form when spring rains cause debris to wash into outdoor drains. Or you may discover new roots are inviting your sewage system or pipes and causing back-ups. As a result, you’ll see more issues in your drains, sinks, showers, and bathtubs. 

Sump Pump Failures

The increased rains in spring may make your yard look stunning with new blooms, but it can also put a strain on your sump pump. If it’s not working correctly, you could see flooding in your basement. The fall-out from a broken sump pump is more than damaged floors. You could end up seeing mold in your basement, making it an urgent repair on your plumbing to-do list. 

Septic System Overflow

Septic systems can be a win for homeowners looking for a cost-effective and environmental-friendly option. Unfortunately, they’re also known for overflowing or malfunctioning from a combination of too much rain and neglect. A septic system overflow should always be treated as a plumbing emergency. Call our Marietta plumbers to get on top of the problem as quickly as possible and restore your plumbing and septic system.

Water Heater Issues

Winter months put a strain on your water heater and make your water feel lukewarm. You’re prone to using it more often during those cold mornings, or maybe you hosted company during the winter holidays. As a result, you may notice your water heater is falling and not working as efficiently as before. The issue could be anything from an aging water heater, anode rod deterioration, or sediment build-up. Call the team at Plumbers 4 Real for water heater maintenance, repair, or new installation.

Outdoor Faucet Leaks

It’s not uncommon for outdoor faucets, or hose bibs, to get damaged by freezing winter temperatures. You may notice them leaking when turned on during the first weeks of spring. This is a good time to order a new outdoor faucet cover and a back-up. If you wait until winter, you won’t find them anywhere on the shelves.

Low Water Pressure

Are you struggling with low water pressure? When Georgia’s red clay and soil shifts after an abundance of rain and root growth, you may experience issues with your main water line. All the extra rain can directly impact your water pressure and lead to costly plumbing repairs if it’s not addressed as soon as possible.
