How Do You Know if You Need Plumbing Repairs?
There are a few tell-tale signs that your home plumbing needs some work.
Anytime you notice any leaks, old or damaged pipes, drain blockages, strange sounds and odors from piping, or any damp stains, call Chapman right away.
The longer you leave a problem, the more likely it is to get worse. It may impact more and more areas in your home, and ultimately cost you more money to fix. An unattended to plumbing issue can also become very inconvenient as some facilities may no longer work, and you can’t go about your daily life as usual.
Here’s what to look out for:
Strange Sounds Coming From the Pipes
Shuddering and unusual noises coming from the pipes are an indication something is wrong. Whatever the case may be, it is best to get the problem attended to as soon as you can.
Pipes Are Frozen
Frozen pipes can crack and burst. Call an expert to defrost them before they break.
Faucets Constantly Dripping
A dripping tap can be very irritating, and it can push up your water bill and waste gallons of water. This should be a relatively simple problem to fix, but it’s important you get it done sooner rather than later.
Water pipes are fitted with silicone-based or rubber washers to prevent leaks. Over time these can perish and stop working efficiently. They usually need to be replaced, and any pipe joints fitted and appropriately tightened.
Leaks Are Present
If you find leaks anywhere on the inside or outside of your Fortville home, call us quickly!
A leak from the ceiling can be particularly unnerving – this could be coming from the roof, which will need to be patched quickly. Leaks are also dangerous as they could affect your electrical wiring and cause injury.
If you notice strange, unpleasant smells anywhere in your house, you may well have a water leak. Stain marks often accompany these odors on walls, ceilings, or floors. Stains are another sign that there is a water leakage problem and that it may have been there for some time.
If you notice either one or both, you need to have the problem sorted by immediately stopping the leak at its source and replacing or repairing spoiled materials.
Odd smells and stains could also be caused by mold or mildew, which can be damaging to your family’s lungs.

Frozen Pipes – Indiana’s harsh winter can destroy your pipes if you don’t properly plan ahead for the frigid temperatures. Leave a steady trickle of water running in your kitchen and bathroom sinks. This will reduce the pressure in your pipes, keeping them from freezing and cracking.
Replacing Pipes – Scale buildup from hard water reduces water flow through pipes and is a poor conductor of heat. Eventually, pipes can become completely clogged. If you have scaly, white deposits in sink basins or on fixtures in your bath or kitchen, a water softener will help improve your water quality.
Concrete Slab Leaks – Concrete slabs leave no room for shortcuts or quick fixes. Repairing plumbing within a concrete slab is expensive, time-consuming and can happen any time of year. Expect any damage in your slab to take at least a week’s worth of inspection and labor to be completed.
Leaky Pipes – Notice a leak under your kitchen sink? Don’t wait until it’s too late to contact a plumber. Early leak detection can mean the difference between a $5 repair and a $5,000 repair.
Faucets – Hard water can gum up the inner workings of your faucet, causing clogs and other problems that will cost hundreds of dollars in plumbing repair.
Showerheads – Hard water can damage showerheads slowly over time because of the buildup of lime and calcium, which will cause low water pressure. You will need to use a harsh chemical solvent to get rid of mineral scaling or replace the pipes completely.
Bathroom Remodels/Shower Pans – Freestanding showers, especially in older homes and apartment complexes, often feature fiberglass showers pans. Over time these pans will crack due to water pressure and hard water buildup.
Toilets – If you have an older style toilet, we believe most of them can be effectively repaired. If your toilet is constantly clogging or flushing slowly, it might be time to invest in a new one.
Sump Pump – Sump pumps are crucial to keeping basements dry. If you leave your sump pump unchecked you could be left with thousands of dollars in flood damage.
Hot Water Heaters – We offer a variety of tankless and standard water heaters. We can replace your current system with a similar model or we can discuss energy savings options.
Water Softener – A water softener will help decrease the amount of calcium and magnesium in your water and keep your dishes and plumbing in great shape.
Garbage Disposal – A clogged garbage disposal is a common household issue that can easily be resolved with the help of a trained plumber. We offer disposals ranging from the most basic to units that are very quiet and come with extended warranties.
