When plumbing services become necessary

January 4, 2021
A plumber is one of the most important people that you’ll need to call to maintain your home.

Sudden increase in water bill

While you can never predict the exact amount your bill should be, it pays to check for sudden spikes in your monthly water bill. When the amount from month to month rapidly increases, you may have a leak in your plumbing system. Instead of relying on guesswork, get in touch with a plumber in the local area. At Aspen Mountain Plumbing, we have the tools, the skills, and the experience to get the job done.

Water pooling in the yard

If you notice water is starting to pool in your yard, and there’s no rain or any other reason that it should be there, contact your plumber immediately. The presence of water could mean that there’s a problem with your water line. Consider this a plumbing emergency, and reach out to your plumber so that the problem can be fixed before it becomes a huge one.

Pests are suddenly around

Another sign that you can have a serious plumbing issue is the sudden appearance of water-loving pests like water bugs, and vermin. If you suddenly notice these pests invading your space, and there isn’t any construction nearby or any reason for them to be there, contact your plumber so that they can come out to take a look.

Strong smells coming from faucets or pipes

If you notice strong smells coming from inside your bathroom or utility room, you could have a blockage or clogged pipe issue. When pipes are clogged, food and waste is not able to travel through them and into the sewer. The food and waste that isn’t able to flow through the pipe start to deteriorate, resulting in a bad smell. Let a plumber from Aspen Mountain Plumbing check your home’s plumbing fixtures and pipes to determine the cause of the issue precisely. We will then recommend the best course of action to take.

Change in vegetation

You may notice that certain parts of your yard have suddenly gotten extremely green. If you notice any sort of change in your vegetation, reach out to a plumbing company so that they can come out and take a look. Leaks underground could cause water to seep up to the surface, causing sudden growth in the vegetation at the surface. It may be strange to think that green grass could be a sign of something bad, but it makes total sense when you think about it. The exposed waste underground is acting as fertilizer for your grass and flowers.

“Earlier this week, our sewer backed up in our basement. Lance and Matt came and snaked the drain (more than once to correct the issue which ended up being tree roots) and were able to give me recommendations on further prevention and long term solutions. I've also used Aspen Mountain Plumbing several times whenever I've had issues with my rental properties. They are very professional and always show up when they say they are going to and do a great job. I would definitely recommend these guys!” - Emily L.
