Plumbing Warning Signs

We have provided a checklist for you to inspect your home. Discovering these plumbing warning signs early can prevent a plumbing flood, if you take immediate action and contact Karl’s Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling without delay. 

Routine Problems That Cause Problems

  • P-Traps P-traps are the most common areas in the kitchen to cause a catastrophe. Check out your sink drain at least every six months. When you change the clocks in the spring and fall, check your P-Traps. If the sink drains slowly or a leak is under your sink, give Karl’s a call so that an expert plumber can prevent a major sink disaster. Home remedies for clearing minor clogs are an option if the clog is just beginning. However, it is always a good idea to have an expert check out your drains at least once a year.
  • Faucets Kitchen faucets are the source of many residential plumbing problems. Leaky faucets cause annoying drips, a waste of water, and an increase in your water bill. Checking the faucet regularly for leaks can put cash back in your wallet. If you spot a leaky faucet, give Karl’s a call so that a plumbing specialist can be dispatched to fix the leaky faucet right away. 


The dishwasher is one of the handiest appliances in the kitchen until it causes a kitchen catastrophe! One of the worst dishwasher problems is a drain clog. If your dishwasher is not draining properly after the wash or rinse cycle, you might need to give Karl’s a call. Usually dishwasher problems are not easy fixes for the homeowner, and it is important to call on a reliable and highly trained professional. Karl’s guarantees that all of their employees are highly skilled and effective workers that will do a great job for you. If your kitchen or bathroom plumbing is causing problems, be sure to give Karl’s a call.
