In the modern day, it’s almost impossible to live without plumbing. However, taking care of a plumbing system can be a stressful task when there are so many issues that can occur.
It’s important to seek help as soon as possible if you notice any problems with your water supply. Read on to find out the most common issues that can occur and what to do in an emergency

Faucets are Constantly Dripping
Not only can constantly dripping faucets cause your water bills to increase, but they can be a sign of a major issue. We definitely recommend contacting BEL-O Cooling & Heating to discover and fix the source of the problem.
Leaks are Present
A big mistake that homeowners make is to ignore small leaks. However, even if only a small amount of water is present, it can be a sign of a big problem.
Water can have disastrous effects on the structural integrity of your home – causing mold growth, wood rot, and more. When you see any sign of a leak, you must immediately contact a plumbing repair company.
Low Water Pressure
If your taps have slowed to a trickle, this is a sign of low water pressure. It is often caused by a blockage in your pipes which is preventing enough water from passing through.
Pipes are Frozen
Winters across Illinois can cause frozen pipes – with temperatures sometimes dipping far below freezing in our area. When pipes freeze, it can cause a build-up of pressure, cracking your plumbing system.
If you suspect that your pipes may be frozen, you should call for plumbing repairs as soon as possible.
No Hot Water
Water heaters are designed to give your home access to hot water. However, if your home doesn’t have any hot water, it could be a sign of an issue with the hot water heater. Schedule an appointment for water heater repair or replacement immediately to maintain comfort and safety for your family.
No water is one of the most obvious signs that you have a serious problem. Feel free to contact BEL-O for plumbing repair service if your water supply stops with no warning.
Water in Basement
Water in your basement can be a sign of a leak in your pipes or issues with water pressure. Even if there is only a small amount, you should get it repaired.
It can be difficult to know what counts as an emergency; however, if any of the following occur, you should contact a plumbing repair service immediately, no matter what time of day:
- Clogs: A clog can rapidly cause a build-up of pressure, leading to pipe ruptures and leaks.
- Frozen Pipes: When a damaged frozen pipe melts, it can cause a major leak. Get emergency repairs before this happens.
- Overflowing Toilets: Not only are overflowing toilets unpleasant, but they can cause a major health risk. Get immediate help if this occurs.
- Leaks: Fixing a leak is straightforward, but discovering why it happened requires a professional. Call on BEL-O’s emergency service to repair any severe leaks.
- Ruptures: A small rupture in your pipes can rapidly become a major issue. The faster you fix the problem, the lower the chance of damage to your property.
