“Pipes That Are Discolored
First, it’s possible that you have spotted discolored pipes around the property. These pipes could be underneath the kitchen sink or running through the basement. If there are signs of discoloration around the union then this is going to be a clear sign that moisture is present around this area.
Odor From The Sewers
If you do notice that your home is starting to develop a foul stench then this does point to an issue with the drains that you will likely need to address. It could be a problem with the dry trap or you might have a cracked sewer vent. This will need a professional repair as it will be difficult to pinpoint where exactly the problem is.
Weak Water Flow
You might also find that there is an issue with leak water flow in multiple areas of your home. If this is an issue, then it’s possible that there’s a problem with the faucet aerator. The good news is that unlike other problems on this list, this issue is quite easy to address and sort out without too much trouble.”
