Sure, some plumbing issues are obvious, such as a clogged drain or a leaking faucet. You don’t really need to know any “signs” of these since they’ll be apparent.

But for your hidden pipes, a leak or issue can occur and go unnoticed for a long period of time and do some damage in the meantime if you’re not attentive to your plumbing system. For these issues, there are signs you can watch out for. Read on as we uncover some of them.
