Some plumbing problems are obvious, others not so. Health and home inspectors are experienced and well-trained experts keen at finding both. While you may be aware of certain plumbing issues such as a clogged toilet, other not-so-obvious issues could result in a citation for certain plumbing violations. A popular chain restaurant in Coweta County recently received such citations from a health inspection. Several violations were noted, including pipe leaks under the dish machine and washer sink, and mold on the drop area of the ice machine. Both were repeat violations. The local health inspector said in an interview that plumbers already submitted their estimates to fix the leaks in March, but the restaurant failed to act on them. The inspector had a plumber do the repairs immediately during this latest inspection.

Plumbers are often called in to fix a plumbing problem that no one foresaw. More often than not, however, it will be to fix something that was left to worsen. Between the two contrasts, the latter is utterly inexcusable as the cost to fix them is often considerably more than what early repair would have cost in the first place. Below are some examples of common plumbing problems that an Athens, GA homeowner may face. If you encounter any of them, it’s imperative that you call a plumber straight away. Letting such issues linger could open you up to bigger utility bills, extensive water damage and maybe even health risks—all of which can lead to substantial costs down the line.
