Excellent quality of service. This is who you should call. Mike Morse
With the whole family home more often due to Covid-19, it’s obvious that you’re running the dishwasher, flushing toilets, and (hopefully) washing hands more often. Now that warmer weather is setting in, you’ll also be using more water for outdoor chores and summer fun. But if you notice your water bill seems to have skyrocketed in the past month or so, it’s worth it to consider investigating reasons why — and decide if it’s time to call a plumber.
Here are some reasons why a water bill could go up.
If you can attribute extra water use to normal increase for having more people in the home and doing normal summer things, you can probably wait until next month and see if your water bill continues to rise. If you notice leaks, dripping faucets or running toilets, call Putman Plumbing to fix the problem. We can also check to see if there are hidden leaks you can’t find such as in underground pipes. If we don’t notice any plumbing problems and you haven’t been using extra water, call the Department of Public Works in Middletown, Frederick, or wherever you live. The city will send someone out to check the meter and see if they can determine the problem.
Whether you have a toilet that’s constantly running, a faucet that keeps dripping, or a broken sump pump, we’d love to help. We promise to make your plumbing problem our priority!
