7 Common Plumbing Issues

Are you looking for a few proactive ways to avoid common plumbing issues? Good idea.

Being proactive when it comes to your plumbing can be extremely beneficial as it can help you avoid the many potential plumbing issues that can happen in your home. Some plumbing repairs come at a steep price. This makes it cost-efficient for you to do whatever is possible to avoid having to deal with any plumbing problems before they arise. The following is a list of seven of the most common plumbing issues homeowners experience.

Dripping faucets

A dripping faucet is not only annoying, but the constant slow trickle of water can lead to a higher water bill. While fixing a dripping faucet usually requires a replacement of washers, some faucets are more complex and require a professional plumbers assistance.

Leaky pipes

A leaky pipe or two can be a problem as the leaking water can easily cause damage to your floors, ceiling and furniture. Since pipes are hidden inside walls, a plumber is needed to find and fix any leaks. Be on the lookout for water spots on your ceiling as this is a common sign of a leak.

Running toilets

A running toilet means a good deal of water is going to waste, which leads to a higher water bill. It is usually an easy fix that requires replacing a flap or other malfunctioning part.

Slow drains

Over time, it can be easy for drains to become clogged due to everything that is poured down them, such as hair, soap and shampoo and food particles. To fix this issue, you can try using a draining cleaning product to dissolve the buildup. Contact a plumber to clean your drains if that option does not work.

Low water pressure

When you experience low water pressure, it is often due to a buildup of deposits within the pipes. You will need to clean out your pipes to regain the proper amount of water pressure.

Not enough hot water

When a household is experiencing less hot water than usual, it is often a sign that the water heater is in need of repair. A professional should always handle any residential water heater problems.

Broken garbage disposal

A broken garbage disposal can make quite the mess! Try removing the jam and resetting the garbage disposal. If this does not fix the problem, then call a plumber to inspect the unit.
