Common Plumbing Problems
We’ve all experienced the annoying ‘drip, drip, drip’ of a leaky faucet. Thankfully, what often causes these common leaks is a misplaced washer or a corroded valve seat, and those are easily replaceable.
Toilets are commonly clogged by excess waste or objects blocking the toilet’s drain. Cleaning your toilet regularly will help prevent clogging and avoid plumbing repair.
Low water pressure
Low water pressure problems are usually traced back to clogged pipes. Low water pressure problems can start from the water meter valve or the main house shut-off valve only being partially opened. Hard-water buildup in pipes blocks water flow into and out of the hot water heater, resulting in low water pressure.
Continuously running toilet
A running toilet wastes an obscene amount of water and money. Toilets can waste anywhere from 30 to 500 gallons of water a day. To ensure your installation is done the right way, hire a professional plumber to put your new toilet in or to make repairs on an existing toilet.
Broken air conditioning unit
During the heat of the summer, air conditioners are tirelessly working, making them more likely to break down when we need them most. While most residential HVAC systems are not directly connected to a home’s plumbing system, air conditioning units can be affected by a faulty drain line. These fixes require the work of a professional.
Clogged drains can be caused by the buildup of minerals like calcium. A blockage can also be caused by hair, dirt, food, or skin flakes clumping together in the drain trap. Gunk can accumulate over time and significantly slow the drain of water.
Leaky pipes are a stress-inducing issue that could quickly damage your carpet, drywall, or appliances if not quickly addressed. Leaking pipes may be caused by the house settling into its foundation, high water pressure, corroded or rusty pipes, or even tree roots that have grown and displaced your water lines. Some water pipe leaks can be heard near where the water main enters your home, near the home’s main shut-off valve.
Sewer Line Repair
While sewer line issues vary, their main causes are cracked sewer pipe(s), tree roots, ground freezes, and aged pipes. Signs of a damaged sewer line are slow drainage, gurgling noises, sewage backup, and foul smells coming from your drains.
Water heater issues
Unless your A/C unit is broken in the middle of a hot summer, you probably don’t want to take a cold shower. Many of the things that cause leaky pipes can also prevent your water heater from working well. For water heater repair work, it’s best to call a professional plumber who knows how to safely manage gas lines.
