Common Plumbing Problems in Dayton
Historical Plumbing Systems
Dayton is an old city. While it was founded in 1796, it didn't really get going until the late 1800s with the beginning of the Dayton manufacturing boom. Because it's so old, many homes and commercial buildings have old plumbing systems that can be temperamental. Before the 1960s, galvanized iron piping was extremely common in plumbing systems. Over time, the pipes would rust from the inside out, creating plaque layers inside of the pipes. The rust would cause water pressure issues and clogs. As galvanized iron plumbing only has a lifespan of about 70 years, many buildings experience problems if they have an older system.
While we don't experience the most rain out of any state in the country, we get a good amount. Excessive amounts of rain can cause plumbing issues by saturating the soil with water. If the soil is oversaturated, it shifts, which could dislodge any outdoor plumbing system enough to crack a pipe. Likewise, when Dayton experiences temperatures below 30 degrees, the water in your pipes might be in danger of freezing if they're not adequately insulated. As water freezes, it expands, which can put enough pressure on your pipe to break it. When the water melts again, the broken pipe can expel water all over your property, which can cause long-lasting water damage that is expensive to repair.

Signs of Plumbing Problems
Some plumbing problems are obvious, like a broken shower handle or a clogged toilet. However, some people can't tell if they have a plumbing issue until the problem escalates, which could cause severe damage to your property. For example, tree root intrusion into your sewer line might not be evident at first. You might notice a dip in water pressure, or you might see that one patch of your lawn is greener than the rest of it. Here are a few signs to look out for if you're unsure if you have a plumbing problem:
- Low water pressure
- Higher water bills
- Odd sounds from the faucet or walls, such as groaning or gurgling
- Slow draining in sinks or showers
- Stains or bubbling paint on walls
- A constantly running toilet
- Water backs up in the sink when the dishwasher runs
- Unpleasant smells coming from the drain or faucet
- You smell sewage, rotten eggs, or gas in your house
If you smell gas in your home or business, make sure to leave the structure and call a local plumber or your gas company immediately. Natural gas in high concentrations can be fatal, so getting your gas shut off is essential until a professional can detect the source of the leak and repair it. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Dayton provides skilled and efficient gas line repair in Dayton, OH.
Can a Water Heater Be Repaired?
Broken water heaters are never welcome. If you've noticed your hot water heater being inconsistent, or not working at all, it may be time for water heater repair in Dayton. Water heaters can be repaired, but you need to consider all possible options before okaying a repair, including the age of the water heater and the reason it's malfunctioning. Most traditional water heaters only last from 8 to 12 years, so if your water heater is getting old, it may be time to replace it entirely. However, if your water heater is relatively young, it may still be covered under the manufacturer's warranty. Some water heater issues are fairly easy to resolve with the help of a professional. For example, if too much sediment in the tank has built up, a sediment flush could be just the thing to get it running again.
