Most Common Plumbing Problems in Your Home

Unfortunately, dealing with plumbing problems is a part of homeownership that many of us would rather avoid. Yet, these problems are common. Many small issues can escalate quickly if not addressed promptly by a licensed plumbing company. We understand the potential damage and inconvenience that these problems can cause. Let’s walk through some of the most common plumbing issues and how our expert team can help resolve them, ensuring your home’s system functions as it was designed.

  • Dripping Faucets: A dripping faucet is more than just an annoyance. Increasing your water bill over time and leading to a significant amount of water waste. The cause is often a worn-out washer or O-ring, which can be quickly fixed by one of our skilled technicians, saving you money and conserving water.
  • Clogged Drains: Whether it’s your kitchen sink, bathroom drain, or shower, clogs are a frequent headache for homeowners. While a plunger might provide a temporary solution, persistent or severe blockages require professional attention. Our team uses specialized tools to remove drain clogs effectively without damaging your pipes.
  • Running Toilets: You know what can waste up to 200 gallons of water daily? Running toilets usually leads to high water bills. This issue often stems from faulty flapper valves, overflow pipes, or fill tubes. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Santa Cruz has the expertise to diagnose and fix this and any other toilet problem you may be dealing with quickly, preventing water waste and saving you money.
  • Leaky Pipes: Leaks can occur at pipe joints, under sinks, or along pipes concealed within walls and floors, leading to water damage and mold growth. Our technicians can locate and repair leaks using the latest tools to ensure a long-lasting solution.
  • Low Water Pressure: Experiencing low water pressure can be frustrating. This may often indicate more significant issues like pipe corrosion, sediment build-up, or leaks. We can quickly identify and repair the cause of low pressure, thereby restoring proper flow to your faucets and showers.
  • Water Heater Issues: No hot water? Water heater problems can be due to sediment build-up, faulty heating elements, or a failing thermostat. Our skilled plumbers can troubleshoot and repair your water heater issues. Don't let your water heater keep you in the cold any longer. Call Mr. Rooter Plumbing
  • Sewer System Backup: Arguably the most daunting of plumbing problems, a sewer backup, while unpleasant to the nose, can pose health risks. Signs include multiple drain clogs, foul sewage smells, and water pooling around basement floor drains. Our team is equipped to handle these emergencies promptly, preventing further damage and restoring your home’s sanitation.
