5 Of The Most Common Plumbing Problems

Don’t settle for a toilet that runs!

There are a variety of plumbing problems that any home could face at any given time. In most cases, you should contact a licensed plumber if you have any major plumbing problem. While you may be tempted to pull out your toolbox and try your hand at plumbing, some jobs just need to be left up to the professionals. They have the tools, knowledge, and experience to get the job done right. Here are a few examples of the most common plumbing problems!

Leaky Faucets

A leaky faucet can be one of the most annoying sounds that a homeowner has to do endure. If you have a leaky faucet, it is almost always in your best interest to pick up the phone and call a licensed plumber. A good plumber should have no trouble fixing a leaky faucet in just a matter of minutes.

Running Toilets

A functioning toilet should not be making a running noise. If your toilet is running, you should have a reason for concern. Sometimes, the issue can be corrected; however, it could also be a sign that you are just in need of a new toilet.

Clogged Drains

A clogged drain can be a recipe for disaster. Sometimes, clogged drains are correctable by someone with limited or no plumbing experience. There are a variety of products available today for unclogging drains that you can pick up at your local hardware store. If you are unable to fix your issue on your own, you need to bring in a plumber to resolve the issue.

Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure should be a major red flag. If you discover that you receive low water pressure when you are in the shower or when you turn on the faucets inside your home, you need to contact a plumber right away.

Leaky Pipes

Water damage is a homeowners worst nightmare. Even the smallest leak can cause a home all sorts of problems. It is imperative that all leaks are corrected immediately. The longer you wait to have a leaky pipe fixed, the more problems you will have on your hands. It is important to realize that small leaks can quickly grow in size.
