Four Common Plumbing Problems

Leaky Faucets

Leaky faucets develop slowly over time, which means you may not even realize it when it first starts. While it might seem like a small thing, a leaky faucet can waste hundreds of gallons of water a year. A leaking or dripping faucet is caused by a malfunctioning handle or faucet. An experienced plumbing company will be able to help you resolve this issue.

Running Toilets 

If a leaky faucet wastes hundreds of gallons of water a year, toilets that continue running after you flush them waste even more. Sometimes the problem is in the flush handle itself, but other times it might be due to a leak or something more serious. 

Slow or Clogged Drains

Everyone knows how to fix a simple clog, but if your clog has grown to the point of water constantly being backed up or slowly draining, there might be a larger problem. There are a few different ways to fix a blocked drain, such as using a plumbers snake or chemical clog remover. Although you might rent or own these tools or solutions, a professional plumber might be more apt to fix the problem quicker.

Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure might mean there’s a larger issue. If you’re having this issue, you might want to start by calling in the professionals. These can be caused by leaky or corroded pipes as well as a build-up of dirt and minerals.

Low water pressure can sometimes be fixed by replacing the faucet or showerheads, but if you suspect it might be a larger issue, call in a home plumbing services company.
