5 Common Plumbing Problems

When it comes to plumbing, issues will arise that will need to be taken care of. Some issues can be easily done on your own and others will need a plumber to fix the problem. Here are five common issues associated with plumbing.

Dripping Faucets:

Hearing that drip, drip, drip while you are trying to sleep or do work can become an annoyance. According to the EPA, the average household leak can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water that is wasted yearly. This can also raise your water bill which is not something any of us want to see. To combat this issue, have your faucet looked at immediately by a plumber to have the issue fixed.

Low Water Pressure:

Having low water pressure in your home can happen for a variety of reasons. Debris and mineral buildup in the pipes, corrosion buildup outside of the pipes, leaks in the plumbing and municipal water malfunctions are some of the ways that low water pressure can occur.

Running Toilet

Have you heard your toilet running constantly and are not sure why? Then your toilet is probably running. Common causes such as the position of your float, warped, dirty or broken flapper or problems with the chain can help contribute to the issues of a running toilet.

Leaky Pipes

Leaky pipes can be a simple to a more damaging leak. Leaky pipes can be diagnosed a number of ways depending on the type of leak, where the leak is occurring and how damaging the leak is.

Slow or Clogged Drains
