Every homeowner and renter experiences plumbing issues at one point. You might have even solved a few small issues by yourself. A clogged toilet or a worn washer can be resolved with relative ease when you have the adequate tools and know-how. Sometimes bigger issues pop up and you don’t know how to deal with them. Here are some common plumbing problems that require professional attention.
If you’ve ever had a dripping faucet, you know how annoying it can be. Trying to get work done or falling asleep can be difficult when you constantly hear dripping. Not only is it an inconvenience, but it can also drive up your water bill.
When silicone or rubber washers become dislodged, torn, or stiffened, they let water trickle through. Sometimes even the valve seat becomes corroded. Call a professional plumber if you’ve been experiencing this issue with no resolution.
Low Water Pressure
Water should gush out of your sink and shower head with ease. Washing your hands, dishes, or taking a shower should be a quick and simple process. When water only trickles out, it can be annoying and time consuming. This is most often due to sediments and deposits building up on your faucet aerators.
If the problem persists after you clean your showerheads and aerators, there might be a more complex underlying cause. A breached or leaky pipe could be causing the low water pressure and lead to a host of other problems. This can be diagnosed and resolved by a licensed plumber.
When the water in your tub, toilet, or sink won’t go down, this is because you have a clog. Clogs can be either partial or complete. If the problem isn’t being resolved with a plunger or commercial drain cleaner, call a professional.
Now that you know more about plumbing problems and signs of more serious issues, you’ll be ready to call a professional from All Hours Plumbing, Heating & Air when you need a hand.
