Common Plumbing Problems

Most Common Plumbing Issues You May Experience

Everyone is going to experience some type of plumbing issue at some point in their life. An experienced and skilled plumber can handle almost any problem you are experiencing. The following are the most common plumbing issues that people deal with across the country.

Dripping Faucets

Dripping faucets happen all the time. People often ignore them because they do not have an immediate and significant impact. However, a dripping faucet can lead to a higher water bill, as the drips can add up to hundreds of gallons a year.

Slow Draining Sink

Countless things wash down a kitchen sink. Though many foods will wash down the sink without causing a problem, others can quickly impede the draining ability. Sinks that are draining slowly usually have something clogging or blocking the water flow. Slow draining sinks can also happen in bathrooms and any other locations in your home with a sink. 

Clogged Bath or Shower Drain

Bath and shower drain often become clogged, as well. Clumps of hair or soap usually cause the slowed flow of water. If you do not deal with the problem soon after noticing it, it will intensify over time and become gradually worse.

Clogged Toilet

There are few things people dread more than the toilet bowl filling with water and not draining. A clogged toilet is a disgusting problem that is, unfortunately, extremely common. You can usually unclog it with a plunger, but if the situation is severe enough, you may need to call in a professional. 

Running Toilet

Like a dripping faucet, a running toilet will significantly raise your water bill. It can lead to up to 200 gallons lost every day. Apart from inside the toilet malfunctioning is the usual cause, and can often be fixed relatively easily.

Poor Water Pressure

Arguably the most important part of a shower is the water pressure. If water is running slowly out of your shower head or sinks, you probably are having issues with low water pressure. It often happens when there are issues with your pipes, such as corrosion or damage over time. Residents of older homes have a higher chance of dealing with poor water pressure.
