Most Common Plumbing Issues
Toilet Backup: Each time your toilet is flushed, toilet paper and waste matter can build up in the sewer drain pipe, leading to a slower drain that doesn’t allow air to flow effectively through the line. Once this happens, your toilet becomes backed up. If the backup is bad enough, an ordinary toilet plunger just won’t do. In this case, you are better off having a professional plumber deal with the obstructions. An experienced plumber knows how to use special devices like closet augers and plumbing snakes to clear out backed up toilets very quickly, so you won’t have to worry about the problem spiraling even more out of control.
Water Heater Failure: The typical signs of water heater failure are no hot water, excessively hot water, leaks, and strange noises coming from your tank. Depending on the symptoms of your water heater, it may only need to be repaired. However, the average water heater fails completely after 10 years, so if your water heater is older than this, it’s best to have a professional plumber replace it with a newer energy-efficient model. An energy efficient water heater can save you a great deal of money on your heating costs, and is better for the environment, too.
Blockages in the Plumbing System: Bathroom drains are known for being easily clogged with soap scum and hair, while kitchen sinks are notorious for getting clogged with leftover food and grease. Deep blockages within the P-tap or drainpipes need to taken care of by a professional plumber, as household remedies would only make a small difference in the removal of blockage. Leftover food, soap, hair, and grease can also lead to sewer line blockage. If left untreated, these sewer clogs will cause your bathroom drainpipes to be backed up with debris. Once this happens, harmful gases can contaminate your home, putting your health at risk. At this level of destruction, only a professional plumber can provide sewer blockage repair.
Leaking Toilet Seal: An overpowering smell of sewage is often the first indicator of a leaking toilet seal. Other signs of a seal leak are a toilet that easily moves from side to side, mold surrounding the base of the toilet, and a soft spongy floor surrounding the toilet. A professional plumber can inspect your toilet seal to determine if it is warped, old, cracked, or improperly seated. After this, they will decide if your current seal needs to be replaced or adjusted, through the raising or lowering of the flange.
Decreased Water Pressure: The common factors for troubleshooting decreased water pressure within a residence are geography, leaks, equipment malfunctions, and general wear and tear of the pipes and faucets. Houses located at higher elevations than the water tank tend to have lower water pressure in comparison to homes build on lower elevations. Leaks in the water main or the service line between the water meter and your home can cause lowered water pressure as well. Once there are malfunctions with the water meter, or water pressure regulator, consistent decreases in water pressure can occur. As faucets and pipes age, everyday wear and tear can cause a decrease in water pressure, too. If you are experiencing a decrease in water pressure in your home, a professional plumber can assess all of these factors in order to troubleshoot the problem and fix it thereafter.
