The Most Common Plumbing Repairs
Human waste and toilet paper are really only the two things that should be flushed down a toilet. Many people will often flush other material such as wipes, napkins, paper towels, feminine hygiene products, diapers, and medications. Flushing these objects can lead to your toilet backing up. Even just flushing too much toilet paper can back up your toilet. A clog could be forming in your toilet drain, if you notice that your toilet has a slow or weak flush. If your toilet is backing up into your bathtub or shower, your sewer line might need to be cleaned.
No Hot Water
There are many things that can go wrong with your hot water heater. If you aren’t getting any hot water and you own a gas water heater, you should check to see if your pilot light is on. You may need to replace the thermostat or upper electric heating element if you have an electric water heater. You should check your thermostat if your not getting enough hot water or it takes a long time for the water to get hot. If you have rusty colored water, your anode rod may be failing. Smelly water indicates that you might have a bacterial infection inside your tank. Excessive sediment build up on the bottom of your water heater tank will cause a popping or whining sound.
Drain and Sewer Blockage
To enable water to circulate in your home, there are four plumbing systems. These four systems include hot and cold water distribution, pipe ventilation, and waste water evacuation. These system require regular maintenance and upkeep. If they’re not taken care of, a blockage in the pluming system can occur. On occasions, a sewer main in your street can be clogged, which would cause a backup in your home.
A pool of water underneath your toilet may indicate that you have a leaking toilet seal. The toilet seal forces waste and water into the drain and prevents sewer gases from rising up into your home. These gases smell awful and can be harmful to a persons health. These leaks need to be taken care of quickly by a plumber, so it doesn’t rot your floor. Improper installation of the flange can lead to the toilet seal failing. The bolts that hold the toilet to the floor may become loose also causing the seal to break.
Low Water Pressure
There are multiple reasons as to why you might have low water pressure. It could be a simple problem such as the shut off valve being closed or a faucet that is blocked. Valves sometimes get shut off by accident and just need to be turned on. There are home valves and customer valves. There might be a chance that there’s a bigger problem that needs to be fixed by a plumber. The water pressure regulator, a bell shaped device, can be broken and may need to be replaced. Any leaks and/or damage to water pipes will result in lower water pressure. Older houses are built with iron pipes that cause mineral deposits. These deposits will happen over time. Hot water and horizontal pipes will speed up the process of mineral deposits. One thing that many people fail to realize is that there are peak periods. Most people operate during the same hours of the day, so if the majority of your neighborhood is using their water, then it will result in low water pressure.
