Most Common Plumbing Problems
As a homeowner it is very likely you will call a plumber at least once a year. Here are some common plumbing issues we can help with.
There are many different types of plumbing problems, but we’re always asked “is this a common problem?” Though we’ve seen a wide variety of plumbing problems from big to small, we generated a list of what our technicians most commonly see in the homes they service.
- Dripping Faucets
It’s very calm and quiet in your home and all you hear is the annoying drip of the hall bath faucet. That dripping faucet not only wastes water, it wastes money on your water bill. This is a fast and easy fix.
- Leaky Pipes
Most pipes will begin to leak near the joints, so look out for wet spots on the veiling or ground. Water damage to your home can be quite costly and should be fixed right away.
- Running Toilets
Think that dripping faucet cost you a lot? Think again. A running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons per day! As us about switching to low-flow toilets to save of water usage.
- Low Water Pressure
There are many reasons for low water press, especially in older homes. Hidden leaks, clogged pipes, and old shower heads are just a few items to look out for.
- Leaking Hose Bibb
A leaking hose bibb is very common after a long, cold winter. Switching to a frost-proof hose bibb can reduce the chances of having future leaks.
- Slow Or Clogged Drains
We warn customers to stay away from over-the-counter drain cleaners as they can damage your septic and just add unnecessary chemicals to our sewer systems. Instead, give us a call to clear the slow or clogged drain.
- Water Heater
The average life of a water heater can be anywhere from eight to 12 years depending on yearly maintenance. Stepping into a cold shower isn’t fun!
