Most Common Plumbing Problems

October 11, 2022

Many parts of a home are necessary to ensure the property remains safe and comfortable to live in. One part that needs to be in good condition is your plumbing system, which ensures that you have access to clean water and that waste is able to leave your home the right way. While a plumbing system is durable and can last a long time, it will wear down over time and some repairs will be necessary. Recognizing plumbing issues is very important as it can help ensure you have an issue fixed before it becomes a larger problem.

Leaking Faucet and Pipes

One of the most common plumbing issues that someone will have is a leaking faucet or pipes. Due to the amount of water that runs through a faucet or pipe on a daily basis, the parts of the system will wear down and need replacement. Eventually, small amounts of water will start to leak out through any crack or loose part. If you notice water pooling beneath a pipe, it is always a good idea to have it fixed as soon as you can, as it can help you avoid water damage.

Running Toilets

Another common plumbing problem that people will incur is running toilets. Due to worn-out seals, corrosion to the handle, and other issues, a toilet may continue to run and drain water throughout the day. While it may not seem significant, a running toilet can easily waste over 100 gallons daily. This will end up wasting a lot of water and money over an extended period of time.

Poor Water Pressure

Having access to good water pressure is very beneficial for bathing, cooking, cleaning, and gardening. If you notice that your water pressure is getting worse, it could be due to a variety of challenges and concerns. These can include clogged sewer lines, corrosion in the pipes, or small water leaks. If you have a reduction in water pressure, it would be a good idea to call a plumber immediately.

Clogged Drains

Clogged drains are very common and could make it hard for water to drain out of a sink or other part of your plumbing system. If you have a clogged drain, it is important to have it unclogged correctly. If you have multiple clogs at once, it could indicate an issue with your sewer or main line. A plumber will be able to identify the cause of the clog and make any necessary repairs. 

Having a quality and reliable home plumbing system is important for everyone. A quality plumbing system will ensure that you have access to clean water and all waste can leave efficiently. Any property owner is bound to eventually need a repair for various pipe and plumbing issues. There are various problems, in particular, that could arise, and recognizing plumbing issues early is always beneficial.
