The Most Common Plumbing Problems

January 12, 2023

If you live in the same place long enough, regardless of how new your home is, you will inevitably face the universal issue every homeowner does: plumbing problems. These are also known as the common plumbing problems every homeowner needs to watch out for and pay attention to. 

While most of these common plumbing problems are easy fixes, even the most simple or reoccurring plumbing problem could be a forewarning of a potentially bigger issue. It is also important to take care of those common problems sooner rather than later, because, like many problems when left alone, they only get worse.

Plumbing Problems Every Homeowner Needs to Watch Out For

If you are a homeowner, then there are some very common plumbing problems to always be aware of, and more importantly, be prepared to handle. Here is a look at the leading culprits, and those problems we often procrastinate to tackle.

Dripping Faucets 

It isn’t bad enough that the sound of dripping water might drive you crazy, but dripping faucets can also be indicative of other plumbing issues.

In many cases, an adjustment screw or new seal can fix the problem, but it is never a bad idea to consult with a professional plumber first.

Slow Draining Sink 

Be careful of pouring just any de-clogger or drain cleaner down your sink. Not only can some be harmful, but drains that aren’t only slow but that stop draining can also create harmful or more problematic situations.

If the reason for the drain is more than a basic clog, it is also worth a call to your local plumber.

Clogged Bath or Shower Drain 

Hopefully, you don’t see wastewater, or worse yet, sewage coming back up your drain in the bathroom. Yes, like most plumbing clogs, simply fixing the clog itself will remedy the issue, but too many times the problem is much bigger than a clog. When reoccurring clogs happen or cleaning the drain doesn’t work, it is time to get professional help.
