Common Plumbing Issues
Plumbing issues are extremely common and take on many different forms.
From a damaged water heater to a toilet failing to flush, we’ve
seen, and treated, it all.
Some of the most common plumbing issues that occur include:
LOW WATER PRESSURE: Low water pressure is a common occurrence that has many different possible
culprits. From old pipes to faulty pressure regulators, the list of possibilities
of what can trigger low water pressure is wide and long. A professional
plumber will be able to get to the root cause and take the appropriate
measures to treat the problem.
LEAKY FAUCETS: Have you recently noticed a spike in your home’s water bill without
making any change in use? If so, a leaky faucet may be to blame. According
to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), it is estimated that a faucet
that leaks one drop per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons of water per year.
SLOW/CLOGGED DRAINS: If you have ever experienced a slow or clogged drain, you know just how
frustrating and disruptive it can be. A clogged drain can be caused by
mineral buildup from hard water, the use of excessive toilet paper, or
even clumps of hair. If your drains are taking an abnormally long time
to drain or failing to do so completely, give us a call.
CORRODED FIXTURES/VALVES: Over time, fixtures can become corroded with rust and mineral buildup
and interfere with the effectiveness of the fixture. Corrosion can lead
to cracks and leaks so to prevent this, it’s important to treat
these fixtures right away.
RUNNING TOILETS: One sure way to run up the water bill is by leaving a running toilet untreated.
Running toilets are primarily caused by a leak somewhere within your plumbing
system that activates a sensor and causes your toilet to flush frequently.
Signs You Need Drain Cleaning
One of the most effective maintenance tactics you can invest in is professional
drain cleaning. Clogged drains interfere with the effectiveness of your
plumbing system and increase water bills drastically. Routine drain cleaning
services can elongate the life of your plumbing fixtures, nip clogging
problems in the bud, and provide you with priceless peace of mind. Some
of the most common signs your home could benefit from drain cleaning includes:
FREQUENT CLOGS: Nothing is more frustrating than treating and “resolving”
a clog only to have it reoccur a few days later. Frequent clogs usually
indicate that a deeper drain cleaning is necessary in order to remove
and not just push back obstructs within your drains.
When you begin to notice that your sinks and tubs are taking longer to
drain than they should, it’s time for professional drain cleaning.
Hair, mineral deposits, and rust can interfere with our draining systems
and should be removed as soon as possible.
MULTIPLE CLOGS: One clogged drain is one thing, but when several drains in your home are
clogged simultaneously, a deeper issue is present. A damaged main water
line is the primary culprit behind the occurrence of frequent clogs within
your home. Call us today and ask about our water leak detection services
to rule out any main water line damage.
FOUL-SMELLING WATER: If your home’s water supply is emitting a foul odor, something is
definitely wrong. When mold and mildew are present within our drainage
systems, the result is usually odorous water.
