Help and Support: Common Plumbing Issues and How a Plumber Can Help

  • Leaky Faucets: A minor annoyance that can lead to major water waste if left unchecked. Leaky faucets are usually caused by worn-out components.
  • Running Toilets: A toilet that constantly runs can waste up to 200 gallons of water per day. The issue is typically due to a faulty flapper seal, fill valve, or overflow pipe.
  • Clogged Drains: Hair, soap scum, food waste, and other debris can clog drains, leading to slow drainage or backups. This is a common problem in both kitchen and bathroom sinks, as well as in bathtubs and showers.
  • Low Water Pressure: Often experienced in older homes, it can be caused by leaky pipes, sediment build-up, or issues with the local water supply.
  • Leaky Pipes: Pipes can start leaking due to age, damage, or freezing conditions. This is a serious issue that can lead to water damage in the home if not promptly addressed.
  • Faulty Water Heaters: If you're not getting hot water, or if your water heater is leaking or making noise, there may be a problem. These can be complex, involving elements like heating elements, thermostats, or pressure relief valves.
  • Sewer System Backup: This is a serious and unpleasant issue. Symptoms include multiple drain clogs, bad sewage odors coming from the drains, gurgling toilets, and pools of water around the basement drain.
  • Dripping or Leaking Hose Bibb: This is a common issue in the spring and summer. Over the winter, the hose bibb can crack and begin to leak.
  • Installation Problems: This can range from issues installing new appliances like dishwashers or washing machines, to problems installing new pipes or fixtures.
  • Garbage Disposal Jam: Many people misuse their garbage disposals. As a result, the mechanism can jam and fail to work.

These are only some of the issues a plumber can help with. It's always best to hire a professional for serious problems, as they have the tools and knowledge necessary to fix these problems without causing further damage to the plumbing system. Contact us
