Common Plumbing Problems With Solutions

Plumbing issues are some of the most irritable problems that a homeowner can face. Plumbing problems can create further issues like rusting and foul smells throughout the house, disturbing your peace of mind. Owners should check for plumbing issues and contact our plumber for plumbing service in Antelope Valley whenever they notice a problem.

If owners delay fixing the plumbing problem, it can become more complex and cost the owners a fortune. Instead of spending unwanted money by delaying a minor repair job, owners should contact us and fix the problem immediately.

Common Problems and Solutions

Owners should know more information about plumbing problems so that they can remedy the issue without immediate professional care, unless needed.

Here are some of those problems for your reference:

  • Clogging in Toilets and Drains

If the water in drains or toilets starts to settle or come back up, something clogs the water path. Usually, hair can clog the drains, and solid objects that water cannot dissolve clog the toilets.

You can use a plunger to create a suction effect in the drains. If you do not want to use a plunger, use chemical cleaners instead.

  • A Leaking Faucet

A leaking faucet irritates family members with continuous dripping and increases your monthly water bills. A faucet may leak due to damage like tearing or stiffening to the washer.

The only solution to a leaky faucet is to replace the washer as it has damage. However, only a professional plumber can replace the washer as you do not have the required equipment or skill.

  • Water Heater Problems

A malfunctioning water heater may create water puddles and give cold water instead of hot water.

If cold water comes out, ensure the gas supply to the water heater is on and check the temperature settings. However, for water leakages, you should contact our professional plumber to handle the issue.

  • Low Water Pressure

The water flowing in the water pipeline of your home has a fixed pressure range. If the water pressure is low, your faucets, showerheads, and toilets will not work as they should. Low water pressure could be due to a major leak in the main pipeline or a water main break.

If only your shower head has low water pressure, you can fix it by soaking its aerator in vinegar overnight. It should remove the clogging in the aerator that causes low water pressure.

  • A Running Toilet

A running toilet increases your water bill and creates unwanted daily noise. Damage to the flapper valve and leakages in the water tank can cause this problem.

To fix this problem, you will have to check all parts individually. Since you may not have the required knowledge, it is better to contact our professional plumber to do the work instead.
