You know that gurgling toilet or slow draining sink you have been ignoring? Did you know that ignoring early signs of plumbing problems is one of the most common reasons that plumbing emergencies take place. In this blog, we will go over 5 Common Plumbing Problems that could be plaguing your home.
5 Common Plumbing Problems:
What Causes Sinks to Drain Slowly?
Slow draining and clogged sinks are actually caused by the same underlying problem – a drain with some form of growing gunk. The only difference between these two issues is that a slow draining sink is the early warning sign of a clogged sink. Getting your drain cleaned out at the slow-draining phase can prevent a costly flood or paying an emergency plumbing fee.
What Causes Leaking Pipes?
Leaks in pipes occur most often where two or more pipes connect. The seals in these junctions can deteriorate overtime and cause pipes to begin to leak. These leaks can quickly cause mold, rot, and additional water damage to destroy parts of your home.
What Causes Noisy Pipes?
The most common type of noisy pipe is a phenomenon called ‘water-hammer’. This typically occurs in plumbing systems that were incorrectly sized or installed. This can cause long-term damage to both your pipes and your peace-of-mind.
What Causes My Toilet to Make Noise?
One of the most causes of a noisy toilet is when your toilet runs continually. A noisy toilet is typically also a leaking toilet. This is a huge problem when it comes to water consumption and water bills.
What Causes Low Water Pressure?
Low water pressure is one of the most common problems plaguing home owners. It can be caused by a wide variety of problems ranging from sediment build up to a leak in your water main.
