Most Common Plumbing Issues

If you’re having trouble with your plumbing, it’s important to call a professional right away. Plumbing problems can quickly turn into costly repairs if they’re not addressed in a timely manner. Some common plumbing issues include leaks, clogs, and backups.

Leaky pipes are one of the most common plumbing problems. If you suspect a leak, it’s important to have it repaired as soon as possible to avoid water damage to your home. Clogged pipes are another common issue that can lead to major problems if not addressed quickly. Backups can occur when there is too much pressure on your sewer line or when tree roots have infiltrated your pipes.

No matter what kind of plumbing issue you’re dealing with, it’s important to call a professional for help. Here are some of the most common plumbing issues, 


     Dripping Faucets

Dripping faucets are inconvenient, expensive, and wasteful. These drips may occasionally be brought on by a worn-out washer or O ring, both of which are easily replaceable. Other times, the drip may be the result of rust or even poor faucet installation.


     Leaky Pipes

Leaky pipes can be caused by all sorts of problems, including:

  • Stubborn clogs
  • Incorrect pipe laying
  • Pipe corrosion
  • Pipe joint damage
  • Cracked seals or cracked pipes
  • Excessive water pressure


     Running Toilets

Did you know that a running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons per day? What a waste of water! The following are the most frequent problems that result in running toilets:

  • Refill tube problems
  • Worn out flapper seals or flush valves
  • Improperly sized flapper chains
  • Corroded toilet handles


     Low Water Pressure

Weak water pressure can make it challenging to use pretty much any plumbing system in your home! Often, low water pressure is a symptom of bigger plumbing problems, like:

  • Pipe corrosion
  • Hidden water leaks in your home
  • Drain or sewer clogs
  • Cracked or blocked sewer lines
