Common Residential Plumbing Issues

Before we talk solutions, let’s familiarize ourselves with the problems. Here are some common issues you might encounter:

Leaky Faucets

Those drips add up, wasting water and your money.

Clogged Drains

From kitchen sinks to bathroom tubs, clogs are a pesky problem.

Running Toilets

Like leaky faucets, they're both annoying and wasteful.

Low Water Pressure

Affecting everything from your shower to your dishwasher.

Water Heater Woes

No hot water is no fun, especially in winter.

Maintenance Tips for the Homeowner

A little effort can go a long way in preventing plumbing issues:

Regular Inspection

Look for any signs of leaks or corrosion in pipes and fixtures.

Clean Drains Regularly

Use a mixture of hot water and vinegar to keep drains clear.

Check Water Pressure

A simple gauge can help you keep tabs on your water pressure.

Flush the Water Heater

This can extend the life of your water heater by years.

Replace Old Fixtures

Outdated faucets and showerheads are more likely to develop issues.
