Common Plumbing Problems

Plumbing isn’t something that’s thought of until that something goes wrong in the home. Plumbing is one of those things that most Americans take for granted and don’t think twice about unless their water bill is extremely high or they have water bursting everywhere. It is important to contact your local plumbing company when you have any plumbing issues, as plumbing is a certified trait.

Most common issues that fall under needing a professional plumber are dripping faucets, leaky pipes, running toilets, low pressure water, clogged drains, water heater issues, or the worst of all sump pump failure. Many of your plumbing issues need the attention of a licensed professional. Did you know that dripping faucet, leaky pipes and running toilets are the number one cause of water waste? And also the reason your water bill is so high. Another common misconception is that low pressure is from living in an old home, whereas it could be from a leaking pipe. Leaking pipes lead to busted pipes and busted pipes lead to hundred of dollars in damage to personal belongings. Never let plumbing issues go unattended – it is recommended that you get your plumbing inspected every 2-3years.

Unless you are a licensed professional it’s highly recommended that you call a professional to assess your plumbing issues and aide in fixing those issues. Plumbing not done correctly can sometimes be a temporary fix and only cause more trouble down the road. These reoccurring issues can become costly, instead invest in the one time professional fix and inquire about the possibility of  future issues and if the company will cover those costs, almost like a warranty for their plumbing work. Most companies guaranteed to come back if the issue isn’t resolved the first time around, but make sure the company is reliable and creditable when choosing a company to do your plumbing work.
