Issues with plumbing are never pleasant. No problem is enjoyable, but plumbing issues, such as clogged sinks and drains, can make it difficult for you to wash your hands, take a shower, or even flush the toilet. An average household leak can cause the loss of 9,400 gallons of water a year, according to estimates. Unresolved plumbing issues can be quite expensive and troublesome when you need water the most and can’t have it. Unfortunately, one of the challenges with plumbing problems is that many of them might go unnoticed or ignored until the problem grows. But being aware will help you both notice the problems earlier and help you take action before they grow into something bigger.


Leaky Faucets

More often than not, you will meet someone who experienced leaky faucets at least once. Unfortunately, it’s more than just an annoying sound; it can also increase your water bill. In a year, hundreds of gallons of water might be lost from a single faucet. Usually, an internal washer that has been worn out or detached over time is the source of leaky faucets. Fixing this is quite simple; if you can handle basic DIY tasks, all you need to do is buy a new internal washer and change it. If you don’t know how to do it, leave the task to professional plumbers, but make sure it’s getting taken care of.

Clogged Pipes

Another very common pipe problem includes clogged shower heads, kitchen drains, or exterior drains. This usually happens when different particles eventually accumulate inside the drains and clog them. To prevent this from occurring, don’t send any starch-rich food, grease, coffee grounds, or eggshells down your drains. For showers, install a hair catcher, and for toilets, don’t flush anything other than waste and toilet paper. If it’s already clogged, you can try pouring boiling water to clear certain small blockages. Another home remedy is mixing vinegar and baking soda and pouring it down the sink. We don’t really advise drain cleaning products because they harm your pipes and your septic tank if you have one. 

Insufficient Water Pressure

Daily chores like taking a shower or doing the dishes might become incredibly inefficient due to low water pressure. Low water pressure problems can be caused by a number of things, such as mineral accumulation, damaged pipes, or leaks. The cause of low water pressure can be determined and suitable solutions can be suggested by a professinoal plumber depending on the reason, and this includes simple cleanings, pipe repairs or repiping.
