Common Plumbing Problems

We can’t think of many people who would be happy to find out they have a problem with their plumbing. While some plumbing issues are more complex and rare, there are several that happen to more home than you may think. These common plumbing problems occur in countless homes each year and, luckily, are easily fixed.

Slow Draining Sink or Shower

How often do you notice water pooling by your drain when you shower or wash your hands? Slow draining often happens as a result of hair or debris buildup around the pop-up. To improve the flow of water in your sink or shower, use a drain cleaning tool to remove the debris buildup, or clean the pop-up by hand.

Low Water Pressure

If you’re experiencing low water pressure in your sink or shower, the first thing you should do is check if both the hot and cold water are being affected. If they are, the problem is most likely with your fixture. Over time, calcium deposits can build up on your faucet’s aerator or your showerhead. The easiest way to solve this problem is by cleaning any debris and deposit buildup from your fixture.

Running Toilet

Many homeowners are familiar with a running toilet. Several things could cause this — the fill valve, the flapper, or the flush valve — so the first step you should take is figuring out what the problem is. Once you do that, you can repair or replace the faulty part and stop the water from continuously running.

Jammed Garbage Disposal

If you’re like most people and you lost the key used to unjam your garbage disposal, you can find yourself in quite the pickle. Lucky for you, an Allen wrench can be used to unjam the disposal by inserting it in the opening for the key and turning it to free the motor.
