Plumbing issues come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, from the relatively minor and inexpensive, such as a dripping faucet or running toilet, all the way to a sewer system backup or a major pipe leak capable of causing severe damage to walls, floors, and personal property.
Dripping faucets are so common that it’s rare to find someone who hasn’t experienced this issue. It’s not just a source of irritation; the waste of water can push up your water bill and cost you money too. A single faucet can drip away hundreds of gallons over the course of a year. The cause of dripping faucets in most cases is an internal washer that has become stiff, torn, worn, or dislodged over time.
Slow Draining Sink is normally caused by a blockage that is restricting water flow. The kitchen sink drain may contain things like congealed fat and food remnants. In a bathroom sink, the blockage is more likely to be caused by knotted hair and soap. Chemicals cause damage to the drainage pipes if used repeatedly. When the toilet bowl fills up and doesn’t drain away, you’ve got a clog. Clogged Toilet is normally caused by a mixture of paper and human waste. Running Toilet causes gallons of gallons of water wasted each day. The most common culprit could be a faulty flapper valve or sediment affecting the flushing and filling.
Faulty Water Heater may not be discovered until you are in the shower and the water suddenly goes cold. There are multiple issues that can cause a water heater to fail. A build-up of sediment in the tank can or it may be the thermostat that is at fault. If your water trickles out of the tap rather than gushes, this may be a symptom of low water pressure. Low water pressure can be caused by leaking pipes that have become broken, worn, or corroded over time. More often than not, it’s caused by a build-up of sediment and mineral deposits on aerators. Garbage disposals are very useful appliances, but they do jam sometimes. Running them without water, disposing of certain food substances such as corn husks and potato peels, or allowing silverware to get inside can all cause problems.
Leaky pipes can be more than just a nuisance, they can cause damage to furniture and floors, and the dampness can encourage bugs like cockroaches. Leaks are more common in the winter when water can freeze, expand, and cause pipes to burst.
Sewer system backups are, frankly, a nightmare. They are smelly, nasty, inconvenient, and can be expensive to fix if you have multiple drains and toilets not working and a bad odor of human waste. Sewer clogs usually happen when we flush down the toilet diapers, facial tissues, napkins, etc. Tree roots push through cracks in pipes or surround a pipe and crush it or by old sewer lines breaking or collapsing. The combination of time and use corrodes gas lines, it’s a natural occurrence, though no less stressful for homeowners.
Plumbing problems can be disastrous for commercial locations. Something as simple as a leak or a clogged pipe can slow or even close your business, not to mention undesirably impact your customers and workers. Many commercial spaces are decades old and have an old piping system. Such a system could lead to leakage or breakdowns because of their age. Gas lines running through the building as any gas leakage can lead to hazardous consequences.
