Plumbing issues come in all shapes and sizes, some are inexpensive while others can be costly. Learning to identify what areas may be a problem area in your home is key to eliminating the issue before it grows into a real plumbing issue for your home. If issues are not addressed right away at the time of discovery they can turn into a much bigger problem. For example, a leaky faucet could be the beginning of underlying issues that the home owner is unaware of going on. Some of the most common issues a homeowner faces are the following:
A good indication of a clog is when your toilet will not drain properly. If a plunger does not work to break the clog, then you may have to call a professional to use a plumbing snake to fix the issue.
A continuously running toilet can be caused by a faulty flapper valve. This is an easy fix, and you can pick up a toilet repair kit at your local hardware store for not a lot of money. One way to determine why your toilet is continuously running is to check for silent leaks. Add food coloring to the upper tank and check to see if it makes its way to the bowl. If it does not make its way to the bowl you may call a plumber to check for much larger issues you may be experiencing.
Clogged Shower Drain
Slow draining bathroom sinks, or shower drains can generally mean there is block or clog caused by hair and soap. Clearing the blockage may require the use of a plunger, or a snake. Baking soda and vinegar can sometimes dissolve the clog too. The problem generally gets worse over time, if not dealt with. The problem can be prevented or minimized by buying a drain guard to catch the hair.
