4 Common Household Plumbing Problems
Posted on January 1st, 2015
Owning a house comes with many big responsibilities, not the least of which is maintaining its plumbing. Ignoring seemingly small headaches now will only lead to larger, more expensive issues down the road. From sluggish drains to low water pressure, here are four common household plumbing problems:
1. Sluggish or clogged drain
Most homeowners have dealt with a slow-draining or clogged sink. Hair, grease and debris can build up over time, which disallows water from flowing freely. Whether you’re dealing with a clog in your kitchen or bathroom, we can fix it. Don’t waste your time with pipe-eroding drain cleaning fluids or futile DIY attempts!
2. Running toilet
Many people are also familiar with this common household plumbing problem. Your running toilet could be caused by a variety of things, but all of them are fairly easy to correct. Allow the experts of Plumbing Medic to identify what’s making your toilet run. We’ll then be able to replace or repair any broken or malfunctioning parts.
3. Blocked garbage disposal
If you have a garbage disposal in your kitchen, you’ve likely dealt with a blockage once or twice. You may even have lost the key that came with your garbage disposal, which is designed to unblock it. Please avoid trying to fix this dangerous appliance on your own! Allow us to help get you out of a jam.
4.. Decreased water pressure
There’s almost nothing worse than low water pressure when you need a good shower. Decreased water pressure could be due to a number of things, like mineral deposits from hard water or a blocked aerator. Call Plumbing Medic for help diagnosing the problem as well as a quick fix.
