March 24, 2020by leakypipes

When it comes to your home’s plumbing system, it’s good to have an idea of   the most common household plumbing problems, as well as what to do if you face one. Here are the top 10 most common plumbing problems and some useful tips for dealing with them.

  • Residential plumbing and dripping taps
  • Leaking hydraulic piping
  • Faulty hot water pipeline
  • Leaking water heater
  • Plumbing with clogged drain
  • Clogged bathroom plumbing
  • Toilet leaking water
  • Valve malfunction in the pipeline
  • Sewage return

Residential Plumbing And Dripping Taps

Dripping is the most annoying noise in the world when you’re trying to read a book nearby, but you can fix it by simply replacing the tap valve. To extend the life of the tap valve, avoid closing it too tightly.

Leaking Hydraulic Piping

We waste thousands of liters of water a year due to leaks. If you have a leaky pipe, it is important to contact a professional immediately to inspect the problem, ensuring that you do not waste money. Or, at least, you must repair the leak yourself to avoid waste.

Faulty Hot Water Pipeline

Plumbing companies often receive calls due to a water heater problem that results in running out of hot water. 

Leaking Water Heater

If your water heater leaks, it’s time to get in touch with a professional plumber. Typically, leaks signal that the bottom of the water storage tank has started to rust, which means that you will probably need to replace the unit. 

It is also good to have a pan under the tank to prevent damage to the structure of your home.

Plumbing With Clogged Drain

You can avoid a clogged drain by looking at what you put in it, especially in the kitchen. 

Never put fats, oils or cooking fat in a drain. Egg shells are also bad, as are scraps of food, sand, and stones.

Clogged Bathroom Plumbing

Running to the bathroom only to find that your bathroom is clogged is never a fun time. 

While a plunger is usually your weapon of choice for this common problem, you should contact a plumber if it becomes an unexplained recurring problem. Remember to avoid throwing toilet paper into the toilet as well.

Toilet Leaking Water

If your toilet makes a low, humming noise without stopping after being used, this usually indicates a problem with one of your equipment. 

Turn off the water and check for a bad fill valve or other leaking component. 

Water Quality Problem

If your water has quality problems, it can be the result of several problems.

Valve Malfunction In The Pipeline

The best way to deal with a bad valve is to replace it with a new quarter-turn ball valve. 

This type of valve rarely leaks, locks or wears out. It also takes just an hour to install.

Sewage Return

It is another plumbing nightmare that nobody wants to experience. Sewage returns are confusing, expensive and inconvenient. 

Signs of a return from the sewer system include various runoff clogs, bad sewage odors from the sewers, bathroom drains returning water and water around drains.

It may be necessary to unclog the pipes with the appropriate products and materials, and it is recommended to contact a professional for the task.

Major plumbing repairs should be left to professionals to prevent further damage to their pipes and other hydraulic devices.
