Modern day plumbing has come a long way but it isn’t without its flaws. From the kitchen sink to the toilet, plumbing in any form can be finicky and delicate. Below we discuss the most common plumbing problems and how they are solved.

Leaking Faucets

Leaky faucets are the most common plumbing concern most property owner’s face. Not only can a leaking faucet become incredibly irritating over time, it also wastes a surprising amount of perfectly good water. Most oftentimes the solution for this is to replace the cartridge or O-rings below the faucet.

Clogged Drains

Unfortunately drains can easily become obstructed by chunks of food, trash, or hair. If the drain is a small one located in a bathroom sink or shower, check to see if the drain cover easily pops out or unscrews, remove the obstruction, and replace the cover. If you do not have this option or have a clogged kitchen sink, more advanced tools and skills will be required.

Faulty Toilet

A faulty toilet can include anything from a clog to a one that won’t flush at all. The most common plumbing problems include toilets that won’t stop running, won’t flush, are clogged, leaking, or won’t refill. Each of these will require immediate attention and various solutions, tools, and potentially replacement parts.  

No Hot Water

One of the worst plumbing problems to encounter in a hurry is not having any hot water. Most often this will be a result of a leaking, broken, or malfunctioning water heater. A less likely but possible culprit for no hot water is that the thermostat itself could be not working properly too.
