Three Common Plumbing Problems

1. Clogged drains

The kitchen and bathroom are the most common locations for a clogged drain. The drain normally allows water to pass through, but can become blocked and leave water nowhere to go. Many times a household plunger is not enough, and a professional plumber is needed to restore the water flow.

2. Broken water heaters

Having hot water available is essential to modern living. Water heaters sometimes break down and need repair. The cause of faulty water heaters varies. It may be because of a broken part or a loose connection. Most problems with water heaters are not very complicated or expensive.

3. Leaking taps

Many homeowners choose to ignore leaky faucets. This is not a good idea because they can lead to a high water bill over time and cause even more damage to your pipes or home. Leaky faucets often can be fixed by replacing inefficient or worn washers.
