Homeowners should be prepared for any issues they might face, including problems with the plumbing. When something goes wrong with the plumbing, it could require emergency assistance to minimize water damage and make sure the home has the water it needs.
Plumbing troubles are big inconveniences. They slow down the activities of your family and household. There are so many typical issues with plumbing that we can help you with.
We’ve listed some of the most common plumbing issues homeowners may suffer from. Call us for any of these plumbing problems or other plumbing problems that you may have.
- Clogged drains
• Clogged toilet
• Dripping faucets
• Hot water heater not working, no hot water, or water heater leaking
• Jammed garbage disposal
• Leaky pipes
• Low water pressure
• Running toilet
• Sewer system backup
• Slow draining sink
Clogged drains are a frequent issue, whether it’s in the shower, the tub, or a sink. When a clog does happen, drain cleaners aren’t going to work as expected. At best, they’re a waste of money. At worst, they’re going to damage the drain pipes. Other methods work a lot better, are fast, and will prevent other issues like standing water inside the home.
Debris and hair that has become lodged into the sink or tub is the main culprit of a slow drain. And of course when leaving a slow drain unrepaired it may turn into a clogged drain. We may need to go fishing. That’s right. A little fishing with a drain snake could do the trick. If not, disassembling the pipes could be what is needed. Get things flowing just the way they should by letting our handymen help.
Instead of trying drain cleaner, a call to Great Value Handyman™ can have this cleared up in no time.
You may be able to ignore the sound of a leaky faucet after the first day or two. But eventually not only does the noise become a problem, but so does the water bill cost increase. There could be a simple solution as replacing a part. Or it may mean a new fixture is needed. Get your household running like normal again and contact us for assistance.
LOW WATER PRESSURE
Leaks are often hidden, and there won’t be many signs until the water damage can be seen inside the home. One sign that can indicate there’s a leak somewhere in the home is a lack of water pressure. If the water isn’t getting to where it’s supposed to be because of a leak, there may be low water pressure in some or all areas of the home. Plumbing Repair is needed to find and fix the leak.
FAULTY HOT WATER HEATER
Other common issues are the hot water heater not working, no hot water or water heater leaking in the home. Sometimes, the hot water will last for a little bit, but not long enough for a full shower. In other cases, the water may never get hot. In either of these situations, the most likely culprit is the water heater. A licensed plumber Handyman can handle the water heater repair or replace the water heater, depending on how serious the issue is and how old the water heater might be, and make sure the whole home has hot water once again.
ARE DIY SOLUTIONS ADVISABLE?
Homeowners today often want to do a lot of the repairs on their own to save money. When it comes to plumbing, however, this is never advised. It’s possible to open the p-trap under the sink, clean out a clog, and put it back together. But, if it’s not put together right, it’s going to leak. Since it’s under the sink, that water could cause serious damage and mold before it’s noticed.
Inside walls and other hidden areas of the home, the issue can be much worse and cause thousands in damage if the homeowner does something incorrectly. Instead, it’s always a better idea to have a professional take a look at any plumbing issues and fix them correctly the first time. When there are any plumbing issues in a home, it’s a good idea to contact a Handyman to make sure the repairs are done right. They can handle any plumbing issues, from the common ones noted here to more rare ones that could happen. Keep the phone number for a professional available, so if you ever have any plumbing issues in the home, you’ll know who to call: call us.
