Common Plumbing Issues and Their Solutions

In this article, we will discuss some of the most common plumbing problems that may occur and give you some ideas on how you can fix them yourself or you should seek the assistance of a licensed plumber. We will also go over some of the most common plumbing problems that can occur at home.


  1. A Slow Draining Sink

If the water in your sink drains slowly, the problem is often caused by a blocked drain or pipe. It is possible that the problem may be resolved by using a plunger to remove the obstruction, but this depends on how severe the clog is.


  1. Blocked Shower Drain

The collection of hair and other things is a common factor that contributes to slow or blocked drains in showers. Blockages may be avoided by cleaning the drain on a regular basis, at least once every 1-2 months or if water drainage becomes sluggish. 


If the problem continues to exist, or gets worse over time, consider hiring a blocked drain plumber for help.


  1. Low Water Pressure

Mineral deposits in pipes might result in a decrease in the water pressure in certain pipes. Vinegar may be used to remove buildup from your shower head.


  1. A Garbage Disposal That Is Clogged Up

In many homes, a waste disposal that is clogged is a regular source of frustration. You may twist and release the motor, which will enable you to remove any blockages that are in the way.


  1. Blockages in the Sewers

Blockage in the sewers is one of the many serious plumbing problems that may result when sewage systems get obstructed. To avoid more serious issues, it is highly recommended that you seek the assistance of a licensed plumber who can fix the sewage system.


  1. A Break in the Water Main

Breaks in water mains may be caused by cracks brought on by frost. If you have any reason to think that your pipes have been damaged, you should have an emergency plumber assess and repair them as soon as possible to avoid serious damage potentially.


  1. The Toilet Spills Water

If you notice an increase in your water bill but there are no obvious leaks coming from your taps, it’s possible that your toilet has a leak on the inside. If you want to prevent water from getting into the bowl when the toilet is flushed, check the rubber flapper and replace it if it’s broken.


There are a few plumbing problems that can be fixed on your own, but in order to prevent potentially expensive repairs, there are other problems that need the skills of a licensed plumber. Knowing when to do it yourself and when to call in a professional is imperative.
