If you deal with plumbing problems on a regular basis, you know just how unpleasant the experience can be. Whether it’s dealing with a leaky faucet or a broken pipe, these are some plumbing problems that are just never pleasant to have around the house. What might be even worse is if you don’t notice any of these plumbing issues until they become severe – which you’ll find out in this blog post!
There is no hot water!
Don’t take for granted that you will always have hot water.
The first thing to do when you have trouble with hot water is to check the thermostat. If the thermostat says that you have hot water, but there is nothing coming out of your faucets, then your problem is probably not with the plumbing itself. It could be that the heater itself has gone bad and this problem can be solved by calling a plumber.
If the heat hasn’t turned on at all, then it’s possible that something caused your breaker to trip. You should always check for circuit breakers before calling for a plumber. If you find that one or more of them are tripped, then reset them and everything should work just fine again.
Water stains on walls or ceiling?
If the spots that look like rust or water stains are coming from the ceiling below then it is probably a leak in your plumbing and it needs to be fixed. The problem often starts with an innocent leak, but the homeowner may not notice it for quite some time. Typically this means that the leak is coming from one of your toilet’s flapper valves. You may not see any leaks at the bowl of the toilet, but you can actually hear them when they happen. If you do have a leak in your toilet, your house can get damaged over time if this is not fixed as well as expensive repairs needed for your plumbing system.
Leaky faucet can be a serious problem, especially if it is not attended to on time. A leaky faucet can cause major structural damage to the building and even result in water damage to its contents. An average of 10 gallons of water per day is wasted by just one leaking faucet, which equals up to 3,650 gallons of water in a single year! So if you have an older home with plumbing fittings, then you should definitely look into fixing that leaky faucet as soon as possible.
Loud Continuous Sink
If your sinks are loud, then you may have a problem with the drain pipes below. The most common cause of loud kitchen sink is an improperly installed or worn out drain pipe. The other possible causes can be related to the plumbing between the wall and floor, where a threaded plastic fitting is attached to the sink’s bottom supply line.
Debris Coming Out of Tap
This is a very common and often very serious problem, especially in houses with old plumbing. It is caused by the fact that the water pressure in your city is higher than inside your home. The pressure difference causes air to be pushed into the pipes in your house. When the air pressure inside the pipe drops (when you open the tap), water from inside the pipe is pushed out, taking most of the accumulated debris with it.
You may have a buildup of sediment in your water supply line. The pipe may even be partially clogged by lime scale or other such deposits from hard water.
Debris in tap water can have very serious health consequences, so call in a certified plumber immediately if you find this happening. A Plumber will be able to flush out the pipes, and if this does not solve the problem then there may be a fault with your plumbing.
Plumbing problems can come in many different forms, but ignoring them is a bad idea. Small leaks and clogs can lead to bigger issues down the road, and they’re expensive to fix when they’re not fixed properly from the beginning. Check your water bill every month to spot trouble early on.
