Plumbing Problems and Tips for Homeowners

Posted on October 4, 2016 by oozle

A leak here, a clog there: whether it’s big or small, we’ve all had our fair share of plumbing problems. Here are the five most common plumbing problems and what to do about it:

Weak Water Pressureweak water pressure

Have you ever used a shower head that, instead of spraying out water, barely dribbles out a drop? No one can rinse off soapy hair with water like that. Showerheads often get clogged due to calcium build up, which weakens the water pressure. Keep the shower head clean to avoid calcium buildup by soaking it in a vinegar and water cleaning solution.

Dripping Faucetsdripping faucet

If your faucet is dripping, something is either worn out or out of place. The most common cause of a drip comes from a worn out washer. After time and continual usage, the water located near the valve seat gets worn out from friction and pressure. Luckily these washers can be replaced and by doing so, you won’t be wasting water.

Leaking Pipesleaking pipes

There are lots of reasons why pipes leak but among them are punctures, freezing and clogs. If these leaks go unseen, it can cause damage to your home such as wall stains, bowing of floors and cracking of walls. Take inventory of your pipes to make sure that everything is functioning properly.

Running Toiletsrunning toilet

If you’ve ever heard a running toilet you know the sound. It doesn’t seem like the toilet will ever fill up. When this happens you’ll need to take off the lid of the tank to look for the problem. Check the flapper to see that it is properly sealed or make sure there isn’t a snag in the chain or string attached from the handle.

Lack or No Hot Waterout of hot water

Nothing is worse than taking a cold shower. Cold water can result as a malfunction in the water heater like a broken dip tube, too small of a water heater to service your house or calcium build-up. When it comes to water heater problems, give us a call.

Some of these problems are easy to diagnose and fix. Others are more difficult to even find. We are ready to step in at any point to help with any of your plumbing repair needs. Just call ProServ Las Vegas at (702) 425-5491 or contact us online.
