What Are the Most Common Plumbing Problems?

There are many common plumbing problems that our team has experience. Every property is unique which means that residential and commercial properties will experience different kinds of common pipe issues. However, there are some universal plumbing problems that pipes may experience no matter what type of building they are a part of.

Leaking Fixtures

Standard appliances and fixtures can experience natural wear and tear with everyday use that causes them to experience leaks. Leaking fixtures such as leaking sinks, toilets, showers, and more can be a simple fix or could require a full repair.

Clogged Drains

Clogged drains are extremely common, and they can lead to a larger implication of something larger going on within your pipes. It is a clog down the pipe which is causing everything to back up into the drain. Both of these can lead to a lot of problems but are often easy to fix. Sometimes the problem is bigger and requires a more extensive fix, but we do everything we can to avoid extensive repair if one is not necessary.

Low Water Pressure

Not having the proper water pressure is another issue we see in Indiana pipes. This can be due to a clog in the water pipe, old pipes that have started to crack and leak, or even due to a pipe collapse where only a minimal amount of water is able to make it through.

Lack of Hot Water

Water heaters not giving hot water is another we tend to hear about on a regular basis. This can again be something simple like a thermostat problem, or it could be that your water heater is old and needs to be replaced. The only way to know what the problem is is to have us come out and take a look.

Below are some of the most common plumbing problems and for which you’ll need to call our team of highly-skilled plumbers in Indianapolis, IN, and the surrounding areas: 

How to Avoid Plumbing Problems

The best way to avoid most of these common plumbing problems is to make sure you have regular maintenance done on your pipes. This means us coming out and inspecting your pipes to ensure they are in good working order. Then, regularly having your pipes and drains cleared out so there is nothing that could stop the flow of water or drainage. The more you maintain your pipes, the less likely you are to have a plumbing emergency pop up that you did not see coming.
