Common Plumbing Problems Faced by Homeowners & How to Prevent Them
Homeowners often encounter various plumbing problems that can range from minor issues to major emergencies. Being aware of common plumbing problems and taking steps to prevent them can save homeowners time, money, and frustration.
Clogged drains are one of the most common plumbing problems faced by homeowners. They can be caused by a build-up of hair, soap, grease, and other debris. To prevent clogged drains, avoid pouring grease down the drain, use a drain strainer in your shower and sink, and avoid flushing non-biodegradable items down the toilet.
A toilet that constantly runs can waste a significant amount of water and increase your water bill. The problem is often caused by a faulty flapper valve or a worn-out flapper chain. To prevent this, check your toilet’s flapper valve and flapper chain regularly and have them replaced if they show signs of wear and tear.
Burst pipes can be caused by a variety of factors, including extreme cold, frozen pipes, and corrosion. To prevent burst pipes, make sure that your pipes are properly insulated, especially in areas where the temperature drops below freezing. Also, keep an eye out for signs of corrosion on your pipes and have them replaced if necessary.
