Plumbing problems are inevitable. If you’re a homeowner, you’ve probably already dealt with your fair share of them! From minor fixes like a leaky faucet to huge issues like a collapsed sewer pipe, problems with plumbing are a major inconvenience. Here are the top four most common ones and what you can do to fix them.
A leaky faucet is a bigger issue than you might think. It can increase your water bill over time and cost you money you don’t have to spend. You’ll want to check on the internal washers to fix it. Do this by shutting off the water, removing the handle and replacing the old washer with a new one.
Problems with the Water Heater
Ever been in the shower and the hot water suddenly runs out? That’s because of an issue with your water heater. Water heaters are tricky. There could be many different reasons why it’s not doing its job correctly. It’s always a good idea to call us at Gotelli Plumbing if you’re experiencing this situation.
This is the smelliest of plumbing problems – you will know that you have this problem by the stench alone. Several factors could cause this specific problem: invasive tree roots, a clog or corrosion over time. The only way to fix a sewage backup is to call a plumber. At Gotelli, we offer pipeline assessment, replacement and various sewage services.
This could be your toilet, sink or shower. No drain is safe. Toilet clogs can typically be fixed with a plunger. Avoid chemical drain cleaners like Drain-o as they will only make it worse and will make the problem more difficult to fix. A clogged drain can also be avoided by installing a drain guard.
Plumbing problems are messy. Take whatever preventative measures you can to avoid them. When they do happen? Act fast. For help with any of the above issues or a plumbing issue that’s not listed, call us today at Gotelli Plumbing for fast and reliable service.
