The Most Common Plumbing Problems

If you are having some plumbing problems in your home, you are probably not alone. There are a number of plumbing problems that can cause issues in your home or business. If you do not feel comfortable tackling these problems on your own, Black Mountain Plumbing in San Diego has the knowledge and experience to manage any plumbing problems quickly and effectively

Dripping Faucets

If you’ve ever tried to go to sleep with a dripping faucet in the next room or wrestled with a kitchen sink that didn’t that dripped through the night, you know how irritating this common a problem this can be. A dripping faucet also drives your water bill higher. A single faucet can waste hundreds of gallons of water a literally sending your hard earned money down the drain.

Water entering your house is under pressure to move it through the pipes. When you turn off the tap, rubber or silicone-based washers form a water-tight seal that prevents more water from pressing its way through the pipes and out of the faucet. Over time, washers can become stiff, torn or worn, enabling a small trickle of water through and producing that bothersome drip. While you can replace washers yourself, the repair work task can be more of an obstacle than you might anticipate without specialized devices. If the leak has actually gone on for a extended period of time, the valve seat may become worn or rusty, demanding a more engaged repair that’s best left to a plumbing professional.

 

Running Toilets

Sometimes you may hear your toilet start to spontaneously fill up, as though somebody had actually flushed it. A toilet that cuts on and off by itself, or runs intermittently, has an issue that plumbing contractors call a running toilet or a phantom flush. The cause is an extremely slow leakage from the tank into the bowl. Do you realize that a running toilet can squander approximately 200 gallons daily? That’s a great deal of water waste!
Many home owners go months, if not years, without having this concern fixed or perhaps given a look at by a professional, licensed plumber. What you need to know is that a running toilet is an internal water leak. For that reason, if you neglect the issue this might increase your water bill due to the gallons of water being squandered daily.

So why exactly do some toilets run? There are a handful of reasons why this can happen to some toilets and not the others. The toilet flapper could be worn out, the chain linked to the flapper could be inadequate, or the toilet tank float ball and float arm could be working incorrectly. The tank of the toilet is rather intricate, so it’s constantly best to have a licensed and knowledgeable plumbing professional identify and repair the issue.

Sluggish or Clogged Drains

When the water that enters into your sink, tub or toilet won’t head out, you probably have a partial or total clog. In a lot of cases, your reliable plunger can fix the problem. Plungers utilize air pressure to dislodge a clog, but they can’t remove it totally. Commercial drain cleaners and clog eliminators are safe for the majority of drains for periodic usage, but these caustic products can damage some pipe materials if made use of too often. If you’re dealing with drain obstructions on a regular basis, it’s time to us.

Even if you do not have a total clog, particles in pipes can slow drainage to a drip. Shine a flashlight into the drain and see if you can spot the issue. A pair of pliers or tweezers might be able to reach a clump of hair or fallen bottle cap that’s obstructing your pipes. Install drain screens to prevent hair or sediment from finding its way into the drains.
