Common Plumbing Problems


Got a plumbing problem? Read on to learn more about several of the most common issues and what to do about them.




The dreaded leak can be a homeowner’s - or renter’s -  worst nightmare! Commonly occurring around bathtubs, showers, drains, sinks and toilets, leaking pipes can cause rot and other damage that is very expensive to remedy.


Noisy Pipes


In some scenarios, a plumbing problem can be detected by noise, such as banging, in your pipes. This can be caused by trapped air, faulty ball valves, trapped air, loose fitting washers, excess movement and more.


Water Pressure


Water pressure is another common plumbing complaint. Impacted by not only your property’s location, height and type but also your appliances, others’ water use and the time of day, insufficient water pressure can make chores such as washing dishes and showering even more of a chore.


What To Do


When it comes to leaks, noisy pipes and water pressure issues, contacting a professional is the way to go. From finding and fixing a leak in your shower enclosure to securing cacophonous pipes and setting water systems to the statutory minimum pressure level, licensed plumbers have the answer.
