It’s not uncommon to experience any of the plumbing problems listed directly below:
The water that enters your home does so at a rate of pressure that suffices to push it through pipes effectively. The washers in your home – whether rubber or silicone-based – form a water-tight seal to prevent more water from moving through and out of the faucet once you turn off the tap. Eventually, after enough wear and tear from normal usage, washers will have a tendency to become stiff, dislodged, or damaged, which allows water to seep through and create the thoroughly annoying and all-too-common drip. If you don’t have the specialized tools for it, replacing the washers on your own could prove more trouble than necessary. It’s important to acknowledge that not all sinks have washers to prevent unwarranted water flow: Durable ceramic plates are the go-to seal for ceramic taps, also known as disc or canister taps. Though more low maintenance, they are trickier to repair than their washer counterparts. It would be in your best interest to contact a professional plumber in this case.
LOW WATER PRESSURE
Low water pressure is easily observed when water should be gushing out of your faucets, but ends up softly trickling instead. This problem may not directly related to the pipes in your home; it’s most likely an issue with the municipal water supply. A break in a main line could reduce your water pressure, but it’s rare that that is the case. More likely than not, the water that is entering your pipes is carrying dissolved minerals and eventually depositing them on metal surfaces. If you don’t have a filtration system, these deposits can collect on the inner surfaces of aerators and shower heads, which in turn clogs screens and obstructs flow.
Sure, jiggling the handle after each use could temporarily solve the issue, but a more effective way to ensure your toilet stops running after flushing is to replace its inner workings. Typically, toilets run when the flapper valve no longer fits properly, the float is imbalanced, or the fill tube comes loose. On occasion, there is a more complex reason for a running toilet; to test a properly working flapper valve, add a few drops of food coloring to the upper tank and wait about 20 minutes. If there is any hint of tinted water when you go check, your flapper valve is proving ineffective.
Leaks usually happen at joints in pipes or their fittings. Replacing pipes or leaky U-joints under your sink aren’t complex repairs, but they are certainly messy ones. Calling a professional in these instances could save you hassle and clean-up. In the meantime, using a compression clamp with either a rubber sheet or leak tape should temporarily stall the problem.
SLOW OR CLOGGED DRAINS
When the water you temporarily let in to your sink, tub, or toilet doesn’t find its way out quickly, you may have a clog – partial or otherwise. A plunger can typically work wonders in these instances. An extra step would be to see if you can spot the problem in the drain by shining a light on it. You could potentially use a pair of pliers or tweezers to reach whatever may be obstructing your pipes. A good preventative measure in this instance would be to install a drain screen.
