We typically do not realize how much we rely on a working plumbing system. That is until an issue rears its ugly head and we begin having problems. A dripping faucet, a slow drain – everything adds up over time and causes trouble. Some of these plumbing problems will become extensive, costly repairs. Others, however, we can easily prevent and handle with ease. Homeowners are urged to take precautions and opt for professional service above all else!

Clogged Drains

You will typically notice a clogged drain immediately. You may spot water backing up as you take a shower. For a toilet clog, the signs include an overflowing toilet bowl. Sometimes, clearing the blockage restores the drain to normal, and other times require professional intervention.

To prevent clogged drains, only flush dissolvable waste products down the toilet. These items include water, human waste, and toilet-safe paper products. You may also want to watch any children. Kids do love to send their toys for a swim. Toys are a primary concern for many residential plumbers who deal with toilet clogs.

Leaking Faucets

A leaking faucet is a widespread problem in most homes and apartments. The constant drip is usually more of a nuisance than a cause for alarm. However, if left unattended for too long, that little leak could turn into extensive damage, including mold and mildew growth within the walls.

To prevent leaks, you can slow down wear from regular use (unavoidable) by turning the faucet on and off slowly, avoiding excessive pressure on the handles, and cleaning the system thoroughly on a regular basis. Watch for moisture buildup or small drips, and visible rust or white lime deposits. These are telltale signs of leak damage.
