Common Plumbing Problems
Plumbing issues are an unavoidable part of owning a house. While some issues are caused by aged fixtures or typical wear and tear on plumbing equipment, others may be caused by how certain systems are handled and maintained.
At Edge, we've seen and solved all kinds of plumbing issues, large and small! Here are some of the most common concerns our skilled plumbers deal with, as well as the typical reasons.
- FAUCETS THAT DRIP
Dripping faucets are inconvenient, inefficient, and expensive. A worn-out washer or O ring, which may be readily changed, can sometimes produce these drops. In other circumstances, the drip might be caused by rust or incorrect faucet installation.
- PIPES THAT LEAK
Leaky pipes can be caused by a number of factors, including:
- Adamant clogs
- Laying pipes incorrectly
- Corrosion of pipes
- Damage to pipe joints
- Seals or pipes with cracks
- Too much water pressure
Whatever the cause of the leaking pipes is, they must be fixed as soon as possible! The longer you overlook leaking pipes, the more harm they may do to your plumbing system and your property!
- RUNNING TOILETS
Every day, a running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water. That is a significant amount of water waste! The most frequent reasons for running toilets are as follows:
- Problems with refill tubes
- Flush valves or worn-out flapper seals
- Flapper chains that are too small
- Toilet handle corrosion
- LOW WATER PRESSURE
Water pressure problems can make it difficult to utilize almost any plumbing system in your house! Low water pressure is frequently a sign of major plumbing problems, such as:
- Corrosion of pipes
- Your home has hidden water leaks.
- Clogs in the drain or sewer
- Sewer pipes that are cracked or clogged
- LEAKS FROM HOSE BIB
During the spring and summer, a leaky hose bib is fairly frequent. Many unprotected hose bibs can shatter and leak during a long, cold winter. We recommend a frost-proof hose bib to help prevent future leaks.
- CLOGGED DRAINS
If not treated right away, drainage issues can result in health risks and even plumbing disasters. In general, a single sluggish or clogged drain in a residence indicates that a problem is limited to that particular region. Hair, soap, and other foreign things accumulate in drains over time, clogging them. Drain cleaning on a regular basis may be the best way to deal with this problem.
Sewer line difficulties are indicated by several sluggish or blocked drains. If you discover many sluggish drains in your house, call Edge immediately—especially if the problem starts with the drains in the lowest regions of your property!
- FAILURE IN SUMP PUMP
A fault with the unit or an external issue might cause sump pump failure. Sump pump failures are typically caused by:
- Switches stuck
- An excessive amount of water, such as after a severe downpour
- Drainage pipes clogged
- Installing a sump pump incorrectly
- Sump pumps that are over ten years old are prone to failure.
- HEATER LEAKAGE ISSUE
Hot water is an absolute need in every home. When water heaters fail to produce enough or any hot water, homeowners may face a plumbing emergency! Water heater difficulties are typically caused by factors such as:
- Failures of heating elements
- Corrosion or sediment accumulation in systems
- Electrical connections that are loose or faulty
- Inadequate water heater installation
- The improper size or kind of system to meet the demands of a residence
