Bathroom plumbing problems can be inconvenient and frustrating, especially when they interfere with your daily routine. Recognizing common bathroom plumbing issues allows you to address them quickly and avoid further damage.
Let’s look at the four most common bathroom plumbing repairs and when to call a pro:
- Drainage Problems. Among the most common bathroom plumbing problems are clogged drains in sinks, bathtubs, and showers. Hair, soap scum, and other debris can build up in the pipes and cause them to clog. Minor clogs can often be cleared with a plunger, but persistent or severe clogs may require professional assistance. A skilled plumber can clear obstructions using specialized tools and techniques.
- Leaky Faucets and Showerheads. Leaky faucets and showerheads can waste water and raise utility bills. In many cases, replacing a worn-out washer will solve the problem. If the fixture is damaged, contacting a professional plumber to repair or replace it is best. Don’t ignore this small but costly problem.
- Running Toilets. A toilet that is constantly running can waste water and cause noise disturbances. A damaged flapper, a malfunctioning fill valve, or an improperly adjusted float are the most common causes of a running toilet.
- Low Water Pressure. Low water pressure in your bathroom sink or shower can be inconvenient and could indicate a more significant problem with your plumbing system. Clogged aerators, clogged pipes, and problems with the water supply line are all common causes. A qualified plumber can identify the issue, recommend a solution, and restore proper water pressure.
