5 Common Bathroom Plumbing Problems

Plumbing problems can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. From a small dripping faucet to an entire sewer system backup. Small problems can be easily fixed with home tools and online help however it is the big problem that can cause real harm to your household.

  1. Dripping faucets.

Dripping faucets can not only be an irritating plumbing problem but also can increase your water bill significantly if not dealt with.  The main cause to this problem is when the internal washer is worn down or dislodged over time. This can be solved easily by a qualified Plummer so give CJ Drain & Plumbing a call!

  1. Slow draining sink.

There is probably not a single homeowner who hasn’t experienced the plumbing problem of a slow drain whether that be in the tub or sink. This can lead to serious problems if neglected further. These problems are usually the result of hair or other objects clogging the drains or in a kitchen sink can be a result of food clogging the drains. This is quite a simple home fix if you have the tools or you can always get a trusted plumber to take a look! Some easy home methods are using your trusty plunger to unclog the drain. 

Secondly, you can pour down baking soda and vinegar or a chemical clog remover which can break down the blockages in the drain. Thirdly you can use a plumber’s snake to clear the blockages. Neglecting this plumbing problem can cause a full blockage over time.

  1. Low water pressure.

This plumbing problem can be a big frustration whether it hinders your showers or your bathroom sink or even the kitchen. This commonly occurs due to buildup in the pipes, leakages, or even just worn-down systems. Most of the time it is the buildup of mineral deposits in the aerator of the faucet. This can be easily fixed by soaking the faucet aerator or the shower head in some vinegar and scrubbing any loosen mineral deposits. If the plumbing problem persists it is time to get the pipes checked out!

  1. Leaky pipes.

Leaky pipes can be a cause for major concern, they can ruin your floors and furniture and this plumbing problem should not be taken lightly. The damage can also result in bugs and insects to enter your home and cause additional problems. The cause of many leaks of pipes can be seen at the joints of the pipes which can be treated by store bought fillers and fitting compounds. This DIY can be a great temporary hold to your problems and give you enough time to get it professionally fixed.

  1. Sewer system backup.

Weird smells, multiple drain damage, and toilets not working means you probably have a plumbing problem, specifically sewer system backup. This problem can be a great strain on your household, it is a big inconvenience and can be really expensive to fix. The blockage can be located on your main street or your own property. This is important because the location can determine who is responsible. Always call your water company first to determine if it is an issue you have to fix yourself. If it is on your property, then you will have to get a plumber in to fix the issue. 

The three most common causes for such a plumbing problem are firstly main sewer is clogged. You can prevent this by paying more attention to what you put down your toilet and avoiding flushing down diapers, facial tissues etc. Also be mindful of pouring grease down your drains. Second cause can be tree roots blockages that occur when branches are interfering with your pipes and are pushed into cracks in pipes. Third, it could just be due to old sewer lines made of cast iron or clay that can be worn down over time resulting in breaking or collapsing. Modern lines are now made with plastic.
