As a homeowner, we know it’s scary facing anything that could potentially damage your home. Plumbing emergencies aren't all that rare. Knowing what problems are common for others can help you quickly identify the issues your home may have and call a professional to repair them.
Clogged DrainA clogged drain; whether it’s in the shower, sink, or basement floor, is probably the MOST common plumbing issue you can have. Usually, you can easily fix this problem yourself using a snake or drain dissolving product. However, if the issue persists it may be best to contact a plumber.
Clogged ToiletThe toilet is probably the most used plumbing fixture in any home, so it’s understandable that toilet issues would be common based on use. DIY toilet fixes can be helpful in a pinch, but a persistent issue can lead to leaks, water damage, or sewage backups.
LeaksA leaky faucet or any other fixture may seem like a small problem at the beginning. A couple drops of water every few minutes isn’t such a big deal, right? Wrong. Even the smallest of leaks can cause rusting and pipe/structural damage that leads to bigger leaks or even flooding.
Washing Machine HoseIs your washing machine hose making noises? Do you notice pooling water after running a cycle? Your water hose may be cracked or improperly installed. This is usually a quick fix for any plumber and saves you the worry of rust, mold, mildew or costly damage to the washing machine itself.
Burst PipesThis problem is hugely common in northern states with colder winters. The freeze-thaw cycle of the season can cause exposed piping to rupture. If not addressed in a timely manner, this issue could lead to a complete pipe replacement.
