Fixing the Top 5 Most Common Plumbing Problems

by Guest on May 7, 2013

When it comes to plumbing, you are bound to face some issues at a certain point of time. Trivial problems here and there will arise to niggle at you. Some people wait until the problem aggravates. However, it is always advisable that you nip the issue in the bud. The absolute thought of having to deal with the plumbing issues yourself may seem like a daunting task but in reality, it isn’t. Given below are some of the most common problems that people face when it comes to plumbing and easy solutions to get these problems fixed.

1.)   Less pressure of the water:

This issue is the most common one and tends to raise a person’s hackles. The problem usually lies in the faucet. There is no point in grumbling and belting out swear words. Instead, you could simply follow some simple steps to sort out the problem. Firstly, you need to check if the problem exists for both hot and cold water. If this is the situation, then the aerator is to be blamed. The calcium deposits clog up the aerator and all you need to do is clear it up by carefully removing the pipe, cleaning up the mess inside and fixing it right back up again and you have perfectly running water with the perfect pressure.

2.)   Blocking of drainage pipes:

When drainage pipes get blocked it can get very messy. There are a plethora of objects that may block these pipes. These include hair, soap, shampoo, dirt and other such things. Getting the pipe out and cleaning it will not work for this because they get blocked at the bottom and cannot be reached. However, what you can do is use a plunger or pour in some soda water crystals into the drainage pipe to clean it.

3.)   Sink draining slowly:

When the pop up collects dirt, debris and hair; this problem tends to surface. The only way to get rid of this problem is by cleaning it up. There is a tool called Zip-It, which is a plumbing tool and is easily available in the market. This tool can be used to clean it up. If you face difficulty in finding it, you could also remove the pop up, clean it and screw it right back on. It is as easy as pie!

4.)   Garbage disposal gets jammed:

This is the most common problem that any household faces. Sometimes, people tend to lose the key that comes along with it. This can get really messy and cleaning the garbage disposal is equally important. Some people may think that losing the key would mean the end of the world. However, you can use a set of Allen keys to get access to this area and un jam it. All you need to do is insert this key at the bottom of the disposal system and turn it both ways. This will set the motor free and you are good to go.

5.)   Leaking tap:

A leaking tap can send a flutter of fury all over your body as you try every little thing to get rid of this issue. A leaking tap can pose a threat to the surrounding regions as well and it is therefore, essential to take care of it before it gets out of hand. The first thing you need to do is cut off the water supply and using a wrench you must try to tighten the tap. If you still face a problem check the washers and replace it if necessary. If you still continue facing the same problem, you must take help from a professional.
