Your home’s plumbing system is more vital to your health and comfort than most people imagine. You rely on it for sanitation, cooking, cleaning and a whole lot more. Problems with your pipes or water flow can lead to a huge list of annoyances and even health problems. Here are the most common plumbing issues that people turn to a professional for. If you are experiencing one of them, then it is important to not try to go it alone. Get an experienced plumber to come out and take care of it.

Leaks

A leak may not seem so menacing, but they can actually do a lot of damage. Leaks can waste gallons and gallons of water a year, costing you money on your bills that is going to waste. Not only that but they could be the sign of larger issues. Don’t try to put “band-aid” solutions on it yourself, trust the professionals to fix it up the right way.

Low water pressure

Normally when you turn a tap on the water comes gushing out. The same goes for your shower and other water taps in your home. If you try to turn them on and only get a small trickle, then the most common culprit is low water pressure. Trying to fix this yourself without experience or training can only result in more issues. This could be caused by a break in the main line or by a build-up in the pipes. Either way, get a pair of trained eyes to take a look at it.

Running toilets

That constant gushing sound can be extremely annoying. You turn the handle, get a flush, and then it just doesn’t stop going. The toilet’s inner components are going to be out of alignment, and jiggling the handle constantly isn’t going to provide any long-term fixes. We can be out to your home quickly and have it fixed for you so you don’t have to constantly dread flushing the toilet.
