4 Most Common Bathroom Plumbing Problems

You probably don’t want to think much about bathroom plumbing problems. But the truth is, we get calls for bathroom plumbing repairs all the time. It’s better to know what to look for and schedule service sooner rather than later when you think that something is wrong.

When you need to schedule an appointment for bathroom plumbing repairs in Kaukauna, give our team a call. We are here to help no matter how big or small your plumbing needs are. You can keep reading to learn more about the four most common bathroom plumbing services we complete and the early signs of each problem.


Bathroom leaks are very common. You might have a leaky sink faucet or a leaky shower head. Many times the problem is with the fixture itself. Sometimes our team can tighten your faucets into place so that they are more secure. Other times, your bathroom hardware is outdated and needs to be replaced. If this is the case, we can replace your faucet or showerhead with a newer piece that will eliminate the leak.

Changes in Water Pressure

It’s also common to lose water pressure. Low water pressure in a single space is usually caused by hard water buildup. Your faucet and showerhead each have mesh covers behind them to capture any sediment that may enter your water supply. Sediment comes from hard water, which means that your water supply has a high mineral content. 

Sometimes fixing a little water pressure problem is as simple as removing those faucets, rinsing them out with vinegar, and putting them back in place. Other times, low water pressure is a deeper issue within your system, like a busted pipe leading into that room. If water is leaking out somewhere before ever reaching your home, it can lower the water pressure in your bathroom.

Running Toilet

If you have a toilet that is running even after a flush, you could be using thousands of extra gallons of water each month. Before you see this surprise on a monthly water bill, give our team a call to address the problem. 

There are a variety of different toilet components that can contribute to running. No matter what the issue is, our team can get down to the root of the problem and fix it so that your toilet only uses water when it is being flushed.

Drain Clogs

It’s easy for hair, pieces of soap, and other debris to go down bathroom drains. All it takes is one or two pieces of something sticking to the side of a pipe for a clog to form. That debris begins to attract more, grow mold, and get bigger until water moves slowly as it drains slowly.

Sometimes you can use baking soda and vinegar to clear drain clogs, but never use chemical drain cleaners. They are very harsh and may end up doing more harm than good. If you have a tough drain clog that you can’t clear away on your own, let us help.
