Common Bathroom Plumbing Problems In 2021

It helps if you know how to handle some of the most common bathroom plumbing problems. This can help prevent even bigger problems in the future. Read below to learn more about common bathroom plumbing problems we see. 

Clogged Toilet 

If you have got a plunger lying around and have not been able to solve the problem, that can be frustrating and embarrassing. But don’t worry, as a licensed plumbing company in Fox Valley for decades, we have seen it all. There is no shame in having to call a plumber for a clogged toilet. Other concerns we hear often is the flush isn’t working properly or the water level may be insufficient or overflowing. The toilet may become unusable after a short time if this problem is left unaddressed.

Running Toilet

 Do you hear water running even when the toilet is not in use? This isn’t only annoying because of the sound it makes, but it may also cause leaks and flooding, and can lead to a serious waste of water. Often times a running toilet is an easy fix but if your toilet is older and continually having issues, this could be a sign it is time to replace it.  

Leaking Faucet

Water continues to drip no matter how hard or tight you turn the tap or knob. Dripping faucets or showerheads are a source of significant water loss if you let the problem go, and will cause a spike in your water bill. One of the more common issues we have seen come up when it comes to bathroom plumbing problems in Fox Valley. Our friends at McQuillan Bros, who offers faucet repair in Saint Paul, recommend getting this fixed immediately. A leaky faucet can add up fast.

Slow Drain 

The water on the floor, sink, or tub may take a very long while to subside, or puddles often remain no matter how much time has passed. This is never a plumbing emergency but can be a sign of a larger unseen plumbing problem so we encourage you to have your slow drains inspected and even a camera inspection is done by a plumber if needed. 

Water Pressure Problems 

Water pressure may be too low, making it hard to get a sufficient amount of flow from the faucet or shower. This may be caused by various reasons such as water supply issues, built-up sediments inside the faucet, or leaking pipes.

Leaking Pipes 

Puddles under a pipe, flooding, insufficient water supply, and water leaks are some of the glaring signs that there might be a hole or clogging in your pipes. If you find the hole, you may cover it up with plumber’s tape or a suitable adhesive while waiting for the plumber to arrive. Leaking pipes can turn into a huge disaster.

Some of these common bathroom plumbing problems can be addressed with temporary fixes. But if they are ignored they may turn out to become bigger and costlier issues. Be careful DIYing any pipes, valves, and other components in your plumbing system without consulting with a professional plumber. The best approach is to call your trusted plumbing contractor and let their team assess the damage, come up with recommendations and implement the solution that they have suggested and you have agreed upon. After the work is done, make sure to schedule routine maintenance in the next few months to detect and address issues early, if any, and to avoid similar problems in the future.
