The Most Common Problems Requiring a Plumber

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 80

All houses experience the most common problems requiring a plumber. A person who knows how to fix simple plumbing issues can handle some of these problems. However, it would be best to call a plumber if a house owner wants to ensure that his house is safe and his water remains clean.

One of the most annoying and persistent problems a plumber usually faces is a leaking faucet. Faucets have parts that move and wear out later on thus causing leaks. This usually requires tightening a faucet's bolt to stop the leaks. If the leaks persist, the O-ring or the whole unit must be replaced. These parts are usually found in hardware stores thus it is necessary to bring the whole unit to the store to find parts that match.

Usually a plumber would remove drains using a plunger. A chemical drain cleaner may also be used if a plunger does not do the work. When using a chemical-based cleaner, a person should protect his skin, hands and eyes. He should not try inhaling the odor. If these remedies do not work, the plumber will use a snake, a tool that clears drains. This tool is available for rent or sold at hardware stores.

Another of the most common problems requiring a plumber is a running toilet. This is when the water in the toilet bowl tank keeps on dispensing water onto the bowl. It is necessary to fix this problem because it can increase one's water bill. It would entail the same cost as a running faucet. The cause of this problem is the arm or chair of the handle on the toilet may be loose. The plumber would then reinstall the chain or the arm to fix this problem. If the problem persists, there is something wrong with the holding tank. Its flapper or ball may need to be replaced or merely adjusted. These parts can be bought in a hardware store.

Other problems plumbers face are an offensive odor that is due to insufficient water, a burst pipe or a defective wax ring. Poor flushing is because the float bell is either too low or too high. A clogged showerhead may be due to buildup of mineral deposits that need to be taken off. If the heater has no supply of hot water, this can be due to the buildup of sediments in the water tank or a damaged dip tube.

The most common problems requiring a plumber should not be left to escalate into bigger plumbing emergencies to protect your house and your water supply.
