The Most Common Plumbing Problems and how to Avoid Them

It is only a matter of time until you have a plumbing problem in your home, business, or other Levittown building. If you have such a problem, don’t attempt a DIY (do it yourself) repair as it will likely backfire. Instead, lean on our Philadelphia plumbers for assistance. We perform repairs that get plumbing systems in Levittown, Philadelphia and nearby towns back in working order as quickly as possible. Here’s a quick look at some of the most common plumbing problems along with strategies to avoid those problems in the first place.

1. Faucet Leaks

A leaky faucet is cause for concern. It is possible that the addition of a new washer after sink disassembly will suffice. However, there is also a chance the problem is much more complex, necessitating the replacement of a P trap or another plumbing system component. Our Levittown plumbers are here to figure out exactly what is going on with your leaky faucet.

2. Clogged Drains

Clogged drains occur when foreign objects impede the flow of water. If your drain is clogged, it is only a matter of time until it causes significant problems such as the backup of water that leads to overflows. Our Philadelphia plumbers will clear out the clog to return your plumbing system functionality to normal. You can do your part to avoid a clogged drain by making it clear to everyone in your family that no foreign objects should be put in the toilets and sinks throughout the house.

3. Insufficient Water Pressure

A reduction in water pressure is more than just an annoyance. Low water pressure will lengthen the amount of time it takes to water plants, wash dishes and bathe. Making matters worse is you will need more water for such household chores, meaning your water bill will increase. Altering the water valves has the potential to change water pressure. However, if your pipes are leaking, you have a major problem on your hands that requires the expertise of an experienced Philadelphia plumber.

4. Water Heater Problems

A malfunctioning water heater can lead to a water-logged basement or even an explosion. Fail to drain your water heater and sediment will build up to the point that it causes problems. Ideally, your water heater will be analyzed and maintained at least once each year by our Levittown plumbers to prevent costly and frustrating problems. Our plumbers are here to ensure you don’t experience plumbing issues in the dead of winter when you need hot water the most.
