Have you noticed plumbing issues like clogged drains, leaky pipes, running toilets and low water pressure in your Pike Road, Alabama, home? A regular maintenance plan can help keep these plumbing problems at bay.
If your kitchen sink, bathroom tub or toilet is not draining properly, you probably have a clogged drain. You can often solve the problem with a plunger. But if you have to clear the clogs too often, it’s time to seek professional help.
Clogs are usually due to wear and tear or pieces of debris getting stuck in the pipes. A drain screen can prevent larger objects from getting into the drain. Commercial drain cleaners are good for occasional use, but using them too often can damage the drain pipes.
Water leakage from pipes, if left unattended, can damage your home. Most pipe leaks start in the joints.
If you see any wet spots under the sink or elsewhere on the ground or ceiling, you should check your pipes for leakage. You can often use joint filler, a rubber sheet or plumber’s tape as a temporary fix until a plumber repairs it.
If your toilet continues running after you flush it, you’re likely wasting water due to an internal leakage. Running toilets are usually caused by faulty flapper valves, imbalanced floats and loose fill tubes. If all of these are working properly, you may need a more complex repair to fix the inner workings of the toilet.
Low Water Pressure
Clogged aerator screens, faulty shower heads and hidden leaks can all cause low water pressure. If you notice a sudden reduction in water pressure, contact a licensed plumber to identify the exact cause and address it.
