5 Common Bathroom Plumbing Issue And How To Address Them

All households experience plumbing issues from time to time. Things wear out, get clogged, or require some regular care and maintenance. And homeowners must understand that when a small problem arises, it is best to take care of it immediately. In almost every case, a minor issue is easier and less expensive to repair and remedy than the more significant issue that it will eventually become if left unattended.

If you are handy with a few tools and don’t mind doing a little hands-on repair work and maybe watching a video or two, you can handle several of these issues. But when the job is beyond your comfort zone, it is always best to turn to the pros at Metroplex Leak & Line for fast and cost-effective solutions to all of these common plumbing issues.

Low Water Pressure- Low water pressure can be caused by a variety of issues, from a clogged shower head to low water pressure in the entire community. You can begin by examining your water fixtures, aerators, and even the main shut-off valve to your home’s water supply. Cleaning away scale can eliminate the issue in fixtures. And if you have recently turned off your water at the main valve, a partially closed valve could be the culprit. If those items are not the cause of your low water pressure, it is time to call (214) 388-4525 and have a licensed Metroplex Leak & Line pro take a look.

Leaky Pipes- Even a tiny water leak can cause a substantial amount of water damage if left unrepaired. Unless you have experience making plumbing repairs, it is best to leave this challenge to the professionals. All leak repairs made by the Metroplex Leak & Line professionals carry a full warranty on parts and labor. This means you never need to worry about the quality of the repair or the reliability of the pipe.

Running Toilet- The tank flapper and the chain are the most common components of a toilet to wear out and cost you money by wasting hundreds of gallons of water. And you can pick up these parts at a local hardware store or even on Amazon. This DIY project is a fast and affordable way to silence that running commode. But if these simple replacements don’t do the trick, then call in the pros and eliminate the potential of a serious flood in your home.

Clogged Drains- A single clogged drain in a sink, tub, or toilet can sometimes be eliminated with a plunger. But if you are finding that all of your bathroom drains are slow to clear, then it is time to call in the professionals. Multiple clogged drains are an indication of a more significant, more serious clog in your drain system or sewer line. And the only way to know that the problem is corrected is a professional drain cleaning.

Dripping Fixtures- A dripping faucet or showerhead can often be easily overlooked. You don’t recognize it as a problem because the water is running down the drain a drip at a time. You don’t realize that a single dripping faucet can waste hundreds of gallons of water each month. And the issue could be as easy to fix as replacing an O-ring or a washer. But if those easy fixes don’t eliminate the drip, call in the pros from Metroplex Leak & Line to examine the water valve. If that valve fails completely, you could be forced to turn off all the water in your home, or at least in your bathroom until a replacement is installed.

The most important tip to remember when thinking about your bathroom plumbing is that small problems have small price tags to fix. But left unrepaired, small problems grow into big problems with big price tags. So if you are not a hands-on type of homeowner, call in the pros at Metroplex Leak & Line for fast and affordable solutions to your bathroom plumbing problems. We have team members ready to answer your call to (214) 388-4525 24/7.
