DIY Guide to 15 Common Plumbing Problems & Solutions

This blog post will provide a comprehensive overview of some of the most common plumbing issues and how to diagnose whether it’s a more significant issue or something you can resolve yourself.

So let’s get started with tackling those pesky household plumbing problems!

The cause of this problem generally lies in worn-out washers and loose connection points in the pipe.

Dripping Faucets

Hair, grease, and other materials can get stuck inside the pipe leading to an obstruction that slows down the drainage process.

Slow Draining Sink or Tub

It could indicate an aged pipe weakened over time or a broken joint or seal. It is also possible for faucets and fixtures to leak due to corrosion, excessive pressure, or rocking when installed improperly.

Leaky Pipes

This could be due to a faulty flapper valve, worn out flush valve seal, or a clogged fill tube, causing too much water to leak from your tank and into the toilet bowl.

Running Toilet

Most often, this is due to items being flushed down the toilet that should not be. These items range from paper towels and disposable wipes to toys, toothbrushes, and other miscellaneous objects.

Clogged Toilet

Low water pressure can result from many underlying factors, such as high home water demand, broken or blocked pipes, or faulty backflow valves.
