The Most Common Plumbing Problems and How to Avoid Them

Plumbing problems can be a source of frustration and inconvenience. At Gallegos Plumbing, we have encountered and resolved numerous plumbing issues over the years. 

Here are some of the most common problems we have encountered and how to avoid them:

  • Clogged Drains. Clogged drains are a common plumbing problem that can disrupt your daily routine. To avoid this issue, be mindful of what you pour down your drains. Avoid putting food scraps down the kitchen sink, and use drain covers. Regular drain cleaning can also help prevent clogs.
  • Leaky Faucets. Leaky faucets waste water, increasing your water bill. To avoid this problem, fix any dripping faucets promptly. Often, a worn-out washer or seal is the culprit, and can be replaced easily. 
  • Running Toilets. A running toilet can waste a significant amount of water and lead to increased water bills. The most common cause is a faulty flapper valve or a defective fill valve. Check your toilet periodically for any signs of running water or unusual noises. 
  • Low Water Pressure. Low water pressure can be frustrating, especially when it affects your showers and faucets. It is often caused by mineral buildup or sediment in your pipes. Regularly clean or replace your aerators and showerheads to improve water flow.
  • Water Heater Issues. Water heater problems, such as lack of hot water or inconsistent temperatures, can be disruptive. Flushing the tank annually can help remove sediment buildup, prolonging the lifespan of your water heater.

By being proactive and addressing these common plumbing problems promptly, you can avoid more significant issues and save yourself from unnecessary stress and expenses. However, if you encounter any complex plumbing problems or require professional assistance, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

How Often Do You Need To Schedule Plumbing Maintenance?

The frequency of plumbing maintenance depends on various factors, including the age of your plumbing system, the type of pipes and fixtures you have, and your usage habits.

However, here are some general guidelines:

  1. Regular Inspections: It's a good idea to have a professional plumber inspect your plumbing system annually. They can identify any potential issues before they become major problems.

  2. Drain Cleaning: Consider scheduling drain cleaning annually to prevent clogs and maintain proper drainage.

  3. Water Heater Maintenance: If you have a water heater, it's recommended to flush the tank and check the anode rod annually for optimal performance.

  4. Leak Checks: Keep an eye out for leaks and address them promptly. Check for water stains, mold, or dampness in areas around pipes and fixtures.

  5. Pipe Material: The material of your pipes can influence maintenance needs. For example, older homes with galvanized steel pipes may require more frequent maintenance than homes with newer PVC pipes.

  6. Usage Habits: If you have a large household or use a lot of water, you might need more frequent maintenance. Similarly, if you have hard water, it can lead to mineral buildup that requires attention.

Ultimately, annual inspections and addressing issues promptly can help prevent major plumbing problems and extend the lifespan of your plumbing system. If you're unsure about the specific needs of your plumbing, consulting with a professional plumber is advisable.
