Every family will encounter one or another pipeline problem sooner or later. Immersion kitchen faucets, bumpers or running toilets are very common plumbing problems. Some of these problems have simple fixes that you can handle yourself. However, there are some problems, such as invisible pipe repairs that you won't be able to handle. You will have to call a professional plumber to fix it. Let's take a quick look at common pipeline issues:
Noisy pipeline from
– Noisy pipes or water hammers are common household plumbing problems. This noise may start with a soft tap and may develop into a loud hammer. Loose pipes, water in the air chamber or very high water pressure are the cause of these noises. Plumbers must be required to perform pipeline repairs and must be thoroughly inspected on the piping system.
Drip faucet from
– Different types of faucets in the kitchen and bathroom. Compressed faucets have washers that can wear out during repeated use. In some cases, the threads of the washer wear and cause water leakage. In this case, the washer must be replaced, only a pair of pliers and a screwdriver are required.
Spherical and disc shaped faucets usually have only one handle. These faucets are more durable than compressed varieties. However, if a leak occurs, the entire unit must be replaced.
Blocked pipe from
– Blocked pipes can cause water to flow back in the sink or toilet. There is always a elbow-shaped tube under the bathroom or kitchen sink. It catches dirt and debris and can clog over time. You can try using a plunger and an enzyme-based drainage cleaner. If it does not work, unscrew the elbow and remove any debris.
If it is a toilet block, use a plunger. This usually solves the problem. Alternatively, you can use a pipe snake to unblock it. If none of this helps, call the plumber.
Leaky shower head from
– This is another very common pipe problem. If there is any leakage near the arm, the gasket must be replaced. The shower head must be unscrewed from its adjustment ring. If you notice a change in water pressure in your shower, it may be the cause of mineral accumulation. Clean all perforations and the inside of the shower head and apply some Vaseline to the shower ball.
Running the toilet from
– Sometimes the valve system will break or wear. In some cases, all that is required is to attach the chain to the hook. It is also possible to replace the entire internal mechanism.
