Being a home owner can be difficult at times. Sure, it’s nice to know that the space you’re living in is your own, and you won’t have to worry about things like rent or have to consider and the reconsidering each and every renovation that you’d like to make. But what happens when something breaks? There’s no landlord to call. What happens when there’s an issue with the plumbing? You call yourself because, well, you are indeed your own landlord. So yes, it may be nice to not have to answer to someone else in certain situations, but when there’s a problem, the fact that all the responsibilities fall on your head and weight your shoulders down is not exactly the thing that you like about owning a home.

Plumbing problems can be a disaster. Water leaking from places that it shouldn’t be. You’ll have to run for a bucket and the trash can and everything else that you can catch mounts of water in. You’ll have to spend your day standing by with a mop and more than a couple of sheets of newspaper not knowing where to start and where things will end. It is no fun at all.

What are the common Plumbing problems one has in their home?

So when someone refers to the plumbing in your home, they’re talking about the drains, pipes and valves, everything responsible for you being able to having drinking water, showering water, toilet flushing water, laundry doing water. All the water in your home that is not store bought is a part of your plumbing system.

The most common problems people experience in home are:

  • Dripping. Not only is this a very common problem in many households, but it’s also an annoying problem. You’ll hear the drip, drop, drip, drop sounds day and night, in your dreams even. No matter how hard you turn the faucet, it continues. Sure, it probably won’t flood your home, but it may flood your water bill.
  • Leakage. Small leaks perhaps don’t seem like that much of a big deal. They are nothing that a couple sheets of newspaper every couple of hours can’t cure. Big leaks, on the other hand, will drive you up the wall. You’ll be running back and forth with the mop, trying to avoid slipping and breaking something on the way to clean it up. But what the problem is with all leaks is that they cost money. If they’re not taken care of you can be looking at a very long water bill.
  • Backed up drains. This is a very annoying and yet very common problem. It probably won’t cost you anything because there’s no water being wasted, but at the same time it’s unsightly to look at. There’s nothing worse than trying to wash a few plates and having to wait an extremely long time before the water disappears from the sink. The same goes with the bath tub and shower. If you’re not the only person living in your home and you’re stuck with a faulty drainage system then, the mornings will more than likely be a disaster for you. When one person gets out of the shower, you’ll have to wait a considerable amount of time before that water has been sucked in before the other even think about getting in the shower.
