5 Most Common Plumbing Problems That Homeowners Have to Deal With

Plumbers are often called to deal with plumbing issues in homes and business places across Australia. These problems could be of different types, but some of them are more common than others. We at King & Sons Plumbing can handle all types of plumbing problems on commercial and residential properties. Here are five of the most common plumbing problems in Australia and brief tips on how to fix some of them.

  1. Blocked Toilets

A blocked toilet is generally caused by some obstruction down in the pipe. This is one plumbing issue that many people cannot imagine themselves dealing with on their own, which is why professional plumbers are usually called to deal with them. You can try using a plunger to dislodge whatever is causing the blockage or even a plumbing snake if you are getting nowhere with a plunger. But of the blockage is severe, you would need to call in a professional to tackle the issue.

  1. Blocked Drains

A sink that drains slowly is often a manifestation of a problem in the drains. Hair tends to enter the drain through the bathroom sink or shower area and bathtub, while grease and oil find their way down from the kitchen sink. These objects and substances accumulate and form clogs over time, and inhibit the free flow of water. Just as in the case of a toilet blockage, a plunger can be used to dislodge any minor obstructions. You can use a good grease-removing agent to eliminate any build-up in your drains. But sometimes, these solutions are futile, and only an expert plumber can tackle a stubborn blockage in a drain.

  1. Leaky Taps

This is another common plumbing problem. The dripping sound can be rather annoying, and such leaks add to your water bill too. A faulty washer often causes this problem, which could be the result of over-tightening the tap. You would need to replace the damaged washer with a new one. However, it’s essential to check the laws in your local area, as DIY tap repairs aren’t permitted in certain places.

Other Common Plumbing Problems

Hot water system issues and weak water pressure are the other issues that can crop up on residential properties. These are some of the most common plumbing problems in Australia that homeowners regularly have to deal with. While home remedies are sometimes effective in tackling some problems, more often than not, it’s best to hire professionals for the job. DIY fixes have a way of going wrong sometimes, which can result in troublesome and expensive repairs down the line.
