Owning a home can be a great step in life! You get your own space, your ability to change or alter it in (almost) any way you would like, and the ability to put down some roots. However, if you are new to home ownership, you might be surprised at how many home repairs you are suddenly on the hook for. Instead of calling your landlord about a broken pipe, you will need to call a plumber. Here are a few of the most common residential plumbing issues that nearly every homeowner will face at one point or another.
- Dripping/leaking faucet
- Clogged drain in the sink or shower
- Clogged toilet
- Backflow in a drain
- Low water pressure
- Running toilets
- Broken or malfunctioning water heater
Every homeowner will encounter one or more of these issues over the lifetime of their home. They are all common in residential plumbing! With a good residential plumber in the back of your mind for when you encounter these problems, you can feel more confident and secure in the repairs that are made.
Although many of these residential plumbing issues can be fixed by a handyman or skilled homeowner, if you have any question about your plumbing abilities at all, you should always call a residential plumbing professional. You’ll not only save time, but you’ll also save yourself potential issues down the line that are caused by improperly repaired plumbing issues.
