When the plumbing in your Adelaide home is working effectively, everyone is happy. It’s as soon as problems occur that the nightmare begins. There are several common plumbing problems that wreak havoc on your home that a plumber can luckily fix easily. Below we have outlined them most common and how they can be solved.

Leaking taps
A leaking tap can create real dramas in your home. While it may not seem like a big deal, when you are living with a leaking tap it can be a real nightmare. The drip, drip, drip can keep you awake, especially if it’s coming from the sink faucet in your ensuite or bathroom across the hall. Apart from the noise being extremely annoying, it can actually end up costing you quite a bit. While you may not consider the small drip to be much water, when it’s left dripping all day it can cause a real hike to your water bill. At the first sign of a leaky tap, you should call a plumber. A plumber will examine the tap and replace any worn or broken washers that is most likely the cause of the problem. It could even be that the whole tap needs to be replaced, which can be easily performed by a professional plumber.

Clogged drains
Drains are most likely to clog in the bathroom and kitchen, where they are commonly used. Over time, it’s common for clogs to cause, as they get used day in and day out. While a drain’s purpose is to let water flow through, when a clog is formed it is unable to fulfill its role and the water gets backed up. This can be catastrophic in areas like the shower or kitchen sink, which you can’t avoid using. Fortunately, this type of plumbing problem is a bread and butter job for plumbers. Using various techniques they can solve the problem simple and effectively. Sometimes all it takes is a simple plunger to remove the blockage, which has formed on top of the water surface. Another method is unscrewing the pipe and removing it, to manually take the blockage out.

Blocked toilets
Another very common plumbing problem is a blocked toilet. The toilet gets used multiple times on a daily basis and takes quite a beating. If you are not careful with what you throw down the toilet, then a build up of waste can form, resulting in it becoming clogged. A plunger is a good tool to have in the attack of the drains, however, for stubborn blockages it will not do. Often a plumber will have a whole lot of tools ready to try and shift the blockage. A sewer snake is a favourite device that can bend around the u-bend and infiltrate the blockage. In other circumstance, it could be the pipes that actually need to be examined. Alternatively, it may be the toilet that is causing the problem. Whatever the problem is, you can trust a professional plumber to solve the problem.

Faulty water heaters
Every household relies on hot water. Whether it’s for showers, or for the washing up, it is a necessity for everyday functioning. Therefore, any problem with the hot water system will send shockwaves through your home. If you have noticed your hot water system is no longer working effectively, then there are many caused. Perhaps it’s a loose connection or a broken part causing the hot water system to stall. Most times the hot water system has a part that isn’t working effectively that needs to be fixed. A plumber can solve the problem in no time.
