Common Problems with Bathroom Plumbing

toiletAh, the bathroom. It’s where you start your day, every day. Using the toilet, brushing your teeth, taking a quick shower before you go about your business. If there is one room in your home that you are most likely to associate with the word “plumbing,” it is a good bet that the bathroom is it. That is why trouble with your bathroom plumbing in Spring Hill, FL is such a big problem.

Unfortunately, because there is so much accessible and heavily-used plumbing in this room, you are going to run into problems with it eventually. That is when you need to call in professional plumbers to handle any plumbing repair services that you may require. Read on to learn more about some of the common bathroom plumbing problems that homeowners face, and remember to contact a member of our team at the very first sign of trouble. Problems only get worse with time.

Running Toilets

You wake up at night, disturbed from your slumber by a frightful sound—the toilet is running even though it has not been flushed in hours! Okay, so that may be a little thin for a horror movie plot, but it is alarming nonetheless. Remember, not every bathroom plumbing problem needs to be an emergency in order to justify prompt attention.

If your toilet is running without cause, the first thing that you’ll want to do is simply to give the handle a little jiggle. The flapper at the bottom, connected to the handle by a chain, may simply have gotten hung up. It may also be damaged, which will require a replacement. If there is a leak in the tank, unfortunately, you are looking at the need for a toilet replacement.

Leaky Faucets

This is a very common problem with sink and bathtub faucets, as well as showerheads. Because it is not a rapid flow of water resulting in overflowing and serious water damage, you may think that a leaky faucet is no big deal. Think again! A leaky faucet, even one dripping very slowly, can result in an immense amount of wasted water over time.

This is going to be reflected in your water bills, and there is nothing more annoying than paying for resources that you are not actually making use of. If the faucet itself is cracked, it will need to be replaced. Oftentimes, though, it is something as simple as replacing a rubber gasket.

Clogs/Backups

Whether the result of whiskers and hair caught up in bathtub or sink drains, or perhaps unflushable objects mistakenly flushed down the toilet, plumbing clogs and backups are big trouble. If the clog is limited to a single drain or fixture, then that particular drain may just need to be cleaned out.

If, however, everything is backed up, either in the bathroom or throughout the entire house, then you may have a sewer line obstruction. The best course of action, as ever, is to call our team for professional plumbing services. We’ll provide an accurate diagnosis, and we’ll be able to fix the problem successfully.
