Almost every homeowner or tenant has at least a few essential tools around with which to handle minor plumbing issues. For example, a clogged drain or toilet often requires only a plunger and a little effort. Many people are capable of coping with small repairs such as worn washers or drain covers that need replacing. But larger plumbing problems need professional attention. Here are some of the most common plumbing problems encountered by plumbers in Indooroopilly and Toowong.
Anyone who has tried falling asleep with a faucet dripping in the next room knows how annoying this issue is. Also, a dripping tap adds to your water bill. The water that enters your home is under pressure as it runs through the pipes. When you turn the water off, washers form a seal that keeps more water from coming out of the tap. Over time, these rubber or silicone washers can become worn or dislodged, allowing water to trickle through and drip out of the tap. Some faucets use ceramic plates that fit together to form a seal rather than washers; these also sometimes need attention, although not as often as rubber washers.
Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure may be caused by your municipal water supply, but the more likely culprit is a sediment buildup on your faucet aerators. Water that enters your pipes contains dissolved minerals that can deposit themselves on metal surfaces. Eventually, these deposits collect on shower heads and other surfaces, slowing flow by clogging the screens.
Tired of jiggling the handle to get your toilet to flush properly and quit running? It may be time to replace the inner workings of the toilet. Typically, toilets run because the flapper valve that allows water to move from the tank to the bowl has stopped fitting properly, the fill tube has come loose, or the float has become unbalanced. Sometimes, the toilet still runs after these simple issues have been addressed; in this case, a professional plumber in Toowong or Indooroopilly can find and fix the problem.
People often find leaky pipes accidentally; they reach under the sink and find an unpleasant surprise. Leaking pipes can be an expensive nuisance. Leaks typically happen at joints, and there is no shortage of joint fillers at your local hardware store. Keep in mind, however, that these products offer a temporary fix at best. You may need to replace a length of pipe or its fittings. Plumbers in Toowong and Indooroopilly can handle jobs like these.
Slow or Clogged Drains
Often a plunger or a commercial drain cleaner is all you need to fix a partially or completely clogged drain. If you are unable to remove the clog, you may need the help of a professional plumber.
