Common Bathroom Plumbing Problems

drain-trapWhen you think of the bathroom, you are immediately going to think of its plumbing fixtures. The toilet, the sink, the bathtub, etc. The bathroom is, along with the kitchen, the area of your home where you have the most direct interaction with your residential plumbing system. It is also the area where you are probably most likely to run into trouble with your plumbing system. Partly this is due to the fact that there is such a high concentration of plumbing around you.

It’s also partly due to the amount use this room receives. That leads to wear and tear, and that leads problems over time. Fortunately for you, in a way, is the fact that you’ll at least notice most bathroom plumbing problems pretty promptly. After all, you are using this room and its fixtures every day, along with everyone else in your home, right? That means the quick recognition of problems with bathroom plumbing in Spring Hill, FL.

What Problems Might I Encounter?

Quite a lot, actually. When your bathroom plumbing system is professionally designed and installed by plumbers who you know you can trust—yes, just like ours—you can count on enjoying a highly dependable performance from that system. That being said, of course, there is no way in which to make your bathroom plumbing system 100% reliable. Pipes and plumbing fixtures may not be highly complex mechanical devices, but they are subject to operational problems here and there.

  • Leaky faucets. Is a leaky faucet an emergency? No, not really. Is a leaky faucet a problem that you can just ignore and leave to fester? No, definitely not. Over time, even “minor” leaks are going to result in serious waste of water. Along with that waste comes the cost of that water to begin with. Emergency or not, all bathroom plumbing problems deserve prompt attention.
  • Running toilets. Again, this might not be an emergency, but again, you’ll be wasting a lot of water. You need a dependable performance from your toilet, for obvious reasons. The last thing that you want is to be unable to flush it because the tank just won’t fill up. There are a few different reasons why a toilet may start to run, from a misplaced flapper to a leak in the tank that will demand replacement.
  • Shower/bathtub leaks. If you notice water pooling around the bathtub fixture in your home, then you are definitely going to want to have that problem resolved immediately—provided that there a problem to solve. It sounds silly, but make sure that you’ve actually got a leak, and not just family members who are careless about drying off before exiting the shower or bath!

Remember, damp conditions will lead to mold growth and other biological pollutant issues. This in turn leads to wood rot, warped floors, etc. You may think that you can tolerate a plumbing issue or a small leak for a while longer. But can your home?
