Three Common Household Plumbing Issues

Hey Neighbors!

Plumbing emergencies are among the most impacting and expensive household complications. A malfunctioning water heater or overflowing toilet literally puts your life on hold.

In these situations when D.I.Y. just won’t do, it’s best to seek out professional plumbing in Los Angeles. If you encounter any of the following three common plumbing issues, a professional plumber can help.

1. Clogged Drains

Clogged drains, whether in the sink or the shower, are a common problem for homeowners. While most problems can be taken care of with a little drain cleaner, some clogs have built up over time and require a professional solution.
To prevent clogs, remove hair from the drain and clean soap scum from the shower. To avoid kitchen sink clogs, avoid draining hot oil and other substances down the sink. This solidifies over time and creates blockages that are difficult to clean.

2. Flooded Toilet

An overflowing toilet is caused when the toilet tank continues running long after flushing. While this can sometimes be repaired simply, more serious solutions require a plumber. This is especially true if your toilet is overflowing to the point that it may damage tiling or linoleum.
The plumber may recommend new toilet parts such as a flapper valve or float arm. These are generally inexpensive.

3. Burst Pipes

Burst pipes are a homeowner’s nightmare in the winter. Caused when ice expands and cracks the pipe, burst pipes are expensive and impossible to repair without a professional’s help.
Before you call your plumber, however, try to limit the damage by thawing out the pipe. Do so without lighting an open flame, as this can cause the pipe to split further. Also make sure to turn off the main shutoff valve.
Symptoms of a burst pipe include leaks, dampness, and mold. If your pipe has not yet burst, limit the damage by locating the source of the leak and switching it off. Then, call a plumber.

Finding a Plumber

 If you’re unfamiliar with the market for plumbing in Los Angeles, ask friends, neighbors, and co-workers for references. Hitting up these three groups of people is sure to turn up a positive recommendation. Even if it doesn’t, check online listings for local plumbers with good prices and reviews.
