Top 5 Household Plumbing Problems
Point Loma Electric and Plumbing has been in business for over 32 years, and we’ve seen every plumbing problem you can think of. And while you don’t need an expert plumber to solve every problem, it’s good to know that our certified plumbers are just a phone call away to handle everyday plumbing problems listed below.
Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure can be a major inconvenience, especially when doing everyday household chores like washing dishes, cooking, or bathing. In most cases, reduced water pressure is caused by a clog in the pipe or the fixture. However, when you lose water pressure throughout the house, it’s usually a leak or clog in the main water line, which requires a professional to diagnose and repair.
A dripping or leaking faucet might seem more like an annoyance than a severe problem until you consider that you can lose hundreds of gallons of water down the drain every day –– water that you’re paying for. And, depending on the leak’s location, it could be causing unseen water damage and mold growth, which is why a water leak is a plumbing problem you must take seriously.
Corroded Plumbing Fixtures
Corroded plumbing fixtures aren’t just unsightly and embarrassing; they can cause rusty water or a drop in water pressure.
As with leaking fixtures, a running toilet can waste hundreds of gallons of water if you don’t fix it quickly. A toilet that runs continuously might be easily fixed with a simple repair, or if it’s significantly deteriorated, it may need replacing.
Slow drains are often caused by clogs in the shower or the sink. However, sometimes it’s years of mineral buildup in your plumbing system that’s to blame. Call a residential plumbing company for a plumbing system inspection to quickly get to the bottom of the problem.
Regardless of your plumbing problem, you can count on our experts to fix it right the first time –– we guarantee it!
Don’t Ignore These Signs of a Failing Water Heater
For most Chula Vista homeowners, their water heater is out of sight and out of mind until there’s a problem, and by then, it usually means a new hot water tank installation is on the horizon.
Most water heaters give off signs that they’re failing well before the system completely breaks down, so pay attention, and if you notice any of the following water heater symptoms, call a plumbing company for maintenance or repairs.
Lack of Hot Water
Have you noticed that your showers aren’t as hot as they used to be? Does it seem to take forever for the water to get hot? The most common sign of a failing water heater is not getting the amount of hot water you’re used to. As your water heater ages, minerals in the water settle to the bottom of the tank, creating a barrier between the burner and the water, which means you get less hot water than before. As the sediment hardens, it eventually leads to water heater failure.
Popping or Rumbling Noises
Another sign of impending water heater failure is a strange noise coming from the tank as the water heats. Again, this problem is typically caused by sediment buildup as it forms layers on the water’s surface, creating pockets of air boiling along with the water.
If the water coming out of your hot water tap is cloudy or has a metallic odor or taste, it could mean the tank is rusting from the inside, or it could be those pesky mineral deposits again. Falling to fix this problem can clog elements that control water flow, impacting water pressure.
Leaking Water Tank
Corrosion in the water tank can lead to fractures or cracks, which cause water leaks. Unfortunately, replacement is the only option once a water heater reaches this stage.
The best way to avoid sudden water heater failure and other water heater problems is to call a professional plumbing company and ask about their hot water heater maintenance service to keep your water heater running efficiently and extend its lifespan.
