Common Plumbing Problems:

Plumbing problems can be daunting and intimidating, but with the right knowledge many common issues can easily be fixed without needing to call a plumber. Let's take a look at some of the most common plumbing problems and how to fix them.


One of the most common faucet issues is when it won't stop dripping or running. This is usually caused by a worn out O-ring, which is the component responsible for keeping water from flowing when it shouldn't. To fix this issue, simply replace the faucet's O-ring with a new one of the same size and shape. If you're unsure what type of O-ring to purchase, it's worth bringing your faucet handle or faucet itself to a hardware store for assistance.


The most common toilet problem is when the water won't stop running after flushing or the toilet won't flush at all. This is usually due to a faulty fill valve that can be identified and replaced with relative ease. First, check to see if the fill valve is working by listening for water flowing when the toilet is not in use. If there is no sound of water running, chances are that the fill valve needs to be replaced.

Hot Water:

A lack of hot water can be a frustrating problem that's often caused by a broken or malfunctioning hot water heater. If this is the case, it's typically best to call a plumber as they will have the necessary tools and expertise to properly diagnose and repair the issue. However, if you're feeling adventurous, there are a few basic things that can be done to troubleshoot the problem before calling in a professional. For instance, check to see if the circuit breaker or fuses have tripped due to a power surge. If they haven't, then there may be a problem with the water heater itself and it's probably best to call in a professional plumber.

When to Call a Plumber:

Knowing when to call in a plumber versus attempting a DIY fix can help you save time and money. Although tackling plumbing issues can be intimidating, remember that many common problems have simple solutions. With the right knowledge and tools, you'll be able to confidently take on any minor plumbing problem that comes your way, but many times, it’s easier and safer to call your local plumber.
