Slow or clogged drains, leaky faucets, leaky hose bibs, faulty toilets, slow-draining sinks, and faulty water heaters are some of the most common residential plumbing problems. Leaky faucets and toilets can be extremely wasteful and expensive, as they can waste up to 2,000 gallons of water a year. Clogged drains and pipes can be caused by foreign objects such as wipes and paper. Faulty water heaters can be caused by a faulty thermostat or the accumulation of sediment in the tank.
It is important to hire a professional plumber to inspect and fix these plumbing problems as soon as possible.
