Keeping the plumbing in your Slaton, Texas, home functioning properly is crucial to maintaining your home’s comfort, as well as to stave off potentially more substantial problems. Below are some of the plumbing tasks you want to make sure to have addressed.
Clogged Toilets and Drains
While clogs can seem like a mild inconvenience at first, they can turn into serious problems if left to go on too long. When your toilet or drain is clogged, even when you’ve removed any immediate blockage from the opening, it could be a sign that something is hindering the flow of water somewhere further along the line.
Eventually, a minor clog can turn into a completely stopped-up pipe, which can be more difficult and costly to address. If you have clogging in your home, have a plumber come out and properly clear the line to prevent the problem from getting worse over time.
These may seem like simply a nuisance, with only a little water to clean up once in a while and an annoying dripping noise. In truth, a leaky pipe can lead to major water damage if left unaddressed, and it could be a sign of a more significant problem. If your connections are properly tightened and you still have a leak, it is probably a problem with the pipe and it may not be the only leak along the line. Contact your plumber to have the leak diagnosed and rectified.
Low Water Pressure in Plumbing
If your shower or faucets aren’t getting the pressure you’re used to, odds are you might have a faulty fixture. Other problems could be with your regulator, valve issues, corroded plumbing, or trouble with your main water supply. While some of these issues are simple, such as switching out your fixture, others will need the experience of a knowledgeable professional.
