When dealing with common plumbing problems, it’s important to know what you’re looking for. If you want to properly tackle your plumbing issues, you first need to understand what’s causing them. In this video, a residential plumbing repair expert goes over the most common plumbing problems and what you can do to address them.
One of the most common plumbing problems is a backed up toilet.
Most times when a toilet is backed up and no other appliance is having issues, it means there’s a problem solely with the toilet. When this is the case, the right plunger is usually enough to solve the issue. Sometimes residential plumbing repair isn’t so complicated, but to fully understand the severity of what’s going on with the toilet, proper analysis must be done. The last thing you want to do is escalate the problem by making a mistake trying to fix it.
Another common problem is a clogged up garbage disposal. If you hear an ugly sound coming from the disposal whenever you turn it on, it’s probably jammed. This is usually a pretty easy fix. To unclog the disposal you’ll need to turn it off then reach into it manually to pull out whatever is clogging it up. Once you plug it back in it should be working just fine.
