Plumbing issues are one of the costliest problems affecting the home, and they’re one of the biggest hassles to fix. From leaky pipes to clogged drains, common plumbing concerns are a major headache for homeowners. Repairs are often time-consuming and expensive, but preventing these household plumbing issues in the first place is an easy and efficient way to save money. Explore the following list of five common plumbing issues homeowners face and ways to prevent them.

Leaky Pipes

A leaky pipe or faucet is a steady drip of money out of your wallet, but it can often be an easy fix. If you can find the source of the leak early, the repair could be as simple as tightening a fastener on the pipe. If the leak is coming from a faucet instead of a pipe, the simplest solution is usually to replace the faucet. Either one of these five-minute solutions can save hundreds of dollars over the course of a year.

Clogged Drains

Clogs and blockages are a frustrating — and potentially costly — problem common to any household. As with leaks, you can either fix or prevent them by using several remedies to correct clogged drains, such as monthly baking soda treatments. At the first sign of a drain blockage, addressing the clog can solve the problem. If you can’t see the blockage, hot water and some detergent may be enough to remove it without having to resort to more expensive methods.

Running Toilets

Besides being a noisy annoyance, constantly running toilets can waste hundreds of gallons of water in a year. When you notice a toilet that doesn’t seem to stop running, check the tank for blockages or a disconnected chain to the plug. Checking the tank could mean the difference between an immediate fix to the problem and having to call a plumbing service.

Low Water Pressure

Faulty water pressure is a common complaint among homeowners, especially those living in older houses. Although low pressure may be the result of an internal leak or faulty pipe somewhere hard to reach, you can take a few steps on your own before checking these more difficult possibilities.

If the problem is a leaky pipe somewhere you can easily access, the same methods you would use for any leaky pipe may solve the problem. The solution may be as simple as replacing the showerhead.

Water Heater Failure

Issues with the water heater are one of the most intimidating plumbing problems plaguing homes. While fixing a water heater by yourself is dangerous, you can take some steps on your own to prevent a more costly failure down the line. Manufacturers recommend yearly maintenance, and this maintenance can be cheaper than an emergency fix when you suddenly find yourself taking an ice-cold shower.

While household plumbing issues are often a major headache and cost much money, you can take easy steps to prevent and avoid them. From simpler problems such as leaky pipes to more intimidating concerns such as faulty water heaters, keeping an eye on potential problems and fixing them before they get out of control can save you much time, money, and frustration.
