The Handle on Plumbing


At some point in everyone’s life, he or she will need to check or fix his or her plumbing. However, if one does not know anything about plumbing, it makes it hard to know what kind of plumber you need for the job! There are four common, and often reoccurring, plumbing issues that everyone should know about:

  • Dripping Faucets. When you go to bed that night, you close your eyes, and just when you are about to fall asleep… *drip* *drip* you hear the leaky faucet. Nothing drives a sane person insane faster than a dripping faucet in the house.
  • Leaky Pipes. This issue is a little harder to notice because it requires you to look for it. Once every couple of months, you should check the pipes in your house to make sure that they are not leaky and leaving pools of water.
  • Running Toilets. This will sound as if you are continually flushing it and often your water tank will not refill with water. If your toilet is running, you should not continue using it. Instead, you need to have someone fix it as soon as you can.
  • Low Water Pressure. Do you ever go to turn on a shower and the water stream just barely squirts out and you are wondering how you could ever take a shower with a weak stream? This is low water pressure, which could be as simple of a fix as replacing a shower head or calling in your trusted plumber!

Plumbing issues are not limited to the four mentioned above but they are the most common “everyday” problems that most people face. When in doubt, research local plumbing services in Teignmouth and call on the help of a trusted plumber!
