Any residence, sooner or later, is going to have plumbing problems. This is true whether the home is brand new or a century old. Plumbers are there to handle those situations that you cannot manage on your own. They are there to help you solve what may seem a mystery. They are there to correct and repair a broken sewer line or a clogged drain. In fact, they are trained to help out when you, whether from lack of skill or time, cannot take care of it yourself.
Common Plumbing Problems
Several plumbing problems are familiar to most Toronto homeowners. They are the ones that can occur in any home, no matter how new the plumbing system and its accessories may be. Among the most basic are:
- Clogged Toilet
- Clogged or Plugged Drains
Depending upon the severity of the problem, calling in one or more plumbers to repair the issue may or may not be required.
A clogged toilet may result from many different factors. It may occur if a foreign object such as a toy or cloth or large fecal matter becomes lodged at a bend. In this instance, the usual methods of applying a plunger or a commercial snake may not be effective. A homeowner may have to rely on plumbers to clear it out.
Another possible causal factor is the connected waste pipes. Sediment may have built up. Alternatively, the age of the pipe may have resulted in flaking from the interior of the pipe causing stoppage. Only the help of skilled plumbers can locate and repair this problem.
One of the most common problems in any household is a clogged drain. Clogged drains may affect the flow of water in the sink, the tub, the shower or anywhere else where water is expected to go. Drains become clogged because of several reasons. Among them are:
- Hair becomes trapped and builds up, creating a snarly ball that traps other items
- Grease when poured down the sink can clog it when it solidifies in the drain pipe
- Older pipes may become corroded or flake off materials therefore clogging the flow of water and waste
If you have a clogged drain, you can attempt to clear it on your own using any of several methods. Some recommend pouring a caustic liquid down the drain. Others will apply hot water, baking soda and vinegar. Some people may use a snake – the “plumbers friend”, to get it out. If none of the methods work, call for a plumber.
Plumbers respond to a variety of plumbing issues on a daily basis. Often times, however, the most common ones have to do with clogged drains and plugged toilets. While some causes may be quickly corrected by the resident, others may require the very special skills and hands of the nation’s plumbers.
