While bathroom plumbing fixtures are designed for daily use, they are still susceptible to wear and tear. However, the signs that are associated with these complications might not be easily apparent and can be challenging to spot or determine, so you might not be able to call for professional repairs in time.
Vern’s Plumbing advises homeowners to keep an eye out for the following commonly encountered bathroom fixture issues that require fixture repair in Gainesville, VA.
A leak may not seem like a cause for immediate attention, but even the smallest of leaks can play a pivotal role in running up your water bill. A leak can be easy to spot if the leaks are happening where it’s visible, but it will obviously take longer for you to notice hidden leaks. So if you’re noticing low water volume coupled with rising water bills, consider calling for fixture repair services as you might be dealing with a leaky tap or faucet.
Constantly Running Toilets
Identifying a constantly running toilet is similar to picking up on a leak. After flushing the toilet, listening to your bathroom keenly is important. A leaky toilet has a loud dripping sound that persists long after the toilet is flushed, and this issue is sometimes due to a plumbing fixture installation that was not done correctly. If this is the case, our team of plumbing professionals can make the necessary repairs.
A properly working bathroom fixture, the water flow should be strong and forceful when the handles are cranked all the way. However, in some cases, for example, in the case of water shortages affecting a whole neighborhood, low water pressure is expected. To find out if a fixture may cause low pressure, compare the water pressure between different fixtures such as the kitchen plumbing fixtures. Isolated cases usually indicate fixture problems.
Blockages in Drains
Clogging is another issue commonly encountered by bathroom drains. Clogs are often caused by debris buildup, which Vern’s Plumbing can help resolve.
