Locking Down Leaks
Leaks are one of the most universal and common plumbing problems. It is a great idea to learn how to quickly fix minor plumbing leaks. There is no need to live your life listening to the drip-drip-drip from the kitchen faucet day after day after day. Sometimes a fix can be as simple as replacing an O-ring or tightening a washer. However, if that does not get the job done, then it is probably a good idea to go ahead and call a professional plumber.
If leaks are the #1 most common plumbing problem, then clogs are #1b. Whether you end up with a clogged sink through normal use, or you have a clogged toilet because your son thought it would be fun to flush an action figure, it is a problem that needs to be fixed. However, not all clogs are created equal. Some can be busted using a simple plunger, while others might need the attention of a plumbing snake. If neither of these techniques can get the job done, then it is best to call a plumber. If left alone, clogs can cause major problems in your plumbing system.
