Perhaps no other home system needs more attention than plumbing. You cannot put them off, because your house without a reliable water supply for cleaning, hygiene, and cooking is no longer habitable. Hire a plumber to help you keep up with how things go down.
Overflowing toilets are a common and messy problem. Whether clogged by adventurous little ones or because the fill valve is broken, an overflowing toilet requires instant action. First, turn off the water at the wall shut-off valve. Then, call a plumber for plumbing repairs.
Other typical household issues:
While greywater is often polluted with chemicals, food residue, it is not usually unsafe for health. Water leaving your home's toilets is potentially dangerous, so leave plumbing repairs involving blackwater to professionals.
Simply from constant use, toilet parts fail often. The fill valve, float ball, flapper, chain and handle arm are constantly moving. Expect to replace these several times in the life of a typical household toilet.
Sink faucet handles, valves, supply tubes, pop-up stopper and the spray and hose assembly in kitchen sinks fail frequently, though their drains prompt more calls for plumbing repairs than the moving parts.
Water heaters are prone to failure after around eight years. Angie's List recommends replacement at 10 years. Water heaters typically involve expensive plumbing repairs.
