In Riverside, CA, plumbing issues benefit from a dry climate. We don’t get many floods here, which means there aren’t a whole lot of plumbing problems beyond our control. When issues arise with your plumbing, it usually has a very specific cause, which means a trained professional can hunt it down and enact repairs without too much trouble. There are plenty of qualified plumbers in the area, and we’ve seen our share of tricky issues. Here is a list of some common plumbing repairs in Riverside, CA.
- Stopped up drain. Drains can become clogged with any number of items, ranging from greasy food droppings to toothpaste in your bathroom sink. They gather in S-bends or other tight corners, or just stick to the sides of the pipes. The more they build up, the harder it is for water to drain until you have no choice but to clear it. Many people turn to store-bought drain cleaners to correct the problem, but cleaners can struggle to do the job, while improperly deployed snakes can damage your pipe. A trained professional knows how to handle clogged drains quickly and efficiently.
- Low pressure. Low water pressure in your pipes means water coming out extremely slowly, if at all. It can stem from a leak in the pipes (likely from somewhere underground or in your walls, where the water can’t readily be seen). It could also stem from a blocked aerator, which filters the flow of water to keep waste to a minimum. A plumber can clear the aerator and/or repair the leak to restore pressure.
- Running toilet. A running or overflowing toilet can stem from any number of malfunctioning components, from a flapper to a fill valve. Regardless of the cause, it wastes water and can be very distracting to your household. A trained plumber can replace the faulty component with a new one.
