Common Plumbing Issues & How To Fix Them

Fountain Hills area homeowners know plumbing problems come in many shapes and sizes. You can have something like a clogged faucet aerator or a sewer line break. Whatever your plumbing needs, one choice that can make all the difference is having a dedicated and dependable company you can count on to be there.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a new or seasoned homeowner, at some point you’ll encounter these common plumbing issues. And, maybe you’re thinking you’d like to try DIY before making the call to Shadrach. If so, we offer these helpful hints.

Leaking Pipes Are a Common Plumbing Issue for Homeowners

Sometimes, fittings get loose and just need a little tightening with a wrench. Other times, because many homes in Arizona are built with copper slab piping that are directly in soil full of sharp rocks, leaks can occur in areas that require the expertise of a professional plumber in Fountain Hills. Call Shadrach and we’ll have your pipes fixed in no time.

Water Heater Breakdowns

Our water is hard, and that’s hard on water heaters. When water is described as hard, it has an abundance of minerals that can cause corrosion in water heaters or supply pipes or even cause a layer of sediment inside the storage tank making them malfunction. When this occurs, the best course of action to ensure proper repair or replacement, call Shadrach Plumbing & Cooling. We’re ready to help 24/7 emergency service.

Water Pressure Problems

When you turn on the faucet, you don’t expect just a trickle or sputtering. If the water isn’t flowing like you want, the aerator could be clogged. Simply unscrew it and rinse it. If it appears to be really gunked up, soak it in white vinegar before rinsing and screwing back on. Shower heads that aren’t letting the proper flow of water through, can be soaked by filling a plastic bag with vinegar and attaching it to the fixture so that all the openings are covered in vinegar. 

If these solutions don’t improve the water pressure, there could be a more severe underlying issue. Shadrach Plumbing & Cooling can help with that!

Toilet Issues

Toilets have many moving internal parts to make them function correctly. If it’s flushing unexpectedly or water trickles into the bowl, the issue could be with the flapper, which is the rubber piece at the bottom of the tank. Drain the tank, clean the flapper seat and flapper, and replace it if you’re still unsure. Water leaking from the supply line may sound like a hissing sound. Adjusting the float may solve the issue or it could be with the refill tube.
