New Houses Can Have Plumbing Problems, Too

Although older houses are more likely to have a wide range of problems, it doesn’t mean that new houses are exempted from plumbing problems.

Look Out for The Following Plumbing Problems in Your New House

  • Leaky Faucets

Most people tend to associate leaky faucets with older homes, but this problem can happen even in a new house. While a leaky faucet may seem like a minor plumbing problem at first glance, it can prove to be costly in the long run when you consider the amount of water that goes to waste.

Some of the common causes of a leaky faucet include a malfunctioning O-ring, worn-out cartridge, corroded valve seat, worn-out washers, high water pressure, and loose parts.

A leaky faucet could raise your water bills by up to 10%, so it's best to call an experienced plumber to help you fix leaky faucets before the problem becomes a plumbing disaster.

  • Running Toilets

Running toilets can occur in any house, regardless of how new the house is. A toilet that keeps running is usually caused by a malfunctioning flapper, incorrect positioning of the refill tube in the overflow tube, and incorrect height of the float.

Like leaky faucets, running toilets can waste many gallons of water per day and cost you a lot of money if you don’t resolve the problem quickly.

Fixing a running toilet is a job that should be left to knowledgeable and experienced plumbers who understand the anatomy of a toilet.

If you’re dealing with a running toilet in your new house or any other toilet problem, get in touch with Mr. Rooter Plumbing for a reliable and long-lasting solution.

  • Water Heater Issues

Even if you have a new water heater in your new house, there is no guarantee it will work perfectly. Your water heater may not be able to meet your household’s hot water needs, perhaps because you installed the wrong sized water heater or bad installation.

  • Clogged Pipes

It may seem too early to deal with clogged pipes in a new house, but it can happen especially if you’re not careful about what you put down your drains. You may also experience frequent clogs in your new house if your drain lines are poorly installed.

Various substances that can cause clogged pipes include hair, food waste, soap, dirt, oil, grease, fat, wipes diapers, objects accidentally flushed, feminine products, cotton swabs, and more.

Clogged pipes can make it difficult to carry out daily household tasks such as washing dishes, showering, and bathing. Besides, clogs in your pipes can lead to backflow and create unsanitary conditions in your house.

If your kitchen sinks, toilets and bathtub are slow to empty, or there are gurgling noises coming from your drains, you’ll know your drain lines are clogged. It’s best to call a dependable plumber to help you with drain cleaning when you’re dealing with clogged pipes.

As you can see, plumbing problems are not unique to older homes. Even new houses can have serious plumbing issues that must be resolved quickly to prevent plumbing emergencies.

If you’re in need of plumbing repair service to restore your plumbing system to its good working order, you can rely on Mr. Rooter Plumbing to help you fix all of your plumbing problems efficiently.
