The plumbing systems of houses are often prone to several plumbing defects. Regular plumbing inspection can keep most of the problems away and avoid any plumbing havoc. But, there are times when you lack enough skills or knowledge, or sometimes the problem is too complicated. These are the times when you would want to call professional plumbers.

Low or High Water Pressure 
Low water pressure can occur because of a leak in some part of your plumbing system. It can also occur due to sediment or mineral deposits on the inner surfaces of the pipes. The deposits narrow down the path of water flow. Another common problem is high water pressure. High water pressure is a serious issue that can cause damage to the plumbing system and appliances. Water problems in the main municipal water supply can also result in either low or high water pressure.

Clogged Pipes and Drains
When you notice that water doesn’t flow through your sink, tub, toilet, sewer line, etc. or if it drains out slowly, understand that the drains and pipes are clogged. A complete or partial clog can occur by flushing unwanted materials in the drains. Allowing greasy materials, construction materials, inappropriate garbage, hair, etc. into the toilets, garbage disposals, and sinks block the drain passage. Clogs and blockages can lead to leaks or absolutely no water drainage.

Leakages
A leak or drip may occur because of a crack in the system or an incorrectly installed system. Damaged washer or valve inside the faucets and showerheads also result in leaks. Running toilets are another type of leakages in houses. Any type of leakage results in a large amount of water loss and high water bills. Avoiding or ignoring leaks can result in severe plumbing problems.

Sewage-Related Issues
Tree roots are the major cause of a clogged sewer line. Blockages in drains and pipes can result in clogging the sewer line as well. At times, the sewer lines work well but, the clogs develop in the septic tank. This can again happen because of flushing inappropriate garbage through the drains. Clogged septic line or tank can result in sewage backflow, unpleasant odor in the house, and sewage overflowing from toilets, sinks, tubs, and drains.

Damaged Fixtures 
Cracked or broken faucets, showerheads, and toilets become inefficient. They lead to leaks and high water usage bills. Also, damaged fixtures spoil the appearance of the house. The damage can occur because of regular use of hard water or rough external use. Hard water contains minerals that can corrode the metal fixtures. These corroded fixtures can affect the quality of water. Green, blue, brownish-red spots are the signs of corrosion and rust.
