Common Plumbing Problems in Oklahoma City | Airco Service

Posted on: May 23, 2017

Plumbing issues are something that affects all homeowners at some point or another. Whether it’s a constant drip in the kitchen or a shower that just doesn’t drain, plumbing problems are difficult to forecast and often come out of nowhere. Should you experience any kind of a plumbing issue though, it is important that you contact the professionals at Airco Service Inc. Even plumbing problems that seem minor require expert precision and care to fix. Failure to fix these problems in a timely fashion may result in extensive damage and repairs.

Here are some of the more common plumbing problems you may experience in Oklahoma:

Dripping Faucet

A dripping faucet may not seem like much of an issue. Surprisingly, even a minor dripping faucet can lead to major issues and expensive water bills. If you let the drain continue dripping for weeks, you’ll waste hundreds of gallons of water. The money you spend on increased water bills can easily be used to fix the problem. Additionally, the dripping may not all end up down the drain. Often times, a drip is a sign for other problems within the sink’s plumbing, which means there is an internal leak. The smallest leak can cause the largest problems, including a water damaged floor and mold growth. So when you notice a dripping faucet, make sure to have it fixed as soon as possible.

Clogged Drain

If you have a clogged drain, you may feel inclined to head out to the store and pick up a drain cleaner. This is a quick fix, but it will not fix the problem in the long run. Additionally, the chemicals found in drain cleaners are extremely harsh on your home’s plumbing. If you are in an older Oklahoma City home, you may have metal pipes. Drain cleaner eats away not only the clog but the pipes also, leaking the material. With multiple applications, the chemicals may create a hole in the plumbing. At the very least, these chemicals will end up in the local water supply, which should be avoided.
