People get so much stress due to their plumbing system that is not working excellently. There are different types of plumbing problems, but some of them are too easy to get rid of. It will be convenient for the owner to stop or lessen the issues from occurring if you know the types of things that usually go wrong.

Most Common Types of Plumbing Issues, Causes, and Solutions 

  • Clogged toilet 

Causes: It is because of human waste, tissue papers, wet wipes, hair, etc. 

Solution: Use a plunger, sewer snake, or drain auger to loosen up the blockage.

  • Dripping faucets

Causes: In most cases, it is an internal washer that has become stiff, torn, worn, or dislodged over time.

Solution: Usually resolved by the average householder, but it requires the correct tools.

  • Slow draining sink 

Causes:  It is because of the blockage that is restricting the water flow.

Solution: Use a plunger, pouring down baking soda and vinegar or a chemical clog remover, or use a plumber’s snake. Those are the things that can help you clear out the clogged sink.

(Note: Don’t apply this method often. It can cause damage to your drainage pipes)

  • Leaky pipes 

Causes: It occurs mostly in the winter season when water can freeze, expand, and cause pipes to explode.

Solution: Tape, compounds, and fillers can often provide a temporary solution.

(Note: For a permanent solution, replace a piece of pipe.)

  • Low water pressure 


  • Leaking pipes, worn or corroded over time.
  • A build-up of sediment and mineral deposits on aerators.

Solution: Soak the aerator or showerhead in vinegar to clean it up, or fully replace it.
