Lake Zurich Clogged Toilet Repair

Besides leaky faucets, clogged toilets are one of the most common plumbing problems you'll experience as a homeowner. So, why does this happen so often? Let's look at the top reasons toilets clog and when to call a plumber for clogged toilet repair.

Hard Water
Many homeowners have hard water, which means the water coming into the home has high mineral content. While this water isn't dangerous to drink, the minerals leave behind deposits that can clog pipes over time. One effective way to deal with this is to install a household water softener.

Unflushable Objects
Another reason toilets frequently clog is that people flush objects that should go into the trash, such as feminine hygiene products, "flushable wipes," tissues, cotton balls, and paper towels. Unlike toilet paper, these materials don't dissolve and can get stuck in the drain.

Too Much Toilet Paper
Sometimes, you need to use a lot of toilet paper. However, instead of flushing a giant wad with waste at once, perform a courtesy flush, flushing the waste first and then the toilet paper to improve drainage.

If you have a toilet that's clogged and won't flush, try loosening the material with a plunger; if that fails, call a professional plumber for help.

Common Kitchen Plumbing Repairs

If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you'll likely experience a plumbing problem. Whether it's a clog, leak, or break, heavily-used kitchens are prone to pipe and drain issues, and here are the most common.

Low Water Pressure
Have you noticed the water pressure at the kitchen sink is lower than what it used to be? It could be a clogged aerator, or it could be mineral deposit buildup in your pipes. If the water pressure is low throughout the house, it may be a blockage in the main water line, so it's best to call a plumber to diagnose the problem.

We're all familiar with a faucet that drips no matter how much we adjust the handle. Many factors lead to leaky faucets, including wear and tear, worn washers, or corroded valve seats. Sometimes, replacing a worn part will solve the problem, while in extreme cases, you may need to spring for a new faucet.

Clogged Sink
Kitchen sink clogs frequently happen because we do much of our food preparation and wash up there. Food debris, cooking grease, and other organic material get into the drain and build over time, causing a blockage. The best way to prevent this is to use a mesh drain cover to prevent food waste from going down and put grease and cooking fat into the trash.

Leaking Dishwasher
If you depend on your dishwasher every day for after-meal cleanup, it may develop a leak. Common causes of dishwasher leaks are broken float switches and spray arms and ill-fitting gaskets.

When you have a major kitchen plumbing problem that prohibits you from getting chores done, call an experienced plumber as soon as possible.
