4 Common Residential Plumbing Repairs

Dripping Faucets

Dripping faucets are irritating, wasteful, and costly. Sometimes, these drips can be caused by a worn-out washer or O ring, which can easily be replaced. In other cases, corrosion or even improper faucet installation can be the problem causing the drip.

Running Toilets

Did you know that a running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons per day? That’s a lot of water waste! In most cases, the issues that cause running toilets include:

⦁ Refill tube problems
⦁ Worn out flapper seals or flush valves
⦁ Improperly sized flapper chains
⦁ Corroded toilet handles

Leaking Hose Bibb

A leaking hose bibb is very common in the spring and summer. After a long, cold winter, many hose bibbs that aren’t protected can crack and begin to leak. We advise our customers to invest in a frost-proof hose bibb, which can reduce the chances of having future leaks.

Sump Pump Failure

Sump pump failures can be linked to a problem with the unit or an external issue. Usually, the causes of sump pump failures include:

⦁ Stuck switches
⦁ An overwhelming amount of water, like after heavy rain
⦁ Clogged discharge pipes
⦁ Improper sump pump installation
⦁ Aging, with sump pumps around 10 years old being prone to failure

General Residential Plumbing Services FAQ

What counts as a plumbing emergency?

Few things count as a plumbing emergency, including the risk of flooding due to a sump pump, burst pipe, sewer backup, a water shut-off valve failure, or if you have no access to running water. However, if you are still unsure about what constitutes a “plumbing emergency,” call the Five Star Dayton Plumbing appointment line to speak with a live representative.

What should I do when my toilet keeps running?

First, check if there is too much water in your toilet’s tank. Next, check to see if the flapper is leaking or needs replacing. The rubber seal holds water in the tank and releases water when the toilet handle is pulled and blocks off the flush valve to keep water in the tank. Lastly, verify if you need a shorter refill tube. This tube reports how much water should be attributed to the overflow tube in your toilet bowl. If these matters do not seem to be the problem, it is best to have a certified plumber’s guidance and help, like the expertise of the Five Star Dayton Plumbing, with all of your plumbing issues.

Does homeowners insurance cover plumbing services?

Unfortunately, homeowners insurance does not cover any initial plumbing services such as routine maintenance, repairs, or installation. However, if accidental damage is caused by a hidden leak you were unaware of or a sudden burst from frozen pipes. Then, in that case, depending on your homeowner’s insurance policy and coverage, they can help cover a portion of the repair costs.
