Common Plumbing Problems

As an owner of a home or commercial property in Colorado Springs or Denver, a plumbing problem probably tops your list of things you don’t want to deal with. At Affordable Plumbing, Heat & Electrical, we understand – and we’re here to make life easier with our straightforward service.

Common Plumbing Problems

Here are four of the most common jobs we tackle, as well as what you can expect if you are experiencing these issues.

  1. Clogged Drain or Toilet

    Generally, clogged drains and toilets are the result of people not being careful about what they allow to enter their plumbing system. For example, most clogged sinks in the kitchen occur because people pour cooking grease down the drain, or assume they can treat their garbage disposal like a trash can. Bathroom fixtures like tubs and sinks get clogged due to a combination of hair, soap scum and flakes of dead skin, while we often see toilet clogs because people flush things such as kitty litter, feminine hygiene products and cleaning wipes down the toilet.

    Do not try to unclog a slow drain with commercial drain cleaners, as the harsh chemicals inside these products can further damage pipes by causing corrosion. Also, these cleaners are not usually successful in breaking up the entire clog. Call the professional plumbing technicians at Affordable Plumbing, Heat & Electrical instead – we have the specialized equipment required to break up any clog, no matter how severe.

  2. Dripping Faucet

    While the constant drip-drip-drip of a faucet can be irritating, it’s much more than a minor annoyance. It wastes both money and water to leave a faucet drip unaddressed, whether the cause is mineral deposits, corrosion or worn-out parts such as gaskets, washers or O-rings. Even a small, supposedly minor leak can waste three to five gallons daily. It’s best for your water bills and the environment to get it fixed as soon as possible.

  3. No Hot Water

    Stepping into what you thought was a hot shower, only to feel cold water raining down on you, is a rude awakening in more ways than one. Not only did it start your morning off on the wrong foot, but it’s a sure sign your water heater needs attention from the pros at Affordable Plumbing. We can diagnose your problem and tell you if you need a repair or replacement.

  4. Low Water Pressure

    Low water pressure at your home or business is a legitimate concern. There are many root causes of low water pressure – from simple problems like the shutoff valve being closed can cause low water pressure to more severe issues like plumbing blockages or water leaks. When the water pressure drops, your best bet is to call for professional service.
