Common Plumbing Problems and Solutions

If you are a home or business owner, you know that repairs are a part of property ownership. Unfortunately, repairs are almost never convenient and are almost always costly. It is safe to say that plumbing disasters are some of the most severe situations for property owners. Water, flooding, and additional damage can happen quickly with even a small plumbing issue.


At Elk Grove Village Sewer and Plumbing, we have seen our fair share of distressed homeowners dealing with plumbing crises. Here is a list of the most common plumbing problems we have seen throughout our experience serving property owners throughout Chicagoland.


Low Water Pressure

We receive calls from customers who are frustrated by the low water pressure throughout the faucets in their homes. While low water pressure is not a crisis situation, it is certainly an annoying one. Decreased water pressure can be caused by a number of issues, including a leak somewhere in the property’s plumbing pipes. A professional plumber can determine if there is a leak, or if you need a more simple change – a new shower head.


Leaking Pipes

One of the most common phone calls we receive is from customers who have water leaking in their home. Sometimes, the homeowner can determine where the water is coming from while other times leave a homeowner stumped on where the source of the leak is. We are able to come to the property and determine the size and source of the leak, as well as how to fix it.


Clogged Toilets or Drains

Homeowners can become frustrated when their toilet is flushing a bit more sluggish than usual, and if the situation goes unresolved, sewer back up is imminent (and a mess). Debris in the sewer pipes, including rogue tree roots, can cause serious damage to plumbing pipes throughout the property. Our team of experienced professionals can determine the source of the issue and fix it immediately, preventing long-term damage.


If you have a plumbing issue, whether an emergency or a simple annoyance, give our team a call. We are here to help quickly, and without busting your budget. Keep our contact information handy to assure you know who to call when a problem arises.
