The 10 most common plumbing problems:
- Dripping tap. Main cause is a faulty washer, which fails to close off the water.
- Blocked sink. A build-up of grime and debris within the trap is usually the problem.
- Water flowing from an overflow pipe. A result of water not closing off fully as it enters the WC or storage cistern located in the roof space.
- WC will not flush. The most common cause of this problem is the large diaphragm washer being worn out.
- Blocked toilet. The outlet usually becomes blocked due to excessive paper or inappropriate items being flushed.
- Banging/noisy pipework. This could be due to the pressure being too high or insufficient room for the pipes to expand.
- Water supply won’t turn off. Fittings sometimes don’t get used for a long time and seize up.
- Body of tap leaking water. Happens when the fitting is in use and is usually the part of the tap that allows the spindle or head to turn.
- Water coming from ceiling, pipe or appliance. There is a leak which needs attention. First turn off the main water supply and then attend to the problem.
- How water will not come on. Likely to be an electrical fault which will require the attention of a specialist contractor.
