1. Clogged Drains
Clogged drains are some of the most common draining problems. The toilets, tubs, and faucets get clogged every once in a while, but this is usually an easily solvable issue. In fact, a plunger and some muscle work are often more than enough.
2. Leaking Pipes
If you believe your drain pipes may be leaking, it’s best to contact the experts. There could be cracks caused by sulfuric acid or similar corrosive materials. To test the issue, you can go over the exposed parts and see if they leak or drip.
Pipe leaking is an incredibly delicate issue if you have cast iron drain pipes. Cast iron drain pipe repair is only a temporary solution to a problem that worsens with time. These pipes are long outdated and are likely to cause more issues in the future. That’s why you may want to consider replacing your system with more modern solutions.
