With plumbing, there are a variety of reasons why a San Diego plumber may be called. However, a few plumbing problems are more common than others. Here are a few things that tend to go wrong more often than other problems with plumbing in San Diego:
Low Water Pressure
Over time, calcium deposits build up in the aerator, causing low water pressure. This is usually the case if the water pressure is affected whether you are using either hot or cold water. If only the hot water is affected, the cause may be related to the hot water heater.
Hair and other debris building up can cause the drains in sinks and tubs to drain slowly. Cleaning the trap out regularly will keep your drains running smooth. Over time, if not attended to, the drain can become completely clogged. Also, the further down the buildup travels in the drain, the harder it is to unclog.
Garbage Disposal Problems
More often than not, the culprit of jammed garbage disposals lie in improper use. Contrary to popular belief, not everything can go in a garbage disposal, especially forks and paper products. Many people end up with clogged or jammed garbage disposals due to this common occurrence. The best pieces of advice in regards to garbage disposals are to cut larger pieces down to smaller ones, run it regularly, and clean it often by putting a few drops of dish liquid down the disposal.
