  1. Clogged Sinks – a problem occurs when you’re washing the dishes in your kitchen and the sink refuses to drain.
  2. Clogged Toilets – if it makes strange noises, leaking, or refusing to flush, your toilet is clogged.
  3. Clogged Bathtubs and Shower Drains – bathtubs and shower drains become clogged if the water starts to rise on your ankles, or a strange gurgling sound comes from the drain.
  4. Leaky Faucets and Toilets – the constant drip can empty your pockets dry due to high water bill expenses.
  5. Leaky Water Heater – a leak on your water heater can cause property damage.
  6. Leaky Washing Machine Hoses – if you knew a cracked or bulging hose behind the washer, mind it before it causes more serious problems.
  7. Broken Water Lines – broken water lines cause soggy areas in the yard and poor water quality.
  8. Burst Pipes – the freeze-thaw cycle can cause exposed pipes to burst.
  9. No Hot Water – no hot water in your bathroom could be a result of water heater malfunction or plumbing leak.
