Here are some common bathroom plumbing problems that you may encounter in your home:

  • Leaky shower pan: Depending on what type of shower you have (tile, corner kit, sliding glass doors, etc.), a leaky shower pan usually indicates trouble. The problem with it is that water has penetrated to an area that can lead to significant water damage to your sub-floor, framing, possibly even the downstairs ceiling. But the way water travels can often seem mysterious, so a professional hands-on diagnosis will have to determine the root cause of the leak, and recommend a viable solution.
  • Funky trap: The "trap" is that U-shaped (or P-shaped) bend below your bathroom sink drain. You may be wondering why the bend is there, why the drain doesn't just go straight down. The reason is to create a water seal that prevents foul sewer odors from wafting into your living space. A little bit of your wastewater sits in that bend at all times, unless of course, your trap is leaking, clogged, or won't hold a water seal for some reason.
  • Running toilet: If your toilet constantly runs, it can be irritating not to mention costly. Even small leaks like these can increase your water bills on a daily basis. A plumber will be able to find the cause of your running toilet and take the necessary steps to repair it.

These are just a few problems that you may encounter with your Raleigh plumbing. Call JD Service Now whenever you need a trustworthy plumber who does the job right the first time.
