When your plumbing system stops working properly, you suddenly become acutely aware of how much you depend on it. Some plumbing problems, like a slow drain or a dripping faucet, are to be expected as your house grows older. There are some of these problems that you can fix on your own without too much trouble. Some of these tasks may be dangerous and need expert assistance. Knowing the most common plumbing overflow issues and how to fix them will help you determine when you can handle the problem yourself and when you need to contact professionals.

Plumbing Overflow Issues

Clogged drains and toilets: Clogged drains may be identified by the backup of water during the draining process of a sink or shower. Sometimes the symptoms of a clogged toilet may be seen right away. When this happens, the water in the bowl rises to the top instead of flushing away. When you remove the obstruction, your drains or toilet should function normally again.

Leaky faucets and pipes: There are few things more annoying than a leaking faucet or pipe in a home. A leaky faucet should be taken care of immediately to avoid further water damage.

Water heater issues: Problems with a water heater are often straightforward to identify. You get in the shower expecting a lovely, hot soak, but instead, you receive a drenching from ice-cold water. Water dripping, puddles forming, water that has a strange hue, and sounds coming from the water heater itself are all indications that something is wrong.
