Common Rental Property Plumbing Issues

Do you ever have an issue with your plumbing? If you own a rental property, then this is something you may have to deal with more than you think. A leaky toilet, clogged drains, or running sink are just a few of the issues that plague most rentals from month to month. This is where Mr. Rooter Plumbing comes in. Our plumbing service provides tenants with quality service for their issues quickly and efficiently.

Leaking or Dripping Water

You should check for possible leaks when your water bill increases without explanation. The first step is to check all the obvious places, such as toilets, faucets, and shower heads. If there are no signs of leakage in these areas, check other places like under sinks, near washing machines, and dishwashers. To check for leakage in these areas, turn off the water supply valves so you don’t have to deal with a mess when you find the leak.

Running Toilets

This can be very annoying and costly if you have a running toilet. A running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water daily, which could significantly increase your monthly water bill. To fix this problem, it’s best to call an experienced plumber who can determine if the problem is related to the flapper or fill valve. If it’s just a matter of replacing the flapper, then it should be an easy fix, but if it’s more than that, then they will know what needs replacing or repairing so they can get rid of that annoying sound that keeps coming from your toilet bowl at night when everyone is trying to sleep!

Clogged Drains

Clogged drains can be a problem in many rental properties because tenants are only sometimes careful about what they place in the sink or toilet. In addition, clogs can occur when tenants use too much soap or excessive hair in the pipes. If you have a tenant who has clogged their drain, it’s important to resolve the issue quickly because these problems can lead to backups that could flood your home or office building. A quick phone call to Mr. Rooter Plumbing will fix any problem with your drains so that you aren’t left without water or a working kitchen sink!

Water Pressure Issues

If your tenants have low water pressure in their showers, toilets, or sinks, there’s a good chance that there’s something wrong with your water main or plumbing lines. You might also experience low pressure if you have new tenants who use more water than others did before them or if there’s too much demand on your local water supply at peak times of the day or during hot weather when everyone is using their sprinklers and hoses at once. You may need to replace old pipes or install new ones if the problem persists long-term.

Mr. Rooter Plumbing for Plumbing Issue Assistance

Some of these issues are easy to fix. However, contact a dedicated plumber for repairs if you are experiencing water heater issues or extremely low water pressure. The best way to get your rental property into shape for its next tenant is to fix the plumbing issues.
