The 10 Most Common Plumbing Issues
(General Plumbing Repairs)

  1. Dripping tap

    A leaky faucet can be frustrating and annoying. And, if left untreated, a leaky tap can waste a lot of water. Attending to faulty taps is one of the general plumbing repairs and maintenance in Gauteng offered by Geyser Man Plumbing.

    If the tap is leaking at the joint of the body, near the handle or spout, it could result from a loose or damaged spout O ring. However, one of the most common causes for a dripping tap is a worn-out washer.

    The valve seat of your tap may corrode and become slightly worn over time. As a result, it won’t create a secure seal, causing a leak.

    If you have persistent issues with a leaky tap, Geyser Man Plumbing can assist.

    Slow draining sink

    A slow-draining sink can be frustrating, and more importantly, pose a health risk. Mould and mildew grow in warm, damp, and dark spaces, and if the water stays in your sink long enough, these tiny spores can take hold and grow in the drain, possibly contributing to any blockages and causing unpleasant smells.

    Often, a slow-draining sink is the result of a clog in the pipe. Other causes could include rogue tree roots, P-trap problems, stuck objects, and old plumbing.

    Clogged toilet

    A clogged toilet is an annoying but easily fixable issue. Causes include hard water (when the water in your home has a high mineral content), foreign objects (baby wipes, cotton balls, etc.), worn pipes, or simply using too much toilet paper.

    Running toilet

    If your toilet doesn’t stop running after the normal flush cycle, there are a few simple fixes Geyser Man Plumbing can help you with. The most common problems are the float height, a leaking flapper, or a refill tube that is too long.

    Low water pressure

    When you open the tap and water just weakly dribbles out, it can seriously ruin your day. Low water pressure turns everything into a long, frustrating task – from doing laundry to having a shower.

    Causes for low water pressure include too many plumbing fixtures in use at once, faulty fixtures, closed valves, clogged pipes, or corroded plumbing.

    Leaky pipes

    Leaky pipes could cause sky-high water bills, so if you suspect this problem, call Geyser Man Plumbing ASAP. We’ll be able to find out what the cause is and fix it fast. Possible reasons for leaky pipes include broken water seals, high water pressure, pipe corrosion, broken pipe joints, clogged water lines, sneaky tree roots, and rapid changes in water temperature
