There is a wide variety of plumbing problems you can face that leave you dealing with both minor and major leaks. Leaks that can flood your home with water can be quite dangerous. However, the most annoying issue you can face is having no water from your taps at all.
If you’re facing the same problem, the chances are that you might not need to call an Apopka, FL, plumber to fix it. Depending on what’s wrong, you can clear up the issue yourself. For everything that requires expertise and tools, you can call in Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. to handle the situation.
Why There’s No Water Coming from Your Tap
There are various reasons why the water might not be coming out of the tap. Let’s take a look at them and see which ones you can deal with yourself.
Stuck Ball Valve
If you’ve checked other taps in your house and they are not working, check in with your neighbors to see if they’re facing the same problem. If they are not facing the same problem, it could be a stuck ball valve causing the problem. If your ball valve on your main water inlet is stuck, then you aren’t going to get any water into your home, period.
Air-Lock in Plumbing
Another issue you can face that leads to a lack of water from your tap is an airlock in your plumbing. When this happens, the taps upstairs usually don’t work. It can also occur by gradually reducing the water pressure until it’s just a trickle. The simplest way to resolve an airlock is to attach a hosepipe to the tap, fit the other end to a working tap and turn both taps on. It can force the air bubble out and restore your water supply.
If the water supply has gradually reduced to the point where it is completely blocked in the tap, it could be a clogging issue. It happens with older water fixtures that see plenty of sediment buildup over time. Ideally, it would help if you replace the fixture with a new one. If you don’t want to replace it, you will need an expert to come in and clean the fixture thoroughly.
Corroded or Clogged Pipes
It’s no secret to Apopka, FL, residents how bad the hard water problem can become. Besides being detrimental to your health, hard water can also damage your plumbing over time. If the water supply in your taps has gradually decreased to the point that it barely trickles out, you have a clogged or corroded pipe. It is not a problem you should try to deal with yourself.
Sometimes, the problem can occur due to the materials becoming old. If you cannot figure out what the problem is, you should call us. We will send over skilled technicians who can determine the source of the problem. If it is happening because the water lines are extremely old or incorrectly sized, it can cause low water pressure.
