5 Common Plumbing Problems and How We Fix Them


Plumbing issues can come in many different shapes and sizes, but one thing is for sure: the experienced professional plumbers at Schuler Service has seen and resolved it all! Read on to learn more about some of the most common plumbing issues we face each and everyday and exactly how we go about fixing them!

Dripping Faucets

Among the most common of all plumbing issues in the home, dripping faucets are not just a source of irritation, but the water waste they are responsible for can end up costing you hundreds, if not thousands , of dollars on your water bill! In fact, a single dripping faucet can waste hundreds of gallons of water over just one year.

Dripping faucets are usually caused by an internal washer that has become stiff, worn, or dislodged over time. If this is in fact the problem, then the fix is really quite simple! The professional plumbers at Schuler Service can disassemble the faucet, replace the necessary parts, and reassemble the faucet in no time at all!

Slow Draining or Clogged Tub or Sink

Slow draining tubs or sinks can be a serious annoyance. Typically, this issue is caused by a partial blockage deep inside the drain or pipe. Over time, drain pipes can collect a gross amount of hair and debris over time.

To resolve this problem, it’s always a smart idea to consult a professional plumber with the necessary tools and equipment to snake your drain and resolve this issue. Attempting to do this on your own with plungers or makeshift tools can actually make your problem worse, if not damage your pipes altogether.

Clogged Toilet

A clogged toilet can be one of the most panic-inducing plumbing problems that many can experience, but it doesn’t have to be as long as you bring in a professional plumber from Schuler Service in Allentown, PA!

Typically, a toilet blockage can be caused by excessive use of toilet paper or foreign objects becoming stuck in the toilet pipes. Sometimes, a toilet clog is too severe for a household plunger, and in this case, the experienced plumbers at Schuler Service can employ the use of a sewer snake or drain auger to successfully solve this problem.

Jammed Garbage Disposal

Garbage disposals are extremely useful household appliances, but that doesn’t mean they are indestructible. Overuse, running them without water, or attempting to dispose of certain incompatible items via your garbage disposal can all eventually cause big problems.

The plumbing pros at Schuler Service can diagnose and address this issue immediately, entering your disposal’s inner workings even if you’ve misplaced your disposal key. In no time at all, we can free your motor and have your garbage disposal back up and running in no time.

Faulty Water Heater

No one likes to be forced to take an ice cold shower, and issues with your water heater can even cause difficulty when it comes to washing dishes or doing laundry. There are multiple issues that can lead to a faulty water heater, including a build-up of sediment, a malfunctioning thermostat, or an extinguishing of your pilot light.

If you experience a lack of hot water at any time, don’t hesitate to contact Schuler Service as soon as possible. A professional plumber will inspect, maintain, and repair your water heater as needed.
