Toilet: Toilets make up a part of your bathroom and not only do they serve the function of the urinal but also the toilet. Common problems with toilets are clogged toilets.

 

A clogged toilet occurs when solid waste such as feces collects in the water that fills the toilet bowl, preventing any additional wastewater from entering or flowing out. This can be caused by people using harsh chemicals to remove stains from their clothing or by flushing large objects down the toilet.

 

Sink: The sink is a fixture in most bathrooms and kitchens and it is used for a variety of purposes. It can be used for washing hands, dishes, and other items. Sometimes sinks get clogged with food particles or other debris that should not be in the sink. It is important to remove any excess food particles from the sink as soon as possible because you do not want those chemicals to rot or rust and end up clogging up your clean water supply lines.

 

Sewer: Sewers are devices that allow a free flow of waste away from a building and out into a public sewer system. It usually runs off of gravity and is a very efficient way of transporting waste by using the law of gravity to do the work for you. Sewers, like sinks and toilets, can become clogged when substances such as grease or food particles get in them and they can also be clogged when roots from trees enter the sewer lines causing damage to them.

 

Water Heater: A water heater is a device used for heating water and supplying it to the faucets in your home or building. There are three common problems with water heaters; they will not light, only produce warm water, or stop working altogether. The first problem can be fixed by lighting the pilot light and the second issue can be repaired by draining and flushing out the water heater. The last problem is a major issue and you should call a professional plumber in Phoenix, AZ immediately.

 

Root: A root is part of a plant that is underground and it allows plants to draw moisture and nutrients from the soil. As roots grow they travel through small cracks in the sewer lines and that can cause severe damage to them. If you have a root in your sewer line you may have to find the location of it by digging up the ground around the drain opening. Once the root is found it has to be removed using any number of tools designed for this purpose such as chemicals, cable cutters, or high-pressure water sprays.
