Residential Plumbing Tips
While most plumbing problems are best left to the professionals, you can do a few things on your own. The following tips from Reichelt Plumbing should help you get the most out of your plumbing system:
- In early springtime, check all faucets and fixtures for leaks. Inspect your toilet tank and bowl for cracks, and exercise the water supply valves under the sink to prevent them from catching.
- During the summer, check around the toilet base for any water damage. Then, turn on the water in the tub and the kitchen sink. If this causes a noticeable reduction in water volume, you may need to replace the piping.
- During the winter, you’ll want to turn up the water heater just a tad to conserve hot water (do not exceed 125 degrees).
If, despite your care, you find yourself facing a serious plumbing problem, don’t hesitate to give Reichelt Plumbing a call. We’re always here to help.

Residential Plumbing Frequently Asked Questions
What’s included in a Residential Plumbing Inspection? And why do I need one?
It is always a good idea to schedule an annual residential plumbing inspection. Most companies offer this service at an affordable price to their customers. Several things are included in a residential plumbing inspection. A licensed plumber will check the following:
- Check drainage pipes in both kitchen and bathrooms for cracks or leaks
- Look for signs of dripping water around joints and connections
- Ensure all supply line valves turn on and off smoothly without leaking
- Inspect around appliances such as the refrigerator and dishwasher for cracks or leaks
- Thoroughly check around each toilet for damage or moisture
- Check walls for stains, bloating, or cracking that would indicate a leak
- Check your crawl space, basement, or other storage areas for indications of plumbing trouble
You need a residential plumbing inspection, as it is essential for preventing small plumbing issues from becoming large, costly ones. A licensed plumber can also provide you with tips for saving water on your monthly bill.
What would cause a water leak from the vent in the residential plumbing system?
Water in a plumbing system prevents sewer odors from being released into the home. However, sometimes air gets pushed in front of the line and is then released through a plumbing vent. When a vent is damaged, clogged, or not installed correctly, the vent can leak water. Diagnosing a vent problem can be extremely complicated. It is important that you call a licensed plumber if you suspect that you may have a vent leak.
What has caused a blocked drain on my residential property?
A blocked drain is one of the most common residential plumbing issues. If you notice that your pipes are draining way too slowly, or aren’t draining at all, you probably have a blocked drain. A blocked drain can be caused by…
- Dead leaves
- Tree roots
- Foreign object placed down the drain
- Hygiene products
- Food waste
- Human waste
If you suspect that you may have a blocked drain, you need to call an experienced plumber with the right tools to release the blockage. Failure to fix a blocked drain can result in wastewater backing up into your home.
Is there any difference between residential and commercial plumbing?
While both residential and commercial plumbing has many of the same challenges, they differ in many ways. In residential plumbing, there is typically a small group of people that are using the plumbing system. In a commercial setting, hundreds, if not thousands, of people may be depending on the plumbing system to work properly. There are different grades of plumbing materials that are used in commercial systems, which can mean an entirely different plumbing architecture. That is why it is important you call a licensed plumber with extensive experience in both commercial and residential plumbing if you have a plumbing issue.
