Leakage- The water and drainage pipes are made up of different types of materials such as plastic, iron, steel, copper etc. With the passage of time and constant use, these may get crackled at some points. As a result, water starts leaking out at that point and spreads to the area of the wall behind which the pipe is located. It is noteworthy that most of the plumbing systems are located behind the walls or under the ground. So it becomes all the more necessary to get the leaking pipes repaired.
Blockage- Another plumbing problem is that of the nature of blockage due to which water supply gets halted to some specific area of the house such as sink, bathroom or toilet. There may be any reason behind this blockage such as deposition of dust particles, sands, small pebbles, corrosion etc. inside the pipes. As a result, pipes get blocked and water is not supplied through that point.
Running Toilet- Another common problem related to plumbing is that of the running toilet. It means that water keeps on flowing through your toilet upon pulling the chain or pressing the flush button. There may some loose rubber or such other screw inside the flush tank which is not able to retain water in the tank and it keeps on flowing. This problem can be sorted by a plumbers London only.

There may be a blockage in the sink pipes of the kitchen due to collection of food scraps or bathroom due to collection of hair or soap in the pipes. As a result, water keeps on standing in the sink for a long time due to slow drainage. It produces foul smell.
