Plumbing problems at home can cause a panic, especially if it occurs with the toilet, shower or some other appliance of vital importance. However, you don't need to call a plumber for every little problem as many issues can be taken care of yourself.

Whether you're trying to unclog a toilet or can't figure out why there's standing water in your bathtub, here are some common household problems and how to fix them:

Thankfully, there are a few simple tricks you can use to get the running water to stop. First, you need to try to jiggle the handle to see if the problem resolves itself. Jiggling the handle can free the float ball or flapper, which is often the underlying cause of the issue. You can also open the back lid of the toilet and lift the float ball above the water level, which should also cure the problem. However, in many cases the flapper needs to be repaired. You can get a toilet tank flapper at any hardware store for around $10, and this should cure your toilet plumbing problem without the need for a professional.

As you can see, there are several common household plumbing issues that you probably will deal with here and there. Instead of calling a plumber to fix a simple clogged drain or toilet, taking a few minutes to complete some troubleshooting should clear things right up. But if you do need to call someone for help, Mr Rooter - plumber is a dependable company for these situations.

A good roof will usually last 20 - 30 years. They only last that long if proper maintenance is done on a regular basis. The roof is an easy thing to neglect and far too often that is the case. If you can't remember the last time you inspected your roof then you should consider having someone take a look. It is possible to put off a full replacement if things have not gone too far.

If you find that the roof does indeed need to be replaced, then find a reputable roofing company. You do not want to pay thousands in repair bills only to discover new leaks a couple years later.
