What is a Plumbing Fixture, and What are The Most Common Problems?

The term plumbing fixture is used to describe any device that is connected to your home’s plumbing system. This includes the device itself, in addition to any valves and accessories that might be attached. For example, when assessing the condition of a sink, the basin, valves, faucet, and taps are all included in the assessment, as they are all fixtures that interact with your plumbing.

Depending on where the trouble is located, there are a number of reasons why your plumbing fixtures may not be operating properly.

Common Kitchen Fixture Problems

Fixtures in a kitchen are generally the kitchen sink and any relevant accessories and valves, as well as the dishwasher, if present. Problems usually show up in the form of clogs, leaks, and foul odors, and are generally caused by the following:

  • Faulty installation or leveling
  • Broken o-rings, gaskets, seals
  • Worn out faucet cartridge
  • Buildup of mineral deposits
  • Layers of rust
  • Blocked filter

Common Bathroom Fixture Problems

Bathroom fixtures include the sink, toilet, and shower or bathtub, along with any relevant accessories and valves. Loss of water pressure, leaks, sewage smells, clogs, and failures to run or stop running are relatively common. These sorts of problems are usually due to the following:

  • Buildup of mineral deposits
  • Broken o-rings, gaskets, seals
  • Worn out faucet cartridge
  • Dry shower trap
  • Clogged strainer
  • Flapper valve or toilet ring

Common Laundry Room Fixture Problems

Most laundry rooms have one main plumbing fixture, the washing machine. Washing machines are often out of mind to a degree, but they too can cause trouble under certain circumstances. Complications involving washing machines include unusual movement and noise, slow draining or no draining at all, and a failure to fill. These can be caused by the following:

  • Improper install / leveling
  • Disconnected shock absorbers
  • Debris trapped in the drum
  • Hose obstructions or kinks
  • Blocked filter

Common Household Fixture Problems

Finally, there are numerous other shutoff valves located around the house that could pose an issue. If your valves are unresponsive or experiencing leaks, this should be addressed immediately. The role of these fixtures is to regulate the flow of water throughout the building, allowing you to shut the water off to areas of the house when they’re in need of maintenance or repairs. Issues with shutoff valves are usually caused by:

  • Loose packing nuts and fittings
  • Corrosion on the stem or cap of the valve
  • Outdated saddle valves, also referred to as T-handled valves
