Leak Under Sink
When the pipe under your sink is dripping, you might just grab a bucket underneath and think you solved the problem. The truth is the problem just gets bigger as you ignore it. 
Pipes often crack due to change of temperature. Also, clogged drains can often cause pipes to back up and overflow. Or in some instance you might need to tighten the screw in the middle of the sink hole. There are different causes of leak under your sink. If you cannot find the root of the problem, call for help. Water can damage your cabinets and floors, leading rot and mold which may end you up paying more. That is why calling for immediate help is always a smart idea. 

Dripping Faucet
A leaking faucet needs immediate attention or it will add up on your water bill. If your faucet is dripping even the handles are shut off, then the washer installation might be the problem. You can have it replaced if failure occurs. Other possible causes are loose parts, or broken plumbing. If you have the right tools like c wrench and screw driver, you might fix it yourself but others wont like to mess and avoid dealing with bigger problems later. A plumber can easily identify root causes of leaky faucet and knows how to handle the problem professionally, so leave it to them.

Clogged Toilet
A household toilet needs to be reliable since this is the busiest utility in your home, and a good toilet should last more than ten years with less maintenance. We use toilet multiple times in a day, so having a blocked toilet is just a pain in the neck. The most common cause of clogged toilet is too much waste. It is important to avoid flushing down feminine pads, tampons, paper toilets, and wet wipes. If you have kids, watch them as they stay in the bathroom because they may flush down toys and other solid materials in your toilet bowl which can cause blocked toilet. 
For a clogged toilet, you can try the DIY solutions like using baking soda and vinegar. Another trick is pouring hot water into your toilet bowl. But if nothing else works, immediately call a reliable plumber to address the problem.
