Common Plumbing Problems

Home / Common Plumbing Problems

If your Dracut, Massachusetts, home or business is experiencing any common plumbing problems, the knowledgeable New Era Plumbing & HVAC (formerly SDP Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling Inc.) team can find a solution. We stock our service trucks with the most innovative equipment and train our technicians with the most up-to-date techniques, which means when your Dracut plumbing system requires attention, we have what it takes to efficiently diagnose and repair the issue.


We’ve been providing professional plumbing services to Dracut homes and businesses for many years, and in that time, we’ve seen our fair share of plumbing problems. Some of the more common residential and commercial plumbing issues we’ve seen include:

  • Clogged toilets, drains, and pipes. The toilets, drains, and pipes serving Dracut area homes and businesses work hard, but sometimes, the substances constantly running through them can lead to buildup and clogs. Left unresolved, those clogs can cause drain backups, cracks, and structural damage within pipelines.
  • Low water pressure. A consistent drop in water pressure can be more than just a hassle for home and business owners. It can also indicate a leak, mineral buildup, a faulty pressure reducing valve, corrosion, or any other potential issues. Without immediate repair, the water pressure could continue to lessen, leaving homes and offices without adequate water supplies to meet their needs.
  • Leaky water heaters. Whether excessive water pressure, age, faulty valves, sediment buildup, or something else is causing leaks in your water heater, without repair or replacement, your residence or office could face volatile water temperature changes.
  • Deteriorating pipes. Aging pipes made out of lower quality materials can show many symptoms of deterioration, including but not limited to rusty colored water, slow drains, musty odors, and water and sewage backups. Left untreated, these issues could promote mold growth, reduce your air quality, and cause expensive water damage to your floors, drywall, cabinets, appliances, ceilings, and other interior fixtures.

If these or any other symptoms of plumbing problems are plaguing your Dracut residential or commercial property, New Era Plumbing & HVAC offer several effective repairs and replacement solutions. We can thoroughly inspect your drains, pipes, and fixtures to diagnose any issues before offering an affordable service to restore your plumbing system’s functionality. Regardless of the best service for your needs, our talented team will work diligently to bring structural integrity, maximum flow capacity, and durability to your plumbing.


In addition to responding to common plumbing problems, our team also provides high-quality heating and cooling services. If your air conditioner, heating system, air purifier, or some other HVAC element needs repair, replacement, or maintenance services, New Era Plumbing & HVAC have reliable team members with the experience and skill to help. From our dependable people to our professional work, we can keep your heating and cooling systems running effectively, comfortably, and reliably.

“I have used New Era multiple times and I am more than pleased with their work. This past winter our furnace was not heating up at all. With having a one year old it was critical to have our furnace working properly. They came out the same day and were able to repair the furnace. Thank you to the New Era team for working diligently and professionally. We always recommend them to our friends and family”.

“We are very pleased with the work New Era Plumbing did to get our very old A/C unit up and running today. Charley arrived on time and was incredibly thorough throughout the process. He explained things to me multiple times to make sure I understood the issues, and gave me many options for fixing the problem. We are crossing our fingers that we don’t need heating and cooling again soon, but when we do, we will call them back. Thanks for a great experience!”
