 Multiple problems in rental house
Author: RobertLawhorne (WV)

Hi. My fiancé lives in a rental home and has multiple plumbing problems. The house has a kitchen with a sprayer, no dishwasher and one full bath. First, all drains are slow to drain, which I'm sure indicates the need for snaking the drain lines. Next, when flowing, the bathtub faucet discharges black grit and sediment. She has had very low water pressure only on the hot side of the kitchen faucet and the bathroom sink and tub also have low pressure, but not as low as the kitchen. The PVC drain under the bathroom sink leaks at the connection just before the trap. Tightening it doesn't help. Finally today she checked the shutoff valves under the kitchen sink. Initially the hot water pressure improved but then flow stopped completely. Then using the cold water also stopped flowing completely as well. Turning the shut offs do not change the problem. Help!

Since it's a rental about all that you can do is notify the landlord. The health dept can get involved if the conditions are real bad.

Her rental, is not your issue. The rental unit is the responsibility of the owner or management. That is why you pay Rent.

Any repairs or attempt to repair, means you are now liable for damages, determined by the owner of the property or management.

Your mate, must notify management in writing to establish a valid issue and then wait.

I love and support Judge Judy's comments too

Best Wishes
