Most of us have some basic plumbing fixtures in our home to deal with unforeseen and extraordinary problems in the bathroom plumbing. It often happens that minor damages occur that we may correct ourselves, such as a clogged toilet bowl that will come off with the special suction cup and work properly again. Such micro-repairs can be done easily if you can do some basic DIY repairing with your own tools.
However, for the most significant problems hidden in the bathroom plumbing, you will need professional help. A great way to avoid costly repairs is to have a regular plumbing maintenance schedule. The “key” to finding minor problems before they cause severe damages is an in-depth piping and drainage test.
1. Low water pressure
The problem of low water pressure may be related to the water supply to your area network. The accumulation of sediment can often cause it, so cleaning the taps can solve the problem. If not, then there may be a more complicated problem. If you can not determine the cause of the water pressure drop, call a plumber immediately.
2. Leakage in the piping
Leaks can be very costly and create other more severe problems in building materials. Although replacing a leaking pipe is not a complicated task, it can be very frustrating at home. So, you may want to make a deal to completely repair the damage to save time and money on cleaning, removing materials, etc.
Until the plumber takes over, you can temporarily turn off the water supply to reduce leakage and not cause further damage to your home. Today, with the help of the thermal camera, the exact point of the leak can be located without digging into all the surfaces and incurring unnecessary expenses.
3. Slow bath drainage
If the pipes are full of bristles, then the water is slow to leave the tub. Cleaning the sewer pipes can solve this problem. But even when the bathtub is drained correctly, it is imperative to regularly clean any residue left, as it can entirely clog the piping and create more significant problems in the future.
4. The tap is dripping
A leaking faucet can be very annoying if you do not know how to stop it. This will cost you the water bill. All sinks are equipped with rubber washers to hold the flow of water effectively. Some have durable ceramic rubbers for waterproofing. Due to physical wear and tear, they will need to be replaced at some point. If you can not do it yourself, it is better to call a plumber.
