Avoid Plumbing problems

#1. Leaky toilet:

Toilet repairs are one of the most common plumbing problems. Leaks are a common result. Also, one leaky toilet can waste around 75,000 gallons of water a year, enough to fill a backyard swimming pool.

How to solve leaky toilet problems?

If you feel that a leak is going on, test out your theory by pouring a bit of food coloring into the toilet’s tank and waiting overnight. If the dye shows up in the bowl the next morning, you have got a leak. Also, it is time to replace the flush valve, an easy job that requires only a few dollars’ investments and a little of your time.

#2. Clogging shower, tub or bathroom sink drain.

Bathroom drains can get easily clogged with hair and soap residue, which is not only a plumbing problem. Before you find yourself with a flooding back up, clear the way with a wet/dry vacuum, a handy trick of the trade that definitely beats time-consuming extraction with an auger.

 

#3.  Use inexpensive drain screens:

Use inexpensive drain screens (made of either plastic or metal) in the kitchen sink, the bathtub, and the shower to prevent food particles, hair, or small items like jewelry and toothpaste caps from creating a clogged drain.

You can also buy inexpensive plastic drain screens that can be placed over bathroom sink drains, right over the built-in stoppers. These screens will catch and hold hair, soap slivers, and other potential drain cloggers and make it easy for you to lift out the obstructions.

#4. Keep an emergency repair kit handy:

Simple issues like a toilet backing up can become a huge problem when you do not have the right tools to hand. Put an emergency repair kit in an easy to access area.

This kit should include:

  • A plunger
  • Heavy-duty gloves
  • An adjustable wrench
  • And other plumbing tools

Simple issues you can solve by yourself. So you do not need to call the costly plumber. You can save your money and time too.
