Make sure your travel plans include time for plumbing prep. If you have summer travel planned, make sure your home is ready for it—especially if you're going to be away for a week or longer. We often overlook plumbing related items that could cause you problems when gone.
Is your bathtub or shower beginning to drain slower than normal? Chances are, there is a small blockage in the drain that needs to be taken care of immediately before it worsens. The consequences of leaving a clogged shower drain can lead to unpleasant odors, mildew and potentially even mold. Consider contacting a professional if you notice any of them.
We all have tried to take on task that is above our capabilities and sometimes it ends up costing us lots of money. There are some plumbing services that should always be handled by a professional. Below are a few plumbing situations that you should never attempt to do yourself, and they should always be fixed by a professional.
Sink leaks can occur at any plumbing joint. But the most common leaks happen at the sink rim, shutoff valves, supply line connections and slip joints in the waste lines.
Supply leaks under the kitchen sink or bath vanity can go unnoticed for a long time since they're usually at the back of the cabinet. Water can run down the pipes into the floor or subfloor, rotting the sink base, the floor and the framing.
