looking for some plumbing advice
Do you feel that your home's plumbing is in good condition? For the most part, it doesn't take
years of training. Rather, it requires you to know some basic information. If honing your plumbing
skills is your goal, this article can help you. The tips laid out here contain advice about making
your plumbing more efficient. #keep##flickr#
While various toilet tablets and odor removers may be tempting, it's best not to use them in your
toilet. The rubber parts of your system can be damaged by the chemicals contained in these
tablets and stop functioning.
To deal with a frozen pipe, turn on the faucet closest to the pipe. This gives the water a place to
exit as the pipe defrosts. As such, bursting can be halted, saving you from even more costly
Check the floor for soft areas around the toilet to determine floor damage. An easy way to test for
floor softness is by straddling the toilet and shifting your weight. If the floor feels soft when you do
this, you have floor damage. It's important to catch and address floor damage problems as soon
as possible. The longer you wait, the more expensive the repair will be.
Do not pay your plumber until they finish the job. You may have to put money down before they
start working, but avoid paying the total amount until it's done. It is good to know that the plumber
did everything as promised before he gets his money.
Keep the drains in your bathtub working properly by pouring a cup's worth of baking soda and
than a cup's worth of vinegar directly down your drain every month. Afterward, place a washcloth
or towel over the top of the drain, to keep the chemical reactions contained. Wait for a little while,
and then pour boiling water down the drain. This method should clear your pipes of accumulated
hair and soap scum.
If you have a clogged toiled with a lower water lever, and the plunger isn't working, try pouring in
some warm water directly into the toilet. Repeat this as many times as necessary until your clog is
gone, and you can flush normally once again.
Check the overflow holes for clogs. Sinks use overflow holes if they start to overfill, and this isn't
usually a problem, but it can be. Clean overflow holes as part of your annual maintenance, and
any other time you are handling general plumbing repairs.
The key towards maintaining low plumbing repair bills is prevention. Clogs are the most
commonly reported problems when it comes to plumbing issues. Hair is one of the most common
clog-producing materials. You can stop this by using a screen or drain cover that is designed to
keep hair out of your drain and pipes. Taking the hair off of the screen and disposing of it is
cheaper and easier than removing it from the pipes.
It is important to check the background of any plumbers you are looking at hiring, and get referrals
if possible. Some of the plumbers out there can not do every job, and they may end up causing
you more problems than you started with. Ask around, and check online reviews. Your relatives
and friends will likely know a plumber they will recommend.
