It’s impossible to have a home without plumbing issues that arise from time to time. However, homeowners can take some basic measures to prevent potential costly plumbing repairs. The professional craftsmen at Handyman Connection of Edmonds have a bathroom plumbing maintenance checklist to help keep your home’s bathroom plumbing systems running smoothly.
- Check for leaking faucets or showers. A small leak in a faucet or shower could get worse over time. The amount of water that is leaking may seem insignificant, but can cause water damage which can be very costly to repair.
- Clear slow drains. Debris that collects in sink and tub drains will cause the water to drain slower and slower over time. It only takes a few minutes to clear the debris out of the drain and get it flowing again. This should be done every few months or when you notice a drain slowing down.
- Clean faucet aerators. Calcium builds up inside a faucet aerator over time and it can obstruct the flow of water. You may notice lower water pressure or an irregular spray in the faucet or shower as the calcium build up. To fix this problem just remove the aerators and clean them out on a regular basis.
- Fix running toilets. The working parts of a toilet can start to wear down over time and cause problems. Often this involves running water such as when the toilet handle sticks and it needs a little jiggle or you hear water running when the toilet is not flushed. A running toilet can waste an incredible amount of water.
