Bathroom Plumbing Tips
The following bathroom plumber's tips will help you keep fixtures problem free:
Home bathroom plumbing is not a DIY job. Have plumbers deal with your bathroom installation, repair and replacement.
Regular pouring of hot water down bathroom drains will keep them free-flowing.
Leaky bathroom faucets can waste several gallons to hundreds of gallons of water per day, and create permanent water spots and stains in the base of sinks. Repairing a dripping faucet can save up to 30 gallons of water per day.
From all bathroom accessories the strainer is your first line of defense against drain clogs. Place strainers over drain openings in tubs, showers and sinks to catch hair and soap scum. Make sure to clean all bathroom strainers on a regular basis.
Do not flush diapers, wet towels and sanitary products because they clog the DWV pipes and lead to slow draining bathroom sinks, showers and tubs as well as poor flushing, overflowing toilets and sewer backups.
Areas of missing grout around bathtubs or showers can allow water to seep into the walls and cause expensive damage. Avoid destructive water leaks by checking and refilling missing grout.
Provide appropriate ventilation after bathing or showering to reduce moisture levels and prevent mold growth.
Mold forming on the wall and floor in close proximity to the tub indicates a leaky bathtub. Call for prompt bathroom plumbing repair.
