Generally speaking, most homes have the highest concentration of plumbing fixtures in two areas. These are the kitchen, and the bathroom. We’re not trying to say that one is more important than the other, but we would go so far as to say that the inconvenience of not having a working toilet in the house may be a bit more substantial than not being able to use the kitchen sink for a day or two. Neither is great, of course.
This is exactly why it’s so important that you’re aware of some common signs of trouble with bathroom plumbing systems. There is no way that you’re going to avoid all issues with your bathroom plumbing over the years. Nobody’s luck is that good. However, catching problems with your bathroom plumbing in Corona, CA, early on is definitely going to be your best bet for keeping the repercussions of those problems minimal. Let us know if you have any bathroom plumbing worries!
Take That Running Toilet Seriously!
Okay, so there’s water in the tank, and the toilet is flushing. That means everything is just fine, right? Even if the toilet is also running constantly? No, it most certainly does not! If you are serious about keeping your plumbing system operational on all fronts, you need to stop fooling yourself into thinking that any problem is minor enough to ignore! What’s the concern with a running toilet?
Well, there are a few of them, but consider this—it’s costing you money! That water isn’t going to any use. It’s just running and draining, running and draining. And you’re paying for it all. Don’t pour your money down the drain, almost literally. Instead, take the issue seriously. Check to see if the flapper at the bottom of the tank is damaged or misaligned. Ensure that all bolts are tightly fastened at the base. Can’t find an obvious cause of the running toilet? Then call in our pros.
Don’t Write Off Leaks as Anything Else
The bathroom is a tricky area to diagnose small leaks sometimes. Why? Because if there is a little bit of water on the bathroom floor, there are a hundred different reasons why it may have wound up there, right? Maybe someone didn’t towel off enough when getting out of the tub. Maybe someone turned the water on too high when washing their hands. Maybe it’s just some condensation that pooled after dripping off the toilet.
Sure, those all could be the case. However, you may also have a leak on your hands. If that water keeps reappearing, it’s time to stop writing it off and investigate matters. There is obviously a lot of potential for leaks in the bathroom. We’ll find the source and correct it appropriately.
Leave the Drain Clogs to Our Plumbers
If there is one plumbing service that really seems to draw in the DIY enthusiasts, it’s the drain clog. We’ll make this short and sweet. Those chemical drain cleaners you can purchase at the hardware store? They have their uses, but they are also caustic chemicals that will rarely do a very thorough job of clearing out a clog.
Our plumbers have the tools, like scour jetting equipment, that they need to effectively clear drains and to keep them clear. Let us know if your tub or sinks are clogged, and we’ll clear them out for lasting results.
