- Fixing clogged drains. Bathroom drains are one of the most commonly clogged water outlets in your home. This is due to accumulated falling hair, solidified soapsuds getting caught in between the parts. Try to run plumbing snake to clean the pipes. If this does not work you need to inspect the internal pipes.
- Fixing leaking pipes. The first thing you need to do is to turn off the water source, once you have identified where the leaking pipe and the leaking portion is. Get yourself some plumber’s tape, steel clamp or replacement pipe section to repair the leaking area. Usually, a waterproof sealant or several wraps of plumber’s tape fix the leak temporary.
- Checking toilet functions. Do an inspection of your toilet’s flushing mechanism by being keen whenever you flush the toilet. Observe the water inflow and outflow. You can even remove the cover of your water tank to see if all is well with your toilet valve.
