Plumbing Advise For Your Home Or Business

  1. Usually when confronted with a dripping or leaky tap, a person’s initial response is try and fix it themselves .
  2. Stop for a moment and just think about it, unfortunately, this rarely works.
  3. In many cases this causes a lot more harm than good.
  4. Applying too much force can cause it to sheer off, snap or burst completely.
  5. If your taps are indeed dripping or leaking it is recommended, that you seek out assistance from a professional plumber instead of going down the ‘DIY’ route. Or like some people that put there head in the sand.
  6. A leaking pipe left unchecked can cause untold damage.  The best advise here is if you see a small leak. Get it fixed or looked at by a professional plumber. This will save you more money in the end.

Shower Head Racks Be Careful

  1. Shower heads do not respond well to having excess pressure applied to them.
  2. That is why the use of shower head racks is not widely recommended.
  3. Their weight puts excessive force on the shower head and can overtime, cause it to begin to separate from the wall.
  4. These have been know to fall down and crack the bath tub. This can cause so much hassle and huge costs. This can result in leaks occurring.

Stop Your Shower’s Drains From Clogging

The purpose of a shower  trap is to remove and dispose of dirt. 

  1. Over time this can result in hair, dirt, soap and grease resulting in blockages in your shower’s drain. People tend to shed hair while showering and can then accumulate into clumps.
  2. Which will stop water from passing through the drain.
  3. It is fairly easy to tell when your drain is beginning to block.
  4. You will see a slow drain of water from the shower tray or bath.
  5. A common and simple cheap way of preventing your shower’s drain from becoming blocked.
  6. Is to install a filter on top of your shower’s draining hole.
  7. You can purchase one of these in just about any hardware store and they are fairly cheap to buy.
  8. Be very careful when using any form of chemical unblocker.
  9. Take into account the fact that they are expensive.
  10. As well as environmental factors (they are extremely bad for the environment),  they do not come across as being a particularly sound investment.

Sinks Are Not For Waste Disposal

  1. Much like the toilets, sinks are also commonly mistaken for bins.
  2. The most common reason behind a blocked sink piping is leftover foodstuffs from cooking grease.
  3. Another big one also is when trades are working painters, plasters and tilers.
  4. Cleaning out there brushes and tubs when they are finishing works.
  5. The grease and plaster can become as hard as cement.
  6. Sometimes you would have to remove the pipework completely to get rid of the blockage.
  7. Liquids should only ever be poured down the drain of a sink.
  8. Solid items should be appropriately disposed of by putting them in a bin or, if appropriate, use a compost pile.
