Prevent Plumbing Problems
Some plumbing issues are inevitable and happen over time, while others are preventable when you know exactly what to do. The Cincinnati plumbers of Thomas & Galbraith are always here to help when you face a plumbing repair situation, but we also want to help you avoid plumbing issues as much as possible.
Below, find key tips from a skilled plumber to help you avoid some of the most common plumbing issues Cincinnati homeowners face:
Avoid Clogged Drains:
- Chemical drain cleaners may be able to fix a clog, but they can cause irreparable damage to your drains. Avoid using these products if possible.
- Avoid pouring oil and grease down your drains.
- Grease, bones, animal fats and skins shouldn’t go down your drain. Your garbage disposal isn’t designed to handle these items.
- Be careful what you flush down your toilet. The drains aren’t meant for heavy duty products like paper towels and sanitary napkins.
Water Heater Care:
- Tank water heaters should be flushed annually, but only if you’re in the habit of regularly doing so. If you’re not comfortable doing this task yourself, don’t hesitate to call us for water heater maintenance services.
- Keep your water heater’s thermostat set at or below 120 degrees to prevent hot water burns and save energy.
Simple Tricks from Our Plumbing Experts
Many people pick up the phone and call for plumbing service when something isn’t working right. If you follow our guide below, you may find that the problem is something you can easily fix yourself.
Below, our plumbers explain some simple DIY tricks to try when you first notice plumbing problems. If you are uncomfortable with checking any of these things then you should call for service and let one of our expert plumbing technicians perform service for you.
Fixing annoying leaks
If a leak is obvious, you may attempt to repair it with fiberglass repair tape or plumber’s putty. This should be done as a temporary fix to stop water damage until a plumber applies to perform a permanent solution. If the leak is behind a wall, under the floor, or in the attic, call a plumber.
Clearing out clogged pipes
Try pouring hot / boiling water into your toilet from waist height. The heat from the water may help dissolve the clog.
Pour a quart of dawn soap down a clogged drain. The soap surrounds the clog and lubricates it so that next time you run water the clog should flow out.
Plunging isn’t just for toilets – plunging can also be used to dislodge clogs in sinks and shower or tub drains.
Whatever you do, do not use chemical drain cleaners. The chemicals can cause damage to your pipes, requiring pipe replacement beyond drain cleaning services. It’s best to call a plumber for professional drain cleaning and clog removal if the methods above do not work.
Fixing low water pressure from your faucet
Mineral deposits can build up in your faucet causing low water pressure. Fill a sandwich bag with vinegar and wrap it around the faucet so that the faucet soaks in the vinegar. Leaving it overnight should give it enough time to dissolve the minerals, freeing up the faucet to provide normal water pressure.
Remove aerators from faucets and leave the part to soak overnight in a cup of vinegar. Use an old toothbrush or cleaning brush to remove deposits.
Stopping your toilet from constantly running
Try jiggling the handle first. If this does not work, check out the inside of the tank. The lift chain may be wrapped around the lift arm and just need to be straightened out. The float may be just above the water. Bend the arm downward to ensure it makes the water shut off. The flapper at the bottom of the tank might not be making a good seal around the drain hole, so clear away debris to get a tight seal.
Frequently Asked Questions
The most common plumbing issues a homeowner will face are: leaking or dripping faucets, constantly running toilet, a clogged drain or toilet, jammed garbage disposal, and a sewer system backup.
