Your bathroom plumbing should be in great condition all the time. If it's not, you can have some serious issues come up that can be costly to repair, like an overflowing toilet, a slow drain in the tub, or other plumbing issues.
Here are some signs your bathroom needs to have a professional plumber give it an inspection. The right plumbing specialist will be able to identify what's wrong with your bathroom and make repairs before they destroy the foundation your bathroom rests in.
Your toilet isn't flushing
Does your toilet have issues flushing? Or, does your toilet start to gain water whenever you run your faucet or you turn your shower or tub on? Your toilet may have a clog in its pipe that goes beyond the P-trap. If using a plumbing snake — there are two kinds, one for the shower and one for the toilet — doesn't get your toilet to unclog on its own or doesn't pull up enough of the blockage to allow for proper flushing, then you need to call a plumber to repair the problem.
Your faucets have low water pressure
Do you have low water pressure when you turn on your shower or try to use your bathroom sink? If the water pressure issue is limited to your bathroom, then your bathroom plumbing may need attention. Your plumber can attend to your low-pressure issue, which can be caused by anything from low water pressure in the lines to sediment in the pipes or even pinched or damaged plumbing, and can make repairs as needed so you have the water flow you desire.
Your drains are slow-moving
There are lots of reasons why a tub or bathroom sink drain would move slowly. Hair can get clogged in a sink, particularly a tub drain, and other debris, such as tidbits of bar soap and other things, can also make a drain get clogged. You shouldn't use harsh chemicals in a drain because fumes can get in the air and the drains can become damaged from the chemicals you use, so call a bathroom plumbing specialist to make repairs for you.
Your bathroom plumbing contractor will charge by the hour and may have a flat service charge fee for the work they do. You can call your bathroom plumbing specialist during normal working hours, or if you have an emergency, pay additional fees for an after-hours service call. Contact a plumbing service, such as Best Care Home Services, for more details.
