Tips for Making Bathroom Plumbing Issues Few & Far Between

Let’s face it: bathroom plumbing issues are an absolute pain. When the sewage backs up through your drain or there is a leak coming from your shower or toilet, you have to drop everything immediately to arrange for a repair, otherwise things are sure to just get worse. If you want to lessen the frequency of incidents like these occurring, you can take several preventative steps. Find out what they are beforehand and stop worrying about experiencing bathroom plumbing issues all the time.

Don’t Use Chemical Drain Cleaners

Having a clogged drain is incredibly frustrating and we know you likely want to have it fixed as quickly as possible. Therefore, you are likely to run out to the nearest grocery or convenient store to buy a chemical drain cleaner. We would urge you not to do so. These cleaners contain toxic chemicals that will wear down the lining of your pipes. For a quick fix, try using a plunger. If the clog is still an issue, call your plumber to take care of the problem.

Don't Put Too Much Pressure on Your Fixtures

While it may be helpful to hang a shower organizer from your showerhead, we would strongly urge you not to do so. Putting too much pressure on your fixtures is likely going to lead to leaks which otherwise could have been completely avoided.

Take Preventative Action

There are many ways you can prevent your drains from becoming clogged with hair. However, if you are not too excited about the idea of just shaving all of your hair off, you can take preventative action in the form of a drain cover. The drain cover will catch the hair before it is able to go down the drain, preventing clogs.
