Using The Right Plumbing Products

After years of doing what I could to make my home a cleaner, more functional place, I realized that there might be an issue that I was causing unintentionally. I realized that there were some serious issues with my plumbing products, largely because I wasn't focusing so much on using the proper varieties of plumbing cleaners. I began working harder to do what I could to identify the right types of products, and I found some organic varieties that worked better with my septic system and drain network. Find out how different plumbing issues could be resolved by identifying common problems with your cleaning products.

Three Reasons You Should Have A Plumber Fix Your Bathroom Plumbing

When you run into problems with your bathroom, you may think that all you need is a plunger to get the water flowing again. However, not all problems can be fixed with a plunger. You may need to contact a plumber in the following situations that are related to your bathroom.

Your Toilet Constantly Backs Up

One problem that needs more help than a plunger is a toilet that constantly backs up, or has water that is very slowly moving down the drain. You likely have some sort of clog that needs some professional help removing, which is much deeper in the pipe than you think.

There could be a blockage deep within your main sewer line, which will require a sewer camera to see what is happening. A snake can be used to clear a clog, or you may need a special tool to get something out of the drain, such a toy that a child flushed. 

Your Ceiling Has Water Marks

Have you noticed water marks in the ceiling directly below your bathroom? This means that water is somehow getting away from the toilet and into your ceiling. A plumber will likely need to create a hole in your ceiling to get to the pipe and make the necessary repairs. It could be a pipe that is broken and needs to be replaced, which is a repair that is difficult to do on your own. 

If not a damaged pipe, it may be a toilet that is simply leaking water and making its way into the ceiling in the room below. A plumber can figure out why the toilet is leaking and stop it from happening.

Your Faucets Won't Stop Dripping

Faucets that continue to drip after you turn them off can be quite annoying. Not only does it waste water, but it is an indication that something is wrong with your faucets that can become a bigger problem. A plumber can disassemble any faucet that you have in your bathroom and inspect the gaskets inside that prevent water from flowing through. It is likely that you need to have these gaskets replaced with brand new ones to form a solid seal with your faucets.

These are just a few reasons to reach out to a bathroom plumber for repairs. If you are experiencing a plumbing problem that you don't know how to fix on your own, don't hesitate to get professional help.
