There are many reasons your faucets are leaking. The most common is a broken washer. A washer, usually located at the valve seat, may wear out because of friction. Sometimes, when it is not installed properly or you bought a washer with the wrong size, a leaky faucet can be a huge problem.
A malfunctioning O-ring is another thing that would make your faucet leaky. Typically located in the sink’s faucet, an O-ring is a disc responsible for holding the handle of a faucet. But like the washers, an O-ring can get loose or worn out.
A clogged drain is a common home plumbing issue particularly during the warmer months. While it may sound a simple problem, a blocked drain will not only affect the quality of your life but also pose a danger to your health when left unfixed.
To prevent a clogged piping system, it may be helpful to keep solid food out of your kitchen drains. You can put them in a compost heap or trash. For liquid grease, it is advisable to pour it into a sealable container.
For the hair, it is worth it to invest in and install a shower drain hair catcher. Also, you can replace your tub stopper or shower with a built-in screen.
Taking care of your home or office plumbing is critical to keeping the water clean in your piping system. Sad to say most people overlook their plumbing until a potential and costly problem takes place. Don’t wait for that to happen. Regular plumbing maintenance should be taken into account.
