Since my house was built, I've already encountered several plumbing problems which I think is very common to every household. Dripping faucet, clogged toilet and sink and leaking pipes are among the most common problems that I have encountered, and I would say that this has been a very stressful experience. A dripping faucet for example can add up to your water bill if not addressed immediately. This simple problem can be resolved at once if we have a basic knowledge about the most common plumbing problems, their possible cause and the first hand solution. For a dripping faucet, for example, the most common cause is the worn out washer and this has to be replaced with a new one, as simple as that. I think it would be a lot better if we could get the size of the washer every time you install a new faucet, so it would be a lot easier to purchase the spare part that needs to be replaced. Clogged toilet and shower drains can be avoided by making sure that hair are removed from the drain occasionally to prevent the buildup which can cause the drains to clog. It would also be a wise move if we could make a handy plunger available at home as this could be the easiest solution to unclog the toilet. However, if the problem is quite complicated, we may need to call a local Rotorooter as they have the expertise required to solve the problem.
Understanding the basics about plumbing and getting first hand information from the experts on how to solve less complicated problems like a dripping faucet would save us a lot of time and money. Having handy man tools in the house would also be a necessity and stocking on some basic spare parts for plumbing would also be a wise move.
I remembered how a clogged pipe in our kitchen sink has caused me to panic as this sink is always where the action is. For this, we need to go out to the dirty kitchen to do all the washing and this really brings us discomfort especially if you are a busy home maker and time is essential. As I was rushing to have the problem done, I resorted to getting some unreliable plumbers who just aggravated the situation instead of finding a solution and this is an experience which I never wanted to happen again. Since then, I only rely on the experts for my plumbing needs who could provide a fast, reliable and guaranteed service for all my plumbing needs at home.
It pays to be be prepared and knowledgeable on the most common plumbing problems at home. After all, we are the ones who will benefit in the end.
