Over time, certain grime or gunk can build up, making sinks slow to drain. Before looking to replace any parts, start with a thorough cleaning. You clean the bathroom every week, but every once in a while it is important to put in a little more time and elbow grease. Using the example of the sink, remove the plug from the drain and look inside to see if something is blocking up the water.
If you can see it, reach into the drain and attempt to remove the objects. You can even try to use something like a crochet needle to catch hold of things to take out. Sometimes, a bathroom or kitchen just needs a little maintenance to keep things running smoothly. If you put everything back together and the problem isn’t solved, you may need more help diagnosing the problem. Call someone to come out and take a look at the toilet, sink or pipes to get a professional opinion.
Read the Directions
It seems like an over simplified suggestions, but many people run to the store, pick up a product that claims to help with plumbing issues and pour it into their sink, drain or toilet. You don’t want to create more damage, you just want to clear up any blockage and get the water moving again. Some products are made specifically for sink clogs and problems. Many times, the directions instruct consumers to avoid pouring the product down the drain.
Each portion of the plumbing in your home works differently as each serves a different purpose. When you look to fix a problem on your own with a product from the local grocery store, be sure to read everything. In addition to protecting your bathroom and kitchen, you also safeguard yourself against any adverse effects that can cause physical harm to yourself or someone else in the home.
Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late
Sometimes a plumbing problem starts out small, but it can progress quickly. As you get into a project and you find that things are getting better or it becomes too confusing or complicated, it is time to call the experts. Continuing to take sinks, drains, or garbage disposals apart can cause more serious damage and may not fix anything. If you see any indication that things are going to get worse, seek out professional help. Remember that it takes time to locate a plumbing company, set an appointment and have things looked at. You don’t want to be without the use of a sink or toilet for a long amount of time, so keep a time table in mind when you think about handing the situation over.
