Within the walls of your home you can find love and laughter but very rarely do we think about what it takes to make a home run properly. That is because inside the walls and under the floors are intricately placed plumbing drain pipes and wires tucked away out of sight. Without these things there would be no running water or electricity. It is not until the unfortunate event of a drainage pipe busting or a toilet requiring repair that you are quickly reminded of just how dependent we are on our plumbing.

Leaky faucets might not seem like a big deal at first. But overtime, they can worsen and in some cases cause inflation of your utility bill. Additionally, leaking kitchen or bathroom faucets can cause unsightly stains in your sink from mineral build up. It is easy to repair a leaky faucet if detected soon enough. That is because within the faucet there is a rubber washer that can get worn out. A simple trip to your hardware store to buy a replacement washer would fix your leaking tap problem in a jiffy.
A clogged sink drain can be very bothersome. Like many plumbing issues they too can be avoided with proper sink plumbing precautions. In the case of all sink drains, it is best to have a drain strainer. This will block large particles of food, hair and debris from entering the sink and causing drainage clogs. You should check to see if your household sinks have strainers. If not, you can easily purchase one that fits your drain.
In addition to having a sink strainer, regular weekly and monthly cleaning of the drain is recommended. Removing the strainers or stoppers and cleaning out any build up once a week will keep your drains clog free and your plumbing running properly. Monthly maintenance to your garbage disposal is also recommended by using a simple mixture of ice and salt to break up any grease build up and ensure proper water flow. Also, pouring a biodegradable, non–corrosive drain cleanser solution once a month in all of your sink drains will also prevent drain clogs. Call your local sink experts at Harold’s for a suggestion of appropriate drain solution brands.
No one likes it when their toilet is clogged or does not flush properly. Regular inspection of your toilet tank and bowl can avoid and sometimes fix poorly flowing plumbing. At least once every 3 months you want to open up your toilet tank (the porcelain lid at the top) and take a look inside. There is a maximum and minimum amount of water that should be in the tank after the toilet has completed its flushing process. In order for a toilet to build up enough force, there must be sufficient amount of water in the tank. Check to confirm the water level is filled to the specified line inside of the tank. Then flush and observe to see if the float ball recedes fully with the water level and the flapper (round stopper at the bottom of the tank) remains in an open position for ample flushing. If your valve and tank water levels are optimal there is one more thing to check. But before you do, turn off the stop valve (located on the wall behind around the base behind the toilet) and flush your toilet. Depending if you have hard or soft water, overtime the rim holes under the toilet bowl rim can become clogged with minerals. One way to get rid of the buildup is to get a spray bottle of vinegar and spray generously on the mineral deposits. Wait about 30 minutes before scrubbing off with a standard toilet bowl cleaning brush. Turn the water back on and flush the toilet once more.
In the event you find you are having toilet plumbing problems and your toilet is not flushing adequately, check and make sure nothing is clogging the toilet trap way (U-bend) or outlet that leads to the drain pipe. To do so use a common house plunger or go to your local hardware store to purchase a drain “snake”. If the toilet water continues to overflow or not flush, call your friends at Harold’s plumbing for assistance.
Water leaks seem to happen when it is the most inconvenient. These untimely laundry leaks can cause water to flow on the floor unnoticed. Standing water in the house is a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. However, you can purchase a flood alarm that alerts you when there is a flood and they are relatively low cost solutions to prevent a potential disaster.
Just like the rest of your home, laundry drain lines are susceptible to clogs from hair and debris. Sometimes debris can flow in from the water pipe and clog up the inlet fill (where the hose meets the washer) to your washing machine. One sign of this problem is a slow fill rate. If you notice this while doing laundry, your washer’s fill screen might be clogged causing the reduced movement. To remedy this issue and avoid further complications, begin by turning off the water supply and disconnect the hoses to your washing machine. With needle nosed pliers remove the mesh screen at the entry of the inlet-valve. Once removed, clean out any fragments and place the screen back in its secure position. Inlet-valve screens can be replaced easily in the instance they are damaged. Another clog safeguard is installing a drain filter or strainer onto your washing machine’s drain hose. This will prevent laundry lint and hair from blocking your laundry drain pipe.
Have you ever had an odd odor coming from your laundry waste drain? That could very well be sewer gases seeping up and out into your laundry room. To prevent the stench and keep your drain waste free, simply grab a large container and fill with warm water then pour it down the drain. Do this once a month for a fresher smelling laundry room.
