Drain Issues are a Common Problem and Ignored Until a Problem Develops.

Plumbing disasters are quite common when we forget to maintain our house regularly. When you suspect any leaks, don’t shrug it off. Once you spot a leak repair it at once or else it could damage your home. A lot of water is wasted due to toilet leaks which are a common issue. Toilet leaks are mainly due to worn-out parts or clogs. Hose connected to washing machines weaken and become brittle over time. These worn-out parts then start leaking.

Weather changes cause strain on the plumbing and heating systems and are prone to bursts and breakdowns. Turning off the water supply during winter will prevent freezing of water left in pipes or else could cause pipes to burst. Also, disconnect your garden hose from the tap.

Tank water heaters are the most common choice among homeowners. Tank water heaters keep water hot at all times. This means it uses much more energy in order to keep the water at the optimal temperature. Tankless water heater only heats the water when needed. This assures you that you have enough hot water for your needs and it takes up less space compared with a traditional heater.

Drain issues are a common problem and are ignored until a problem develops. Usually, clogged drains are resolved by using plungers or drain cleaners. However, recurring clogs might need serious repairs.  A persistent clogged drain is a sign that something more significant is going on within your drain or sewer lines. It could be due to debris that’s deeper within the pipe, pipe narrowing caused by pipe scale along drain line walls, tree roots, or even structural damage. Cleaning the drain regularly prevents clogs from forming in your pipes over time. Grease and other food items down the drain can lead to a build-up that slows down and eventually completely blocks the flow of water in your pipes. Be sure of what is flushed down the toilet drain. Only human waste and tissue paper should be flushed down the toilet.

Temptations of using a drain cleaner to fix the problem are quite natural. Drain cleaners are notorious for causing damage to your pipes and even your septic system. This is due to the number of harsh, harmful chemicals they include. Many of these substances can corrode your pipe’s interior, which can lead to even more costly problems.

Rust and sediment build up inside the water heater. This accumulation reaches a point when the water heater does not function properly. The sediment layers along the sides and around the burner consist of rust and minerals such as calcium and magnesium. As these layers thicken on and around the burner, the unit becomes unable to heat the water properly.

Banging or gurgling sounds come from the water heater when it is nearing its end of life. At this stage, it is not uncommon to see rust-colour or brown water coming out of your hot-water faucet or to see water around the hot water heater. The most obvious signs of water heater failure, however, are a reduction in the temperature of your hot water and running out of hot water sooner.
