6 Signs For Bathroom Repair

Slow Drainage

Every homeowner has to cope with a slow draining sink or tub while using boiling water. A pipe snake or particular cleansers can usually solve this, but they are not always efficient. If your pipe snake is not adequate to clear the drainage, you may have a broken pipe or water accumulating in your main drain. Still, water can be dangerous to your health because it can have mold growth behind the floor and wall.

Knocking Pipes 

You have a plumbing problem if you hear your pipes knocking in the shower or running the sink. Knocking pipes may have several causes like loose valves in the pipe system, high water pressure, or sloppy support strap. The last two are particularly harmful because they can cause the pipes to jerk and shift out of place. If you don’t correct it, you will soon have a leak or a bent pipe.

Low Water Pressure

You expect a consistent stream of water when you turn on the tap or turn on the shower at full blast. However, there is a problem if you get a slow plunge or no water at all. To begin, double-check that the faucet or showerhead isn’t just clogged. If unclogging doesn’t work, call Hydro Plumbing Services since the problem could be a broken water heater or a leaking pipe.

Constantly Dripping

There is a problem if your sink or shower is constantly dripping. Your pipes’ water pressure may be too high or inadequate water drainage. It could also signify that the on/off switch on your faucets or showerheads are broken.  It has the potential to inflict lifelong damage while this may appear to be a minor issue,

Water Discoloration

The water should be clear when it comes out of the pipes. If you see a different hue coming out of the faucet, it’s time to get it fixed right away. If your water pipes are white or foggy, there may be air in them. 

Rust can be brown, red, or yellow. Corrosion has caused the copper pipework to turn green or blue.

Water Won’t Stay Hot

Every hot water tank has a limited capacity. If you use it up too quickly, you will have to wait even longer for the water to warm up. On the other hand, if you switch on your shower for the first time in a day and the water soon becomes cold, you have a problem and it usually indicates a leaking shower.

Why should you renovate your bathroom?

Motivations for embarking on any full bathroom renovation vary from wanting to improve the look of your bathroom and fix urgent problems such as leaking pipes, cracked wall tiles, or other structural issues. Many homeowners embark on a complete bathroom renovation hoping that it would lift the sales price of their house.

Whatever the case may be, it’s a good idea to begin planning with a clear vision of what you want to accomplish. First, make a rough outline of where all of the existing bathroom plumbing, fixtures, and plumbing services in the bathroom need to be repaired. The following are some questions to consider:

  • What is the present condition of the bathroom?
  • What items need to be updated or repaired?
  • Who uses the bathroom, and what do they require (for example, a separate bath and walk-in shower, which is best for older people and young families, compared to a combined bath-over-shower unit, which may save space)?
  • Is the layout functional? Is the existing floor plan efficient use of space, or can it be improved?

Then it’s time to start thinking about your new bathroom’s design while keeping your budget in mind.
