Avoid Plumbing Problems in the Powder Room this Summer
Posted on June 5th, 2014
The summer months can be brutally hot–especially in Arizona! This summer is no exception. While you’re sweating it out in the hot hot heat, the last thing you want to deal with is an unexpected plumbing issue in your bathroom. There are certain steps to make sure this doesn’t happen to you.
- If you notice any kind of discoloration near the plumbing fixtures, it is best to give Plumbing Medic a call. Pink discoloration indicates a high concentration of iron in your water. We can easily fix this problem by having a water softener installed by one of the professional plumbers at Plumbing Medic!
- An inefficient shower head can really ruin a nice hot shower. Luckily, shower heads are inexpensive and can be purchased at your local hardware store.
- You may need a new flapper. Not from the 1920s, but a flapper for your toilet. An ineffective flapper will keep the water flowing constantly, which will end up draining your bank account. In most cases, replacing the flapper altogether is the best option.
- Avoid using any kind of chemical drain cleaner. Although you might have the best intention of “cleaning” your drain, drain cleaners are filled with harmful chemicals that actually erode and wear away at your pipes.
Should you experience any sort of plumbing blunder, Plumbing Medic will be here for you. We understand that plumbing emergencies happen around the clock. We are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our service will help you get back to enjoying your summer in no time!
