Inspecting Your Plumbing: A Quick Guide

Plumbing issues can be fairly unpredictable since they’re parts of the home that we don’t check on all the time. Unfortunately, if you’re caught off-guard by a plumbing problem, the results can be catastrophic for both your home and finances. This is where regular inspections come in.

Here, Handyman Connection® of West Omaha gives you a quick guide you can follow when inspecting your plumbing.

Check The Faucets

When it comes to bathroom maintenance, the sink, tub and shower faucets require the most attention from you so make sure to regularly check them for leaks. If there are any bad washers or cartridges that are causing your faucet to drip, replace them immediately. To spot hidden water pipe damage, on the other hand, watch the operation of your faucet when you run water; if the water pressure is weak or the spray pattern is irregular, there might be an issue that requires the services of a professional to repair.

Inspect the Drains

Most homeowners only pay attention to their drains when they start clogging, which can be a headache to deal with. However, if you want to avoid this, don’t wait for them to be completely clogged. Instead, have a plumber disassemble your drain traps periodically to remove any form of debris that can cause blockages.

Check Your Toilets

A toilet has many parts and eventually, they can break down and cause issues for your home. With that in mind, inspect your toilet by removing the tank lid and check what happens when you flush it. If it continues to run water instead of shutting off, you can call a professional to determine the cause and repair it. On the other hand, if you notice the toilet rocking slightly when you sit on it or see water seeping around the base, then it means you need to replace the wax ring that seals the toilet to the base.
