Some Common Bathroom Plumbing Problems We Can Fix!

The bathroom (or bathrooms) of your home have the most amount of plumbing of any of the rooms. You only have to take a quick look over the bathroom to see its many water-using appliances and fixtures. Then think about all the fresh water pipes and drainpipes that you can’t see. All this plumbing means that the bathroom is the spot in the home that’s most likely to require repair work.

We’ll take a look at some of the more common plumbing woes you might run into the bathroom. You might be able to fix these on your own with simple tools like a plunger. But when in doubt, always call on a licensed professional plumber. Our plumbers are on call 24/7 to see that you get the help you need for bathroom plumbing repairs in Pomona, CA.

Clogged sink, shower, or toilet

Any drain clog is a problem. With a sink drain and shower drain, you’re likely dealing with a hair clog, possibly soap scum. Use a plunger to see if you can break through it. But these tough types of clogs, and often you’ll need help from a plumber. (And never use chemical drain cleaners!)

A toilet clog is often a more serious issue. If a plunger won’t clear it, the issue may be deeper down in the plumbing, and this definitely requires professional assistance.

A drop in water pressure

This may be a municipal plumbing problem. It could always be clogged aerators in the faucets, so check on those and clean them. If this doesn’t fix the issue, you may have a major leak somewhere, and this calls for professional leak detection services.

The toilet runs continuously

A running toilet will waste huge amounts of water in a short time. If flush a few more times doesn’t stop it, take off the lid of the tank and see if the chain is tangled or the float is broken. Don’t attempt to fix things in the tank if you don’t know what you’re doing. As we said before, when in doubt, bring in the experts.
