A bathroom serves many purposes. It’s the place where you get ready in the morning, with a brisk shower. And it’s also the place where you might want to indulge in a long soak after a hectic day at work. So it’s important to keep your bathroom in good working condition.
Common Bathroom Plumbing Glitches
Unfortunately, life catches up with bathrooms, as with everything else. And although your bathroom might have been in a good condition to begin with, it might look a little run-down after a few years.
- Rust: Maybe your fixtures have gotten rusted.
- Low Water Pressure: If there are many minerals in your water supply, then these might have clogged your fixtures, thus leading to low water pressure.
- Tiles: Because a bathroom is always a little damp, you may have some mold which can eventually affect the grouting and cause the tiles to fall out.
- Fixtures: Mold and grouting issues may even cause your wall soap dish and other wall fixtures to become loose or fall off altogether.
These are minor plumbing issues which can all be solved with the help of a skilled plumber.
Getting Minor Issues Resolved Immediately
Remember that it’s best to solve each problem as and when it arises rather than letting it deteriorate further. For example, if one tile is falling off because the grouting is affected, then it’s best to replace it immediately or more and more tiles are likely to fall off.
You might be able to deal with low water pressure for a while because, well, at least you have water coming out of your bathroom fixtures. But it would be so much more convenient if you had high water pressure, wouldn’t it?
And rusted bathroom fixtures can actually be a health hazard for you and your family. If you take medication by drinking water from a rusted bathroom tap, you might be ingesting water that’s bad for you.
