Drains, Sewers, All Your Plumbing Needs.
Blocked sink: If you are using a plunger, trying to unblock a sink, cover up the overflow holes with a damp cloth. This helps build up pressure.
Blocked tap: Make sure you turn the water off at the source before attempting to clear a blocked tap.
Leaky toilets: If you think your toilet might be leaking slightly, check to see if the problem is due to condensation before calling a plumber. If you have condensation problems they can be solved by improved ventilation when bathing or showering.
Showers: If the water pressure is very poor in your shower it may be due to limescale build up. If you live in a hard water area you should clean your shower heads every three months or so.
Frozen pipes: I find that the best way to melt the ice in frozen pipes is to put hot water bottles over them or use a hair dryer.
Leaky faucets: Repair leaky faucets promptly to avoid further damage to the fixtures and faucets.
Toilet wastebasket: Do not use your toilet as a wastebasket. Do not flush sanitary products, diapers or anything else that won't dissolve as it will clog your lines.
