The most common bathroom issues and how to avoid them.

Every day thousands of people call a plumber out to their property to help with what’s usually a preventable issue.

So to help you avoid making an unnecessary callout we’ve put together a list of some of the most common issues faced in the bathroom and what you can do to avoid them.

Blocked drains

I think it’s safe to say that at some point we’ll all come across this problem and not necessarily in the bathroom.

It can be caused by a number of things, from collapsed pipes to foreign objects being thrown down the toilet.

The most obvious way to prevent this problem is to ensure that the only things going down your drain are meant to go down there.

You should also regularly bleach it to break down sludge that’s built up in there over time.

Leaking taps

This is one of the more annoying problems on the list, but it’s such an easy one to avoid! Fixing it is fairly simple too. All you have to do is replace the washer or tighten the connection.

To avoid it in the future make sure that you aren’t over tightening the tap when turning it off. Twist it until the water shuts down completely, no more than that.

Toilet problems

The toilet, depending on its age, is at risk of a whole host of issues. It could be down to something breaking in the cistern to a simple blockage.

A quick plunge can quickly get rid of any blockage but if the problem becomes a smelly one you might want to call out a plumber.

To avoid toilet issues regularly check inside your cistern to make sure that everything is working as it should and that you don’t stuff too much toilet roll down the loo.

Water heater woes

If your water heater has packed in, you’ll have to ring a plumber.

Tampering with it yourself is not only dangerous, but it could lead to you voiding the warranty too. Keep your eye out for issues like rust coloured water and a drop in heat as these are telltale signs that your heater is on the way out.
