Bathroom plumbing problems are bothersome and need to be remedied fast!

We understand that there are several types of bathroom repair, and so, it is important to find a plumbing expert who is ready to help whenever you need it.
Common Plumbing Problems
Bathroom plumbing problems are vast and plentiful:
- Toilets: noisy toilets, running toilets, toilet odor, toilet clogs, poor flushing.
- Bathtubs: foul odors, blocked drains, etc.
- Showers: clogged shower head, shower leaks, inconsistent water temperature, shower pans, tub/shower faucet repair, and replacement, etc.
- Other: Sinks, Faucets, Pipes/Fittings, Valves, Drains, Jacuzzis, etc.
- Hard Water symptoms.
- Clean Water issues.
A running toilet is problematic for your monthly water bill. Often, the solution is as simple as looking in the tank and unsticking the toilet’s flapper chain. So, before you get worried, take a look and check to see if the chain is stuck or the water is too high. If the toilet is clogged, the best tool to have is the humble toilet plunger - but you may need a drain snake.
Also, there is the bathroom which can have smells and your family would likely expect them to smell pleasant. If the bathtub is emitting foul odors and has a blocked drain, you will often find that the smells are not where they should be. Of course, sewer smells do not only come from the bathtub. A bad smell could be caused by a clog, mold, and even standing water, in the case of a leak. Ventilate the room and check for these leaks and clogs and if foul smell persists, you may have sewer gas coming up from the drain.
Washing up is another important part our day. It includes taking a warm shower. So, if the shower is not working, it is never a comfortable position to be in. There are a few common reasons why the shower is not working properly and these include a clogged shower head, shower leaks, or inconsistent water temperature. A clogged shower head typically indicates limescale buildup. A leaky shower head can cost you as much as a running toilet and should be fixed as soon as possible to avoid mold from excess moisture. Ultimately, all these bathroom plumbing issues could result to high water bills. Kwiatkowski Plumbing will help with any bathroom repairs and remodeling projects you have.
