Take Bathroom Plumbing Problems Seriously

logoWhat do you mean? you wonder. Of course I’m going to take bathroom plumbing problems seriously. It’s not like I’m just going to ignore that I can’t flush my toilet! Well, sure—we’re not suggesting you’d just go without the convenience of having a working toilet in your home to avoid dealing with the problem. However, not all bathroom plumbing problems in Phoenix are going be quite so obvious and demand immediate action.

The point we want to make today is that dealing with all bathroom plumbing problems promptly will help you to avoid the more immediate types of issues, such as a toilet you cannot actually use. Is there any way in which to completely avoid plumbing problems? No, unfortunately. What you can do, however, is reach out to our Sunny Plumbers at the first sign of trouble and deal with issues to prevent further problems.

Gurgling, Slow Drains? That’s a Problem!

This is a prime example of a situation calling for early intervention. Man, those drains are loud. They’re kind of bubbly, too. But hey, at least they’re still moving. Sure, they’re still moving—for now. Probably won’t be the case for much longer, though. Clogs don’t start as total blockages typically, but that’s where they’re most likely to head if you no nothing about them.

And no, you can’t deal with most clogs effectively on your own. You can and should try to plunge your toilet if it’s taking a few flushes to do the job. You can even go ahead and remove a small, shallow clog in your sink or tub if you can see it. However, when things are deeper in the system, it’s best to skip ineffective cleaners and techniques and instead call in the pros.

Foul Odors—Not What You’re Thinking!

Of course, your bathroom may have a foul odor here and there. That’s the nature of a bathroom, and elaboration isn’t needed. If your bathroom always has a foul odor in it, however, then you may have a problem on your hands. It could be a sewer line issue, a particularly nasty clog, or even issues with venting sewer gas out of your home.

It could also be something as simple and straightforward as a dried out p-trap, though. That highlights a major point that we want to make. Oftentimes, even figuring out what the problem is can be trickier than you might think. When it comes to actually resolving a problem once it’s diagnosed, things only get more complex!

Leaks Can and Do Happen…

…and should always be dealt with appropriately. It doesn’t matter if you “just” have a dripping faucet, or if there’s water pooling around your toilet. You absolutely need to schedule professional plumbing repairs when you notice a leak of any degree in your bathroom. Even if it’s not a matter of imminent damage, it is a matter of paying for water that’s going to waste.
