Many plumbing experts agree that the bathtub is the most frequently used of your plumbing fixtures. Whether or not they include a shower, bathtubs usually get at least one use per day, the frequency of which is compounded by the number of people you have in your home. This means that any problems with your bathtub will be a serious inconvenience.
As a homeowner, it pays to be familiar with basic plumbing troubleshooting so you can remedy unforeseen problems while waiting for the professionals to arrive. Here are some of the best tips from our experts in Oak Plumbing Inc. about how to deal with a faulty tub.
Leaks in the water connections beneath your bathtub can quickly become a plumbing nightmare. You don’t have to be the world’s best plumber to notice wet discoloration on the ceiling of the room directly below the bathroom. When this happens, the first thing you want to do is turn off the water main, if possible. Then, locate the pipes that connect to the tub and check for any loose connections. If the problem persists, avoid using the tub and call your plumber right away.
The faucet that feeds directly into the tub can sometimes show signs of leakage as well. Oftentimes, the solution to this issue is a simple faucet replacement. However, if you have no experience dealing with anything plumbing related, it’s always best to leave it to the professionals.
