Water Pipes

Plumbing problems can arise in any home and if you are a DIY enthusiast, you might be inclined to fix these problems yourself. While it’s okay to attempt DIY fixes for minor problems, it’s best to hire a professional plumber for all other plumbing jobs.

But make sure that the one you hire has the right licensing. Inexperienced and unlicensed plumbers won’t provide good quality services or guarantees for their work, while a licensed plumber will. We at Mr. Splash Plumbing are a licensed and insured plumbing company that provides excellent regular and emergency services to clients across the region.

Why Hiring A Licensed Plumber Matters

We always recommend that property owners opt for a licensed plumber because:

  • Licensed plumbing professionals have to go through a training process before getting their certification. This gives them the expertise to handle all types of plumbing problems efficiently.
  • Since the plumber licensing process is well-regulated, you can rest assured that a plumber actually has the necessary certification.
  • Only a credible company that is serious about its business will have licensing. This also means they will be more apt to handle the job to industry standards.

Basic Plumbing Maintenance Tips

As a homeowner, you like to make sure that all the features and installations in your home are in a good condition. Plumbing is one of the aspects that needs regular maintenance.  But plumbing pipes are largely concealed behind walls or under the floor. This makes it difficult to carry out a visual examination to determine whether there are any issues in them.

The best way to make sure that all the systems are working as they should and that there is no deterioration or damage is to call in professionals like us at Mr. Splash Plumbing for regular maintenance.

Plumbing Tips

In addition, we recommend that homeowners follow these basic plumbing maintenance tips:

 

  • The best way to prevent drain clogs is to pour about half a cup of baking soda into the drain and follow it up with a cupful of hot water. Do this once a week for the kitchen and bathroom drains to keep them free of clogs.
  • If you find that there is hardly any or no water coming from the faucet, make sure that the valve under the sink is in the ‘on’ position. If that’s fine the problem may be caused by a clogged aerator. This small mesh-like part is fitted to the mouth of the faucet and is removable. Unscrew the end of the faucet, remove the aerator, clean it with a brush and reposition it. This should solve the water flow problem.
  • If your garbage disposal is blocked due to food particles and grease, put some ice cubes and eggshells into it. Run it and then pour some cold water into the disposal. This can help clear minor blockages.

Steps To Take When You Have a Flooded Bathroom

Dealing with a flooded bathroom can be quite challenging. The water can quickly cause damage to various features in the bathroom. It can flow into other areas and damage carpets, wooden flooring etc. This makes it necessary to tackle flooding problems quickly and efficiently.

Steps to Take

While it’s best to call in experienced plumbers like the ones at Mr Splash Plumbing for emergency plumbing services, there are certain steps that you can take while you are waiting for our  professional plumber to reach your location, such as:

  • The first thing to do is to switch off the main electrical supply. Water is a very good conductor of electricity and if any appliance or device comes into contact with it that can cause electrocution if someone is in that area.
  • The next step is to turn off the water supply at the mains.
  • Make sure that no kids and pets wander into that area.
  • If you are planning to walk into that space, wear rain boots while doing so.
  • Turn off all the faucets and valves in that area.

 How a Plumber Will Tackle the Problem

When our licensed plumber arrives at your location, he will:

 Use pumps to pump out all the excess water from the bathroom and make sure it is disposed of at a distance from that area.

  • Inspect all the plumbing in order to determine what caused the problem. If you have some inkling of where the leak originated from you can give them that information.
  • Once the problem has been identified, you will be provided with a solution and quote for the job.
  • Once you approve the quote, our plumber will fix the problem immediately.

  • Noisy plumbing is a very common sign of high water pressure.
  • Faucets and taps that leak at very specific times during the day are another indicator. If this generally occurs when you run a bath or take a shower, the extra pressure causes leaks in the in the sink faucet.
