It’s been a long day – what better way to unwind and relax than by taking a long, relaxing soak in your bathtub? We bet you couldn’t say no to that!
With frequent use however, you might not notice some plumbing problems springing up with your bathtub. If you want to continue enjoying your bathtub for years to come, you’ll want to deal with them as soon as possible.
You might be tempted to solve them on your own, but in doing so, you might be making matters worse than they are!
So instead of figuring out the solution to these bathtub plumbing issues on your own, why not contact a professional Melbourne plumber?
Our Melbourne plumbers can solve drainage problems
Soap scum, hair, and other debris – all of this can clog drains and can make water flow slower than usual.
Already tried the vinegar-hot water-baking soda combo?
If you’ve still got no results to show for it, we suggest contacting a Melbourne plumber right away.
In these cases, the issue likely lies with an issue deeper in your pipes.
Perhaps there’s a clog too deep for you to reach on your own, or older pipes are simply struggling to cope with water drainage.
Whatever the cause, it’s a problem that home solutions simply aren’t fixing!
Oftentimes, this can lead to:
- Unpleasant odours
- Water damage and leaks
- Stagnant and dirty water
To fix these, we suggest seeking the help of a Melbourne plumber. Our team will get to the heart of the issue, unclogging your slow drain and returning fast drainage to your bathtub in no time.
Drip, drip, drip… stop leaks immediately!
With belts as tight as they are right now, the last thing you want is an unexpectedly high water bill to throw your budget out of whack!
That’s exactly what a leaky faucet can lead to.
On top of that, drips can cause distracting noises. Drip, drip, drip… if you’re a light sleeper, even this quiet sound can keep you up at night.
Finally, drips can also leave water stains in the ceiling or walls of your home.
These are just some of the reasons you should get a dripping faucet fixed as soon as possible.
Sometimes, the issues is as simple as a faucets breaking or wearing out over time, or a washer may have gotten loose that needs to be tightened and checked.
In other cases, a leak may be the result of a deeper problem such as:
- Corroded valve seats
- Improper installation
- Water pressure issues
To ensure that the problem is correctly identified and fixed, we suggest talking to a professional plumber instead of going DIY.
Not just dripping – what about faucet clogs?
Draining clogs aren’t the only problem that can befall your bathtub taps – faucet clogs are another issue you may have to contend with.
Tired of getting slow running water every time you fill your tub? Low water pressure in your bathroom faucet may be caused by debris stuck in your pipes or a dysfunctional faucet valve.
While you could try disassembling the fauced and running through it with pipe cleaners, what if the clog is further up the chain, so to speak?
If your tap appears to be clogged, we suggest contacting your local Melbourne plumber right away to identify the issue – and stop larger issues manifesting in the meantime.
Hot water problems
It’s a cold evening in the dead of winter – something a long soak in a hot bathtub will fix. You traipse over to your bathroom and turn on the hot water tap. And then you wait.
If you’ve turned on your hot water but find yourself getting only freezing cold water, then you’ve got a problem.
More specifically, you’ve got a problem with your hot water system.
Some examples include problems with:
- Faucet or pipes providing hot water
- Mineral build-up in hot water pipes
- Hot water leaks
- Issues with the water heater itself
- Old or busted heating coils
