The situation when a water pipeline in a house is free of problems is directly proportional to the chance you have a clean water supply for your daily needs. Which homeowner does not desire this? But unfortunately, the reality is not always that sweet. Water pipes are often a problem that makes scratching your head (and body!) When it threatens the presence of clean water at home and makes it difficult for you to take a shower or even wash your hands.
The most annoying when the moment realizes this problem occurs when trying to do the dishes after a family meal session. The water will pool and cannot be channeled to the pipe because it is clogged. The initial step is definitely to check if there is a pile of leftover rice or other types of food clogging in the pipe filter section. But if this has been done and the water is still not working, do the following.
Try using a plunger or plumbing cleaner/cleaner. Before the cleaning process using this tool, it is better to flush the pipeline with enough hot water so that the clogging waste softens. You can also try to pour liquid mixture consisting of hot water, baking soda, and vinegar into the pipes.
Recognize the causes of clogging to avoid similar cases happening again later on. Among the many possibilities, some of the top ones are oil, fat, and other food marks. Always get used to throwing food scraps on the plate, if there is one, before putting it in the dishwasher.
Hire a Plumber to Check Your Plumbing System
If your house’s plumbing pipes are planted in concretes or the wall, you cannot expect to find the sources of trouble without professional tools. Some leaks are too small to detect with naked eyes. And in that case, tracer gas is needed. Moreover, pipe installation is not as easy as it seems. If you do it wrong, the same problem can occur again.
Therefore, you have to get a plumber to check your house regularly, at least annually or once every six months.
Low-pressure water is no less annoying. Imagine you are in a hurry to go to work or school, but you cannot take a bath because the shower cannot give you enough clean water to take a shower. The cause of this may be the problem (leakage) of the pipe or damage that is indeed from the network or the center.
When you have low-pressure water in the bathroom, you should check if the shower head is installed correctly. If it is loose, fasten. If it’s too tight, adjust it while trying to see if the water will come out. Replace the shower head with a new one every one or two years.
