4 Things A Plumber Knows About Your Bathroom Habits
Posted on January 8th, 2018 by Blue Mountain
Plumbers are not only great multitaskers, they are also great problem solvers. And they don’t need to search too deep to know the root cause of your plumbing issues. Here are a few common bathroom habits your plumber may know about.
You Take Long Showers
If your shower has mold, your bathroom is too moist, which probably means you’re taking too long of showers. Run the exhaust fan during and after a shower or hot bath to remove excess humidity.
Someone Has Long Hair
If your shower drain is on low flow, excess amount of hair may be the culprit. If hair is blocking your drainage, use a clothes hanger with a J hook at the end to try and pull it out. If this doesn’t work, call your local plumber.
You Use Your Toilet As A Garbage Can
If your toilet becomes clogged one too many times, you’re not using it properly. Don’t use your toilet as a trash can — only flush human waste and toilet paper down.
You Use A Lot Of Detergent
Take a look at your shower curtain. If it’s scum-free, you have soft water. If you have white film around your showerhead and plumbing fixtures, that means you have hard water. People who use less detergent typically have soft water, which is better for your appliances and the environment!
