Regularly inspecting your plumbing fixtures can help you catch leaks and other plumbing problems before they become major issues.
You spent the morning at the scavenger hunt, but you wish you’d found a plumber because when you returned home, you noticed a water stain on your ceiling right under your bathroom.
It’s not surprising that a pipe or other fixture in your bathroom would leak. The spruce.com notes, “Bathrooms get lots of use by every member of the family, and it’s no surprise that this is the room most likely to see plumbing problems.”
The Spruce recommends that you inspect your own plumbing to catch small problems before they become big ones. One place the Spruce recommends checking are the faucets in the bathroom.
“It is the sink, tub, and shower faucets that most often need attention in a bathroom,” the spruce.com says. “Check them regularly for leaks. Replace bad washers or cartridges to remedy dripping faucets. Water supply lines hidden in the walls for tub and shower drains can be especially problematic since such hidden leaks can cause major damage before you even spot it. Hidden water pipe leaks often reveal themselves with signs of water damage in the room below the plumbing pipes. Watch the operation of faucets as you run the water—if you notice weak water pressure or an irregular spray pattern, it may be because there is calcium buildup on the aerator. Aerators can be removed and cleaned manually, or calcium buildup can be removed by soaking in vinegar.”
