Do-It-Yourself Advice from a Plumber
Certain plumbing issues are often solved with a little DIY and know-how, saving you the time and expense of calling for a plumber. Mr. Plumber Indy helps you correct plumbing problems and save money with quick and easy do-it-yourself tips for plumbing repair work.
Patch leaking pipes
- Whenever you have a pipe leak, you want a plumber to perform repairs or replacement – but what do you do about escaping water while you wait for the plumber to arrive? A quick patch helps you avoid water damage and extensive cleanup. If you are able to access the leaky pipe, perform a temporary repair using plumber’s putty or fiberglass tape.
Eliminate drain clogs
- For clogged toilets, boil a pot of water and pour it into the toilet bowl, holding the pot at waist height as you pour. Heat helps bust up clog materials and clear the line.
- For sink and tub or shower drains, sprinkle a cup of baking soda down the drain and follow it with a cup of white vinegar. Cover the drain opening and wait a minimum of 30 minutes. Uncover the opening and turn on the tap to flush the drain with warm water.
- Use a flanged plunger for toilet clogs and a cup plunger for sink or tub drain clogs – the right equipment is key! Make sure to remove strainers and drain plugs before you plunge a sink or tub.
Boost water pressure from fixtures
- Mineral deposits can settle in fixtures, inhibiting water flow so it feels like your water pressure is low. Clean removable showerheads and faucet aerators by removing them and allowing the component to soak in white vinegar overnight. Use a cleaning brush to remove minerals and flush the component with warm water before reinstalling.
- If your showerhead is not easily removable, no sweat! Fill a plastic baggie with white vinegar and secure it over the showerhead with a rubber band. Leave this sitting overnight then remove and turn on the shower to flush.
Stop running toilets
- First try a jiggle to knock chain kinks loose – kinks in the connector chain running from the handle to the flapper prevent the flapper from closing.
- Take off the tank lid and check the chain – tough kinks may require removal by hand.
- If the float valve is above water level, it causes the toilet to run because it’s not telling other components that the tank is full enough. Carefully bend the metal rod down slightly so the float valve cuts off water supply.
- Check around the bottom of the tank to see if debris buildup has stopped the flapper from making a strong seal – remove debris and see if the seal is secure.
Plumber Terminology Guide
When a plumber from Mr. Plumber Indy visits your home to provide an estimate or perform a plumbing repair, he or she may use terms you are unfamiliar with to describe the condition of your plumbing system or the work proposed.
To avoid confusion, we’ve decoded some of the most common industry terms so you can best understand your plumbing system and the work your plumber performs.
This plumbing fitting joins sections of pipe made of different materials, such as copper to PVC.
An aerator is a component installed on a plumbing fixture which mixes air into the outgoing stream of water. Adding air allows less water to be used without sacrificing volume, which helps you save water.
An angle stop (also called an angle valve) is used as a shutoff valve for an appliance or plumbing fixture, which cuts water supply. The shape of the component is a 90-degree angle.
Backflow is a condition that occurs when the direction of wastewater drainage reverses in the plumbing system. Backflow causes sewage backup and can contaminate potable water supplies.
Sewage backup is the overflow of wastewater that occurs when a drain is clogged, whether within the fixture’s dedicated drain line or deeper into the drainage system.
The discharge drain pushes wastewater into the ground or into a drain system. An example of a discharge drain is a sump pump.
A drain is an entrance into the drainage system of a home or building’s plumbing system, allowing wastewater and material to flow out of the building and to a municipal sewer line or septic system.
The plumbing fixture that controls the flow of water on a sink or tub.
A kind of shutoff valve that opens and shuts on a hinge to start and stop water flow. For example, the flapper in the bottom of a toilet tank.
A water control valve that stops water flow when the appropriate water level has been reached in a basin, such as a toilet tank.
Wastewater that drains from all plumbing fixtures except from toilets. This form of wastewater does not contain fecal matter.
A drain cleaning process that uses highly pressurized water to bust through blockages and scour buildup from inside pipe walls.
The main water supply line that runs into a home or building from the water meter. Additional supply lines stem from this pipe to feed taps throughout a home or building.
A clay-like compound used to create a seal for pipe joints, fixture bases, and other plumbing components exposed to pressurized water.
The length a pipe extends from the floor or wall to the opening of a drain.
A type of on-site sewage treatment system that uses an underground tank and treats sewage using anaerobic bacteria. Septic tanks are used in locations without access to municipal sewer.
The type of valve that disconnects water supply. Main shutoff valves control water supply at the main line, controlling water supply to the entire home or building. Fixtures also have shutoff valves that control water supply to that fixture only.
