Pipes and Other Fixtures Coming Apart

Plumbing fixtures loosen up for a variety of reasons. Some items experience fatigue and will not run properly after several years of service. Weather conditions often cause physical pressure to pipes, causing them to shift and be dislodged. Damages in walls or concrete can cause some fixtures to get separated as well. 

Get any fixtures that are coming apart fixed as soon as possible. Ask for worn out items to be repaired or replaced quickly and get any leaks or other problems reviewed and sorted out before something terrible happens. These pipes and other items should also be checked if your property has had previous damages or if you’re going through maintenance or renovation project.

Damaged Drains

A block or clog can damage a drain. Clogs can cause pipes to wear out and weaken as water could leak, while some clogs might cause plumbing systems to shift and weaken.

You also need to be careful when using chemical- based drain cleaners. Some chemicals might cause the pipes and other features in your plumbing system to deteriorate and may also cause excess buildups if not removed completely after the treatment is done. 

You’ll can use a plunger to get clogs in your drain treated first. The pressure and force generated by such a device can help. A drain auger may work as well although it’s best for a professional to come to your property with an auger to take care of the issue.

Water Heater and Filter Break Downs

When the water heater in your home breaks down, It will be harder to regulate the temperature of the water in your home in addition to a general lack in water temperature. In general water heaters can not be repaired and need to be replaced once the unit comes to end of the manufacturer specified life span.  

A filter may be linked directly to your water heater to keep the water clean. When the filter wears out, the water that gets into your home will be vulnerable to contaminants.  

In many cases, the water heater and filter might break down together due to long usage or from fatigue. In other cases, physical damages from usage can result is failure to internal components. 

The water filters in your home should be checked regularly. You might want to get them replaced every year just to be safe. You should also ask for help if you see anything unusual in your water or if takes longer than usual for hot water to come through the faucets and fittings.
