Your bathroom uses a lot of water. Between your shower, toilet, and sink, your bathroom can average around 40 gallons of water used per day. The more you use your bathroom fixtures, the more wear will occur. There are some signs that you’re going to need bathroom plumbing, both subtle and obvious, but all are important to keep in mind so you can avoid bigger bathroom plumbing problems.
- Water pressure and volume: If the water coming out of your showerhead isn’t the same pressure or amount it used to be, your pipes and valves might be corroded, damaged, or clogged. Additionally, if it takes your sink or toilet a long time to fill, then there’s probably something wrong with your pipes.
- Water quality: The water that flows in your bathroom should be clean and clear. You shouldn’t be experiencing yellow or brown water that brings unpleasant smells. Water heaters or pipe condition can be the source of the problem, and both should be checked immediately.
- Water damage: When your bathroom plumbing is leaking, you can be faced with floor damage, staining, and mold growth. Pay attention to the floors and walls and see if you can determine the location of the leak. Be sure to call for a plumber, especially if you can’t find the leak.
