The 5 Most Common Household Plumbing Mistakes

The 5 Most Common Household Plumbing Mistakes

Plumbing is one of the last things we think about when it comes to our household issues. However, faulty plumbing can be more detrimental than you can possibly imagine.


Plumbing is one of the last things we think about when it comes to our household issues. However, faulty plumbing can be more detrimental than you can possibly imagine. Typically, one of the first issues of faulty plumbing is leaks, followed by repair or replacement costs. If the issue escalates, you may be finding yourself amidst significant repair work of the floor or walls if signs of water damage are observed. Here are the five most common household plumbing mistakes that you must avoid.


Water pressure

If you own too many plumbing appliances, fittings or fixtures in your home, you are likely to have low water pressure. Low water pressure can be especially detrimental if you are dealing with appliances that require high water pressure to perform well, like a dishwasher or washing machine. One hack to get rid of low water pressure is to avoid adding too many appliances and use high-pressure faucets only for essential appliances.


Plumbing space

When designing space for your plumbing network, remember to keep it spacious. Pipes must have ample room. This helps in easy maneuvering and cleaning if there are blockages in the pipe or if you are trying to generally clean the pipes. Always make sure to maintain ample space around your pipe network when you make any additions like cupboards or shelves.


Choosing fixtures

It is natural to want to make your bathroom as functional as possible. One of the most common mistakes that people commit is to add numerous appliances and pipes to accommodate bathroom fittings and appliances. However, placing too many appliances or fittings in a constructed space will always make the space inconvenient. Whether you are designing your plumbing or furnace piping, make sure not to clutter the space too much.


Keeping the plumbing clean

One of the most common plumbing issues that many Edmonton homeowners face is clogging or pipe blockage and the main reason for this is not using the washroom and kitchen sink correctly. When using any of the two spaces, make sure you do not get any waste like egg shells, tea powder, coffee residue or oil, cat litter, etc., get in the plumbing system or pipes. This will keep your plumbing system clean and make it last longer.


Unexpected issues in the washroom

If you have younger kids and face frequent toilet blocks, one reason that could be happening is that your kids may be putting their toys and clothes or large wads of toilet paper in the toilet. It is best to let your kids use toilets independently only after they have grown up a bit. Monitoring their toilet use and counselling them about proper toilet use will help you to avoid huge clogging issues.
