COVID-19 can cause plumbing to have more wear and tear, with families needing to stay home. The COVID-19 pandemic has turned our homes into an extended holiday. Plumbing problems often occur during the holidays because of the number of people inside your home. Your plumbing is being worked harder right now, and below C4 Plumbing will discuss three common plumbing problems that happen from plumbing overuse.
Cold Showers Are No Fun!
Having everyone home all the time can be fun, but it can put much pressure on your plumbing system. More hot water will be used, and this can cause a lot of cold showers to happen. How can you fix this problem? Usually, there is a simple solution to keeping hot water in supply for your home. C4 Plumbing will check the temperature setting. A simple adjustment can make all the difference. If your water heater is older, it may be time to upgrade to an energy-efficient model. It is also a great idea to plan showers. By spreading them out, you will give your water heater time to replenish the hot water, ensuring everyone gets a nice hot shower!
Clogged Drains and Toilets
Waking up to an overflowing toilet or clogged drain can really put a damper on your day. With COVID-19 and everyone home, it is crucial that you explain to everyone what should go down drains, garbage disposals, and toilets. If your drains or toilets do become clogged, it is important that you call a professional such as C4 Plumbing. We will be able to repair the clogged drain or toilet quickly to ensure your day goes on without any more problems!
Faucet Drips Keeping You Up At Night?
Having a leaky faucet can be one of the most annoying sounds in the world. It is especially irritating at night when it is quiet. Faucets can leak for a variety of reasons and can be quiet costly when you receive your water bill. There are four types of faucets, and each one works differently:
- Ceramic-Disk Faucets
- Cartridge Faucets
- Ball-Type Faucets
- Compression Faucets
All faucets can leak from overuse, broken gaskets, and O-rings, as well as mineral deposits. If your faucet is leaking, give us a call. Leaky faucets are an easy fix that can save you money in the long run!
