Saturday, May 14, 2016 - Posted by MPD Milton Plumbing, in Milton Plumbers

 The bathrooms of a home are one of the most commonly used rooms of a house. Admit it; you spend most of your time in your home`s bathroom, just relaxing in that tub or standing under the shower. And since you have spent too much time in there, you get used to its look and feel that is has maybe become outdated.  If you want to have a bathroom overhaul to again experience its pleasure, you just have to fill in the lacking items and replace the old bathroom faucets with new modern durable ones. You also don’t need to spend that much money in replacing bathroom faucets; popular brands such as Moen, Delta Faucet, American Standard and Kohler sell many great faucets at reasonable prices.

When figuring out the best new look for your bathroom, you do not need to alter right away the positions of the things placed inside it. Your shower cubicle must be in your priority list and if it needs the best make-over, if replacing the shower curtains to the decorations is needed, then go ahead and do it. There are a lot of helpful ideas that you can also get from magazines and other people that you can trust.

Do you need to change them all or you only need to change shower and sink faucets, try to ponder upon various types of bathroom faucets.

Try putting them in a regular height so everyone can use it.

If you share your bathroom with other users then you might need to come up with a plan for the bathroom that is applicable to all users. Aside from the faucet, the floor is the next best thing to update to change the look of your bathroom. It should not be slippery for everybody’s safety. Consider as well the height of the mirror. It is better to place it in such a way that even a small kid can reach it.But before you go all out on your bathroom make-over, do ask yourself first why you think you need to make-over your bathroom. Do you really need new bathroom faucets? How much you can afford? Do you really need a bathroom remodeling? These are the basic questions that you might need to consider first; from there you can get ideas for further actions.

Low Water Pressure In Houses

Saturday, May 7, 2016 - Posted by MPD Mississauga Plumbers, in Mississauga Plumbing

 When a home has water pressure that is too low it can seem like every task must be completed in slow motion. It’s hard to rinse the dishes or even your hair, and appliances like washing machines take forever to fill on each cycle.

The flushing operation of a toilet is not affected since a properly filled tank is all it needs for a good flush, but it may seem to take forever for the tank to fill back up after a flush. If you notice the symptoms at more than one location in the home, then the pressure coming into the home may be insufficient.

Possible Causes Of Low Water Pressure

A low water pressure situation could appear out of thin air and you are on a municipal water supply, it may be a neighbourhood-wide problem. To follow up on this, check with neighbours or the water supplier to see if anyone else is experiencing a similar problem which indicates a problem in their system and not your home. Always take extra precaution and call a local licensed plumber to verify the problem of the low water pressure. If you live in the Peel area, call Mississauga plumber Mayfield Plumbing & Drains for all your low water pressure problems and solutions.

If it is only in your home and all areas are affected, the problem may be with a pressure regulator if your home is large enough it may have one installed. These are normally installed in the water supply system before it reaches the house, so may be found near the water meter or in the home mechanical room.

Those using well water, either an individual well or community well, are likely to find the problem with a pressure tank or a gauge. If the problem is with the well itself or the water pump, the end result is more likely to be no water at all than low pressure, so the well is rarely the culprit when the pressure is simply weak.

Other Possible Causes Of Low Water Pressure

Even when the incoming water pressure is adequate, it is still possible to have pressure problems. The best way to determine the cause is to check all the water outlets inside the house to determine if they are all affected or only some. In low water pressure in home situations, it is always best to call a local licensed plumber to help correctly diagnoses the reason for the low water pressure problem and how to correctly fix it. The pressured water supply system in a home is a serious matter and best left to the licensed professionals.

Pipes that have become filled with mineral deposits may finally reach a point where the pressure is reduced throughout the house. When replacing old pipes, it is sometimes amazing to see how much material can be inside a pipe that still functions and people often wonder, upon seeing the old pipes, how they had any pressure at all. So, the problem can get pretty severe before it is actually noticed. Many old parts of the GTA and surrounding with older homes may still have galvanized steel pipes that corrode over time and produce low water pressure problems. To replace and update old piping to new, call Mayfield Plumbing & Drains or your local area licensed plumber.

However, if a seeming whole-house problem develops rather suddenly, this often happens after some disruption in the water supply, even when it was a planned repair. If you have noticed recent construction or street work in your neighbourhood, then some very small material may have come through the pipes and plugged the water service supply.

If you can see a crack near the end of your faucet, then it probably has an aerator and this can easily be removed and cleaned. When the end is attached too tightly to remove with your hand, place a rubber glove or something similar between the faucet and a pair of pliers or wrench to protect the faucet while you turn and remove the end piece. Make a note of how the pieces fit together so you know how to put it back together. Again, DIY is not always the safest route, even on minor plumbing repairs; it is highly recommended to leave all home plumbing problems to the certified plumber professionals.

Sometimes a minor pressure problem can seem larger than it is if the home already has water-saving devices installed, especially if they become clogged for some reason. If the problem persists and the cause cannot be determined at this point, it is time to have a licensed plumber help with further trouble-shooting to be certain that the pressure is adequate for appliances to function properly without damage.

Resolving Toilet Leaks

Sunday, May 1, 2016 - Posted by MPD Brampton Plumbers, in Brampton Plumber

 In order to fix a toilet leak or an issue with a toilet, first take the time to thoroughly diagnose the specific situation so that you ensure you are fixing the correct issue. A toilet leak can generally be a dirty and messy issue, so diagnosing the problem is key.

An overflowing clogged toilet can get lots of unwanted effects for example dirty toilet water on your own flooring, flooring damage, smells, and/or water through a ceiling below if unattended and if the leak is big enough. Therefore, you must either fix it yourself or call a competent professional Brampton plumber such as Mayfield Plumbing & Drains to properly fix a toilet leak.

Toilet overflows and leaks are generally either from the root of the toilet inside the integral trap or from the center, rear of the fixture at tank level. To discover a leak that may be occurring from outside of the toilet, visual inspect the entire toilet from all angles to see if there is any visible water dripping or if there is anything physically wet. Inspect the tank to bowl seal, the inside tank bolts that hold the tank to the bowl, inspect the water supply hose to the toilet to the shut off valve and inspect  the base of the toilet as it sits on the floor. Flush the toilet and visually inspect the toilet.

In comparison, if you discover water dripping from your rear of the toilet at about seat level, the problem may be related to a faulty seal involving the tank to bowl. In any case, you must switch off the water to the toilet in the water valve and flush the bathroom to empty the tank. A tank to bowl faulty gasket is a common toilet problem for older toilets. Over time, the rubber gasket becomes hard and brittle and could create a leak. When replacing a tank to bowl seal gasket, it is wise to also replace the toilet tank to bowl bolts and rubber gaskets.

To make an effort to correct a toilet leak in the bottom at the base, first simply snug upward (do not over tighten) the bolts holding the toilet to the flange. Refill the toilet tank and flush to and see whether the leak goes away. If it doesn’t, disconnect and re-empty the toilet and tank; unbolt the toilet from a floor, disconnect the water supply line from the tank, and carefully rock the toilet off the flange. Once the toilet has been removed, remove the old toilet seal gasket and replace using a brand new toilet seal gasket. Toilet gaskets come in rubber and in wax format.  When the toilet is off, inspect the floor around the flange, check of possible water damage and corrosion. If the floor seems damaged, call Brampton plumber Mayfield Plumbing & Drains.

First snug upward (do not over tighten) the tank bolts in the bottom of the tank, to make an effort to correct a toilet flow from your tank. Subsequently refill the bathroom and see whether the flow goes away. If it doesn’t, disconnect and re-empty the toilet; unbolt the tank from your toilet foundation, scrutinize the rubber washers in the bolts along with the tank-to-bowl gasket. Not all toilet leaks are caused by old or faulty parts, in some cases the toilet or tank may actually be cracked and a new toilet will be required. A cracked toilet or tank is not something that should be repaired. From leaky toilets, toilet repairs, toilet installations to toilet leak diagnoses; call Mayfield Plumbing & Drains for all your toilet problems and solutions. 647-229-3766.
