What Your Plumbing Says About You

If a plumber were to come to your house for a repair, they could know everything about your habits without ever even knowing you. Based on the issue that they are there to fix, they will know exactly how you caused it.

Mold in the Bathroom

If a plumber comes for a repair and sees mold, they’ll immediately know that you take long showers at a very high temperature. As the water temperature increases, the amount of steam will increase. The longer you’re in the shower, the longer the steam and moisture will sit in the room. Doing this often, especially if you don’t use an exhaust fan, will expedite the growth of mold in your bathroom.

Slow Draining Bathtub

Most of the time that there’s a slow moving drain, hair is to blame. Whether someone in the house has long hair or a lot of body hair, it will collect within the drain pipe and cause blockages. To avoid drain clogs caused by large amounts of hair, purchase a drain guard. Now all of the hair will build up over the drain guard and you can easily wipe it off after each bath or shower.

Frequently Clogged Toilets

Toilets do clog every once in awhile, but it should not be backing up multiple times per week. If clogs are happening all too frequently, you’re probably using your toilet to flush objects other than toilet paper. Your plumbing is not meant to handle cotton swabs, paper towels, or toiletry packaging. Place a trash can in the bathroom and throw your garbage out this way.

When the plumber comes for a repair, they’ll usually be able to tell how the problem was caused and you should change your habits moving forward.
