Many household DIY plumbing projects will eventually come up for homeowners. From a clogged bathtub to a smelly kitchen sink or even a shutoff valve, most of these issues are simple enough to fix. However, knowing your limits can sometimes be an issue, and call a service professional where needed.
A typical household plumbing issue is a clogged shower or tub drain. Often this is caused by hair buildup within the pipe, which causes a nasty clog. A quick and easy way to unclog the drain is with a wire hanger. Create a hook on the end and insert it into the drain. You can carefully pull out the hair from the pipe.
A spring cleaning technique to clean hard water deposits from your showerhead. Fill a small plastic bag with white vinegar, attach over the showerhead, and seal with a rubber band. Leave soak for an hour. Once you remove the bag, turn the water on to run for a minute to clear the vinegar.
Another easy fix for homeowners is faucet leaks around the base. You may need to replace it with new O-rings for a better seal.
