There’s nothing more enjoyable than entertaining your family and guests in your Jackson, Mississippi, home. But preparing your house for company can feel a little stressful. You may find yourself consumed with whether you’ve created proper accommodations. One of the important things to address before you have guests in your home is any plumbing problems. To ensure that your home is officially guest-ready, address these three plumbing problems:
Running toilets waste a lot of water per day. They’re also annoying to listen to and may cause problems with flushing. You may have been putting off fixing that guest room toilet because you hardly use it. But you’ll definitely want to take care of this simple fix before you have a house full of guests. Typically, the problem lies with tank parts, and you might only need to replace the flapper and chain.
Clogged or slow drains can leave your guests standing in dirty water while showering. They might also have problems flushing waste down a toilet. These problems can lead to bad smells, water damage and make the bathroom feel less clean. Whether your drain is fully clogged or slowing down, try plunging it or call a plumber to clear the line. Don’t use over-the-counter drain cleaner to rectify the problem.
Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure in a shower can cause your guests to have to shower longer. It can also lead to difficulty removing the soap from their hair and body. Most often, the cause of low water pressure is an old or clogged shower head or leaky pipes. If you’ve installed a new shower head and it doesn’t alleviate the problem, call a plumber to see if there are any leaks in your home.
