Your Hometown Plumbing Professionals

With 59 years on the job, Ray & Son Heating & Air Conditioning has handled a lot of bathroom plumbing repairs in Nashville, Valdosta & the surrounding areas. We’ve found that a little prevention goes a long way. To keep the fixtures, faucets, pipes, and all aspects of the bathroom in peak working order, we’ve put together a plumber’s tips for maintenance:

  • Wipe after use – Keep sponges handy in the bathroom and make a habit to wipe down sinks, bathtubs, shower doors, toilets, faucets, and all fixtures after use. This keeps the area cleaner and looking nicer over the long term.
  • Hair removal – Hair is a problem for drains. Hair from shaving or strands that come off in the shower or during brushing should be collected with a bit of toilet paper and thrown away.
  • Faucet care – Clean faucet aerators regularly and handle repair needs quickly
  • Clog prevention – Use drain strainers to catch hair, soap chips, and foreign objects and clean them often. Run hot water down the drains for several minutes once per week. Don’t put anything but recommended products down the drain or toilet.
  • Shower and tub upkeep – Caulk once per year or if you notice an area that is missing, worn, or showing holes in the sealant to prevent water from getting behind the walls or tile.
  • Showerhead upkeep – Regularly remove the shower head, gently clean the outlet and inlet holes using a thin wire and flush the head with clean water. Soak the showerhead in vinegar to remove mineral deposits. A good trick is to put one cup of vinegar in a plastic bag, place it over the shower head, and secure it with a twist tie. Leave in place overnight.
  • Check for toilet tank leaks – Place a few drops of food coloring in the tank and wait an hour. If the color has leaked into the toilet bowl, you need to replace the tank ball to prevent water from seeping out.
