Showers and Tubs
When you come right down to it, the bathrooms in your Watsonville home are important rooms. You want them to be comfortable and serene and, most of all, you want them to work properly! If you are having problems with your showers and tubs, let us know. Our expert plumbers will get them fixed for you quickly.
One of the most common plumbing issues we see in showers and tubs is clogged drains. Most people don’t think that they are putting foreign objects down these drains. However, between the hair that falls out during a bath or shower and soap residue, it’s easy for a clog to form. This is especially true if one or more of the people using the tub or the shower has long hair.
Clogs in showers and tubs usually happen slowly, as hair gets stuck, gets covered by sticky soap residue, and then more hair sticks. Over time, you may notice your tub draining slowly or realize that you are standing in water as you shower. If you don’t take care of the drain at this point, it will eventually close completely and your shower or tub will be useless until you get it fixed.
Low Water Pressure
Another shower/tub plumbing problem that we see regularly is that the water pressure has dropped. This is more common in showers than in tubs, though we have seen it in both.
Water pressure usually drops because minerals have built up somewhere in the plumbing system. These stop the water from running as freely, so the pressure you experience is lower. This buildup most commonly happens in the shower head itself, though it can also happen in a pipe or a valve.
Repairing Common Shower and Tub Problems
Fortunately, these common shower and tub problems are easy to repair. Give us a call, and we’ll send a skilled expert out to get your bathroom running again in no time.
When it comes to clogged drains, our techs are experts in the use of the plumbing snake. This is a long, flexible metal hose. The tech can stick this down into your drain and use various attachments to cut through your clog or pull it back out.
While you can rent one of these at the hardware store, we recommend having a plumber in Watsonville do the job for you. If you get a snake that is too narrow for your pipes, or if you run it too far down them, it is easy to get it stuck inside. Getting it out can necessitate a much more major and invasive repair.
