PHOENIX, Nov. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The holiday season is about to begin in earnest. Parker & Sons cherishes the time spent with friends and family, but notes the impact guests can have on a home plumbing system. Furthermore, Parker & Sons encourages individuals to schedule a plumbing inspection following the hectic action of the holiday season.
Parker & Sons reports that it is very common for homes to develop issues with their plumbing systems during the days and weeks following the holiday season. This unfortunate uptick in disrepair is nothing to panic over, but it is something that needs to be addressed. If homeowners are worried about their plumbing systems, they should contact a highly trained professional plumber at their earliest convenience. Parker & Sons list a few of the common plumbing issues that may arise.
It is not uncommon to experience 'phantom flushes' with an older toilet that has recently seen a good deal of use. This issue occurs when there is a small leak between the water tank and the toilet bowl. Parker & Sons comments that this is often an easy problem to fix. It is often caused by a worn flapper or seal. Replacement is a simple task that may not even require the services of a professional plumber.
Water trickling into the tank is another common toilet problem linked to overuse. This could become more problematic than water leaking into the toilet bowl as the tank will not empty itself automatically like the toilet bowl. Parker & Sons advises that this is an issue that may require the attention of a professional plumber. However, homeowners may be able to diagnose trickling tanks on their own. Parker & Sons notes that they may be able to listen for the telltale hiss of water leaking in through the intact valve.
Of the endless variety of toilet problems one can experience, clogs are by far the most common. Parker & Sons comments that homeowners should feel empowered enough to tackle clogs on their own, however if they are unable to remove the clog quickly, they should contact a skilled plumbing professional. Clogs will not take care of themselves overtime; in fact, they may only worsen.
"With the holidays starting soon, this is as good a time as any to start thinking about plumbing maintenance. We understand that home maintenance isn't fun, but it is something you can't just ignore. Call us now or early in 2017 and make your plumbing problems a thing of the past," said Josh Kelly of Parker & Sons.
