Fixing Bathtub Leaking, Crack and Other issues
BATHROOM REPAIR DUE TO LEAKING OR OTHER ISSUES
Bathtub repair is never an easy task. For repair of bathtub because of leaking bathtub, leaking taps, choked drain pipe, cracked bathtub, etc., it is normal to call a plumber instead of a renovation contractor who would replace your bathtub instead. Some plumber may replace and install a new bathtub for you but most of them do not provide such installation service.
Bathtub Care and Maintenance
It is important to take good care of your bathtub and maintain it properly to avoid short-term bathtub problems. You may wish to observe the following to save some bathtub repair costs:
- Detergents used to clean the bathtub should be non-abrasive so that it does not damage the surface of the bathtub;
- With hair and other debris washed into the bathtub drain pipe, the drain pipe may be easily clogged. You should clear it with drain pipe cleaner or declogger and hot water every 2 to 3 months. This will prevent the clogging of drain pipe of the bathtub.
- Check for bathtub cracks and quickly engage a plumber to seal up. Otherwise, there will be mildew growth and leads to cleaning difficulties. In addition, if the cracks gets bigger and deeper, you may face the problem of leaking bathtub.
- Check that the stopper is working properly. Overtime, the stopper may not close and release properly. If this happens, it is time to change the stopper.
