Why Are There Blue-Green Stains in My Sink?
If you notice a lot of bluish-green stains in your sink, your water might be acidic. This leads to it leaching metal from your piping and plumbing fixtures. When left untreated, this can lead to leaks in your copper piping.
Why does a plumbing system need a vent?
A plumbing system vent does just that: it “vents” the plumbing system in your home. A vent will look like pipes sticking out of your roof and are about 12” high. This vent allows sewer gases to be vented outside the home. Another function of the vent is that when a liquid goes down a pipe air must follow it. Without vents, draining one fixture may cause another fixture in the house to back up. A waste and vent system should keep sewer gas out of the home and drain every fixture well.
How do you clean a thermocouple?
Before you do anything, shut off the system your thermocouple is a part of. The easiest way to clean your thermocouple is with steel wool or a coarse sponge until all the soot or other matter is gone. If there's space, use a pencil eraser to get in between the threads of any screws connecting the thermocouple and valve control. Even though it might be tempting, avoid using regular cleaning products (especially if they contain flammable chemicals) on your thermocouple, as they can be damaging.
What causes low water pressure in the shower?
There are several different causes of low shower head water pressure. The most frequent reasons include the following: Outdated plumbing in your mains water system. If you reside in or close to a city or town center, the mains water system is to blame for your low water pressure. This results from the considerably older pipes used in city and town centers' mains water systems. The inconvenience that replacing the plumbing would produce in a city center makes it more difficult for the local authority to do so. The supply plumbing in your home's water system may need to be bigger. The most frequent cause of low water pressure is inadequate supply pipes. This is typical in older homes that still employ the original plumbing setup. As a result, less water will enter your house and go to the shower. Again, replacing is highly disruptive; therefore, probably, past owners did not make the necessary repairs. Your home's water system could be clogged. Once again, if you reside in an older home, it's possible that the iron piping in your water system is outdated. Iron is prone to rust, which can cause rust to fall off and clog the pipe.
