That clogged drain or overflowing toilet may be intimidating or even just plain scary – especially if you don’t have a clue what to do – and most likely we’ve all been there. Luckily, you don’t need all the fancy tools of a plumber because here’s a few ways that you can solveyour bathroom dilemma without having to call one. I often get called out to plumbing jobs like these in Edinburgh, I’m always happy to help but don’t like to see customers spending money on things that could easily be fixed without calling out a plumber. 

Clogged Drains

Having a clogged drain in your sink, shower, or bath is inevitable. It is constantly bombarded by hair, soap, dirt, and other debris that build up in the drain. The job usually requires something stronger than household products to remove the thing that has been growing for some time. This is usually done by using a drain snake – you can purchase one from your local DIY store for under £10 – OR if you have a wire coat hanger on hand you can straighten it out and use that. Insert the drain snake (or hanger) a few inches into the drain and give it a good swirl then slowly pull it out. You’re likely to pull out a clump of hair and slime – definitely not pretty! Do it a few more times until you don’t get anything else. Finish up using a drain cleaner to remove the rest of the build-up and that should be you sorted!

Overflowing and Running Toilets

Having an overflowing toilet can be cause for panic, but don’t worry, it can easily be stopped. There is usually a water cut off valve located behind the toilet nearer to the floor. Turn the valve to the right to shut the water off and stop it from filling up the tank, which then goes to the bowl. If the toilet isn’t overflowing but the bowl is slowly filling up, check the ballcock (float) in the tank. Lift it so that it is in the horizontal position which will stop the water from running into the bowl.

Clogged Toilets

Clogged toilets are usually the cause for overflowing and running toilets. Once the water issue has been solved, it’s time to move on to the root of the problem: whatever is causing the blockage! In this instance your best friend will be a good old plunger. Try buying a newer plunger with a narrower end – the old ones are frankly just not as good, though, they get the job done. You want to cover as much of the drain hole as possible to maximise the suction and force. You may have to plunge a few times, but the blockage is usually cleared. If it doesn’t clear the blockage, try pouring hot water into the bowl. Let it sit for about 20 minutes and then try plunging again. This should do the trick.

Replacing or Tightening Wobbly Toilet Seats

Over time, toilet seats can become loose or look worn. It’s an easy fix to tighten the bolts, or remove them if you want to install a new seat. Find the bolts that are located at the back of the toilet. Some are encased in a plastic box that needs to be popped open. Remove the bolts (if replacing the seat) and position the new toilet seat, securing it in place with the new bolts. If you are tightening an existing seat, find the bolts at the back of the toilet seat and turn to the right (righty-tighty) until it is stable.

Thanks for reading this, good luck with your DIY work.

Disadvantages of Prefabricated Bathrooms

Prefab baths sometimes are made of too large components and it will be hard to fit them through the doors in your home. Some models are made for brand new homes, so that's why manufacturers used large parts. If you want to spend less time for the installation of your bathroom and at the same time to save resources, a good option is to purchase a prefabricated bathroom or also known as prefab bath. These baths are produced in factories and later installed in your house or apartment as a complete bath. A lot of functions and features are included such as bath liners and bath tubs. However, before going for this prefab baths you should be aware of some of the disadvantages they have. Read more to find out some potential problems you may experience and then when you know not only the benefits, but also the downsides, you will be able to take a proper decision. Uneven wear Some specialists in bathroom design and installation claim that prefab bath liners, which are applied to already existing bath tub, often will not fit correctly. With regular use poor fit may cause uneven wear and sometimes may cause damages to the liner. Mould may also occur when a liner is not fitted properly. So, to avoid any possible problems with fit, it is a good idea to buy a new tub. Leakage There are two common cases when prefab bathrooms may leak. The first one is when they are not installed properly and the second is, if they do not conform to the space. There are companies, which design their modules according to the customer demands. This is a good option, because when you take the measures of the walls and keep it in mind during the purchase, there will be no free space left. So, water will not get in the empty area between the module and the wall. Bathroom cleaning in Melbourne experts recommend to buy products for the prefab bathroom which are mould and mildew resistant. Take this protective measure, if you notice even small leaks. Large components Another downside of prefabricated bathrooms is that often they are made of large parts. For example, a shower stall or tub are usually too large and it will be difficult to fit them through the walls in your home. Some of these bathrooms are constructed for brand hew homes, that's why they consist of such large components. So, to avoid problems during the transportation, it is best to measure the dimensions of your doorways. Later when choosing between prefab baths you will know which one will fit properly. That was the main possible problems you can have with prefabricated bathrooms. The final decision is up to you. Decide whether the advantages or the disadvantages prevail and make your final choice.

Disadvantages of Prefabricated Bathrooms

Tips on Transforming Your Bath

by Harry Young
Everyone knows how luxurious a relaxing, deep, hot bath can be. These days we often want a quick and thorough wash but just don't have to time to run a bath and soak our troubles (and the dirt!) away. However, there is an easy solution. By installing a shower and bath screen over your bath you can keep the luxury of your bath and have the convenience of a shower. Is Your Bath Suitable? Before you buy a new shower and bath screen it is advisable to check the suitability of your existing bath. Modern showers can really pack a punch when it comes to delivering water and this force may be enough to move the bath screen out of position just enough to cause water to either drip or flow over the edge of the bath and onto the floor. Naturally, the purpose of a bath screen is to deflect water from the shower and disperse it back into the bath. Your bath may have raised or depressed handles. Both will impede the effectiveness of the screen's seal. Or your bath may have a rounded or bevelled edge or rim instead of a flat one. Bath screens are at their most effective when placed along a horizontal, flat-rimmed bath. The wall your shower is fitted on as well as the surrounding walls must be tiled or waterproofed and, although bath screens are relatively lightweight, sturdy and supportive. What Type of Screen? Modern bath screens not only look classy they are highly durable. Made from toughened safety glass they add a bright and airy feel to any bathroom, creating a sense of spaciousness, something a shower curtain just can’t do. There are various types of glass to choose from: clear, frosted or patterned, and different designs including square or round cornered, single or multi-sectioned. One of the most popular types these days is the four-fold. Single bath screens, whilst effective and stylish, fold inwards towards the bath like a gate. Four-fold screens however, employ a "concertina" action: when they are not required they simply fold back against the wall. They not only look good, they are compact, neat, space-saving and hence highly practical. They make it easier to get in and out of your bath when you choose to have one. Bath screens are easy to install, easy to clean and are much more hygenic than curtains, which are prone to mildew. For your peace of mind, check that your choice of screen is made from toughened safety glass. The Best of Both Worlds What if you really want to have a regular size shower but want a bath as well? Smaller bathrooms will struggle to accomodate two separate units. The answer is a shower bath! Shower baths are combination units that have a distinctive P-shape design. The taps end of the bath looks like a normal bath, but the shower end is slightly "bowled", hence the P-shape. That means more room to move around. They come complete with a fitted screen and your choice of shower. With a shower bath you can have a full size bath and what is essentially a spacious shower enclosure. The additional space a shower bath occupies is marginally more than a regular full size bath so will fit in the average size bathroom with ease.
