Making sure that your plumbing system is working in optimal capacity is hard work. It is both time-consuming and labor-intensive. Yet, there is nothing you can do to avoid it. After all, it is one of the primary responsibilities of every homeowner.
This article seeks to help make the job a little easier for you.
- Stopping Pipes from Creaking – The best way to silence a creaking pipe would be to wrap it in felt with adhesive. Doing this is actually pretty straightforward. First you need to run hot water on it to make the copper pipes expand, thus making it grind against your pipe hangers and your joists. Make sure to remove each of the hangers before wrapping the pipe in felt. Once that is done, it is simply a matter of putting the fastener back.
- Fixing Loud Sinks – This is rather simple. In order to stop the sounds your sink is making, you will need to put in some expanding foam. Make sure to put the foam in between the spaces to ensure that it effectively absorbs the vibrations.
Make sure to try these tricks yourself.
