Pro Tips from a Plumber – Troubleshoot Before You Call

Below, the Jarboe’s Plumbing, Heating & Cooling team explains some quick troubleshooting tips for common household plumbing issues. Give these a try before you give us a call – you might find you don’t need a plumber after all! However, if you are not comfortable performing this work yourself, don’t hesitate to call us, as we are happy to assist you whenever needed.
Remove drain clogs
- For toilet clogs, pour a pot of hot water into the toilet basin from waist height. The heat works to dissolve material clogging your toilet.
- For sink, tub, and shower drains, pour one cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by a cup of vinegar. Cover the drain with a stopper or towel and allow the solution to sit at least 30 minutes. Next, remove the drain cover and pour a pot of boiling water into the drain.
- Plungers can be used to dislodge toilet clogs as well as clogs in sinks and tub or shower drains. Make sure you use the right tool for the job – use a flanged plunger (also referred to as a toilet plunger) for toilet bowl clogs, and a cupped plunger for sink and tub drain clogs. Before you plunge a sink or tub drain, remove the strainer or stopper. Form a tight seal around the drain with the plunger and use sharp, swift plunges for 30 seconds. Check to see if water now drains
- and repeat if necessary.
Stop damaging leaks
- Leaks in plumbing piping should be repaired by a plumber, but you want to avoid water damage to your home until a professional arrives. If you are able to pinpoint the location of the leak, patch it using plumber’s putty or fiberglass piping tape. Don’t wait too long to call for repairs, as these are temporary solutions.
Stop a running toilet
- First try jiggling the toilet’s handle. Sometimes, the chain that links the handle to the flapper valve becomes kinked, which causes the toilet to run. A jiggle helps knock kinks loose so the flapper is able to seal properly and cut water running into the basin.
- Remove the toilet tank lid and check the chain for kinks – you may need to manually straighten out the chain to allow the flapper to properly close.
- If the float valve (the metal rod with a rubber bulb at the end) is above water level in the tank, the toilet continues to run. Gently bend the float arm down.
- Check to make sure the flapper forms a good seal at the bottom of the tank. Sometimes, mineral debris may accumulate and get in the way of the flapper. Remove buildup to see if the flapper is able to properly seal.
Improve water pressure
- Mineral deposits within sink faucets and showerheads restrict water flow, leaving you with inadequate water pressure from the fixture.
- If your showerhead is removable, unscrew it and let it soak overnight in a bowl of white vinegar. Rinse the showerhead with tap water and use an old toothbrush or scrub brush to remove mineral deposits before reattaching.
- Do the same for sink faucets with aerators – unscrew the aerator from the faucet opening and soak it in a glass of white vinegar overnight, then scrub away mineral deposits, rinse, and reinstall.
- If you cannot remove your showerhead, fill a small plastic bag with white vinegar and use a rubber band to secure the bag around the showerhead. Allow it to soak overnight, then flush by turning on the shower.

A leak in your pipes could damage your home’s infrastructure and foundation and should be addressed as soon as possible.
The first thing you should do is shut off the water. Whenever a plumbing emergency happens, use your water shut off valve right away.
