Summertime is a great time of the year to get out and enjoy yourself, especially when you have a nice, cool and comfortable home to return to at the end of a long, fun filled day. Like any other time of the year though, you may find yourself stuck at home trying to deal with some problems around the house. No one likes to miss out on fun summer activities, so the Mesa AZ plumbers at The Sunny plumber have some tips to help you deal with summer bathroom troubles in your home. You may just be surprised by how easily resolved some of these common issues are.
A Common Toilet Repair Misconception
One very common service call that we get during the summer months is about leaking toilets. If you have noticed your toilet seems to have sprung a leak this summer, we have some good news for you: it is very possible that your toilet is not actually leaking, but instead playing a very cruel trick on you. The water pooling around the base of your toilet is very likely the result of condensation that simply had nowhere else to go.
Obviously the temperature in your home, particularly areas like bathrooms that tend to get as much of the AC as the rest of your home does, tends to be a bit higher than during the rest of the year. The problem is, the water in your toilet tank is still going to be quite cold. Because of this difference in temperature, it is very possible that your toilet tank is “sweating”. This means that the water you are seeing is likely just condensation on the outside that has dripped off of your toilet tank onto the floor. Evening out the temperature a bit by cooling your bathroom more can help avoid this issue and the potential for water damage on the area of the floor surrounding your toilet.
Another Summer Bathroom Trouble to Avoid
Condensation can also be an issue at your fan vent. If the vent is built into your wall, it may not be at enough of an angle to shed water to the outside. It is also possible that the vent damper is not positioned properly. Again, water dripping from your fan fixture can do some damage to your walls and floors, so it is important to resolve such problems.
