When you need new appliances, a new stacked washer and dryer system, utility sink or other laundry plumbing fixture installed, you can trust the professionals at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Oneida to help.
While plumbing and laundry room appliance installation may seem like a simple and straightforward project for homeowners, common plumbing issues often include improperly installed washer outlet boxes, issues with water supply and drainage pipes, or washing machines with improperly sized pipe or drainage fittings.
Without these crucial plumbing features installed correctly, your laundry center lacks quick and safe water supply shutoff capabilities and reliable drainage of excess water from the washing machine.
Common Laundry Room Plumbing Issues
Like any type of plumbing or appliance in your home, over time and with frequent use, parts and machinery in your laundry center may become worn or damaged, leading to several plumbing issues like clogs, leaking or flooding.
Common laundry plumbing repairs include:
- Flooding and Clogs: One of the most common problems found throughout residential laundry rooms, flooding is often the culprit of washing machine drainage lines. As you wash items, lint, debris, soap and other buildup can get caught in your washing machine’s drainage plumbing, which will eventually clog and cause water to back up through the pipe and flood. Avoid messy flooding by having a plumber frequently visit to clear out drains and remove any blockages.
- Utility Sink and Faucet Repair: Like your washing machine, utility sinks can often become clogged with lint, soap buildup or other debris that can eventually back up. Fixing your sink can be an easy problem to tackle. Simply turn off the water supply, remove the u-shaped pipe connected to the washer’s drain and clean the pipe thoroughly. If you have a stacked laundry unit that doesn’t drain to a sink, you may experience a similar clogging issue. To fix this, check that your lines aren’t obstructed with a sock or similar item.
- Leaking Pipes and Fittings: As you use your laundry center, regularly check the area around your washing machine for signs of water damage around the floors, walls and sink. If you note damp spots, then you may have a leak in your plumbing like loose fittings, cracks or holes in your hoses or damaged sink piping. Some of these issues can be repaired by tightening loose connections, or they may require the expertise and tools of a professional plumber.
