The piping around a water softener can be confusing when attempting to install a water softener. A cold water branch before the water softener doesn’t necessarily indicate a problem. It’s standard procedure to branch off one cold water line to supply outdoor hose connections (and sometimes another to the kitchen sink and refrigerator icemaker if you don’t want to drink softened water).
Water for gardens and lawns doesn’t need to be softened. The main supply line to the rest of the house continues to the softener. Once the water leaves the softener, it should branch into two lines: a cold line that runs to interior fixtures and faucets, and a line that feeds the water heater. The outgoing line from the water heater then runs to interior fixtures and faucets that dispense hot water. In addition to those lines, there should be a soft water bypass loop with a valve you can open to bypass the softener if you need to disconnect it temporarily without disturbing the water supply to the house.
Simply put, drains were designed to drain water – and water isn’t always the only thing going down. Granted, there’s not always much you can do to avoid this. There are certain things you can do proactively to lessen the chance of a clog. Before we explore those options though, let’s take a look at three types of drains and some common reasons why they clog.
Kitchen Sink Drains
Kitchen sinks put up with a lot of abuse. Think about it… they endure grease, food products, paper products, and just about everything in between. It’s not hard to imagine why all of that stuff might lead to a clog every once in a while, especially if your sink drain has a smaller diameter than average drain pipe.
Bathroom Sink Drains
Bathroom sinks don’t have to deal with as many types of debris, but they do have to deal with an entirely different mess: human hair. Human hair has this nasty habit of clinging to everything it comes in contact with, including inside sink drains. Length is almost irrelevant. Long or short, your drain will clog if there’s enough hair.
Bathroom Tub Drains
Bathroom tubs have to deal with a lot of hair as well. They are also susceptible to many different kinds of bar soaps. Believe it or not, a tiny chunk of bar soap can last quite a while in a drain, especially if it starts building up. Between hair and soap, which are akin to brick and mortar, tub drains can clog easily if you aren’t careful.
These are some of the most common reasons your drain might get clogged. Other reasons include accidently dropping a foreign object into the drain (jewelry, contact lens case, cell phone, etc.). In other cases, the clog might be caused by the shape, length, and diameter of the pipes themselves. The more sharp turns and bends there are, and the smaller diameter the pipe is, the likelier you will experience consistent clogging issues.
Stopping and fixing a leaky pipe, while two very different processes, can prevent damage to your home, your time, and your wallet by temporarily or permanently resolving the problem at hand.
Stopping the Leak (The Temporary Solution)
Upon discovering a leak, stopping the leak should be your first priority whether the plumbing project necessary to fix it is big or small. Stopping a leak with the following steps prevents further water damage, the waste of more money, and makes replacing the pipe in the future a much simpler process.
Fixing the Leak (The Permanent Solution)
While stopping a leak with the steps above is a great temporary fix for small leaks, time sensitive projects, and inexperienced individuals, it does not guarantee a permanent fix to your water leakage problem. This is due to the fact that usually when one leak is fixed, other leaks will spring up in other places because the whole section of pipe needs replaced due to corrosion. Because of this, we first recommend that you immediately contact a professional plumber after temporarily stopping a leak.
One of the most common–and most upsetting–plumbing problems you can have in your home is when something goes wrong with your toilet. Whether that’s your toilet overflowing, running continually or leaks around the seal at the base of your fixture, toilet repairs are not something that you can postpone.
Common toilet repair issues
- Toilet continues to run. When your toilet continues to run, it’s likely that your float, refill tube and/or ballcock need to be replaced.
- There is water pooling around the base of your toilet. Water collecting on the floor at the base of your toilet usually means that the seal is wearing out and needs to be replaced.
- Phantom flushes. Phantom flushes, when the toilet flushes seemingly by itself at random intervals, is usually a sign that there’s a slow leak between the tank and the toilet bowl.
- The water is slow to fill the bowl. A toilet bowl that is slow to refill is a sign that there is debris clogging the plumbing leading to the toilet bowl.
- The toilet is clogged. Serious clogs require an industrial-size auger to push the debris that’s clogging the pipe down into the larger sewer pipe.
Fixing your toilet quickly and reliably requires the skill and training of a professional plumber. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune or have your house torn up for an extended period of time.

Basically, when something is obstructing the flow of water inside your drainpipe, it causes the water to drain slower than usual. This creates air bubbles inside the main drain and that’s the gurgle you hear.
What causes a partial clog?
There are a number of things that cause a blockage inside your plumbing system: hair, dirt, food, and soap particles are a few of many.
If you suspect the clog is minor and you know what you’re doing, you could try removing the clog using a plunger the right way. If a good plunge does the trick, nice job!
If this does not fix the problem, you probably have a heavy clog that requires the knowledge and tools of a trusted plumbing professional.
Important warning: Do NOT pour commercial drain cleaners down your drain—these chemicals contain toxic fumes and can seriously damage your pipes. Plus they usually only remove enough of the clog to get your drain running—and then clog again later.
