Signs Your Tub or Shower Needs Repair

It's not always obvious when a bathroom fixture needs professional attention. However, knowing the signs can save you from future headaches and costly repairs. Watch out for these telltale indicators:

  • Persistent Leaks: Even small drips can lead to substantial water waste and higher utility bills.
  • Slow Draining: This often points to a clog deep within your plumbing system.
  • Cracks and Chips: Visible damage looks bad and can lead to large leaks and water damage over time.
  • Stains and Discoloration: These can be signs of mold growth or decaying fixtures.
  • Unusual Noises: Gurgling or popping sounds when water drains can indicate a blockage or vent issues.

Common Issues with Older Bathroom Fixtures

Older bathrooms can possess a certain charm, but they often come with their own set of plumbing challenges. The materials and technologies used in past decades may not meet today's standards for efficiency or safety. Common problems include:

  • Corroded Plumbing: Pipes made from galvanized steel or iron are prone to corrosion, which can lead to leaks and water quality issues.
  • Worn Out Fixtures: Faucets, showerheads, and taps that have seen better days may not function properly and often contribute to water leakage.
  • Inefficient Water Use: Older fixtures tend not to be water-efficient, which means more water use and higher bills.
  • Difficult-to-Find Replacement Parts: As fixtures age, manufacturers may discontinue certain models, making repairs more complex and expensive.

Preventing Mold and Mildew in Your Bathroom

Mold and mildew are unsightly and also pose health risks to you and your family. The bathroom's moist environment makes it a prime breeding ground for these fungi. Here’s how you can keep your bathroom mold-free:

  • Ensure Proper Ventilation: Use an exhaust fan during and after showers to help moisture escape.
  • Regular Cleaning: Frequent cleaning with mold-resistant products can keep spores at bay.
  • Fix Leaks Promptly: Moisture from leaks provides a perfect habitat for mold. Fixing leaks quickly reduces mold growth opportunities.
  • Use Mold-Resistant Materials: When it’s time for a repair or remodel, choose materials designed to resist moisture and mold.

The Benefits of Professional vs. DIY Repair

While the DIY approach can be tempting, especially with countless tutorials just a click away, the benefits of professional repair often outweigh the initial savings of a DIY fix:


Our kitchen drain was draining directly under the house creating a small lake of soap and mud. Several plumbers were called but all were a week or more out. We reached out to a lesser known company, Acknowledge Plumbing, and within a coupe of hours, we had a plumber on site and the problem resolved. It turns out some rodent(s) chewed through the coupling causing the discharge under the house. We are grateful to Acknowledge for their quick response, professional service, and friendly interaction.We are saving their number for any future plumbing problems that may arise. We were very satisfied with this company and highly recommend them to anyone with plumbing issues.

Felix came out to work on my reverse osmosis system. It turned out I need new system but he was thorough, explained everything in detail, and was reasonably priced. I've already teed him up for my next plumbing project. I highly recommend Felix and the Acknowledge Plumbing team.

Called Acknowledge Plumbing to fix an issue with my water pressure & piping. Steve came out the next day to provide a free estimate. He was very knowledgeable and provided some cost saving options to try before needing to do major work. Greatly appreciate the responsiveness & ability to act and respond in the best interest of the customer from this company. Definitely will give them a call for future plumbing needs.

We had an urgent need for help with our water heater on a holiday weekend (is was leaking and needed to be replaced). We were not optimistic that we would get anyone to answer a call, let alone make availability for a service call. Not only did Acknowledge Plumbing pick up the phone, but Savina was stellar in finding us a tech for the same day, and provided updates on her progress in near real time - this is highly unusual these days. Felix connected with us, discussed options for a new unit, procured it and arrived the same day. He was a pleasure to have so the work and got the whole project turned around that afternoon. They are at the top of our virtual Rolodex.
