Initially, try using a plunger to clear the blockage. If that doesn’t work, it’s best to call an emergency plumber to avoid further issues.
Regularly inspect your pipes, insulate them properly, and maintain a steady temperature inside your property to prevent pipes from freezing and bursting.
Leaks and flooding may be due to worn-out washers, seals, or O-rings, or high water pressure. It’s best to contact a professional plumber for repair.
Clean the showerhead to remove mineral deposits or replace it with a high-pressure showerhead. If these steps don’t work, contact a plumber for assistance.
