Thread: bathroom problems

  1. #1

    Default bathroom problems

    I recently replaced a t-joint on my water line outside. Everything is fine except that in one bathroom, the sink isn,t getting any water and the toilet isn,t getting anywater.the shower in there is fine and so is the rest of the house.There was a lot of rust running out of the other faucets and orange water. Could there be debris in my sink and toilets water inlet filters? I ran out of time and have not checked them. My house is old and has rust colored water sometimes,also there is always water breaks in my neighborhood.
    thanks

    Was that T on galvanized steel pipe? In the process of removal, you probaby broke loose a bunch of rust. Try taking the areators off of the faucets and the screen in the showerhead and you might be back to "normal". You'll be needing to budget for a repipe in the future - that would get rid of the rusty water and restore flow.
