Fix small problems yourself

Fix small problems yourself

With a little physical effort and some knowledge, you can fix small failures yourself, before they turn into an accident that will cost you dearly.

 Washing machine leaves water

If you ignore this malfunction, you might have a flood.

Make sure that the water hose is connected to the back of the machine – the water is most likely coming from a small crack in the tire. If so, replace the incorrect hose immediately. Turn off the water supply (to avoid the flood) and buy a new hose. Unscrew the old one and fasten the new one and tighten it with the key.

 Mold on the walls

If you ignore this phenomenon, you may experience allergies and other health problems.

Pour a cup of bleach into the hot water bucket. Thoroughly rub the problem area and rinse with clean water. When it dries, paint the wall (if the problem is higher, consult with an expert).

 Leaking water from the toilet

Lift the lid and look inside the cistern. If water enters the upright, you need to lower the water level in the boiler. To do this, simply push your hand downward. For newer cistern models, press the adjusting lever and lower the water level. If there is no problem in the level of water in the cistern, pour in a little edible color and wait 20 minutes. Changing the color will indicate whether the rubber seal on the bottom of the cistern should be replaced. Close the water supply behind the toilet bowl and remove the seal. Buy a new one and place it in the place where it was old.

 Cracks in the yard

If you ignore them, they will be getting bigger and more difficult to repair. If they are near the house, they can pull moisture into the foundations.

Remove any loose parts with a strong jet of water. Fill the cracked parts up with the asphalt and allow it to dry well. If the cracks are deep, fill them with sand. Then apply the asphalt for a quarter of an inch.
