As a Lafayette plumbing company, we often talk about how great water is, for drinking, bathing, cooking, swimming, and so forth. We talk about water conservation and about how to doll up the water in your home with the latest, shiniest faucets, sinks, and toilets. What we don’t usually talk about are the days that water can be a real pain in your you-know-what. Well today, we’re laying it out for you—here are five ways that water can make you so mad you’ll want to send it back to its cloud without supper.

Water can ruin your day by:

Flooding Your Basement – The horror of walking down the steps and finding your basement flooded is unmatched by any scary movie we’ve ever seen. Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it’s still doing its job.

Ruining Your Wallpaper – The moist steam from your shower will terrorize your wallpaper, leaving it a bubbly, wrinkly eyesore. When it’s time for bathroom remodeling, choose vinyl wallpaper, if any, to avoid this annoying problem.

Overflowing Your Toilet – The toilet is a receptacle. Things should go in, never out. So naturally it’s disturbing when a toilet overflows. If your toilet is a notorious day-ruiner, it may be time for new toilet installation.

Freezing Your Pipes – Water damages caused by frozen pipes can cost in the thousands of dollars to repair. Do you know what to do in the case of a plumbing emergency such as this? Click here to find out. 

Leaving an Ugly Mark on Your End Table – Sure you can use a coaster to prevent this monstrosity, but if you don’t, water is sure to punish you with an ugly ring from your glass of lemonade!
