5 Easy DIY Bathroom Repairs

You don't always have to call in a professional. Here are 5 DIY repairs and projects that you can handle yourself.


Unclog a drain:

A clogged sink or shower drain can usually be cleared with a few simple tools like a plunger or a drain snake. For minor clogs, the plunger is often effective. For tougher clogs, a drain snake can help clear the blockage deeper down the pipe.


Replace caulking:

Remove and replace old, dried out caulking around bathtubs, and faucets. Not only will fresh caulk prevent water leakage and damage, it’s also a fairly simple undertaking – and it makes your tub look so much better! There are plenty of tutorials with step-by-step instructions that will have you caulking like a pro in no time.


Fix a running toilet:

A running toilet can waste a lot of water and is often caused by a faulty flapper valve or a problem with the float mechanism. Open the toilet tank and inspect these components. Adjust or replace the flapper valve or adjust the float to stop the running water.


Unstop a toilet:

If your toilet isn't flushing, you can usually repair it yourself by adjusting or replacing the chain and flapper in the tank. Got a stubborn clog? Loosen it up by pouring in some dish soap and letting it soak before using your plunger.

Bonus Project: Bidet toilet seat attachments are a convenient and increasingly popular option for enhancing bathroom hygiene and comfort at home. They are straightforward to install and use, providing a customizable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional toilet paper.


These projects typically require basic tools and a bit of patience. Always prioritize safety, follow instructions carefully, and don't hesitate to seek professional help if you're unsure about anything involving electrical or plumbing systems.
