Fixing a Leaky Faucet ๐Ÿ’ง

A leaky faucet can be an annoying problem, especially when itโ€™s wasting gallons of water and increasing your water bill ๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿšจ. The good news is that fixing a leaky faucet is a simple DIY task that requires only some basic tools. First, you need to turn off the water supply to the faucet, then disassemble the faucet and replace any damaged parts, such as the washers or O-rings.

Unclogging a Drain ๐ŸŒŠ

A clogged drain is a common household problem that can cause unpleasant smells and even some serious plumbing issues. Instead of calling a plumber, you can try to unclog the drain yourself using a plunger or a drain snake. To use a plunger, cover the drain with the plunger and apply pressure up and down several times until the clog is removed. If that doesnโ€™t work, try using a drain snake, which can be inserted into the drain to dislodge the clog.

Replacing a Refrigerator Light Bulb ๐Ÿ’ก

Have you ever had trouble seeing the contents of your fridge because the light bulb was out? Avoid calling a repairman and replace it yourself! First, unplug the fridge and remove the old bulb by twisting it counterclockwise. Then replace it with a new bulb that meets the specifications of your refrigerator. Finally, plug the fridge back in and enjoy the light inside your fridge once again.

Cleaning a Dirty Air Conditioner Filter โ„๏ธ

A dirty air conditioner filter can cause your AC system to work harder, leading to higher energy bills and potentially harming the system. So itโ€™s important to clean it regularly! First, locate the filter and remove it from the AC unit. Then use a vacuum cleaner or a brush to remove any debris and dust from the filter. Finally, rinse the filter with water and let it dry completely before putting it back into the AC unit.

Fixing a Running Toilet ๐Ÿšฝ

A running toilet is not only annoying but can also waste large amounts of water and money ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ. The most common cause of a running toilet is a faulty flapper valve, which can be replaced easily. Shut off the water supply to the toilet and drain the water from the tank. Then remove the old flapper valve and replace it with a new one of the same size. Turn the water supply back on and test the toilet to make sure it no longer runs unnecessarily.
