Common Bathtub Problems & How to Fix Them

Jan 31, 2023

The bathtub is one of the most used fixtures within the home, so ensuring that yours is in good working condition is important. That means knowing how to identify certain common problems, as well as knowing how to fix them. So, let’s discuss a few of the common bathtub issues you should look out for:

1. A Leaky Faucet

Is there a slight dripping sound coming from your bathtub faucet? While this problem is common, it’s one you should find a solution for as soon as possible to prevent water waste and a higher-than-normal water bill.

To fix a leaky bathtub faucet, you’ll need to first locate the cause. Most often, the cause is related to old rubber washers that have dried out. If this is the case, you should be able to purchase replacements. If this is not the cause of your leak, however, you may need call in a plumber or replace the entire faucet.

2. A Drain Leak

There is another type of leak that is considered a common problem with bathtubs, this one being a drain leak. While many drain leaks require a professional plumber’s help to fix, some instances of this common problem with old bathtubs is to apply plumber’s putty to the area where the drain rests. However, before opting to go the DIY route, ensuring that no water damage has occurred is key to make this a drain leak fix rather than a patch that will lead to bigger issues down the road.

3. Low Water Pressure

Dealing with low water pressure is less than ideal, but the issue can typically be diagnosed by checking if the pressure remains low when you switch from cold to hot water. If this is the case, the problem probably lies with your faucet aerator. Most cases of low water pressure relate to the buildup of mineral deposits in the aerator or the faucet cartridge.

Fortunately, this issue can be fixed by removing the aerator and soaking it in vinegar overnight to remove the mineral buildup. If doing so still does not solve the problem, you may need to call a plumber and have them check the water pressure at the water meter itself.

4. Mold

Sometimes, mold can find its way into a bathtub no matter how hard you try to keep it clean. This is because mold forms due to moisture, which is commonly present in bathrooms—especially if yours is poorly ventilated, has leaky pipes, or if rugs and other cellulose materials remain damp.

Potential fixes for mold around your bathtub include cleaning it with mold-killing products, as well as replacing any moldy caulking or sealant. If neither of these work for the long run, you may want to consider investing in a replacement bathtub that is built from non-porous acrylic, which is less susceptible to the growth of mold and mildew.
