some of the reasons why a washer leaks

If you have a puddle of water under your washing machine, first be sure it is not water or juice spill from your children or something else. after that you can make a full run of the washer as you normally do and see if the washer doesn’t leak at all. The following are some of the reasons why the washer might leak:

Be sure the washer drain plug is removed. if your washer is new then it comes with a drain plug that will need to be taken out before you connect a drain hose. incase you run a wash cycle and the plug is not removed, the washing machine will not drain correctly and water will end up on the floor.

When washing, be sure you are not adding excess HE detergent or adding the wrong detergent as this can cause excess suds and cause the washer to leak. Be sure you are using the correct HE washer detergent. Thus check your manufacturer’s manual to be sure you are using the amount as it recommends.

Be sure your washer is not overloaded with too much clothing or blankets, if overloaded the water may leak out. Always use the proper amount of clothing when washing and try not to overload.

Be sure your washer is completely level by adjusting the washer’s feet. use a level and place it on top of your washer to be sure. if the washer is not level, it can leak out water as washers are designed to be used on a fully flat surface. The washer legs are there so if your floor is not level you can level the washer easily.

Water supply hoses to your washer usually have a mesh screen filter where the water hose connects to the washer. if these are very dirty and blocked, these can cause water leakage. check the water hose mesh screen filter to be sure they are not clogged and causing a leak by not letting the water fully enter the washer.

Check and be sure the drain hose is 100% secure to drainpipe or standpipe. if lose it may leak and leave water on the floor or under the washing machine. Also, be sure the drain where the washing machine water flows out is not blocked or clogged

All in all, check your washer before use and let it stay on a flat surface when in use. incase you can’t operate it in case of a leakage call a service provider from HCMHUB APP OR Call the support team 0n 0701828873 Whatsapp/0777708899

FLOWER POTS.

Flower pots are sometimes regarded as planters or a plant pot which is a container in which flower pots have a number of uses such as plants to new locations, starting seeds, patio, and indoor. A taller and thinner shape of the pot is suitable for deep rooting plants. They are easy and fun to craft . In Africa, concentrating on Uganda, we majorly use clay pots which provide a healthy environment for most plants. The porosity of clay allows air and moisture to penetrate the sides of the pot. This moisture and air are utilized by the fine roots located at the edge of the soil ball. Clay pots also act as a wick to remove excess moisture from the potting soil.

WHY PAVING IS NECESSARY.

Pavers reduce moss growth, deter ants and other insects, prevent loss of sand in joints, go further to repel oil, grease, grime, and stains, make the cleaning routine easier, protect from effects of harsh weather conditions, and lastly inhibit weeds and grass in joints

Concrete pavers are individual pieces, they make the overall pattern more flexible and accommodating of fluctuations in the ground when dry set. Polymeric sand is a blend of sand and special additives designed to fill the joints between concrete pavers and brick pavers, it’s always necessary to seal your pavers such that they last longer, ward off stains, and maintain their beauty, if not, they will erode, weed will grow, mold or mildew builds up. Sweep your pavers with a broom, rinse off pavers with water, create a paver cleaning solution, apply paver sealer and replace your pavers in order to keep them elegant and clean at all times.

Concrete pavers carry more advantages than disadvantages, we find out that they fade in color overdue time since they are dyed with color pigment rather than natural clay and hence often need sealing. Pavers last 50 to 100 years or longer, they can easily be repaired or replaced. Sometimes you could face a problem of the sinking, this is caused by improper installation of the blocks.

Pavers placed in the sidewalk or driveway create beauty and enhance your compound to look more attractive. In the end, you get to feel the fresh breeze as you get to share memories of a lifetime with your loved ones.

PROBLEMS CAUSED BY DIRTY & CLOGGED RAIN GUTTERS

Rainwater gutters benefit your home in many ways and when they are not properly maintained, they will damage your home. Gutters control the flow of rainwater on your house by directing/diverting it away from your home to a place where you want it to be collected. The following are the things that make rainwater gutters dirty; bird droppings, trees, leaves, weed, grass, dirt & dust, soil making the gutters clogged in the long run because rainwater is prevented to flow through them.

Dirty and clogged rain gutters can result in the following problems

Structural/foundation damage. Clogged water on the gutters will flow down the walls of your home leading to foundation cracks and weakening the home foundation.

Pest infestations. Standing water on the gutters acts as a breeding place for mosquitoes, rats, ants, spiders, snakes, bees, wasps which may result in serious diseases.

Roof/wall/ceiling damages. Clogged gutters can cause roof leakage making water infiltrate your home.

Fascia boards(face board) damage. Water from the clogged gutter sits into the wood fascia board (face board) causing them to rot.

Mold growth. Mold loves to grow in moist, humid conditions which leads to health issues like asthma, coughing, allergies.

Gutter damage. Dirty gutters carry a lot of weight due to plants, trees, soil and if the water isn’t diverted, it collects and increases the weight on the gutters leading them to break.

Water supply disruption. Dirty and clogged rain gutters affect the supply of water at home because it just stands on the clogged gutter or overflowing sometimes.

It’s advisable to clean rainwater gutters twice a year but if you have trees, plants around, you may need to clean gutters often because they will get dirty at a fast rate.
