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

OUTCOMES OF POUFS

Poufs are versatile pieces of furniture that can tie your room together effortlessly. They are unique in that they are solid, yet soft, and therefore they can be used in a variety of different ways. Poufs can function as a chair, footrest, and additional tabletop. and more depending on where they are located.

You might as well just make it yourself. It can be filled with almost anything you have in your hands, polyester balls, plastic grocery bags, towels/sheets, or even old clothing. Polyester fiber can easily be found in most fabric stores, however, we think it’s better to use old clothing to fill up your pouf. It will make it heavy, plump, and comfortable!

#COMFORT WITH #ELEGANCE AND #CLASS.

You can decorate your pouf in front of a sofa or accent chairs. One or two are great when you want to prop up your feet. You can also use them in lieu of a table. Just a tray on top for an instant place to rest snacks and beverages. If your coffee or side table has room, simply slide the poufs underneath when not in use.

We have another known as the ottomans, these are almost always firmer and less pillowy, whereas some poufs are more like oversized pillows than anything else. Some ottomans have legs that raise them slightly while most poufs sit flat on the ground. Ottoman! You must be wondering why? The padded, low-lying upholstered chair, got its name from the Ottoman Empire that ruled Turkey in the 1700s.

#OTTOMAN POUFS #OTTOMAN EMPIRE.

The name Ottoman was derived from Osman, a bey (chieftain) from a tribe in western Turkey who declared independence from the Seljuk Turks.

You might ask yourself if poufs are still in style and the answer will be a YES, Moroccan poufs might be comfy but they are definitely a thing of the past in home interiors according to Korina Khamis from Hibou design. However, this trend has yet to develop a replacement which might be why poufs keep appearing.

If in case you’re looking for the best position to place your pouf, pick it up and use it as a footrest for any seat, they are lightweight and easy to move, so you can easily scoot it around your living space or even move it from room to room as needed.

#MOROCCOAN POUFS.

They are called poufs originally French with the word implying something puffed up. You can almost see a Gallic shrug. The Ottoman, on the other hand, originates as the name implies from Turkey and usually had a drawer for storage. Poufs are normally used as a focal point, they are comfortable to lounge on, going further to promote good posture and easy to blend in within your household, according to the color, texture, and fabric of your choice.

Plumbing Tips and Tricks

When the handyman is not around you need some tips to help you solve the plumbing most common problems in your household. To save money, time, headaches, and the bad odor of some plumbing problems follow some of our plumbing tips and tricks.

Use a bucket of water to flush the toilet

you don’t have to run to the neighbor’s bathroom during a plumbing project yet you already installed the toilet. Before you turn off the water supply, fill 2-gallon buckets with water. flush the toilet by dumping the water in the bowl. you will get one flush per bucket, which works just as well as the usual method although it won’t refill the bowl.

plunge water first before removing the trap

Before you remove a sink trap, give the drain a few plunges with a toilet plunger. This will push most of the water out of the trap lessening the mess when you pull the trap. if you have a double sink, be sure to plug the other drain to contain the air pressure. if the strainer isn’t a screw-down style, you’ll have to hold it down while you plunge the drain.

Drain vacuum

Use a shop vacuum to remove hard projects when a hard object like a toothbrush, comb, toys, and phones a plunger may not be the solution. it might only push the obstruction in deeper, instead suck out the water and the obstruction with wet/dry shop vacuum.

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.

We look for unrivaled beauty, easy upkeep, and long-term cost efficiency of properly executed paving stone installations, these have become more apparent and utilized by cost-efficient homeowners, they are natural paving materials that are produced without artificial additives.

Most of the times people pave because they want to protect, question is, what are they protecting? The grounds are oftentimes exposed to harsh weather which could lead to damage to the soil’s surface making it hard to repair. 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.
