What You Should Do to Take Care of Your Plumbing

Here are some things that you should do to take care of your home’s plumbing system:

  1. Avoid Chemical Drain Cleaners

The number one thing that you should do to take care of your home is to avoid chemical drain cleaners like the plague. Over-the-counter drain cleaners might be the quick and seemingly simplest fix, but what seems quick and simple now might lead to bigger problems down the line. 

This is because chemical drain cleaners might get rid of a clog now, but they’re so caustic that they might start eating away at your home’s plumbing system. It’s just not a smart idea. Professional service is always the best option.

  1. Treat Hard Water

Hard water is water that has high levels of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals in it. If you’re struggling with hard water, don’t think that it’s something you can just learn to live with. It might not bother you, but it’s definitely going to bother your plumbing system. The sediment buildup in your system will narrow the pathway that your water has to flow through, reduce your water pressure, and hurt your home.

  1. Know What Clogs Your Home

The best thing that you can do for your home is to know what clogs your space and figure out how to prevent it before it’s too late. Make sure that you’re not letting things like the following down the drains:

  • F.O.G. (fat, oil, and grease)
  • Eggshells
  • Coffee grounds
  • Cotton balls, paper towels, or wet wipes

When in doubt, just put something in the trash rather than putting it down your drain.

  1. Prevent Disaster

When you spot a leak, make sure that you talk to a professional as soon as possible. This can help prevent disaster in your home. Water pressure issues and leaks can quickly become huge issues. Have one of our team members help as soon as possible. 

  1. Don’t Wait!

When you spot a problem, make sure that you’re not procrastinating when it comes to taking care of it. Waiting only allows the plumbing problem you’re having to fester and become a much bigger issue. We know that you might think that you can wait something out and maybe even handle the problem on your own, but it’s not something that we suggest.
