Maintaining your plumbing system is vital for extending the life of your system and avoiding unnecessary damages. A professional plumber cannot be replaced when it comes to making necessary repairs and maintenance, but there are a few plumbing tips you should keep in mind.
Here are some of our top plumbing tips:
- Don’t use your toilet as a trash can. Your toilet is designed to handle waste and toilet paper. Anything else can clog and damage your toilet, so leave the cotton swabs, feminine products, paper towels, wet wipes, and other items for your trash can.
- Pay attention to signs that something is wrong. Leaks and frequent clogs are not normal and shouldn’t be ignored. Oftentimes, these signs point to something larger going on within your plumbing system, so ignoring them can lead to worsening problems. If you notice anything strange going on with your plumbing system, it’s important to reach out to a professional plumber.
- Be careful with what you put down your garbage disposal. Your garbage disposal is great, but it can only handle so much. Large pieces of food and grease should be disposed of elsewhere. When these items go down your garbage disposal, you risk damaging the blades or causing clogs.
