Plumbing Maintenance Tips and Tricks

Plumbing Maintenance Tips and Tricks

When you consider the maintenance of your home, plumbing might not be the first thing that comes to mind. But, as many people learn the hard way, not staying on top of your plumbing needs can result in some pretty disastrous damage in your home. By not promptly addressing leaky pipes or clogged drains, your home is at risk for severe water damage, mold, burst pipes, and more.


Luckily, there are some plumbing maintenance tips and tricks that you can utilize before the damage has the chance to occur. For starters, it’s always a great idea to nip your clogged drains in the bud before they get worse. If you notice that the water in your sink, shower, or tub isn’t draining as quickly as it should, take the time to fish out whatever may be blocking it with a flexible-shaft pickup tool, or a Zip-It tool. Often times, a wet/dry vacuum hose can also do the trick.


Another nifty way to prevent plumbing issues is to stop leaks in their tracks. Over time, leaks can end up being a huge (and unnecessary) expense for homeowners. Instead of ignoring that annoying drip, take advantage of bathroom-specific tapes. Simply wrap the tape around the leaking area, and replace as necessary. With a quality plumbing tape, you shouldn’t have to replace the fitting often, if ever.


One of the most common calls that our plumbing contractors receive is to unclog kitchen drains. Even with garbage disposals, certain items should never find their way down the drain. Coffee grounds, bacon grease, and vegetable peelings are some of the worst culprits for clogged kitchen drains. Next time you find yourself with even just a handful of these ingredients, simply toss them into the trash instead of dumping them down your drain.
