3 Plumbing Tips From a Plumbing Repair Expert for Preventing Plumbing Problems

Preventing Your Biggest Peet Peves for Your Plumbing

For the majority of us, plumbing is just sort of there. We don’t give it much thought or concern when it comes to upkeep. But boy, do we notice when it abruptly stops functioning correctly or when we have a problem! Dealing with plumbing issues is a complete drag. Here are 3 plumbing tips from a plumbing repair expert that will help you prevent some of your problems when it comes to your pipes.

Know Where Your Main Water Valve Is

It’s still important to understand where your main water valve is and what to do if there is a problem even if you don’t actively study plumbing. If your pipes burst, turning off your main water valve will help minimize the damage until we can arrive to offer assistance. If you don’t know where it is, you’ll be running about causing major water harm to your home.

Make Sure Your Main Drain Is Accessible

Although much of your plumbing is out of sight, it’s critical that your main sewage drain is always open and unimpeded. This is because, in the case of a sewer line clog, we must be able to react quickly and efficiently. Your drain access point should be easy to access, visible (i.e., not hidden by rugs or carpeting), and clear of obstructions like Christmas decorations or old children’s toys.

Watch What You Flush

There are certain items that may and should be flushed, and others that should never be flushed. We believe you understand what we mean. We’re going to assume that you don’t want to deal with any major obstructions brought on by flushing things down the toilet except toilet paper and human waste. Cotton balls, prescription medications, personal care products, and yes, sad fish are all included.
