Top Three Plumbing Tips From a Professional Plumber

Let the Expert Deal With Your Plumbing Problems

Plumbing is important in every property. However, we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it or worrying about maintaining it. But when it suddenly stops working properly, or we run into a problem, do we notice? It’s absolutely no fun to deal with plumbing problems. That’s why your professional plumber made this list of top plumbing tips that will help prevent some of your biggest pet peeves when it comes to your pipes.

Use A Strainer

Clogs are one of the most common plumbing problems, and when it comes to a shower or sink drain, they can become gross and messy thanks to hair and soap residue. Avoiding the icky is as simple as using a basket strainer. This will help prevent a time-consuming and unpleasant task in the future.

Don’t Pour Grease or Oil Down the Drain

Have you ever heard people talk about eating food to get a ‘grease coat’, or fill themselves up? The same thing happens when you eat greasy food and when you dump grease or oil down the drain. The grease and oil will build up. You won’t notice it at first – you’ll think it’s totally fine, and that as a liquid, down the sink is where it should go. But little by little that grease and oil will clog your pipes and leave you with some serious plumbing problems.

Make Sure Your Main Sewer Drain Is Accessible

While your plumbing is normally out of sight, your main sewer drain must be always free and clear. This is because, in case of a sewage line blockage, we need to be able to move quickly and efficiently. Your drain access point should be uncovered (that means no rugs or carpeting) and easy to get to – no maze of holiday decorations or old children’s toys to contend with.
