Plumbing Tips That Can Save You A Fortune

Plumbing issues can occur at any time. Be it a do-it-yourself repair or just general preventative maintenance, we need plumbing advice. The ideas here in this article should give you both of these things so you’re prepared to deal with plumbing issues that come up.

Frozen pipes are on of the worst plumbing problems. Prevent the pipes from freezing by insulating any sections of pipe that are close to the outside walls, and never allowing the temperature inside to be below freezing. But, be advised that your pipes may freeze if the surrounding temperature near those pipes is less than freezing. If you are lucky, you will only experience a minor inconvenience until the pipes thaw. The worst case scenario is a busted pipe and a costly repair.

Never pay a plumber until the job is complete. Although you might be required to pay a down payment before the job is initiated, never pay the bill in full until you are certain that the job is completed to your satisfaction. You will feel better paying the bill when you are completely satisfied with the job.

You don’t want to end up with frozen pipes, so take preventive action, such as wrapping outside pipes with insulation, and keeping indoor temperatures above freezing at all times. The pipes will be able to freeze if the temperature surrounding the pipes drops below freezing. It will take a while for the pipes to thaw, leaving you without running water. The worst case would be that they burst, creating water damage and a big repair bill.

Know your plumbing tools and exactly how to use them before you start on any plumbing repair. Read all of the equipment’s manuals and read up as much as you can on plumbing projects. Before attempting any repairs, plan ahead, or you may make a costly mistake.

Don’t use bleach tablets, odor removers or those blue tablets in your toilet. While they may be effective deodorizers, they can damage rubber parts in your toilet. If they become too damaged, your toilet will not operate properly.

If your toilet gets clogged, your plunger is not fixing it, and your water level inside of the toilet appears low, you can sometimes fix the problem by dumping warm water into your toilet at waist level (or maybe even a little higher). Once the water level gets low again, repeat the process.

Your septic tank should be pumped out at least once every five years if you want it to stay in optimum working order. Regular maintenance will keep sediment from backing up inside of the tank. Sediment can not only cause the sewage in the tank to back up into your house, but it can cause the tank to fail completely. While you may find it costly to get your septic tank cleaned out, the cost is much higher to have sewage and backups cleaned up and your septic tank repaired or replaced.

Don’t pour oils, grease or fat down the drain. As they cool off, they can solidify and effectively create clogs and blockages in your drains. This is especially damaging to garbage disposals because the fat can make the blades turn more slowly and less efficiently. Throw away oils nowhere near the sink.

Clean your garbage disposal regularly to prolong the life of your disposal. By utilizing a routine on a regular basis, using the combination of lemon rinds, cherry pits, and dish soap, you can maintain a disposal that runs great and smells like new.

Overflow Holes

Knowing which tools to use and how to operate them is essential to any aspiring plumber. Read all of the equipment’s manuals and read up as much as you can on plumbing projects. When planning on repairs, plan on having a plan.

Check overflow holes to make sure there’s no clog. Overflow holes divert water when a sink starts to fill up. That doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it can be a big problem if there is a clog. Clear the overflow holes periodically when you are doing your periodic checks for other problems and things that need to be repaired.

Install low flush toilets and energy efficient shower heads and faucets to reduce your utility bills. Most of your water bills comes from the water you use to shower. A single energy efficient shower head can save you $100 a year.

Choose enzyme based cleaners if your pipes get clogged. These cleaners turn the sludge into a liquid using natural bacteria, and then the liquid flows out of the pipes. Cleaners containing enzymes are some of the best you can buy.

Don’t be tempted to use commercial bleach tablets, blue toilet tablets or any other product that claims to prevent toilet odor. While these tablets may be an easy way to clean your toilet and hide odors, they also contain chemicals that can break down the rubber fixtures in your toilet. Long-term use of these products can slow or even stop the functioning of your toilet.

Study plumbing while your system is working perfectly so that you’ll be ready if it develops a problem. Also, keeping your system maintained properly will help you avoid future disasters. Heed our tips, and you’ll have what you need to solve your plumbing problems.
