Plumbing is a part of the home that we often take for granted. Plumbing problems are aggravating and can cause daily tasks to be very difficult. Fortunately, there are simple plumbing maintenance tips you can follow to ensure your plumbing in your Sun City, Arizona, home stays in tip-top shape.
Plumbing Tips for the Kitchen
A lot of people stuff food down a garbage disposal and then turn it on. Did you know this can clog the disposal? Any time you’re putting something in the garbage disposal, make sure to turn it on first. Make sure there is water running through the disposal when it’s turned on. After you’re finished, let cold water run through the disposal for at least 15 seconds to ensure the main line is properly flushed. This is a valuable plumbing tip that can help you save money.
Plumbing Tips for the Bathroom
Always use a screen cover over the drain in the shower. This prevents hair from making its way into your plumbing, which can lead to nasty clogs and costly repairs. You should also avoid flushing baby wipes and feminine products down the toilet. Even if it says it’s flushable, just toss it in the trash instead to be on the safe side. When unclogging a drain, make sure to call on the help of a professional plumber and avoid using chemical products.
Sump Pump Maintenance
If you have a sump pump, you’ll need to clean the area around it before the cold weather sets in. Don’t want to clean it or don’t know what you’re doing? A professional plumber can take care of that for you. We can can also perform other plumbing preventative maintenance.
