5 Tips for Keeping Your Home's Plumbing in Great Shape


When there are problems with your plumbing, your comfy home can suddenly turn into a frustrating mess. This makes it important to take certain preventative measures that will decrease the chances of plumbing issues developing. Here are five simple tips to prevent major plumbing problems.

Fix Dripping Faucets/Showerheads ASAP

Even if your sink has just a slight drip, you'll still want to fix it. This small problem could soon worsen and pose a risk of water damage. When your sink has a drip, you'll want to look under it to see if any staining has occurred.

Regularly Drain Water Heater

It's best to drain your water heater twice per year so that sediment is eliminated. This will help to ensure that your water heater continues working with strong efficiency.

Fix Slow Drains

Mild clogs should always be fixed quickly so that the slow draining doesn't worsen to the point that water won't drain at all. Vinegar mixed with hot water can sometimes help with remedying slow draining. But if the slow draining is stubborn and you can't promptly take care of it yourself, then it'll be worth calling in a plumber who can fix it in little time.

Careful about what You Flush

You'll want to make sure that all family members---especially young children---know that only human waste and toilet paper can go down the toilet. Any other objects that go down could cause significant problems with pipes. Also, you'll want to be sure that no one in your family is putting reactive substances in the toilet.

Look Out for Evidence of Water Leaks

It's important to take action as soon as you notice a sign of a water leak. This will minimize the risk of serious water damage occurring. A water leak could be present if you've noticed the sound of running water while the water should be off. Other indications include water stains, as well as higher water bills. To thoroughly address water leaks, it's best to have an experienced plumber do the work.
