Top 5 Household Plumbing Maintenance Tips

If you have a plumbing emergency, you’re going to need to call in a plumber as soon as possible. But chances are, your problem is one of two things: either a leaking pipe or a clogged drain. And in many cases, emergency plumbing services can be avoided with good maintenance.

Here’s what you should know:

1 Watch what you flush

Aside from the proverbial Numbers 1 and 2, the only thing that can safely be flushed down the toilet is toilet paper. No tissues, paper towels, feminine products, foods, pills, bones, animal fats or cooking oils should ever be flushed down the toilet. The same goes for so-called « Sanitary » wipes or baby wipes – even the ones advertised as flushable. They may cause clogs in drains, sewer systems and treatment stations.

2 Be careful with chemical drain cleaners

Liquid drain cleaners can be an effective quick solution to clear a clogged drain, but they should be used carefully and sparingly. Many of these products contain caustic chemicals designed to burn the obstruction away; however, they can also damage the drain pipes if used improperly or if the chemical fails to destroy the clog. Generally, plumbers prefer to use physical instruments, such as a drain snake, to remove clogs.

3 Cover your drains

Drains don’t generally take well to solid objects, big or small. The simplest solution to this is to purchase some drain strainers, which are inexpensive and available in a variety of sizes and styles from The Home Depot. Use them to cover the drains in your sinks, bathtubs and showers, so they can collect things like hair, dirt or food waste. Keeping garbage out of your drains means you’re far less likely to experience a blockage.

4 Garburators are not trash compactors

Don’t overestimate the cababilities of your garburator. While it does help break your food waste down into smaller pieces, you’re still sending food down your drain. So don’t overwhelm your garburator by stuffing entire platefuls into it, and avoid using it to process items such as bones, cheees or even fruit or vegetable peels. Otherwise, you could wind up having to call a plumber to dismantle your drain pipes and garburator to clear everything out.

5 Know your DIY limits

Practicing good maintenance can keep the plumber away. Things like plunging a toilet or replacing or a sink faucet cartridge can often be done without much expertise. But if you need a plumber, call one. . With more severe clogs that require disconnecting drain plumbing and/or physically removing debris, or stopping leaks that can easily become floods with the wrong approach, you need to know when to call in a pro. Attempting a plumbing repair job without the requisite expertise can easily make things worse, not to mention more expensive.
