Maintaining Your Home Plumbing System
Plumbing systems are sometimes overlooked but some pretty basic maintenance can help you from experiencing more serious issues down the road. Start by understanding what you should and shouldn’t do to your home plumbing system. Try to avoid chemical drain declogging solutions that can warp and destroy your plumbing system. Also be sure to monitor what you put down your drains. Avoid putting large food chunks or dropping oil into your drain. Don’t put other powerful or potentially clogging materials down the drain either. Instead, use drain shields to prevent serious debris from blocking your drains.
Outside your home, you should understand the impact that vegetation can have on clogging your drains and avoid plants in your garden that have extensive root systems. Instead, plant items that are less likely to damage your drains.
Hire a plumber to perform a home inspection and ask for recommendations for improving your system. Many simple solutions can often go a long way such as keeping a toilet plunger and drain auger at hand to handle simple clogs and a plumber’s number handy for serious issues. Make sure they offer emergency services for the best treatment
