A sink that will not drain, a pipe that makes noise, and a toilet that’s backed up are all signs that something is wrong with the pipes in your home. At this point you might have no choice but to call a professional and have it taken care of. It can be expensive but ultimately you will have little or no choice. Did you know there are things that you can do to take care of many of the plumbing problems in your home without calling a plumber?
The first way to counteract plumbing problems is to stop them before they start. So how do you do that, by being careful? You should know what you put down your sink. If you have garbage disposal use it when you are emptying your plate after each meal. Run water down the disposal while you have it on so that the broken up food particles are pushed out. Allow the water to run a minute or so after you’ve shut off the disposal to ensure everything is flushed out. Don’t put items such as potato peels, banana peels, or bone down your disposal. This could damage the disposal and will most certainly clog your pipes.
When you are cooking, keep an empty can by the sink. This can be a soup can or a coffee can. If you choose a coffee can be sure it’s one of the metal ones, the new plastic containers won’t work. If you have something that has grease that has to be drained don’t pour it down the sink. This can cause plumbing issues as the grease hardens. Instead pour the grease into the can. Once the grease has cooled simply throw the can in the trash. This will help keep your pipes clear of gunk. If you don’t have a can available or have spilt some grease down the drain be sure to run a lot of hot water down that drain to ensure the grease is flushed out.
When it comes to your toilet the best way to avoid plumbing problems is to use only flushable items. Toilet paper and flushable wipes are designed to breakdown in water. This will keep you from clogging the toilet. Also if you have small children you might want to invest in a toilet lock. It might make potty training a little more difficult but it will keep them from flushing toys, jewelry, keys or other objects down the drain. Not only will those items clog up the system but some of them might be valuable and not something that you’ll want to lose.
