Get The Most Out Of Your Plumbing With These Tips!
There isn’t a residential or commercial property that can survive without efficient plumbing. A well-functioning plumbing system can save you from unexpected issues, such as clogged drains, leaky pipes, faulty faucets, and more. And the secret to a robust, lasting plumbing system lies in its maintenance.
Taking care of your home or office plumbing is more important than you think. It can help you save thousands of dollars on costly repairs and extend the lifespan of plumbing components.
If you’re seeking easy, hassle-free ways to maintain your bathroom plumbing, here is everything you need to know:
Keep an eye on drains
Be it sink, shower or tub, drains are a critical plumbing component. Slow, clogged or dirty drains are a nuisance.
As a rule, keep bathroom and kitchen drains clean. To minimize the chance of drains, don’t dispose hair strands, food items, feminine hygiene products, small pieces of paper or tissue, as well as soap and oil down the drain.
A simple cleaning method is to pour hot water and vinegar down bathroom and kitchen drains. Similarly, use sink traps to prevent hair and soap buildup.
Look out for leaks
Water leaks can be messy and inconvenient. Check all appliances (heater, refrigerator, washing machine, etc.) and exposed pipes for leaks. Maintain each appliance according to manufacturer’s requirements. Also, install a drip tray under your water heater to minimize damage (if a leak occurred).
Fix old, outdated fixtures
Inspect all faucets and fixtures regularly. If you have old, damaged fixtures and faucets, replace them immediately.
Besides water wastage, leaking faucets will add to your bill.
Inspect water heater and septic tank
Is your water heater running smoothly? Check heater pressure and temperature throughout the year. A pressure gauge can help you assess heater pressure. In addition, install a pressure regulator to maintain a safe pressure level.
Do not ignore septic tank inspection. Make sure you inspect and pump it at least every three years.
With proper care and maintenance, your water heating system and septic tank can last for many years.
