Tips by a Plumbing Contractor on How to Properly Maintain Your Plumbing System
Welcome to the blog space of Larry Downs Jr Plumbing LLC – a well-known expert plumbing contractor in West Pensacola, FL. We would like to introduce you to the most useful page on our website. This is the spot where you can read all types of funny and educative articles dedicated to plumbing and share your opinion about the topics we have discussed by commenting on them. As we would like to start with a topic which is useful for you, the homeowners, we will dedicate our first two blogs to a homeowner’s plumbing responsibilities.
Owning a home means owning up to your responsibilities. Although homeowners’ insurance policies vary in details, some interior plumbing and drain problems are not covered. Luckily, you can take preventative measures. Here are some simple tips to follow if you want to keep things operational, along with quick fixes when plumbing issues arise.
- Do everything possible to unclog your drains regularly – Drains are getting clogged on a daily basis, especially in our kitchen, where we spend most of our time when we are at home. Kitchen drains won’t clog if you throw away all the food leftovers which your sink collects. Bathroom drains won’t clog if you gather all the hair and soap buildup from the sink and shower drains. Use a biodegradable grease treatment once a month to help keep your drains clear.
- Fix leaks – Leaks can lead to frantic moments for homeowners. Even a small leak can mean gallons of water on your carpet and floor. Always be on the lookout for signs of wear, bulging around pipe fittings and leakage in any of the lines or pipes. While you are on vacation, you can attach wireless sensors, which can detect leaks and shut water off automatically.
