Tips From Plumbers to Prevent Plumbing Problems

February 17th, 2017

Plumbing problems are terrible to deal with. It takes time, patience, and money to restore things to normal working order. The best line of defense against plumbing problems is prevention. Avoiding plumbing problems by preventing them in the first place will help save you money, time, and stress. Here are some tips plumbers wish their customers knew about preventing plumbing problems.

#1 Drains are Not Trashcans

A clogged drain is one of the most common plumbing problems out there. Most clogged drains are preventable.  One of the leading causes of a clogged drain, is improper usage of drains, or treating drains like trashcans. The truth of the matter is that drains are meant to dispose of waste water and that’s about it. When other items like trash make it into the drain they can get stuck and form obstructions that prevent the proper flow of water. When it comes to preventing plumbing problems, one of the best things you can do is to watch what goes down the drain. Never put trash, grease, chemicals, paint, plastic, glass, large food particles, or hair down the drain.

#2 Liquid Drain Cleaner

When it comes to clogged drains, many are quick to reach for the liquid drain cleaner. Unfortunately, liquid drain cleaner usually does not resolve the problem. While it may temporarily clear a drain, usually the problem will resurface. When it comes to a clogged rain, proper drain cleaning done by a professional is your best bet. Not only will professional drain cleaning alleviate the clogged drain, but also help protect your plumbing system and your health from the harmful chemicals in liquid drain cleaning. If your drains are prone to clogging, one of the best things you can do for your drains is regular drain cleaning

#3 DIY

While some things it may be a good idea to DIY, other things like a major plumbing repair you might want to leave to the professionals. A botched DIY attempts could end up

causing more damage and cost more money to fix. To protect your home from and even bigger plumbing problem, please call a professional. You really aren’t saving any money by failing at a DIY attempt.

#4 Garbage Disposal

Aside from watching what goes down the drain you should also make sure you are not overworking your garbage disposal by putting too much in it. Garbage disposals are designed to chop of waste particles into smaller bits so that they don’t cause clogs, however garbage disposals have their limits. Avoid putting things that don’t go down the drain in your garbage disposal, and always run small loads with running water to prevent plumbing problems.

#5 Pay Attention to the Age of Your Water Heater

Not knowing the age of your water heater can set you up for disaster when you least expect it. Traditional tank storage water heaters are designed to last around 10 years, give or take a little. What this means is that if you don’t know how old your water heater is you could be unknowingly reaching the end of your water heaters lifespan. When a water heater goes out it could cause all kinds of plumbing problems; flooding, leaks, discolored water… It is important to prepare yourself mentally, physically, and financially for when you water heater goes out, as replacing your water heater can be a costly event.

Chilling Sounds Your Plumbing Might Make that Mean You Have a Plumbing Problem

October 31st, 2016

Major plumbing problems can be scary, especially when you are caught off guard or in the middle of entertaining. They always seem to pick the opportune time to strike, when you least expect it. However, sometimes plumbing problems comes with tale tell signs, or more so sounds. Sounds that can make you wonder…do you have a major plumbing problem or is your house haunted. Here are three common chilling sounds that your plumbing might make to alert you that you have a plumbing problem on the rise.

 

Screeching

We Know Your Dreams, https://goo.gl/hjkCAo, 10-31-2016

Is that a witch screeching in the distance? Nope just the screeching sound of your faucet opening. A screeching faucet is fortunately an easy and relatively inexpensive plumbing problem to fix. Over time some of the components inside the faucet can wear out. The inner parts can be replaced individually; however, it may be more affordable in the long run to replace the faucet entirely. This will not only ensure that you have a working faucet free of a witch’s blood curdling screech, but also a more efficient faucet that utilizes less water and modernizes the space.

 

Hissing

A hissing sound coming out of the dark bathroom is something nightmares are made of. While it may

sound like a giant snake has taken up residence in the bathroom, this is another rather simple plumbing problem to fix. Just like with faucets, the mechanisms inside a toilet break down overtime as well. When a toilet makes a hissing sound or flushes on its own, also known as phantom flushes, the fill valve or the flapper is often faulty.  A broken fill valve or flapper can cause a slow leak into the bowl, causing the tank to consistently fill up and empty once it reaches its limit. This not only leads to scary sounds in the night but also wastes a lot of water. Fortunately, this is an easy plumbing problem to repair by replacing the faulty components.

 

Banging

Paranormics, https://goo.gl/EBdQh3, 1031/2016

Banging or rattling pipes may be a sign that a gang of ghosts is haunting the house. While this may be the case more than likely it is a result of a sudden change in water pressure slamming. If the pipes fittings are loose this can cause the banging. A pressure limiting valve may need to be installed and the pipe fittings should be adjusted so they don’t bang around. Pipes that rattle or bang aren’t only bad for sound effects but the rattling and banging around can also cause damage to the pipes, leading to more serious plumbing problems if left unchecked.

 

If spooky plumbing sounds have you down? Then it may be time to call a professional plumber. Check out our local directory of plumber to find a plumber near you!

August 29th, 2016

Visit My Smokies, http://goo.gl/F9mZz5, 08/29/2016

With Labor Day weekend fast approaching and the children going back to school, Fall is only eminent. You may have already began to notice the weather starting to change, the leaves starting to turn deep hues of orange, red, and brown, or the lighting getting softer in the latter afternoon. Fall is just around the corner and so is cooler weather and family get togethers. This is the perfect time of year to perform some routine maintenance on your heating and plumbing system. Its just before heavy usage and all the craziness associated with the holidays. Preventative maintenance is the best way to prevent a disaster from striking, especially when you need your heating and plumbing system the most. Here we bring your the Fall heating and plumbing checklist.

 

Heating System

With summer coming to a close, its always a good idea to have you heater system inspected before the temperatures drop and you need it most. A well maintained heating system will last longer, run more efficiently, and

routine maintenance

SENIOR GADGETS, GIZMOS AND HOBBY AIDS, http://goo.gl/nTwNR6, 08/29/2016

will have less of a chance of breaking down. You don’t want to be caught in the middle of a winter storm with a broken heater, so get a head of the crowds and have your heating system inspected early. A thorough inspection of your heating system will include:

 

  • Checking for any leaks
  • Ensuring there are no fire or safety hazards
  • Replacing old worn parts
  • Cleaning of system or buildup and debris
  • Checking thermostat to ensure it is working correctly

Aside from having your heating system inspected and serviced you may also want to consider having your ducts cleaned. Over time dust and other debris can buildup in your ducting which blows right out of the vents when you run the AC or heater. To prevent sickness and allergies and to help your system run more efficiently its a good idea to have your ducts cleaned and serviced once a year. This will also include changing out the air filters.

 

Plumbing System

Routine plumbing maintenance is also important. Its true you don’t really give much thought to your plumbing system until you have a major plumbing disaster. However this shouldn’t be the case. Most plumbing disasters can actually be prevented with proper plumbing maintenance. As part of your Fall routine maintenance for your plumbing system you should check the following:

 

  • Check for leaks under the sink or behind the toilet
  • Inspect faucets and showerheads for any drips
  • Inspect any pipes that are exposed to the elements for any damage
  • Make sure your pipes that are exposed are properly insulted, especially if you live in an area where temperatures drop below freezing
  • Check for any openings or cracks that can allow cold air to penetrate along the foundation of your home and attic space. When temperatures drop cold air can cause frozen pipes and also make your home less efficient
  • Check your water heater for any signs of corrosion and check the temperature gauge

 

You can always call your local plumber and heating specialist to perform a thorough inspection of your homes heating a plumbing system. Check out our Plumbing Directory to find a professional plumber near you!
