Here are some tips to help with not having to call a plumber so often.
Pouring grease or oil into a drain is always a bad idea. It can cause buildup inside the piping and usually will cause a drainage issue. Pouring cooled fats and oils into an empty coffee can or milk jug is and easy and safe way to dispose of them in the trash. Saving you cleanup time on your trash cans as well.
Use screens to catch assorted debris in the drain to prevent clogs and buildup from food or hair and other debris.
It’s a great idea to take the time to investigate where your water main shut off valve is located in case of emergencies like burst pipes or big leaks!
When you are flushing things down the toilet be sure that they are only body waste or toilet paper – Toilets are not designed for other material and it can save you a lot of cleanup by reducing stoppages and backups from things like baby wipes.
If you put a drop of food coloring into the tank of you toilet you can easily see if there is a leak into the bowl – small leaks in toilets and pipes can add up to big cost by the end of the year.
Make sure to drain any hoses you have outside your home as well as other water fixtures when freezing weather is expected. Though it only happens a few times a year in Addison, it can save a lot of time and money having to replace broken hoses and spigots.
Make sure that any drain access points that you have in your home are remembered… don’t build or carpet over them as they are there to help should you ever have a clog or other problem that you can’t easily get to.
Make sure that your home is heated adequately by checking the air-flow; you can save a lot of hassle and prevent wall and ceiling pipes from freezing.
When taking extended vacations you may want to turn off your water main that you investigated the location of.
Try not to use chemical cleaners if you can avoid it. Though they are made for blockages and clogs, they can damage pipes especially in older homes where the pipes are made of cast iron. These chemicals can eat and etch the metal reducing the strength of your plumbing.
If you have a large home, sometimes you may want to have separate shutoff valves for different parts of your dwelling so that if you need to make repairs in the garage you can still do dishes in the kitchen or take a shower in the upstairs bathroom.
