When you are trying to avoid calling a plumber in Denton, here are some tips to save you some grief as well as some cash! The following are some tips to help you to avoid having to call a Denton plumber in the first place (not that it is any imposition; we certainly welcome your business!).
1) Never, ever, ever pour grease and/or oil into your drains. This will eventually cause a buildup inside your pipes and will usually lead to a clogged drain in your sink. An empty coffee container or milk jug to store any oil or grease that you need to dispose of is a quick and easy way to save on expensive plumbing bills and since they can usually be sealed you avoid giant trash can messes as well.
2) Set up a mesh or slotted drain screen to catch all of the bits of food and hair as well as other debris that can get into your drain and cause backups or clogs. Clean it regularly to prevent standing water issues in your sink or bathtub.
3) Definitely take the time to know where your main shut-off valve for your water main is… Sometimes they are in your home and other times they are outside your home. Knowing this vital information can be especially helpful if you have discovered a leak or a burst pipe.
4) The number one rule for toilets is to only flush body waste and toilet paper. This is what they are made for; flushing other items can lead to expensive and stinky blockages in your main sewer line. In instances where you have a drain or access to the line in the basement this can be really, really gross. Did I mention expensive?
5) A super nifty, inexpensive trick to see if the seal in your toilet tank is tight is to place a couple of drops of food coloring into the reservoir and check to see if the colored water is entering the bowl. If it is, you probably need a Denton Plumber to replace the flapper in your tank.
6) Freezing weather while not all that common in Denton, does happen on a yearly basis. Make sure that you drain your hose taps and the hoses connected to your taps when freezing temperatures are expected. Doing these couple of things can save you from having to replace a cracked pipe or tap.
7) Drain access points should always be readily available and easy to find or get to in the case that the line is blocked and must be cleared. You can help by not putting closets or carpeting/rugs over the access points. Having to find a hidden access point is an easy way to rack up the hours your plumber spends at your home fixing the issue at hand.
8) Prevent frozen pipes by double checking the air circulation in your home. When you are going to be away from your home during cold months maintain a temperature of at least 50° and make sure that any pipes outside of walls are insulated. If you are taking and extended vacation, turn of the water main that you now know the location of.
9) Chemical cleaners while handy should be used sparingly, or avoided all together. Not only are these chemicals caustic to your pipes, sometimes even able to etch into the metal, they are seriously hazardous to your health. Anyway, no one wants to be cleaning a severely clogged drain filled with a substance like Drain-o that can splash on them and cause corrosive chemical burns to clothing, skin or equipment.
10) You can install separate shut –off valves to provide an easy way to shut water off to specific areas in your home, eliminating the need for turning off the master valve if you only need to fix a bathroom toilet or an outside faucet.
