Take a look!

  1. Utilize strainers to prevent hair and debris from clogging drain lines.
  2. Do not flush feminine products down the toilet as they can build up and prevent other items from flushing down the pipes.
  3. If your toilet is clogged because of an accumulation of waste, try using a plumbing snake or a closet auger.
  4. Clear your shower and sink drains by using a solution and drain stick regularly.
  5. Watch out for leaks and drips. If you do have a broken pipe or leaking toilet, turn off your main water valve to save water/money. The faster you fix a leaky pipe the less you will have to spend in maintenance costs.
  6. If you have a garbage disposal, avoid pouring fats, oils or harsh food items that will clog the drain.
  7. Some plumbing problems are do-it-yourself. Before you call a professional, take to the internet to research what the problem is and if you can achieve the solution yourself.
  8. Preventative maintenance costs money but will pay for itself in the long run by catching minor problems and providing the necessary care to keep your plumbing system in good shape.
