Basic Plumbing Maintenance Tips For Homeowners

Basic Plumbing Maintenance Tips For Homeowners

As a homeowner, you like to make sure that all the features and installations in your home are always functioning well. You spend time, effort and money on different types of regular maintenance, but somehow plumbing installations tend to take a back seat. This typically occurs because these fixtures are largely out of sight, which is why you rarely give any thought to them; at least not until something goes wrong with them.

We at SPS Plumbers have seen exactly how these types of problems become aggravated and get out of control. Ultimately, they become very difficult and costly to fix and the best way to avoid this is to follow some basic plumbing maintenance tips. Here are some common plumbing issues that homeowners face and how they can be dealt with:

  • No Water Coming from the Tap– Check whether the valve under the sink is open. Plug the drain and unscrew the aerator from the tap. Rinse it very carefully, making sure there isn’t any debris or dirt stuck in it. Fit it into place and you will find that the water starts to flow from it as before.
  • Clogged drains Pour ½ cup of salt and baking soda down the drain. Follow it with hot water, until your drain gets cleared.
  • Garbage Disposal Blocks– This problem commonly occurs because grease, food particles, fruit peels and more become stuck and create a block in it. It’s best to run some crushed ice cubes & egg shells in the garbage disposal and flush it down with cold water. It’s effective in clearing minor blocks.
