The Best Way to Maintain Your Plumbing

The Best Way to Maintain Your Plumbing

Every homeowner likes to keep their home in the best condition. It’s why you spend a significant amount of time on weekends looking after and cleaning different features in your home. However, things like plumbing are largely out of sight, and so out of mind too. However, it’s as important to maintain the plumbing in your home, as it is to maintain any other feature. Let’s take a look at some of the common plumbing issues that homeowners face and how you can tackle these with some home remedies or simple fixes.

  • Clogged drain Just pour about ½ cup of salt down the drain and then follow that up with some hot water, until the drain gets cleared
  • No/hardly any water coming from faucet- Ensure that the valve positioned under your sink is open and then plug your drain. Next, just unscrew the aerator out of the faucet and the rinse and carefully clean all the components of the aerator and then re-assemble it. You will find that the water is flowing out of it, as it should
  • Garbage disposal block– This is another very common issue and over time, food particles, grease etc. get tend to create a block in the installation. It’s a good idea to occasionally run some crushed egg shells and ice cubes in the garbage disposal and then flush it down with some cold water. That helps clear the block  to a certain  degree

Regular plumbing maintenance

If you find that your drains are getting blocked very often, it’s crucial that you don’t use any harsh chemical cleaners.
