Can I Keep Drain Clogs From Happening?
One of the most frustrating plumbing situations a homeowner can experience is a clogged drain. The good news is that there are many ways to prevent drain clogs.
The most effective means of averting a clog is combining good housekeeping practices with regular inspection and cleaning by a professional plumber.
Whether you have a septic system or are connected to municipal sewer, grease should never be poured down a sink, and only human waste and toilet paper should be flushed down toilets. In addition, trash catchers should be used whenever possible on kitchen and tub drains to keep food and hair from getting into piping.
Incorporating these steps with annual drain maintenance performed by a plumber will head off clogs before they ever happen.
What Should I Consider When Choosing a Water Heater?
The most important factor to consider when selecting a water heater is the maximum capacity of your home. The best way to determine this is based on the number of bedrooms instead of the current size of your household. When choosing among different water heater models, it’s also important to consider:
– Tankless versus traditional
– First hour rating
– Available space
A licensed plumber can assist you in determining the right water heater for your needs based upon the above factors.
What Constitutes as a Plumbing Emergency?
The best definition of a plumbing emergency is any event that causes water or raw sewage to escape from the piping that’s intended to contain them. A few of the most common and serious plumbing emergencies are broken pipes, broken fittings, and sewage back-ups. Emergencies of this nature require the attention of a professional plumber immediately to prevent expensive damage to your home, or environmental damage.
Minor plumbing emergencies include fixtures that don’t work properly, small leaks and slow drains. Even minor plumbing problems should be addressed by a plumber as soon as possible to prevent them from potentially developing into major emergencies later.
