Looking For A Plumber In Arbour Lake?

Looking For A Plumber In Arbour Lake?It’s never a good thing when your plumbing is clogged or there is some other issue that is messy and/or smelly. A reliable plumber in Arbour Lake is just a phone call away but wouldn’t it be great to NOT have to reach out to them in the first place? Homeowners make a lot of mistakes when dealing with their plumbing that plumbers wish you knew. Here are just a few to avoid:

  • Using chemicals to clear clogged drains. Made of harsh substances that can damage your pipes, these are never a good idea. Keep hair and grease out of the drain in the first place.
  • Flushing everything that says it is “flushable.” Toilet tissue is ok but be sure to throw everything else in the trash rather than the toilet.
  • Resolving clogs yourself. Unless you are a plumber, that is.
  • You don’t know where your main water valve is located. Know where this is, as well as all emergency shut-off valves in the home so that you can use them when needed.
  • Dropping toilet tabs in the tank or bowl to clean them. They contain chemicals that cause excessive wear on tank components and often do not disintegrate completely, causing flushing problems.
  • Neglecting to replace hoses on dishwashers and washing machines periodically.
  • Not having a leak protection system with an alarm and/or the main water shut-off function.
  • Overworking your garbage disposal. NEVER pour fat or grease in (even with accompanying hot water) or items like celery or apples into the unit.
  • Your hot water heater is more than 8-12 years old. This is just asking for trouble.
  • You adjust the water heater’s pressure valve yourself.
