Ways to Protect your Home Plumbing System

Plumbing and drain cleaning services are available for emergency situations and other smaller problems. This fact is comforting, but it does not mean that you should not take care of your home plumbing system. Being mindful and diligent about taking care of your system will significantly reduce the chance of problems or system failure. There are many different things that individuals can quickly do that will help to reduce the risk of an emergency. Most of the recommendations a New York plumber would make are relatively quick and easy to do.

  1. Although one or two strands of hair floating down a bath/shower drain may seem innocuous, they are not. Be sure to protect your shower/bath drains from hair. In time, hair will clump together and block water flow.
  2. Be a gatekeeper for what does and does not go down a kitchen sink drain. Many things can quickly go down a drain but should not. DO NOT pour grease or oil down the drain. Avoid getting trash in your sink.
  3. Chemical drain cleaners do sometimes work, but they can also do more harm than good. The chemicals in the drain cleaners will eat at pipes, which can cause leaks.
  4. Prepare pipes for cold northeast winters. Insulating pipes in the home is a great way to avoid a burst pipe on a below freezing day.
