When you have a plumbing issue, the best thing to do is reach out to a professional plumber to take care of things. Plumbers have the experience and training necessary to properly handle any repair or replacement services related to your plumbing system. There are a few things that any plumber wants their clients to know in order to make sure things are running smoothly. Here are some of the most important things your plumber wants to tell you.
- Your garbage disposal shouldn’t be used for large bits of food. Larger pieces of food and cooking debris can cause clogs and other problems with your garbage disposal, so make sure to keep anything that goes down your garbage disposal small. You also need to keep the water running while you run your disposal. Also, some things should never go down your disposal, such as grease, egg shells, and potato peels.
- Toilets aren’t trash cans. No matter how small you may think the garbage is, nothing besides waste and toilet paper should be going into your toilet. Sanitary products, paper towels, cotton swabs, and floss have no place in your toilet and can cause clogging.
- Don’t use storebought chemicals in your drains. Although it seems like the easy solution, putting commercial drain cleaners in your drain to clear clogs can actually damage your drains. If you aren’t able to clear a clog with hot water or a plunger, it’s best to call a professional plumber to get the job done right.
A good way to make sure that you’re doing what you need to in order to keep your plumbing system working properly is to talk to your plumber, so reach out to us here at Moody Plumbing Inc. today.
