What You Should Know

Here are a few things that you should know when it comes to your home’s plumbing system.

Know What Can Go Down Your Drain

Do you know what can go down your drain? Before you give this answer a knee-jerk “yes” as a response, make sure you really give a deeper thought. Do you really know if everything that you put down your drain on a regular basis is actually supposed to go down there? We’re sure that you probably don’t. We’re not going to shame you for it though—we’re just going to take the opportunity to inform you here today. Here are a few things that should never go down your drain:

  • FOG (fat, oil, and grease)
  • Coffee Grounds
  • Eggshells
  • Bones
  • Fruit Pits
  • Peels
  • Pithy or Stringy Foods
  • Paper Towels
  • Product Stickers
  • Cleaning Products

If you raised your eyes at an of the items above, you don’t have to feel any shame about it. Just make sure that you stop putting these items down your drain now and save your garbage disposal while you’re ahead.

Don’t Ignore the Drips

If you’ve noticed an annoying amount of dripping from your faucet, then it’s time for you to schedule an appointment with our professionals. We know that a drip or even a minor leak seems like it’s nothing. You can just get used to the noise and ignore the problem altogether because it’s not that bad… right? You might think this is the case, but over time it’s going to become a major issue for the efficiency levels in your home.

Know the Trouble Signs

Another important thing to note is the signs of trouble with your kitchen plumbing. Sometimes, you might have a problem, but you don’t recognize it as an issue because you don’t have the right background knowledge. Here are some early warning signs to watch out for:

  • Less hot water than you’re typically used to
  • Your kitchen plumbing system is a little too noisy
  • Your water color is off (it’s stinky, rust-colored, cloudy, or has particles floating around in it)
  • You have any sort of leak in your home

Keep your eyes peeled and know what the warning signs are.
