Literally, that’s true. You CAN flush a wipe. But that doesn’t mean they’ll flow neatly down the drain. Flush enough of them and they’ll wad together and cause you one major blocked drain problem.
How to Shut off Your Water
If you come home to a watery mess, what’s the first thing you want to do? No, not call us – shut off your main water valve to stop the flow of water. If you don’t know where it is or how to use it, this is a great time to find out.
Don’t Use Chemical Drain Cleaners
In addition to being environmentally toxic, chemical drain cleaners will literally eat the inside of your metal water pipes. And only destruction and big repair/replacement problems can come from that.
Drain Your Water Heater Tank
It’s easy to learn, easy to do, and will help prevent sediment build-up that can bring an early end to your hot water tank’s useful existence.
Preventing a Blocked Shower Drain
Nothing blocks up a shower drain faster than loose hair, soap and shampoo residue, and other personal liquid or spray products. So if you don’t already have one, get yourself a hair catcher to place over your shower drain…they work brilliantly.
Stop the smell
If you pour spoiled milk or some other ill-smelling substance down your kitchen sink drain and do nothing else, guess what happens? Right, your kitchen drain and area around it are going to stink to the high heavens. So run the water for about 30 seconds and you’ll do more than kill the odour – you’ll help prevent your P-trap from blocking.
Are these and other home plumbing tips guaranteed to keep all your plumbing woes away? Ah, if only we could tell you that were so. But it’s not. So, whenever you need the services of a highly-skilled and licensed plumber, Swan’s is just one brief email or phone call away.
