Drain- Plumbing Tip # 2: Use a Strainer

Clogs are one of the most common plumbing problems, and when it comes to a shower or sink drain, it can become gross and messy thanks to hair and soap residue.

Avoiding the icky is as simple as using a basket strainer. This will help prevent a time-consuming and unpleasant task in the future.

Drain- Plumbing Tip #1: Don’t Pour Grease or Oil Down the Drain

Grease and oil build up. You’ll think that since it’s a liquid, it should go down the drain, but over time, grease and oil will clog your pipes.

Opt for a safer solution. Solidify fat before throwing it in the garbage or compost bin.

Tap

Tap– We like to always make sure our taps are turned off tightly so that they don’t drip. This actually wears the seal out more quickly though because of the increased pressure it is experiencing every time it is turned too tight. To avoid this, turn the tap until you feel the natural stopping point; don’t force it closed. Call us if you need us!
