We all cut corners at times. You know what it’s like – you’re running late so what’s the harm in just throwing a few bits and pieces down the toilet. It’ll flush away…won’t it? Well, you’d be surprised as to just how delicate your plumbing system can be. Take a look at some of the most common everyday habits that have the potential to be a plumbing disaster:
Doing Things Yourself
Everyone has a different level of skill when it comes to tackling plumbing jobs. So, it’s crucial to remember both your talents and your limitations. It can be very easy to take things apart but pretty darn hard to put them back together. If you’re ever in any doubt about how to best fix a plumbing problem or fix hot water system, Perth company Baywood Plumbing and Gas are always on hand to help.
Chucking Everything Down The Plughole
As we touched on earlier, your home plumbing is so much more fragile than you may think. Yes, your water drains perfectly down the plughole but that doesn’t mean that it’s a liquid free for all! So, you should never dump any grease, oil, chemicals and anything else you’re unsure of down the drain. You could be potentially creating a toxic cocktail or create blocks that will damage your pipework.
Using Shop-Bought Chemical Drain Cleaners
Yes, these ‘wonder’ products may promise the world, however, many chemical-based drain cleaners are seriously corrosive to your pipes as well as blocks. So, if you have a block that you’re worried about, it’s always best to consult a plumber. Baywood Plumbing and Gas are experts in drain cleaning. Perth people have been using our competitively priced and reliable services for over 25 years. And, our high volume of repeat business and client referral work speaks for itself.
