Preparing Your Plumbing for the Start of the Year

plumber in Bakersfield, CA

Most homeowners don’t think about how important their plumbing is until something goes wrong. If there’s a problem, you can have a plumber in Bakersfield, CA from The Plumbing Doc come to make repairs. Here are some good ways to prepare your plumbing for the new year.

Lower Your Water Pressure

You may be consuming more water than you actually use. To test this, try turning down the water pressure and see if you notice a difference. This will lower your water bills by easing the strain on your plumbing. If you are unable to lower the pressure yourself, you can contact a professional to help you.

Clean Drains with Natural Substances 

Skip using chemical drain cleaners and only use natural substances to clean and clear your drains. Baking soda and vinegar work best. Unlike chemical cleaners, they won’t damage and corrode the interior of your pipes. Put a half-cup of each down the drain, let it sit for an hour and then run the hot water to flush the drain. If you have a stubborn clog, however, it’s best to call your local plumbing company for the proper plumbing services.

Throw Things in the Trash

Some things should be thrown in the trash instead of flushed down the toilet or put down the drain. This includes feminine hygiene products, cotton swabs, cleaning wipes, cat litter, grease, fat and oils. These can cause a terrible clog. Avoid the need for emergency plumbing services by keeping garbage and other debris out of your drains.

Inspect for Leaks

Inspect all of your appliances and fixtures for potential water leaks. Staying on top of this issue can prevent it from getting worse. You can get immediate plumbing repairs if you detect a leak, which will benefit everyone in your household.
