Sometimes a small lapse in judgement is all it takes for things to get damaged around the home. When it comes to your plumbing, there are a few things that you should be careful of. Many people make these mistakes and there’s often a high cost to repair the damage they can cause. Read on to find out which things you should avoid doing to keep your plumbing in top condition.
Don’t Pour Fat Down The Sink
Double Check Your ‘Flushable’ Toilet Wipes
You might be surprised to know that many flushable toilet wipes aren’t actually safe to flush. The regulations for these products simply don’t exist, so quite often the term ‘flushable’ is a marketing tactic. Anything that’s made of synthetic material should not be flushed down the toilet. If you’re in any doubt, put the wipe in the bin. It’s far easier to dispose of that than it is to pull large clumps of clogged up wipes out of your drain!
Think Twice Before Using Drain Cleaning Chemicals
Don’t Go Out Of Your Depth
If you’re confident installing your new washing machine or fixing a leaky tap, by all means go ahead. However, if you’re not sure how to carry out a task safely and correctly, turn to a professional. A botched DIY job will be much more expensive to fix than it would have been if you called a plumber to do it in the first place. Plumbing is a messy, complicated job. There’s no shame if you’re unable to work out how to do it yourself.
