Problems with the pipes are never a pleasant experience, and are often accompanied by water damage from leaking water, some sort of expense and possibly a headache or two. It isn't always easy to find a great Sunshine Coast Plumber, and you don't want to be paying for a small job that blew up into something bigger over time. Rather than waiting until things get to the point where you reach a crisis, take steps in your daily-to-day to ensure that you are following a good maintenance routine in the home, and keep your plumbing in good shape.
Flush Drains Regularly
To ensure that there is no build up, flush your drains once a week with hot water. This will help to dislodge any gunk that is left there during your daily processes of living while using your sinks. If there are sinks that you don’t use often this will also keep them from getting clogged with debris.
Fit Drain Strainers
It would be advantageous to fit a drain strainer to all of your sinks, especially in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry. In the kitchen this would often be connected to a waste disposal unit in the sink, which would benefit from being flushed once a week with orange/lemon peels and then cold water to keep it flowing nicely.
Replace/Fix Leaky Faucet
If you notice that there are water marks, or other signs of a leaky faucet, it is in your best interest to get the job fixed as soon as possible. The longer you leave it, the more water you lose, and the more damage is done to the surrounding walls and flooring, which can be a messy clean-up. For assistance with the problem of a leaky faucet, give us a call today and we'll help you work out how to tackle the problem in the most efficient and economical way.
Don't forget to regularly check all pipes around the house; including gutters, downpipes and ground pipes, to ensure that they are free from any floating debris, birds nests and root systems. If you notice blockages or leakage marks it could be because a tree root has pushed through the pipe and is obstructing the flow of water. This needs to be fixed immediately to avoid any future issues which could affect the foundation of the house.
