Did you know that the plumbing system in your home makes up roughly fifteen percent of the house's overall value? Along with your electrical system, the plumbing in your home adds convenience (as well as the added benefit of cleanliness) to today's lifestyles.
The best way to preserve your plumbing system's value is to make sure that it is maintained properly. Clearing tub and shower drains of hair and other debris, not pouring cooking grease into sink drains, and not flushing objects likely to cause clogs (like paper towels or sanitary products) will go a long way to keeping the need for a plumbing repair at bay.
There are many home plumbing tasks that a homeowner can tackle themselves without calling a licensed professional plumber. Clogged drains, leaky faucets, or a running valve in the toilet can all be easily remedied with minimal tools, parts, or expense by a handy homeowner. Plungers, augers, and enzyme-based drain cleaners (instead of chemical-based) are all good tools for the homeowner to have in their clog-busting arsenal.
Leaking faucets and running toilets cost money over time in wasted water. Clogged drains aren't just an inconvenience; they can be a sign of more serious underlying problems. Maintaining your home's plumbing system is an easy way to prevent expensive emergency repair bills.
If the do-it-yourself methods aren't sufficient enough to solve your leak or clog issues, call the trusted plumbers at Magic Rooter Septic Tank & Plumbing today.
