Fortunately, there are a few things that you can do to help the plumbing stay in top working order. Here are a few hints from a San Diego plumber:
Don’t Put Strange Things Down the Drain.
It sounds obvious, but clogged drains from paint, construction materials, large pieces of food and shortening have all caused problems with plumbing. San Diego residents have a reliable source to remedy this type of problem when they call By The Book PHA, but to avoid significant damage to your pipes, think twice before sending something that isn’t a complete liquid down the drain.
Watch the Kiddos!
Children are notorious for putting weird objects in the toilet. From food to bouncy balls and entire rolls of toilet paper, a plumber in San Diego has seen all sorts of things. Make sure to keep the toilet secured from curious toddlers, whether by keeping the bathroom doors shut, or purchasing a secure closing mechanism for the toilet . You don’t want them playing with the toilet like it is an indoor water table anyway.
Keep D-I-Y Plumbing Projects to a Minimum
Sure, pulling the hair out of tub drain is probably feasible, but if you have a leak or need major repairs and have no idea what you are doing, you can end up having to pay for costly repairs if all you have to go on are some internet instructions. Save time and money, and call a professional to handle any repairs to a skilled and licensed plumber. San Diego is served by By The Book PHA, and they can handle jobs of all sizes.
