Unclogging your sink is usually quick and inexpensive when you call Dr. Pipes Plumbing, but a few simple rules of thumb can avoid clogs altogether. First, if you have a garbage disposal unit, try running cold water down the drain for about fifteen to twenty seconds before and after using it. This way, you can be sure that nothing is sticking. Second, never pour liquid grease down your drain. If need be, wipe the oil from pans and pots with something disposable and throw it in the trash. Third, do not put stringy materials into the garbage disposer. Waste such as carrots, banana peels, and animal skin or fat should never go down your drain.
Your garbage disposer unit has built-in protection for the motor. It has a sensor that detects whether the unit is overheating and if so, it shuts off as a safety precaution. If you find your disposer stopping on its own, it could be an overloading or broken electrical connection. First, never stick your hands or any objects down the drain. Turn the switch off, and make sure that the disposer plug is tight into its power source. While the unit is off, press the reset button. The reset button is on the bottom or front of the disposer. Turn it back on and check if the problem is corrected.
Before deciding on fixtures like faucets and shower-heads, it might help to see the item physically. When planning your residential plumbing renovation, ask your Dr. Pipes plumber if they can show you a sample for each of your top three choices. Most of our plumbers keep an array of fixtures in their service vehicles.
It is essential to maintain plumbing & fixtures, especially in older homes. Residences with plumbing over 30 years old need to be checked, if not monthly, yearly. Doing so will ensure that everything is in working order and minimize the risk of a plumbing emergency. Ask your Dr. Pipes plumber about maintenance checks and full-service residential plumbing plans so that you can sleep well at night.
Regardless of your bathroom and kitchen style, think about the areas around them when planning the decor. For example, nickel & chrome metals balance modern rooms, while clean lines blend nicely with minimalist detail. More ornate rooms with traditional lines will look best with similar style fixtures.
Every family is unique, and as such, every home is subject to different wear & tear. For example, most shower fixtures and bathtubs get used less than kitchen sinks. In this case, it might be a wise investment to refit the plumbing fixtures in your kitchen with one-touch control faucets or hands-free faucets. If you frequently entertain guests, you might consider high polished metal or dramatic silhouette faucets. Consult your plumber for ideas. Dr. Pipes plumbers are highly knowledgeable in these areas.
Homeowners often forget to think about plumbing fixtures when setting a budget for a kitchen or bathroom renovation. These are inexpensive, but you can still save money by deciding on new fixtures before a project begins. Old fixtures can sometimes be time-consuming to remove and refit to the new plumbing. Another thing to think about is that the money saved usually offsets the cost of new fixtures. When a faucet reduces your water bill by 30% per month, it does pay for itself quickly.
You may not want to hear that your old pipes need to be replaced, but it is imperative to do - especially if your plumbing system is from the 80s. It is a slow process, and you may not notice, but your water pressure becomes significantly reduced over time due to sediment forming. Dr. Pipes recommends that you replace all connections and pipes with either PVC or copper.
