Protect Your Pipes with These Simple Steps
Protect your pipes with simple, easy-to-do steps that will ensure your pipes stay clean and functional year round. It’s the best way to protect against clogs and other horrors like backed up septic systems. You know what I’m talking about. If you’ve lived on your own for any length of time, you know exactly how much of a pain clogged pipes can be. If you have a septic system, you also might know the nightmare of a backed up septic system. So take these simple steps to protect your pipes.
Protect Your Pipes Easily
We all know how much of a headache clogged pipes are, but we’re not doomed to always experience them. Let’s just protect those pipes and drastically reduce how often we have to deal with the problem! Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of curing something gross!
In the shower or bathtub, limit how much hair makes its way down the drain by using a drain guard. They’re super cheap and they can save you a lot of hassle. These guards are a plate with holes that you fit over your drain. The plate helps trap hair before it gets into the drain, saving you from a backed up bath drain.
To keep hair out of your bathroom sink, always remember to brush or comb your hair well away from the sink, and if you see any hair in the sink, remove it before it can make its way down the drain.
To protect your septic system be sure you only flush toilet paper. Never flush paper towels, dental floss, tampons, or baby wipes which aren’t specifically designed to break down. When you limit your flushing to just toilet paper, you’ll protect your system from clogs and unnecessary buildup.
In addition to these tips, you can use Roto-Rooters pipe cleaning and septic tank treatments to keep your bathroom pipes and your septic system clean and in good working order.
The kitchen is another area in the home where clogs can be a big issue. It’s important to take steps to prevent any sort of gross clogs from occurring. To prevent debris from clogging up the pipes, ensure that your sink strainer/stopper is always down the drain. Don’t stop the drain, just ensure that the strainer/stopper is in place to catch and food debris that gets washed off as you do the dishes.
You’ll also want to protect your kitchen drain from greasy build up. Never, never, EVER pour grease down your kitchen drain. Over time, that grease will build upon the walls of your pipes and in the trap, leading to a greasy, disgusting backup.
In addition to preventing debris and grease from building up in your kitchen pipes, protect your pipes with Roto-Rooter’s degreasing pipe treatment to ensure that your pipes stay squeaky clean!
