We all run into issues with our plumbing from time to time but that being said, there are some useful tips you can apply to your homes water system and appliances to avoid running into such issue and minimising the costs involved with calling out a professional. Also, running less water will save you money and the environment.
You should always be concious of what you are putting down your toilets or down your sink. Deposits can build up over time and cause blockages which can be costly to inspect or fix. never flush large objects, grease or chemicals down the sink or toilet and you’ll be half way there to ensuring it wont get blocked
Check you appliances regularly, especially the ones that are in consistent use such as your washing machine or dishwasher. Never use the appliance if you think there may be an issue as water escaping from broken hoses can, over time cause wood and other surfaces to rot and can be expensive to fix. Damp build up as a result of leaking pipes or hoses is also detrimental to both your health and your property. You should call in a professional if you think you may have damp but avoid this altogether and have your system, appliances, hoses and pipes serviced regularly. Follow the tips below in the graphic and see how you could save money, time and inconvenience by looking after your water systems properly.
