Avoid these Common Home Plumbing Mistakes

Every home experiences some plumbing problem or another. There are some plumbing problems that crop up due to some sort of plumbing fault. And then there are plumbing problems that we ourselves cause.

Sometimes, we may not realise we are doing something wrong until it’s too late to. At Loughton Master Builder, our plumbing Loughton team receives calls for fixing problems of all kinds, including avoidable plumbing problems.

Here’s a look at some common home plumbing mistakes to avoid.

Dumping Waste into the Drain

One of the most common plumbing mistakes people make is throwing in items. When you throw inappropriate items into the drain, your sink gets blocked. Some of the items may simply clog your drains. And drain cleaners won’t get these items out. Avoid dumping waste into the drain, or be prepared to call a plumbing Loughton expert.

Flushing Waste into the Toilet

We all know what the toilet is for. Make sure, everything else goes into the dust bin and you have rid yourself of the most common avoidable plumbing problem. If you have kids, this problem becomes unavoidable sometimes. If kids throw something in the toilet, avoid flushing it. If you accidentally do, then it may get stuck and the only way to fix it is to remove the toilet. Many times, our plumbing Loughton experts get a call to fix a situation where inappropriate items were dumped down the toilet.  

Pouring Grease Down the Drain

Grease solidifies at some point eventually, which will cause clogs. The best way to avoid this problem is not throw grease into the drain at all.

Using Drain Snakes in Toilet

Drain snakes are meant for drains. They are not made for toilet bowls. They can in fact severely damage toilet bowls. Instead, use a plunger or even better, call our plumbing Loughton experts to fix your problematic toilet.

DIY Plumbing without the Know How

DIY plumbing may sound like fun. However, if you do not have the technical know-how, avoid tackling DIY plumbing. Instead, simply call the professionals. Don’t let a small problem grow into a massive plumbing job which may end up costing you a lot more than you bargained for. Our plumbing Loughton experts can take care of your plumbing problems in a jiffy.
