Something happened yesterday that made me thank God for the plumbers!
Early morning yesterday while I’m taking a bath, I heard a loud noise suggesting that something ceramic is broken! When I get out from the bathroom I saw my brother limping half unclad! You guess it right. He’s using the old toilet seat downstairs and it broke to pieces!
We called the plumber of the house and I appreciated the quick response. We called him around 6:30 am and he’s at home around 8:00 am. For less than an hour, he finished setting up the newly-bought toilet seat. To maximize his time, we also let him do some pipe repair of the leaky faucet in the kitchen and the clogging of the toilet upstairs.
You see, never underestmate the job of plumbers! Without them, who would do the dirty jobs for us?
However, there are preventative plumbing maintenance we can learn by own to help us save a lot of money by preventing the need for large repairs.
1. Do not flush tissue paper, cotton balls, facial tissues or make-up pads, sanitary products or even loose hair in your toilet. Obviously, these items do not dissolve and can clog the lines. Toss them away in your trash container in your bathroom.
2. See to it that your strainers are fitted to catch hair and soap chips. Clean the strainers regularly.
3. Once a week run hot water down the drain to help keep it free-flowing.
1. Never put your carrot peels , mango peels , fibers of your string beans or even fish scales and poultry skins into your garbage disposer. Throw them directly to your trash container.
2. After frying , don’t just pour used oil down the drain. Dispose them directly in the trash. Then, wipe congealed grease from pots and pans with a paper towel and dispose of in the trash.3. Run cold water down the drain for 15 seconds before and after using the garbage disposer to flush waste through the line.
Homeowners shouldn’t overlooked the importance of the plumbing system in the home. Like owning an automobile, your home also needs regular maintenance and upkeep. Don’t hesitate to choose a trusted plumber- not just a plumber in name but someone who’s highly skilled professional trained not only to unclog toilets and install new faucets. He should be someone who can protect your home from damage.Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post however, all the points and views are my own.
