Circle the Drain: Why It’s Important to Have Them Cleaned Regularly

Clogged drains are no fun.  They can be a problem to deal with and can throw off the whole balance of your house.  Want to avoid drain problems?  Get them cleaned regularly.  Here are the benefits of having regular plumbing check-ups and drain cleaning.

Our drains take a lot of abuse.  Much of the time, the common philosophy with our waste is out of sight, out of mind.  If food scraps, grease, potato peels, hair, and waste can disappear into our pipes, then the problem seems to no longer be ours.  It goes elsewhere.  However, a lot of the stuff that we insist on dumping into our plumbing can cause blockages.  While problems can be minor at first, without regular cleaning you can face big problems. 

  • Burst pipes and back-logged sewer systems are no fun, and can be easily avoided if you make sure you have regular, professional drain cleaning. 
  • It might be surprising, but the excess grease and oil from your dinner actually creates huge problems down the pipe because it can easily create blockage.  Other foods, like potato peels and coffee grounds are key culprits.  Products like paper towels, tampons, and sanitary napkins can also create blockage.

When you get your drains cleaned regularly, you can ensure that problems are tackled before they become major.  However, if you let clogs build up, you can face overflow and dealing with a large mess on your hands.  And if you are too exuberant with some clogs, you can ruin your pipes.  Instead, for major clogs, rely on plumbers who can save your plumbing from destruction.

Helpful Plumbing Tips to Help Keep Down the Price of Your Water Bill

We all want to save more money and nobody likes to pay bills.  But water is a necessity that we just cannot live with out, so water bills are simply a part of life.  While you can try to just decrease your water use to lower your water bill, you can also employ some clever plumbing tips that will save you water—and money.

  • Have leaky toilets addressed by a plumber.  You can lose a gallon of water a day through a leak in your toilet.  To see if you have a leaky toilet, place a dye tablet in the toilet’s tank.  If you find dye in the toilet bowl after half of an hour, you have a leak.  A plumber can make your toilet leak-free, and save you that gallon of water.
  • Repair your faucet leaks.  Not only is the constant drip, drip of a faucet leak incredibly annoying, but leaking faucets waste thousands of gallons of water every year.  Have your plumber inspect and repair your faucets.
  • Replace your current toilets with low-flow toilets.  This uses less water while flushing, saving you money on your water bill.  You can also replace your shower heads with low-flow options, which can save you about $150 a year total on both your heating and water bills.
  • Insulate your water pipes. Spending a long time waiting for your water to heat up?  Speak with plumbing professionals about insulating your water pipes.  When you keep your pipes insulated, hot water takes less – or no time at all – to appear.  Don’t waste any water waiting for water to get warm enough!

Could You Use More Time and More Money? Install a Trenchless Sewer Line!

While a trenchless sewer line may not be the first idea that pops into your head, it will in fact save you time and money! 

Due to new laws in California, there are requirements you may need to meet when remodeling or selling your house, and a trenchless sewer line can be a simple and cost effective solution.

Let's that a look at the benefits of a trenchless sewer line.

No Manual Excavation - This means you won't have to lose your front yard in order to get a sewer line.  When plumbers use modern technology, they can actually identify the point at which a sewer line is broken. This allows them to access the damaged area with two small access points, and then slide the new sewer line right in.

Less Labor - This is where you save in time and money.  Since you will successfully avoid the slow, laborious process of manual excavation, you'll also avoid the labor costs associated with the time consuming process.

Relining or Pipe Bursting - Relining and pipe bursting are the two methods by which a trenchless sewer line is put in.  Relining involves the installation of a fiberglass lining within the old pipes.  This makes them durable and ready to go.  Pipe bursting is when the plumber bursts the old pipe as the new pipe is pulled through the existing channel.

Prevention - Taking care of your sewage problems now can save you a lot of hassle in the future.  Remember, what could be a minor problem has a way of becoming a major problem when it comes to sewage.
