• Tips for Preventing a Home Plumbing Emergency

    Flush Toilet

    As if there’s ever a good time for a plumbing emergency , they always seem to occur at the worst possible time—like when you’re preparing to leave for a long family vacation or in the midst of a relaxing night’s sleep. You can’t always predict when a plumbing emergency will strike, but you can take steps to prevent a plumbing emergency from developing in the first place. These tips should help your home stay dry, but be sure to keep an emergency plumber’s phone number close just in case.

    Be Careful about What You Flush

    One of the most common plumbing emergencies is toilet backflow. To keep your waste from coming up, make sure you don’t flush anything that can clog your pipes. Feminine hygiene products, cotton swabs, cigarette butts, and dental floss are just a few of the common household items that can clog your pipes and cause your waste to come flowing up. If your house is hooked up to a septic tank, avoid putting paint, antifreeze, oil, and other non-organic fluids down the drain, as they can destroy the bacteria inside the tank that helps to break down waste.

    Know Where Your Pipes Are

    Knowing where your pipes are located can help you avoid puncturing a pipe with screws and nails when hanging up pictures or doing other home improvement projects. In addition to knowing where the pipes are located, you should also know where your home’s main water shutoff valve is located. In the event of a plumbing emergency, knowing how to turn off the supply of water to your home can help prevent flooding.
