The Most Helpful Plumbing Repair Questions Awnsered

As a new homeowner you have a lot on your plate. Part of your newfound responsibility includes maintaining all of the plumbing in your home. You may end up using local plumbing repair and installation services if the repair is out of your scope or you might only face small repairs that you can handle yourself. In any case you can use the information in this blog post to find the answers to questions about plumbing that you may have yourself.

Simple Answers to Your Plumbing Questions

How do I prevent clogging my toilet?
In general, your toilet will clog if you don't use it properly. By that we mean you shouldn't use it to dispose of anything but toilet paper. Here's just a few things you should never flush down your toilet unless you won't to flood your bathroom. The choice is yours!

  • Tampons
  • Sanitary pads
  • Paper towels
  • Floss
  • Food
  • Q-tips
  • Cotton balls
  • Toenail clippings
  • Condoms
All of the above items belong in your garbage can, not your toilet. If you get that confused your toilet will clog. So, make it easy for yourself and put a waste basket in your bathroom. Voila, no more clogs.


How do I prevent clogging my garbage disposal?

If you want to prevent your garbage disposal from clogging don't put any of the following in it:

  • Fish bones
  • Chicken bones
  • Rice
  • Bread
  • Pasta
  • Asparagus
  • Celery
As you can see, you don't want bones, or anything stringy or starchy in your garbage disposal. They will create a clog that you won't want to deal with. Also, be sure to turn the water on before you start your garbage disposal, not after. This will help it work more efficiently.

How do I keep my sinks from clogging?
Don't put any fats or oils down your kitchen sink and it won't clog. Clean out the hair from your bathroom sink and it won't clog.


How do I stop my shower from clogging?
This is an easy one, but it will take weekly effort. Clean out the hair from your shower drain. That's all.

How can I reduce my water bill?

You can easily reduce your water bill by replacing your current shower head with a low flow shower head. If you have a very old toilet you can fill a 16 ounce water bottle and put in the tank of your toilet. This will reduce the amount of water that gets flushed out when you use the bathroom
