Drain Maintenance and Care

Drain Maintenance and Care

Drain maintenance and care are key components to keeping your water flowing efficiently. Watching what we place down the drain is a good habit. Clogs cause additional problems and lead to failures in the pipes. Here are a few tips to help maintain clean and easy flowing drain pipes.

Baking Soda + Water
A handful of baking soda followed by hot water helps clean the drain. The baking soda acts as a non-abrasive cleanser and the water washed away the debris. This easy and effective method can be performed periodically for sinks and drains.

Baking Soda + Vinegar
Another easy remedy for small drain clogs is vinegar and baking soda. A little baking soda with a little vinegar provides a chemical reaction to help bust up clogs. Let the mixture sit in the drain for a few minutes before running hot water. Light clogs are cured with this method but heavier clogs may require a plumber.

No Grease Down the Drain
Drain maintenance and care actually starts here. Kitchen grease is easy to pour down the drain because it seemingly disappears. Therefore, the grease gets trapped in the pipes leaving a residue. This residue catches the larger pieces of debris and fibers placed down the drain.
Keep an empty plastic bottle in the kitchen to pour the grease. This helps when cleaning pots and pans by limiting the amount of grease and the amount down the drain.

When To Call A Plumber

When To Call A Plumber

Know when to call a plumber. Residential plumbing problems often require a plumber but we recommend that you troubleshoot them in advance. The most common residential plumbing problems are:

  • Clogged toilets
  • Clogged drains
  • Leaky faucets
  • Leaky pipes
  • Running toilets
  • Water heater leaks

Troubleshooting Plumbing Tips

Clogged toilets – A regular plunger is often the solution. Try this first.
Clogged drains – Kitchen drains have a garbage disposal. Check for larger debris and obstructions before using the garbage disposal. Bathroom drain clogs are cured by removing the drain stopper to clear the obstruction.
Leaky faucets – Check the faucet to ensure the handle works properly.
Running toilets –Remove the top of the tank to make sure the flap is all the way down. Also check the float position. The float gets stuck causing the toilet to run.
