Drain Maintenance In Las Vegas

Drain Maintenance in Las Vegas

Drain maintenance in Las Vegas can be tricky because of the hard water. Mineral build up can cause drain clogs as easily as putting unwanted items in the drain. When on a job, we always provide the benefit of the doubt before inspecting a drain. Below are a few tips on what not to put down the drain.

Please Don’t Put These In The Drain

A few items we should never put down the drain are eggshells, coffee grounds, fruit rinds, vegetable talks and medications. While it may seem like the place to put them, the drain doesn’t always take kindly to these items. When items are placed in there repeatedly, not only does a drain clog occur, sometimes there is a gas build up and odor coming from the drain.

Medications should never be flushed down the toilet or placed in the drain. Once flushed, they go directly into the water supply. The EPA (environmental protection agency) has a way to dispose of unwanted or expired medications, Click here for details

Keeping A Drain Clean

When a drain does have an odor or you have cleared a clogged drain, it’s a good idea to clean the drain thoroughly. This can be done by using the hottest water possible to loosen up debris and build up. We also recommend a little bit of baking soda followed by a bit of vinegar. Cleaning the drain regularly with these simple tips will help keep the water flowing all year long.

In Las Vegas, pipes can burst when temperatures heat up causing pressure to build inside the pipes. Once the pipe bursts, pooling water or gushing water is usually the result.  

Severe Heat Causes Problems

Severe Las Vegas heat dries out the land and dry soil is much looser than moist soil. Underground pipes have more room to shift and move around in land affected by extreme heat. This may lead to older, underground pipes breaking as they shift and move more than usual. While unlikely to happen inside a home, main underground pipes on their route from the road to your home can definitely mean trouble. Cutting back on water usage during extreme heat can help relieve pressure on the entire system and pipes.

We’ve put together a few Superior Plumbing Las Vegas tips to help reduce the chances of broken pipes:

  • Water early in the morning or after the sun has gone down
  • Follow the Las Vegas Valley Water watering guide
  • Keep areas around irrigation systems clean to allow water to flow
