We often neglect our plumbing systems until a problem begins and we are inconvenienced. While plumbing issues are almost always unavoidable over time, there are ways to delay the deterioration of your plumbing system.

First, be careful about what you throw down your drains. Do not flush tampons, cigarette butts, cotton balls, or anything other than toilet paper. Do not throw solid food particles or grease down your kitchen sink.

Also, don’t forget to insulate your pipes to protect them from freezing and eventually, cracking. Busted pipes can be quite costly to fix. Insulating pipes can also minimize condensation and decay.

If you have a garbage disposal, you might be disappointed to know that you shouldn’t use it very often. While convenient, using it frequently can clog your kitchen pipes much more quickly.

Eventually, old plumbing systems might still give up, no matter how careful you are. Visit First 1 Right to work with an emergency plumber in Guildford.
