Now that the New Year is in full swing and many of us are getting back into our normal routines after the festive season, it’s time to look forward into the new year and make some changes or improvements in our lives. I am talking about New Year’s resolutions, of course, and not those challenging workout or restrictive diet ones either. Let’s make some easier resolutions that we are more likely to stick to and follow through on. And we can start with our home’s plumbing.
The plumbing system is an important element of our home and when it fails, it can cause all kinds of damage. So it goes without saying that we should take better care of our home’s plumbing system. This is where our New Year’s plumbing resolutions come into play. We are going to take a look at some changes that we can make to improve and take better care of our home’s plumbing.
5 New Year’s Plumbing Resolutions
Use Drain Screens- one of the most common plumbing problems is clogged drains. Whether they become clogged by human hair, dog hair, or something your children decided would fit down the drain, a clogged drain can create some big headaches. This year resolve to use drain screens and prevent those clogs once and for all.
Watch What You Flush- the second most common plumbing issue for today’s homeowners is a clogged or backed up toilet. Not everything was meant to be flushed and often times, those flushable wipes aren’t really flushable at all.
Inspect Your Boiler- one of the most neglected home appliances is the boiler. As long as our showers are hot, we don’t pay them much attention. Periodically, you should have your boiler inspected by a professional plumber to ensure that it is operating properly.
Check For Signs Of Hard Water- hard water can cause your shower heads and faucets to flow improperly, wasting water. If you have hard water, have a professional plumbing service install a water softener.
Inspect Your Pipes For Signs Of Corrosion- a corroded pipe can burst when you least expect it, costing thousands of pounds worth of damage to your home. If you see signs of corrosion on your pipes, contact a local plumber for service right away.
