We know it might seem like your plumbing is the least of your home maintenance woes, but if neglected you’re headed towards a major plumbing disaster. So to ensure that your pipes are at their best health possible, here are three preventive measures, all homeowners should take.

1. Watch What You Flush

Your toilet is not a trash can, so don’t treat it as such! The only thing that should ever go down your toilet is toilet paper, and human waste everything else can cause a major plumbing clog. We know that flushable wipes might seem like a great idea, but not all plumbing system can handle them, so resist the flush and throw them in the trash.

2. Watch What Goes Down Your Drain

Hair, hair, it’s always everywhere! We know shedding in the shower isn’t easy to avoid, but you can keep it from getting clogged down your drain. Allowing hair to pass through your pipes, can cause a significant wet and hard to remove clogs, that’s not so pleasant to remove. Instead, purchase a plastic hair catcher to ensure that your shower drain is staying hair free. When it comes to your sink, keep the oils, fats, and grease far away and dispose of them in the can.

3. Be Careful With DIY Fixes

DIY might be all the rage now, but somethings are best left for the professionals especially when it comes to your plumbing! Sudden leak? Get it looked at ASAP! Constantly getting clogged drains? Stop with the drain cleaner and call a plumber. Follow one simple rule, if you are unsure of how to do it — don’t.
