Plumbing Hints

Plumbing HintsI have some important plumbing hints for you today.  A 10-minute shower with a conventional showerhead can use up to 42 gallons of water.  Consider installing a low-flow showerhead which will use far less water, or you can set a household shower time limit.  Don’t neglect your drains.  Drains are overlooked until a clog arises.  Give them a monthly cleaning with a cup of baking soda and a cup of vinegar; let it set for 15 minutes and rinse with hot water.  Avoid using harsh chemicals as they are harmful to the environment and can damage your pipes. Dental floss might be a friend to your teeth, but not your toilet, it is shred- resistant and when it enters the sewage system, it bonds with waste and eventually forms clumps that block pipes.  The same can be said about hair, don’t flush hair down the toilet.  Use these nifty plumbing hints to help you maintain your plumbing system.  De Hart Plumbing, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas and Wamego Kansas.
