How to Prevent Plumbing Emergencies

No one is ever fully ready to predict what mishaps will occur around our homes or business. Of course, there is always the do-it-yourself temporary fix that can work, but calling the professionals for a plumbing emergency will be your best option. Here are some of the ways you can prevent plumbing emergencies for your residential or commercial space.

Be aware of what goes down your drains

Clogged drains are among the most common plumbing problems. That is because places like the toilet and kitchen sink are easily mistaken for trash cans. Make sure only flushable items go down. Even garbage disposals can cause drainage problems so be sure to treat it as a crumb catcher, not a trash can. Other things to consider are liquid drain cleaners. Although they claim to do the job, the formula is so strong that it can cause a few holes to begin to deteriorate the pipe causing you an unwanted water bill.


Treat leaks or slow drains ASAP

When it comes to leaks or slow drains, they should never go unnoticed. Using the old bucket trick to catch leaks should be the second to last thing you do before calling in a plumber to check where the leak is coming from for you. Slow drains usually mean a clogged drain from build-up, so make sure to do frequent cleanouts with natural ingredients or use a plunger. If the slow drain or leak persists, call in an expert for emergency service.


Notice changes in water pressures

You know all the sounds your home makes from the squeaks on the cupboards to the creeks on hardwood floors. Pay attention and notice any sudden changes in the water pressure. Water pressure issues usually indicate that a leak is near.


Know where the shut-off valve is

A shut-off valve will be your best friend when an emergency occurs. Turning the valve off will stop water from flowing and continuing a flood. There is usually a shut-off valve for the main drainage areas in your home like the toilet, kitchen sink and water heater. Become familiar with how to turn off the valves so that you have a sense of a safe window while you wait for a plumber to stop the leak from occurring again.


Keep up with inspections

Save money by not making the same repairs over and over again, and have a plumber come in instead. They will inspect sewage systems, check for leak detection but most importantly keep up with inspections. They will also make sure to share helpful information to help you better prepare for plumbing emergencies. Things like having a sump pump on hand are good things to note.
