What to Know About Plumbing as a First-Time Homebuyer

Purchasing your first home is one of the most exciting and pivotal moments in your adult life! From the flexibility and freedom of being able to make upgrades, to building your credit and finding community, homeownership is an all-around rewarding experience. With this excitement, however, comes responsibilities you have not yet faced. Dealing with your own landscaping and maintenance are some of the major changes that occur when you go from renting to owning, so it’s important that you learn quickly and keep up with the responsibilities at hand. You’ll likely have questions that come up as you deal with certain circumstances for the first time. ASAP Plumbing knows that dealing with your home’s plumbing is not the most glamorous of changes, so we’ve put together some tips for those first-time buyers out there.

Have a Plunger in Every Bathroom

Aside from the obvious use of a plunger for unclogging your toilet, having one handy in each of your bathrooms can be useful for a variety of reasons. These convenient tools are equally successful at unclogging sink, tub and shower drains, so make sure to try it out before giving up or using harsh chemicals to unclog pipes.


Take Care of Your Garbage Disposal

Common myths like the idea that using hot water helps grease flow more easily down the drain and that eggshells help sharpen blades are actually harmful and negatively affect your disposal. Make sure you do the proper research before putting anything down your disposal, or call our friends at ASAP Plumbing for assistance.

Clean Out Your Drains Often

Cleaning out our drains periodically prevents unpleasant odors, standing water and bugs. Make sure you have a plan to schedule a drain cleaning at least once a month to ensure your pipes are well taken care of.

Know Where Your Main Water Shutoff Valve is Located

In the event of a plumbing emergency, knowing where the shutoff valve is located is crucial. Make sure you know where to find your valve and that it is easily accessible. Furniture, appliances or other items should never be placed in the way of this valve.

While it’s tempting to call someone the minute you have a problem, some plumbing issues require simple solutions. We are here to help make sure your time is well-spent.
