Plumbing Mistakes You’re Making
There’s not a homeowner on this planet that knows every trick to keeping their house in pristine condition. However, that doesn’t mean you have to settle for making little mistakes that cost you money and can damage your home in the process. These are some common plumbing mistakes that you’re probably making as we speak.
Using Chemical Drain Cleaners
If you happen to use a chemical drain cleaner once or twice in the time that you occupy your home, chances are it won't do too much damage. However, if that's the product you reach for every time you have a clogged drain, you'll be doing major damage to your pipes.
The ingredients in those products can corrode the inside of your pipes and cause bigger problems down the line. You're better off using a drain snake or a homemade cleaner.

Not Using Drain Traps
The reason your drains get clogged in the first place is because you allow food, hair, and other items to flow into the pipes. By investing in cheap plastic or rubber drain traps, you can catch all of that gunk before it has the chance to mess with your pipes.
Ignoring Plumbing Issues
One of the biggest mistakes you can do when it comes to your plumbing is ignoring issues and hoping they'll go away on their own. Here's a spoiler alert: they won't. If you notice an issue like a clogged drain, leaking faucet, or water damage near your heater, it's important to have a professional plumber take a look at it and make the necessary repairs before the problem gets worse.
