Are the Drains all Clogged up Call in the Plumbing Experts in Reno?
When it comes to kitchen plumbing is your garbage disposal running smoothly? Did you call in an expert plumber to take care of all your plumbing needs?
According to an article at apa-tpd.org, “Garbage Disposal Backed up Again”
“Avoid putting grease, fat, and other oils down your drain. These materials may be liquid when you pour them in, but they will solidify and cause problems. A garbage disposal can even become clogged by hardened grease and it will not run at optimum speed and efficiency. To keep your drain running efficiently, dispose of fats and oils in other ways besides pouring them down the drain.
Schedule all the plumbing work at one time. You may want to have each minor problem attended as they occur, but having multiple repairs done at once allows you to save up for the cost. Most plumbers charge an hourly fee that can be minimized if there is only one visit to your home.
To keep things flowing smoothly through the drain of your bathtub, each month you should feed it baking soda, one cup’s worth, with a cup of vinegar to chase it. This will cause the vigorous bubbling you may remember from the “volcano” in a grade school science project, so be sure to close the drain with a stopper. After giving the mixture time to work, flush it out by running boiling water through the drain. This simple solution can break up clogs caused by everything from hair to soap scum.” To read the entire article click here.
