Good plumbing should prevent water waste and keep your bill from making a huge dent in your wallet. Here are some tips to keep your plumbing system running smoothly:
Homeowners tend to use the wrong plunger for clogged toilets. The common cup plunger is designed for flat surfaces, like a sink or bathtub. Flange or ball plungers are specifically designed for the openings in the bottom of toilet bowls, allowing for a proper seal and optimal suction.
Replace appliances in your home with Energy Star products, which are rated by the Environmental Protection Agency to reduce energy use and water waste.
Consider installing front-load washing machines, which are designed for maximum energy efficiency.
Watch what you pour down the kitchen sink. Avoid pouring liquid grease or oil down the drain. Grind ice cubes and lemon rinds in the garbage disposal for 30 seconds to keep it clean and prevent unpleasant odors.
