The plumbing system has a lot of components, but the two primary parts of the system are the pipes and the drains. While the water line brings in clean water, the drains carry out hundreds of gallons of waste and wastewater per day. These drains are typically only a couple of inches in diameter, meaning they are extremely vulnerable to clogging. A few bones here and a couple of apple peels there could have you dealing with a wastewater backup.
Installing drain filters, garbage disposals, and grease traps will do wonders, but do your part too. Keep scrap foods, used grease, hair strands, hygiene products, and non-biodegradable items out of the drains. Toss these in the trash bin instead.
A large portion of clogs involve the toilets. Unfortunately, customers and clients can be thoughtless and try to flush all sorts of trash down the toilet. Keep a trash bin near each toilet to encourage proper etiquette and consider swapping those three-plied toilet paper with two- or single-plied ones. You might also want to consider installing bidets. If a toilet is backing up, stop trying to flush and call Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Tampa! We can arrange a professional drain cleaning as soon as possible.
To be frank with you, most plumbing problems either fall under the "clogs" category or the "leaks" category. Leaks are a bit less common but accidental damage, neglect, general wear and tear, or extreme and fluctuating temperatures could have you dealing with water leaks. Scrutinize your water bills and pay attention to sudden and persistent spikes in water usage. Inspect pipes, drains, and toilets for damage, and have a plumber repair damages as soon as possible. If a toilet is leaking at the base, then it is likely time for a toilet replacement.
Most of the time, the culprit in cases of low water pressure is a blockage. Mineral and sediment buildup in the water line or water heater can drop water pressure to a trickle. That’s surely going to slow down production. A water filtration system should help, but routine inspections and maintenance are crucial. Call Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Tampa if you are interested in a whole-building water filtration system or plumbing inspection.
