Your home’s plumbing can stop working for any number of reasons. Sometime’s its something you and your family have done and sometimes its an unavoidable cause. These causes can include tree roots, kitchen grease, septic problems, garbage, and aging water heaters.
Yes, that’s right. Tree roots present a danger to your home’s plumbing. Even though most of the trees you see in your yard or on your street have yet to wake up, that doesn’t mean their roots aren’t active. Given enough time, roots can invade anything, even the foundations of homes and businesses. The solution to this is a machine called a rooter, which will go in and remove the presence of roots.
Believe it or not, kitchen grease can gum up the works too. If you’ve just finished cooking dinner and feel a bit nauseous at the thought of all that grease, just wait until it ends up in your plumbing.
There are also some things that should never go down your toilet, because these will cause all sorts of septic problems. Bleach and paint are two common household items that you should never dispose of through your septic tank.
Likewise, even if you generate a lot of trash, it should go outside and outside only! In other words don’t put garbage down your pipes. This especially goes for food waste down your kitchen sink without the presence of a garbage disposal.
Aging Water Heaters
You might not expect your water heaters to cause any problems. Still, depending on how old they are, you might want to get them repaired or replaced. The only way to tell is to conduct regular inspections, and for that, you should call the experts at Bolton Services to come.
