The New Year is upon us, and with it, the majority of us are thinking about our New Year’s resolutions. Every year we have a host of resolutions for our health, education, and wallets, and learning about your plumbing system can help improve all three of these. We’ve compiled a list of resolutions for your plumbing system that you can begin applying today.
1. Prevent your pipes from freezing
A burst pipe can be a costly problem you could be facing with your pipes this winter. Make sure you give them proper insulation this year to avoid any problems. You can find more information on winterizing your pipes here.
2. Be nice with your garbage disposal Make it a goal to be more conscious of what you’re putting down your garbage disposal. Some things are common sense to not put down your pipes, but you may be surprised about what seemingly harmless things can damage your plumbing system. You can find more information here.
3. Get your plumbing system inspected.
Like your car, it’s important to get the occasional check-up to make sure there aren’t any hidden leaks that could cost you a lot of money and a huge headache!
4. Fix your drainage system early.
It’s better to fix any problems as early as possible to prevent larger issues from occurring. Look for any signs of dripping, leaking, and otherwise noisy drains and pipes as these could be signs of a plumbing system in peril.
Health and wealth are some of the biggest focuses of all our New Year resolutions, and keeping our plumbing systems in check will be one of our easiest resolutions of the New Year. Feel free to keep a print-out of this list to make it even easier by checking that each of these are done.
Clear Pipe wishes you a Happy New Year!
