In fact, just one small leak in the bathroom could easily escalate to something much bigger that leaves your plumbing system unable to be used.
This scenario is made much more probable when the weather outside gets colder. In fact, there is no other time during the year when your plumbing system takes more wear and tear than during the winter.
There are a lot of reasons for this. For instance, during the winter months there are more people in the house using the plumbing system than during the summer months when everyone is outside.
Also, having a source of hot water is very important during the winter months as the weather outside is cold and the hot water can make a big difference in defrosting from a cold day running around town.
In addition to being comfortable in your home during the winter, it is important to be productive in your home. One of the main parts of your plumbing system that helps with that is the drain system.
Here are a few things that you can do to make sure that your drain system is working properly all year around:
- Never pour animal fat or cooking grease down the kitchen sink. This is a surefire way to create a nasty clog in your drain system
- Don’t flush things down the toilet that are not waste or toilet paper. Nothing else should ever be flushed down the toilet except for these two things. Everything else should be thrown away in the garbage can
- Install drain covers over all of the drains in your home to catch the hair and food particles before they go down the drain. This is the quickest and cheapest way that you can protect your drains from serious disaster
