4 Money-Saving Plumbing Resolutions for the New Year

January 4, 2017


We hope you had a safe and wonderful holiday! The New Year is here and it’s time to start thinking about your resolutions for 2017! Keep your wallet and home happy by following this New Years Plumbing Checklist:

1. Keep up with home maintenance! Small problems become big, expensive problems when ignored. It’s important to be proactive about your plumbing, so be sure to schedule a home plumbing inspection to catch that hidden leak before it starts costing you money. Regular home maintenance is the best way to avoid costly damages in the New Year!

2. Stay alert to what goes down your pipes! Q-tips, paper towels, feminine products, and other bathroom items should never be flushed down your toilet! These products are often meant to stay compact and absorb moisture, which can cause sewage blockages. Also be sure to never put grease, oils, chemicals, and certain food items down your drain to keep your pipes and water safe. Things like coffee grounds, eggshells, and fruit and vegetable skins are likely to eventually clog your drain or break the disposal system.

3. Take preventative measures in freezing temperatures! Invest in quality insulation for all of your plumbing pipes, especially ones that are in unheated areas such as crawl spaces, attics, and garages. Check out this post to learn how to disconnect all outside hoses and water lines to avoid any bursting pipes. Always remember to keep your home heated when you go on a winter vacation so you don’t come home to a plumbing disaster!

4. Know when to call a professional! We get a lot of calls from homeowners who need a professional fix after attempting to do the repair themselves. Even though it may seem more cost effective, trying to do the repair yourself sometimes leads to a bigger, more expensive problem. Some problems you can handle on your own, but don’t hesitate to call Drucks for honest, superior service when the problem is too big to tackle. We stand behind our service and strive to deliver the best possible experience for our customers!
