Avoid These Toilet Habits and Avoid Costly Repairs
It may seem like the fastest and easiest way to get rid of something, but your toilet is simply not designed to be a trashcan. Think of your toilet as a gateway to your plumbing system, which includes your drains, pipes and septic tank (if you have one). If you are flushing anything other than human waste and toilet paper down your toilet, your entire plumbing system is at risk. This could result in clogged pipes, damaged pipes, backed up septic tanks and much more.
Why You Need a 24-Hour Plumber
Unless you live in a very rural area, you’ve likely got countless plumbers to choose from. Beyond making sure your plumber holds the proper licensure and insurance, it is also important to ask about their business hours or availability. If your plumbing company doesn’t offer 24-hour service, you may want to rethink your choice. 24 hour plumbers exist to address one main thing – plumbing emergencies! Who wants to be caught without professional help when an emergency occurs?

Understanding Gas Leaks
While they are rare, a leak in your gas line can be extremely dangerous and even fatal for your family if it is not detected and addressed in a timely manner. Beyond having your gas line inspected annually by a professional, it is important that you understand what can cause a gas leak in your home and how to detect the warning signs early.
What Goes on During a Septic Tank Pumping?
If your home uses a septic system, you know that your biggest responsibility is to have your septic tank pumped on a routine basis. Depending on the size of your tank and number of occupants in your house, this is often every 3 to 5 years. Unless you are a state certified contractor with experience in septic plumbing, this is not a DIY job. But it does require that you contact your trusted septic services company and schedule the pumping appointment.
