How To Prevent A Plumbing Disaster

When it comes to your plumbing system, the saying “out of sight, out of mind” seems to apply. Many homeowners forget to maintain their home’s plumbing system simply because pipes are hidden away in the walls. However, preventative maintenance can actually prevent a plumbing disaster. Below are some steps you can take to do just that.

  • Inspect your water heater once a month. If you spot something unusual with your water heater, do not attempt a “Do-It-Yourself” project. Some things are best left to our professional plumbers.
  • Do you have outdated plumbing fixtures? If so, they are not just an eyesore. They could actually hinder your plumbing system’s efficiency. Upgrading to new plumbing fixtures will enhance the look and functionality of your plumbing system.
  • No homeowner wants to discover a clogged drain. To prevent this from happening, there are certain items that should never make their way down the drain. Never put food particles, oil, fatty fluids or hair down the drain.

If you experience a plumbing disaster in your home, don’t have a meltdown. Instead, turn to the professional plumbers at Lancaster Plumbing, Heating and Cooling. Whether you have a leaky faucet or a busted water pipe, you can rely on us for timely plumbing repairs. Call 717-207-8198 to request emergency service.
