How Can I Make my Plumbing Last Longer?

How Can I Make my Plumbing Last Longer?

  • Your pipes are operating round the clock. Whenever you run the washing machine, flush the toilet, brush your teeth, fill the bathtub, or shower to your heart’s content, your pipes are working. Sum up everything and imagine how many gallons of water you use every day. Yes, that’s a lot of water movement and a lot of work to do!
  •  
  • Considering the workout your plumbing gets every day, it is no wonder the pipe surface can thin out, develop leaks, and even burst over time! Whilst, you can’t stop your pipe from entirely regressing, you can slow down its impact with a little TLC and effort. Here are a few ways to do it.

few ways to make your plumbing last longer

        Maintain a balanced water pressure. 

  • High water pressure tends to speed up corrosion on pipes and their connection. That means your home’s PSI should stay below 85 to ensure pipe safety. If you’re unsure of the water pressure in your home, you can hire a licensed plumber to adjust it to the right level. If you have copper pipes for plumbing, you may want to consider installing a water pressure gauge so you can keep a closer eye on it. Copper pipes are especially vulnerable to excessive water pressure because of their thin walls and smaller diameter. Investing in a water gauge whether or not you have copper pipes is a smart decision to monitor water pressure. The water pressure gauge is attached to your plumbing fixture or anywhere near your home’s main water supply line.
  •  

        Avoid using chemical drain cleaners. 

  • For many homeowners, the solution to every blocked drain problem is to dump chemical clog remover down the drain. Perhaps this is what you might have been doing. Despite its effectiveness, the unblock drain Sydney professionals do not recommend chemical drain cleaner as it can only do more harm than good on your pipe. Chemical drain cleaners can not tell the difference between the clogs they are clearing and the pipes they are in. Once they eat away a clog, they will keep eating it. That is why you should follow the required amount on the instructions when you use it. The problem with chemical drain cleaners is it contains harsh elements that could inflict minor to irreparable damage to your pipes.
  •  

        Don’t leave leaks to go undetected. 

  • Small leaks may seem like no biggie matter, but unfortunately, they never are. Drips and leaks do more than wastewater; they can damage fixtures and cause structural damage in your home. The constant dripping of even the tiniest leak at the connection wears out pipes. As the pipe connection wears out, they become worse. As they get worse, they will eat your pipe away. It’s the worst kind of ferocious cycle–an expensive one. 
  •  
  • To save yourself from future leaks, install a leak detection system. A leak detection system shuts off the water flow in your entire home by closing a valve within the leak detector when abnormal water flow behaviour is detected. It has Wi-Fi connectivity to give you the ability to monitor your water usage in real-time via your phone or computer.
  •  

        Respect your toilet.

  • Your toilet only meant to take some elements that break down. Treat it nicely! Don’t flush things that do not belong there. That includes wet wipes, Q-tips, even hair–no matter how tempting. When you flush non-soluble elements down the toilet, parts of these elements break off in your pipes. Flushing too much tissue paper in your toilet is also terrible for your drains. Over time, those broken off pieces and tissues collect other debris and form clogs. Keep trash bins close to the toilet. It will make disposing of non-flushable items easier.
  •  

        Give importance to regular drain cleaning.

  •  Debris and gunks usually take time to form build-up inside the pipes. The more gunk builds up, the more the pipe is stressed as it requires more work to do to transport water. Over time, all that work can exhaust the interior of your pipe until they start leaking. The same will happen when tree roots grow inside the pipe, or a foreign item has found its way.
  •  
  • Regular drain cleaning will help you avoid build-up and other potential clogs. Your drains will work more effectively, and you won’t have to worry about clogs or leaks – fewer chances for your sewers to get blocked as well. 
  •  

        Don’t ignore slow drains. 

  • All of the tips listed have one purpose: to reduce the amount of stress on your pipes. Slow drains are a sign of a blockage somewhere in your drainpipe or the sewer. Blockages almost always make the pipe take a beating. The more pressure builds up inside your pipes, the harder they have to work and the speedier they wear out. 

  • If you ever notice your water is taking time to flush, don’t just ignore the problem. Attempt plunging or snaking the drain right away. If that doesn’t work, call a blocked sewer Sydney specialist. Under any circumstances, never put a slow drain off until the last minute. The problem won’t go away by itself and will only get worse.
